We love the Philips Hue smart lighting ecosystem at T3, bestowing it a maximum 5-star score in our Philips Hue review, as well as placing it right at the top of our best smart bulbs buying guide. It is the premium smart lighting platform of choice in 2019.
Unfortunately, Hue smart bulbs often come with a premium price point, too, which is why we are constantly on the hunt for great Philips Hue deals — we want the most people possible to experience the brilliance of the Hue smart lighting platform.
And this is why when we discovered Innr smart bulbs, a brand of smart lighting set up by ex-Philips employees that works seamlessly with the Philips Hue platform, we had to write about them. Not only do these bulbs look quality, but crucially they are actually far cheaper than their official Hue alternatives. They also work with Amazon Alexa and Google Home's Assistant as well, meaning voice control is guaranteed.
A good example of the saving on offer can be seen if you look at the Philips Hue White & Colour Ambiance E27 Twin Pack. These are retailing right now for £65.95 at Amazon, while their direct Innr alternative currently costs only £46.99, a direct £18.96 saving. Some models offer even greater savings, and are as much as half the price of their Philips Hue alternative.
