Philips Hue holds household name status for its smart light bulbs, but this flash Amazon deal can save you up to 44% on your smart lighting thanks to LIFX.
The LIFX Entertainment Bundle will set you up with two Mini Colour Wi-Fi LED bulbs and a Z flexible light strip starter kit, all for under £100, meanwhile, their individual bulbs are discounted well below Philips Hue’s current prices with some unique benefits thrown in. There’s no need to wait for the Black Friday deals with prices this low.
The Mini Colour bulbs available in this bundle are capable of bathing your room in over 16 million different colours, with programmable themes and routines to keep your home evolving with your day. There are also a thousand shades of white at your disposal if you’re after something a bit more traditional.
Where these bulbs seriously shine over Philips Hue, however, is in their ease of use. Gone are the days of scouting a new plug socket, or wiring yet another hub to your router. LIFX is a plug and play solution, with no need for a hub and full integration with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and Cortana.
LIFX bulbs are also compatible with IFTTT, Nest, Arlo, and Flic to keep your smart home connected. Use the LIFX app to schedule and adjust your lighting set up, adding new bulbs to your home quickly and easily.
The Z LED strip starter kit usually retails for £79.99 by itself, making the £94 bundle price all the more enticing. Included in the kit you’ll find the standard base and 2m of lighting. As with the Mini Colour bulbs, there are 16 million hues at your disposal here, with eight programmable colour zones per light strip. You can always extend your strip (bonus, those are on sale too).
