Philips Hue DEAL: Starter kit £70 for today ONLY

A limited-time offer on a smart home essential

If you’re looking to apply some smarts to your home, Philips has the answer. Right now, you can save a respectable £80 on a set of three Philips Hue spot lamps over at Amazon, and make controlling your in-home lighting simpler than flicking a switch.

For the uninitiated, Philips Hue is a smart light bulb brand that supports voice activation or remote control via an app. Inside the box, you’ll find the bulbs themselves, plus a Bridge that you’ll need to connect to your wireless router at home.

Once you’re set up, you can download the Philips Hue app, and take a stroll through the various options available. You can change the colour of your lights – there are some 16 million to choose from – and sync them with your TV, sound system or gaming setup for an altogether more immersive experience. 

Perhaps more sensibly, you can set schedules, routines and timers to make sure that you never have to dig out that ancient wall-plug timer when you go abroad or head out for the day. If you hate coming home to a dark house at the end of a bleak winter day, Philips Hue is a neat solution.

For those who have already adopted the smart home lifestyle and own an Amazon Echo device of some sort, Philips Hue has even more appeal. With Alexa support, switching on your lights at home is just a case of making the right noises in the direction of your Echo speaker. 

If you like the idea of yelling to switch on your living room lights, you’re in luck: Amazon is currently hosting a massive Black Friday sale that includes tasty discounts across the Echo smart speaker range (as well as offers on Fire tablets, Fire TV Sticks and Kindles). 

This Philips Hue offer expires tonight so, if it takes your fancy, be sure to act fast.
