Amazon is holding a huge Philips Hue sale as part of Black Friday. You can get light strips, bars and bulbs all at well below the usual price.
UPDATE - MONDAY 2 DECEMBER: It's your last chance to get a great Philips Hue deal during this Black Friday season. We've added another stunner from Currys, a bundle that includes two colour Philips Hue bulbs and an Amazon Echo Dot, to let you control the lights with voice commands. This is also the 3rd Gen Echo Dot, which sounds much better than the original.
Today is a good day to kit your home out with smart lights. A huge array of products from the Philips Hue range is on sale. There's much more than just bare smart bulbs too. You can get outdoors lights for the front of your home, or ambience strips for a light setup with real character.
Philips Hue White Ambiance Smart Bulb 3 Pack
£13 may sound a lot to pay for a lightbulb, but it's an outright steal for Philips Hue. You can use these as a smart wake-up bulb, or change the colour temperature throughout the day. Choose a cool tone for focus, a warmer one for a cosy feel.Buy now from Amazon
However, the three pack of white Ambience Philips Hue bulbs is the perfect place to start. These won't throw out any colour of the rainbow, just shades of white, but we find this is what we use with out own Hue bulbs 99.5% of the time anyway.
These bulbs no longer need a Hub either, unlike the earlier generations of Hue. You just plug them into the fixture and connect using a Hue phone app. If you live in a flat, this kit may be all you need. However, there's a lot more on offer too. Here are some of our favourites from the Philips Hue Black Friday sale on Amazon.
