If you’re not familiar with smart lighting, it’s basically lighting that you can control via an app on your smartphone, or with your voice via a smart device like Amazon’s Echo or Google’s Nest devices. A lot of smart bulbs can shine lights in different colors, and you can customize lighting for different moods or routines.
For example, some colleagues at Insider Reviews just told me they set their Philips Hue lighting to sunrise-style lighting in their homes for the mornings. I use smart lights at home to turn on automatically at dusk and turn off at 2 a.m. — a routine I set in an app.
Philips’ Hue lighting is the cream of the crop when it comes to smart lighting due to its reliability, consistency, ease of use, and ability to be controlled remotely. If you don’t have one already, you’ll need a $60 Philips Hue Bridge — a internet-connected central hub that all the Hue devices connect to — to control the Hue outdoor smart lightning. It all works with Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple’s HomeKit — in short, it works with any smart speaker with any voice assistant.
Just for good measure, Best Buy also has a great deal on the Philips Hue dimmable LED Lightstrip Plus for $69.99, which is $34.99 off the usual $104.99 retail price.
