Home automation is taking off in a huge way around the world and manufacturers are falling over themselves to get in on the action. Philips was one of the first to take this stance with its Hue system, and we’re delighted to offer you the chance to get in on the action with 33% off a Hue Color Starter Kit.

As the name suggests, this is exactly what you need to get up and running with light-based automation in your home. The kit itself arrives with a total of two smart bulbs which are capable of displaying more than 16 million colors, including different temperatures of white.

This means that you can illuminate your space to your heart’s content. This kind of range allows for the home to be filled with glorious shades of clinical white or have individual scenes set up that rely on the color being passed throughout the home. The power is really in the versatility of the bulb.

Purchasers of the kit will also get the most recent Philips Hue Bridge hardware which connectors directly to the home WiFi network to ensure that the bulbs have internet connectivity. It’s this connectivity that is going to allow the Hue app to connect directly to the bulbs and for voice-based systems like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s Siri to control the bulbs with short and simple voice commands.

If you want your light in the living room set to 60%, simply bark out “Hey, Siri, turn living room light to 60%.” And your wish is granted. Obviously, that relies Siri, or a connected HomePod in your home, but the same logic applies to the other voice platforms such as Alexa and Google Assistant.

As far as light-based automation goes, Philips is still predominantly running the game with what it offers. The range is extensive and diverse, featuring both indoor and outdoor lighting, and this Starter Kit gives you the foundation that you need to bulb on the system and add more lights as and when you see fit. Definitely a great purchase for yourself or a loved one at this price range.
