Best Buy is currently offering the Google Home and Philips Hue 3rd Gen Color Starter Kit Package for $178.99 shipped. That’s good for $100 of the going rate compared to buying both items separately, with the Google Home going for $130 and the Philips Hue Kit selling at $150. Today’s deal matches our previous as well and is the best available. Both share a 4.4/5 star rating.

If all the buzz around smart home tech has your interest piqued, this bundle is a great way to get started. There is a newer generation of Philips Hue bulbs on the market now, but the 3rd. Gen kit still gets you access to voice control and HomeKit support.

Google Home features:

  • Get answers from Google on things like traffic, finance, sports, weather, and more
  • Enjoy your music from services like Google Play Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, podcasts, and more
  • Control your smart home with just your voice
  • Google Home can distinguish your voice from others so you can have multiple users without having to switch between different accounts
  • Hands-free calling through your Google Home allows you to call your contacts and businesses in the U.S. and Canada

Philips Hue Color Starter Kit features:

  • Bathe your home in millions of colors (with improved, richer cyan, green, and blue) and shades of white light, tailored to your mood or need, controlled wirelessly via a smart device.
  • Controllable whether you are home or away, this starter kit adds three color A19 LED smart light bulbs (fits standard-size table lamps) with a Hue bridge that manages up to 50 lights.
  • Install the lights as you would install ordinary bulbs, pairing them with the Hue Bridge, which allows you to control smart-bulb-equipped lamps and overhead lights via the Philips Hue App.
  • Easily expand your smart lighting system with Hue accessories (sold separately), such as a dimmer switch, tap, or motion sensor. Pair it for automation with your existing Nest or SmartThings system.
  • Voice control capable with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, or Google Assistant, each kit includes three White and Color Ambiance A19 bulbs, one Hue Bridge, ethernet cable, power adapter, manual, and two-year warranty.
