Amazon has a pretty good deal on a Philips Hue starter kit right now, coming in at $199. However, that price itself isn't a good deal, but it does come with the LightStrip Plus, which for $199, makes the bundle $76 off of its regular price. So it's definitely worth picking up right now, especially if you are looking to get started in making your home smarter.
The Philips Hue 4-Bulb Color Starter Kit includes four A19 colored bulbs that can do over 16 million different colors, but it also includes the Hue Bridge. This Bridge is needed to connect the bulbs and other Philips Hue products to your Internet and be able to control them with your smartphone. Unlike other smart bulbs out there, Philips Hue bulbs do not have WiFi built into each one. These are great because you can use them on any lamp in your home. Now the LightStrip Plus is great for putting under cabinets, or even behind your TV, giving your entertainment center a bit more color. It also makes it easier to watch TV when you have the lights off. Both of these work with the Philips Hue app, as well as voice assistants like Google Assistant, Apple's Siri and Amazon Alexa, so you can use your voice to control them as well.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap (usually $3.99) next-day shipping if you need it extra fast. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, you can sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime. You'll get 30 days free (if you're a student, you get 6 months), and then it's $119/year (or $49/year for students). Prime members do get a whole lot more than just free shipping though, so be sure to check out the full benefits.
