Grab a 3-pack of Philips’ Dusk-to-Dawn A19 semi-smart bulbs for a price of just $15.19 instead of the usual $27. This deal won’t last for a long time therefore get your fix without hesitation.

Sometimes we are all so preoccupied with the idea of filling our homes with smart technology that we forget that there is something to be said for the simple, unobtrusive solution. Light bulbs are a great example of that, because while we are definitely big on the idea of having the home full of smart bulbs, there is also a time and a place for a good old-fashioned bulb. And there are also times for something in between the two, and that’s exactly what the Philips Dusk-to-Dawn bulbs are.

If you are not familiar with what the Dusk-to-Dawn bulbs offer, you’re probably not alone. When you buy a bulb you’re getting something that throws out 2700K light and does so at a lower energy level than equivalent 601 incandescent bulbs. These bulbs will also last for up to 22,000 hours which is around ten times that of standard bulbs, leading to Philips’ offering of a full ten-year warranty for these things. However, where things start to get interesting is the reason they have the Dusk-to-Dawn name.

What makes these bulbs special is the inclusion of a special sun-sensor, something that allows the bulbs to automatically turn themselves on when it’s dark and turn themselves off when it isn’t. Think of these as a mid-way point between a standard bulb and a smart bulb, and you won’t be far wrong.

Right now you can grab yourself a bargain with these bulbs, too. If you shop at Amazon, you can pick up a pack of three bulbs for just $15.10, down from the usual $26.99.

Buy: Philips LED Dusk-to-Dawn A19 Frosted Light Bulb: 800-Lumen, 2700-Kelvin, 8-Watt from Amazon: $15.10 | Original price $27

That’s certainly cheaper than kitting your home out in Philips Hue!
