Start your smart home with 29% off this Philips Hue White & Color 4-Bulb Starter Kit

When most people start out a smart home, their first purchase ends up being a smart bulb or two. Smart bulbs are one of the most user-friendly smart home gadgets, with seamless installation, easy controls, and immediately noticeable improvements to a setup, which isn't the case with something like a smart thermostat or security cameras. If you're curious about smart home gear, but you haven't taken the plunge yet, consider the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit (opens in new tab). While it goes on sale semi-regularly, it always finds its way back to the $200 price point, and today Amazon has it on sale for $141.67. That total is also the best deal Amazon has ever offered for this particular pack.

If you don't have smart bulbs yet, this discount makes now the perfect opportunity to purchase some.

This kit includes four bulbs and a Hub, which are all the things you'll need to start using smart lights. Simply replace existing lights with the included A19 bulbs and you'll have access to over 16 million color options, plus multiple different white lighting schemes. Control the lights with your smartphone and a free app, or your voice and Amazon Alexa (opens in new tab) or another voice assistant. Each bulb lasts for over 25,000 hours, meaning that you'll save money compared to the costs of replacement bulbs before even factoring in the energy-saving LEDs that should lower your monthly power bill.

If you already have a smart home going, or you just want some extra smart bulbs around, you can also save on four Philips Hue White A19 bulbs (opens in new tab) for a limited time. We fully anticipate more Philips Hue deals, as well as other smart home discounts, for Prime Day 2019 next month.
