The official Best Buy eBay storefront offers the Philips Hue Color Ambiance Three-Bulb Starter Kit with Hue Switch for $139.99 shipped. Also available directly from Best Buy. Typically you’d pay $190, with today’s offer matching our previous mention and coming within $20 of the all-time low. Featuring three Color Ambiance LED bulbs, this bundle comes with the Hue Bridge alongside the brand’s dimmer switch. All of its inclusions make this starter kit a notable way to built out your smart home. And since it works with Siri, Alexa and Assistant, you’ll be able to command the multicolor lights with your preferred assistant. Over 1,065 customers have left a 4.8/5 star rating.

Update 8/21 @ 3:50 PM: Amazon offers the LIFX Beam HomeKit Light Bar Starter Set for $109.99 shipped. Normally selling for $150, it just recently dropped to $118, a price you’ll still find at Best Buy. Today’s offer brings it down the extra $8 and saves you a total of 26%. Best of all, this is the best price we’ve tracked to date. Rated 4.2/5 stars and you can learn more in our launch coverage. I personally own the LIFX Beam, and find it to be a nice option for ambient lighting if Nanoleaf is a little too flashy for you.

Also on sale today over at Woot is Philips Hue White A19 60W Two-Bulb Starter Kit for $44.99 Prime shipped. Normally $70 at Amazon, today’s offer is $5 under the all-time low there and one of the best we’ve seen. You’ll get HomeKit capabilities here, but ditch the multicolor design for two dimmable bulbs. Rated 4.2/5 stars from over 1,365 shoppers. 

A great way to put your savings to work is by picking up an extra dimmable Philips Hue White Bulb for $13.50 each. Or if you like the idea of more physical controls to complement your smart home, Lutron’s Aurora Smart Bulb Dimmer Switch is a notable option. It installs over an existing light switch and adds dimming capabilities to your setup. Best of all, Lutron’s smart switch works with the Hue ecosystem. Learn more in our announcement coverage
