If you’ve been looking to give your living space a bit of a makeover, but are currently limited by space, money, or a particularly strict landlord, smart lighting is a great solution. With the simple flip of a switch, a smart light will let you change up the atmosphere and the look of a room.

While the Philips Hue range has firmly established itself as the big dog of smart lighting, it’s not exactly the cheapest option available.

With Black Friday kicking off right now, check out what you can save on Philips Hue’s lighting range. These deals will end November 29, so best to get in fast if you’re keen.

These Philips Hue smart bulbs let you pick from 16 million different colours, along with warm to cool white light, allowing you to perfectly control the ambience and mood of your surroundings. On top of being able to control the smart bulb’s scenes, you’re also able to program them to turn on and off during set times while also setting pre-defined displays.

There’s also a psychological benefit if you apply Colour Theory to your lighting choices. Having a thought time trying to get to sleep? Set the bulb in your bedroom to be a muted blue, warm red or dark pink. In the evening, set the light to a warmer tone, and it’ll help you to wind down and relax a bit better.

The Philips Hue Smart Bridge acts as an anchor point for controlling your home’s smart lights – even when you aren’t home. The Philips Hue Bridge is also compatible with virtual assistants like Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Google Assistant, which will allow you to activate these smart lights with your voice.
