Imagine coming home on a cold winter evening with your arms full of groceries and being able to simply say, “Alexa turn on the lights." Voila, like magic, your entryway is lit up. It may seem such a setup would require technical know-how — or at least a ton of smart-home gear. But that's not the case: Smart bulbs are easy to install and operate. And right now the super-popular Philips Hue Smart Light bulbs are on sale at a significant discount, at Amazon.
The three-bulb set usually sells for $135, and a single bulb for $47. But today, you can get three Philips Hue Smart Light bulbs for just $90. That’s like getting a third bulb free! All you need to use these smart bulbs is any Alexa-enabled device or any Google Assistant device. It's so simple.
Amazon Prime members can get their smart bulbs even faster, with two-day delivery on many items. Prime members also have access to thousands of streaming TV shows and movies, plus discounts at Whole Foods. If you’re not a Prime member yet, you can easily sign up here for a free 30-day trial.
Plenty of shoppers have successfully integrated the Philips Hue Smart Light bulbs into their homes – like this reviewer: “I love these lights…I have six bulbs spread between two bedrooms and a bathroom. I never bothered to look at the instructions the bulbs come with. If you have connected any smart devices to apps before, there isn’t much to it… I use the base wattage bulbs and they have been perfect for me..At 100 percent it’s more than bright enough for me...."
These Philips bulbs can be set to any of 16 million hues (yes, 16 million!). Why does that matter? Mostly because it can help your eye and affect your mood. The White ambience range has 50,000 shades of warm white or cool daylight hues. The reviewer above adds,"Colors look great and make my home office way more comfortable. Using a setting like “energize” in the office helps my eyes feel less sore.”
Colors can be easily controlled from your phone, via app. And if you want to set light schedules — say a warm glow for when you wake up in the morning, there's a Hue Hub where you can create routines.
More than 25,000 shoppers rave about these bulbs on Amazon. Says one, “... I have 19 bulbs in total around my home and am pretty happy with them…These have great adjustable white, color and brightness levels. My phone and app control has been totally reliable....”
And a reviewer who is sensitive to the impact of lighting shares something that can help us all: “This light is a dream come true… After being bombarded by awful lighting all day, you want to come home to a space that is comfortable and accommodating…I can honestly say this is completely worth it. I can choose brightness and warmth and color and I cannot begin to explain how helpful and important it is to me.”
