Score a $60 Prime Day discount on the Philips Hue 3-bulb color starter kit

Philips Hue smart lighting products are generally regarded as the leader in the market, but they haven't always been the most affordable. However, when a sale rolls around like Prime Day, we often see discounts making the barrier to entry much lower. Right now, you can get in on the Philips Hue ecosystem today for much less with $60 off this Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance starter kit (opens in new tab). The 3-bulb plus hub set is down to $99.99 marking a new low price. Alternatively, the White version (opens in new tab) is just $59.99.

Smart bulbs are often the first step people take when creating a smart home, and for good reason. The bulbs are intuitive, easy to use, and actually save you money over time since they use so little energy. Setup is extremely simple. Just screw in the light bulbs, download the Philips Hue app, connect the included Bridge to your Wi-Fi network, and you're good to go. Choose from millions of different colors plus a wide range of white shades, all with a few taps on your phone. For example, you could choose a fun color for party lighting, set your front porch lights to your team colors, or create the perfect environment for reading. You can also control the lights with your voice and something like Google Assistant (opens in new tab) or Alexa (opens in new tab) or set up schedules based on your daily routine with Apple HomeKit.

Once you inevitably get hooked on smart lighting, you'll want to check out Philips' broad array of options (opens in new tab) including bulbs, strip lights, outdoor lights, and much more.
