For less than the regular price of the Echo Dot, you're getting it plus two Philips Hue smart bulbs. Which makes for a really great deal.
Together, this bundle would normally cost you $79.98, but during this sale, it'll cost you jut $34.99. That is a really great deal and will make for a really great gift for anyone that is looking to get into the smart home products space.
These bulbs from Philips Hue are white bulbs. These are not the colored bulbs – which are normally around $40 each. Hence why these are cheaper. But you do have the option to change out the temperature of the bulbs. So if you want it to be more yellow, that can be done. Or if you want them to be more white, you can also do that.
As you'd expect, these bulbs work with Alexa for voice control. They also work with Siri and Google Assistant for voice control. And also work with just about every home automation system you can think of.
The app works really well, allowing you to control them from your smartphone.
The Echo Dot is bundled with these bulbs because the bulbs need a hub. And the Echo Dot can work as that hub. You see, Philips Hue bulbs (with the exception of the ones announced a few months ago) don't have WiFi or Bluetooth built-in. So in order to be "smart" bulbs, it needs to connect to a hub. Echo Dot has that functionality built-in, making it a great bundle to pick up.
Of course, the Echo Dot has Alexa built-in, allowing you to ask for things and even ask questions. It is a smart speaker, so you also can use it to play music.
