Why Philips Hue would make a great gift

A Philips Hue Starter Kit has everything you need to get smart lights at home. This particular kit comes with three B22 Bayonet Cap bulbs as well as the Hue Bridge. It won't take long to set up, you'll just need to download the Philips Hue app, install the bulbs and hook the bridge up to your Wi-Fi router. Then it's a case of following the simple instructions in the app, it should take less than 10 minutes all in all. 

Once you're up and running, the bulbs are pretty life-changing. They can be controlled using the comprehensive Hue app which will let you adjust the colour and brightness of the lights remotely from your smartphone. 

Whether you're having a family movie night, a New Year's Eve party or you're just getting stuck into a good book during that well deserved Christmas break, Philips Hue will be able to illuminate the room to match exactly what you need. 

That's not all you can do though. You'll also be able to group lights together so that you can change all of the lights in the room at once, set routines to have them come on or off at set times of day and even have them automatically turn on or off at sunrise or sunset. If you already own an Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant smart speaker then you'll be able to control the lights by voice, too.

Philips Hue is the best smart lighting system you can buy.

Now that this starter kit has dropped to less than £100, there has never been a better time to buy it.
