Smart lights are a great starter point for building a smart home. And right now, smart speakers are cheaper than ever. You can get a Google Nest Mini or Amazon Echo Dot for less than the price of a large pizza (before toppings). Buying into a smart lighting system is a decision worth considering, though. There’s no brand in the segment with a longer or better reputation than Philips Hue.
Here are some of the best Philips Hue Black Friday deals to start your smart home or expand your current Hue setup.
Philips Hue White LED Smart Button Starter Kit $75 (Was $99)
The Philips Hue system typically requires a bridge that connects to your network and relays commands to all the bulbs throughout your home. This kit includes that hub, as well as three Philips Hue A19 white bulbs and a smart button to act as an ad hoc light switch. If you have an apartment, this might be all you need to outfit your whole home.
If you want wacky color options beyond shades of white, these adjustable bulbs can provide any kind of ambiance you want.
These multi-colored lights shine at the walls of your room to create a cool vibe that’s popular with Twitch streamers.
Philips Hue White Ambiance Adore Smart Lighted Mirror $209 (Was $249)
This is a full-on mirror surrounded with a ring of Philips Hue lighting. It connects to your system via the hub and provides a flattering halo of light for next-level selfies.
This strip light changes colors and can take just about any shape you can think of with a little help from some adhesive and creativity. You can even put it behind your TV in order to improve its overall picture quality.
