There are tons of smart home products out there and more than a few options for smart bulbs, but few if any are better than the Philips Hue brand when it comes to functionality and reliability, as well as options for smart lighting solutions depending on what it is you're looking to do for your own smart home setup. With the Philips Hue system you will need to have the Philips Hue Bridge in addition to the bulbs themselves, but that be costly. Luckily you can pick up a starter kit and right now the starter kit which comes with the Bridge and four smart bulbs is $20 off its normal retail price and is currently available for just $80.
As mentioned above the starter kit will come with the Hue Bridge and four Hue smart bulbs. These are the white smart bulbs and not the color ones, and with them you can link them up to your home's Wi-Fi network and control the lights via a smartphone app for turning them on or off, or even dimming them to a certain percentage. You can also control them via Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant, which means you can use your smartphone to do so through the hands-free voice integration or you can use any one of the Echo or Google Home smart speakers.
