Philips is joining in on the Cyber Monday fun, having just discounted the entire portfolio of its smart lighting. The newly announced deals slash the prices of the company's products by up to 44 percent, which is a true rarity seeing how Philips is usually reluctant to put its flagship offerings on sale and even when it does, the discounts tend to be rather minimal.
Like its name suggests, the Philips Hue Starter Kit will provide you with the essentials of smart lighting, coming bundled with four A19 bulbs that are capable of lighting up in different shades of pure white. The Hue Bridge is also part of the package, allowing you to connect the bulbs to each other and also have them communicate with other Philips-made products from the same lineup so that you're able to set up a full-fledged smart home system. Seeing how the Hue Bridge usually retails for $60 on its own, paying that much for the entire starter kit is certainly a great deal. The Hue LightStrip Plus has also been treated to a massive discount and will currently set you back only $49.97 instead of its regular price of $90.
All of these Philips-made offerings are eligible for free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime and are currently rated as the best-sellers in their respective categories, making this major sale an even more welcome surprise. Philips didn't specify how long the newly introduced deals will last but don't expect them to be live for much longer, provided that the company's stock holds up in the first place. If you're looking for an affordable entry point into IoT and smart lighting for yourself or as a gift to that special someone this holiday season, these latest offerings are certainly worth your attention. Refer to the list below to check whether Philips's new deals are still live, which they were as of Monday morning PST.
