Best Buy, as a part of its Deal of the Day, offers the Philips Friends of Hue Bloom Luminaire Starter Kit for $99.99 shipped. Today’s deal is $80 off the original list price/Amazon, a match of our previous mention and the best current offering we can find.
Nearly 1,400 Amazon customers rate this lighting solution 4.2/5 stars. The Bloom Starter Kit includes two luminaire lights and a Philips Hue bridge that connects to your home’s Wi-Fi. These lights are capable of showing 16 million colors with custom automated schedules via iOS and Android apps. I’ve used Philips’ Hue for a few years now, this system is an ideal accompaniment to traditional lighting. The LED bulbs are more energy efficient and can be dimmed to your preference.
Philips offers a full line of Hue products that work in unison with the Bloom Luminaire lights. Apple’s HomeKit will be added via a firmware upgrade this fall alongside a recently announced Wireless Dimming Kit.
