Deal: Snap up four Philips Hue white smart bulbs for just $40 ($10 off)
More and more homeowners are interested in buying smart home devices. One of the easiest ways to get started in the smart home trend is to install smart light bulbs that can be controlled by your voice or a smartphone app. Today, Amazon has a nice discount on a four-pack of Philips Hue A19 white dimmable smart bulbs, which you can buy for the discounted price of $39.99
The discount is a nice $10 price cut from the four-pack’s normal cost of $49.99, and it means that each Philips Hue smart bulb costs less than $10. They do require the use of a Philips Hue bridge hub. You can purchase that with a $10 discount as well on Amazon as part of a Starter Kit for $59.39. If you go that route, the hub also comes with two more white smart bulbs.
Once you install the bulbs in your lamps and connect them to the Philips Hue bridge hub, you can use the Hue smartphone app to change the brightness manually for each bulb. You can also use the app to schedule when they are turned on and off, which can help a great deal for home security. Finally, the bulbs support voice commands through digital assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit. That means you can simply say, “Hey Google, dim the lights” for when you want to have a more romantic mood at home. It also helps that these LED lights should last for over 20 years.
