Whilst Black Friday ended a few weeks a go, it doesn't mean that the deals come to a standstill. This year, multiple reasons meant not that many people took part in in the big retailer weekend. A lot of brands noticed this, causing them to continue many deals into December. I know, we couldn't believe it either! 

I personally have been keeping an eye any remaining smart lighting deals, particularly as I'm a huge Philips Hue fan. I love how easy their setups can be, and how much of a product choice there is. However, as wonderful as the brand is, it certainly comes at a price. 

Despite many Philips Hue products holding top spots in our best smart light switchesbest outdoor lights and best smart bulbs buying guides, I'm now turning to the alternatives. Below are 5 smart lighting products that serve as excellent dupes for the Philips Hue lights. Not only do they perform in a very similar way, but they're a fraction of the cost. Sounds pretty great, right?
