Philips has greatly expanded its selection of smart home lighting over the years, but we always come back to recommending its white and color ambiance bulbs for smart home newcomers. The bulbs can be set to one of 16 million colors using an app (iOS and Android) or your voice through whichever smart assistant you use. The Philips Hue app allows you to set the bulbs to turn on and off at a custom schedule or recreate the exact lighting conditions (and color) from a photo of your choice. If you have a picture of a sunset you saw years ago, these smart light bulbs can help you recreate that moment. Also included is the Philips Hue Bridge, a device that connects to your home’s internet connection to guarantee better performance in and outside your home. Yes, you can control these lightbulbs from anywhere worldwide once they’re configured. If you’re curious about smart lighting—or starting a smart home in general—this is the best Prime Day 2023 deal for you.
