Right now you can get big discounts on some Philips Hue bundles that include smart lights, the Hue Bridge, and an Amazon Echo device. That's everything you need in one combination to go from a simple, dumb lamp, to a smart lighting system you can control with your voice.
Considering all the amazing Amazon device sales we've seen over the last week, you may have already bit the bullet on an Echo Dot or two. If that's the case, then you can invest in the $79.99 Philips Hue 2-bulb starter kit that doesn't come with another Echo device. It has two multi-color smart lights and the Bridge, which will bridge the lights and your voice assistant. It's the least expensive bundle featured in this sale and regularly sells for as much as $150.
If you do want an Echo device, you can get the same Philips Hue kit with a 3rd generation Echo Dot for $94.99. That's just $25 more for the Echo Dot, which usually sells for around $50. This is a $200 kit you're getting at more than half off.
There are several bundles in a wide variety of colors that all include the 2nd generation Echo speaker. Most of these bundles all go for $114.99. The bundle that includes an Echo with an Oak Finish goes for $134.99. Think about where you would place the Echo in your home and pick the color or texture that best suits that spot. It's such a useful device, it will become a permanent fixture I'm sure.
