I'm sure by now we've shined the light on enough Philips Hue deals for you to know all about the WiFi connected bulbs. I mean, you're a bright bunch, I don't think I can really illuminate any new details about the system that you haven't read before.
If you've had even the dimmest impression that you'd like to try a smart lighting system, then you really should take a look at the deal Best Buy has going on right now. You can grab a Philips Hue 2nd Gen Starter Kit for the glowing price of just $94.99 – a price which is a lot lighter on your wallet than the normal $180. Read More
BestBuy has a sweet deal going on today. You can pick up a Phillips Hue A19 starter kit (3 bulbs plus a hub) and an Amazon Echo for $260.40. That's about $120 less than you would pay if you bought each item separately at full price. This a great combo for those of you wanting to add some tech to your home to make it a little smarter.

Smart home technology is great. The Nest Learning Thermostat, Phillips Hue, and Sonos sound systems are wonderful products that make life more convenient, automated, and beautiful. These technologies are great, but many components in a smart home are controlled by applications from a smart phone or tablet. Having to pull your phone out of your pocket and unlock it every time you want to turn off the lights while watching a movie can be a little annoying.
Fortunately, the Logitech Harmony Home Control makes running a smart home a little easier. The remote works great for controlling your media center, but it also can be programmed to control many different home automation devices. Read More
Every once in a while, a truly cool idea ends up on Kickstarter, and LightFreq is one such case. It's simple, really: a Bluetooth speaker married with a Phillips Hue-like light bulb. So, a color-changing speaker in your ceiling. Yep, I'm already sold.
There will of course be companion apps available for both iOS and Android that not only control the music and lights, but also allow the handset to work with LightFreq for an in-house intercom system. That's pretty neat. Oh, and if you have multiple LightFreqs, it'll detect when you leave the room and turn off the lights and music when you enter another room (where the lights and music will automatically come on).
