If you have been looking to change your living space a bit, but are currently limited by space, money or a very strict owner, smart lighting is a great solution. By simply pressing a switch, a smart light will allow you to change the atmosphere and appearance of a room.
While the Philips Hue range has established itself as the great dog of smart lighting, it is not exactly the cheapest option available.
While Black Friday officially begins on November 26, there are a few early bird deals available right now on the Philips Hue lighting range.
What Philips Hue lights are on sale for Black Friday 2021?
The Philips Hue smart light bulb for white and color ambience is currently on sale for $ 289, down from the usual RRP of $ 314. This Philips Hue starter kit includes three of these smart bulbs, along with the Hue Smart Bridge.
A single white and colored Philips Hue ambient light bulb has a retail price of $ 98.98. Now multiply that number by three and add the $ 98.94 price tag for Hue Smart Bridge and you look at a total cost of $ 395.88.
Right now, you can get the Hue Smart Bridge for $ 64.65 and three white and colored ambiance bulbs for $ 69.95 each and you have a stellar package of $ 274.50. For now, it’s now cheaper to buy all four products separately than in the boot kit.
If you really want to decorate your home, you can give it your all by adding a gradient light strip for $ 299.95, down from $ 399.95. It is ideal for adding a little shine to your TV setup and allows you to seamlessly blend a rainbow of colors.
You can also combine the gradient light strip with a Hue Play extension, which can adapt to your space and be brought to your study or game room to add the perfect atmosphere to anything you do.

Lastly, don’t limit vibration to your interiors. Take it out with this LED garden projector. With 16 million colors to choose from, you will make the stylish summer barbecue. Maybe I’m even hosting an impromptu dance? You can buy the garden projector for 219.95 USD (RPP 307.95 USD) here.
What can Philips Hue smart lights do?
These Philips Hue smart bulbs allow you to choose from 16 million different colors, along with warm to cool white light, allowing you to perfectly control the atmosphere and mood around you. In addition to being able to control the scenes of the smart light bulb, you can program them to turn on and off within the set time, while setting predefined displays.
There is also a psychological benefit if you apply color theory to your lighting choices. Do you have time to think about trying to fall asleep? Set the light bulb in your bedroom to a dull blue, warm red or dark pink. In the evening, set the light to a warmer tone and it will help you relax a little better.

Philips Hue Bridge is also compatible with virtual assistants such as Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant, which will allow you to enable these smart voice lights.
