Fans of home automation can pick up something of a bargain right now, with the latest third-generation Philips Hue White & Color Ambiance Starter Kit available for just $168, down from the usual asking price of $200 which is the price the kit is currently selling for at other online stores.

It is also the cheapest this particular product has ever been, so don’t expect it to drop further any time soon.

For your $168 you will receive three Color LED light bulbs as well as a Hue Bridge 2.0 that is capable of tying into new fewer than 50 bulbs at any one time. Those with even the largest homes will likely find that is plenty for them, with each bulb able to kick out 16 million colors and 50, 000 shades of white light.

Color your home with 16 million colors and 50 thousand shades of white. Sync your lights with music, TV and games for an immersive effect. Set the mood in your home with your favorite shades of white. Use warmer whites to help you read and relax or cooler whites to concentrate and energize. Simply describe the shade of white you want such as warm white, cool white, daytime or even candle light.

With support for controlling the Philips kit via the likes of Amazon’s Alexa-powered Echo and Google’s Assistant-powered Home, these bulbs could be a great starter kit for those just setting out into the world of home automation. Apple’s HomeKit is also supported as you might expect, so those who have spent a small fortune building out an Apple-controlled home automation system can rest easy in that regard, and be assured that Siri can easily control your latest installation.

If the Philips Hue White & Color Ambiance Starter Kit hits the spot for you, order ASAP to ensure you don’t miss out on this deal.
