Being able to control your home's lighting is one of the key aspects to creating a comfortable, cozy existence. And with the latest smart lights, adjusting the brightness is as simple as saying, "Alexa, dim the lights." Of course, all that convenience usually comes with a hefty price tag — but not today. Until midnight, Amazon has slashed the prices of top-rated Govee smart lights. Act fast to grab smart string lights and cool LED strip lights for more than 40% of the usual sticker price.

Attach this light kit to the back of your TV and you'll feel like the screen is creeping out of the edges of your set. It increases the ambience and makes TV viewing sessions so much more enjoyable.

The Govee TV Backlight makes it feel like your TV is extending outside the edges of the display — plus, it eases some of the eye strain during those long binging sessions. Besides just improving the ambience, this kit can add a modern feel to older TVs. At 37% off, it's hard to say no.

"I had cheaper lights on my TV and upgraded to these. There's so many options for changing color, different settings and even setting timers. I bought two more and added them to all of my TVs. Highly recommend," one five-star fan said.

These string lights come with 48 feet of IP65 weather-resistant bulbs. Change their color to whatever you want or choose from over 40 preset scenes.

"These lights are perfect! So many options with in the app to change the colors and settings… you can even change each bulb to a different color! You will love them!" one user raved.

Got a dark room? Govee's night light doubles as a table lamp, sound machine and Bluetooth speaker with more than 60 music modes. You can even use the light for a gentle wake-up in the morning.

"Cute and fun," said a happy customer. "I was most interested in this light's white noise feature. There are 21 different sounds to choose from and the majority of them are relaxing. I've had great success with the thunderstorm, wind, or waterfall sounds. There is also a function for a gradual alarm. The light and sound of your choice gradually increases over 15-ish minutes allowing you to wake up more naturally. This is a real game changer for me. It's so much nicer than being jolted out of sleep by a noisy alarm. Between these two features, I'm getting better sleep."

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
