Considering swapping out your old lamps for voice-controlled smart bulbs? Now may be your best chance as leading smart lighting brand Philips Hue launches its Bright Days Summer Sale.
Right now, the official Philips Hue store is offering a 30 percent discount on a selection of white and colour-changing smart bulbs, mood light strips and other indoor and outdoor lighting accessories.
The 30 percent discount is valid until June 26 for shoppers who buy two or more products in the store. The summer sale also includes a half-price offer on a smart indoor or outdoor lamp when you buy a set of 2 – handy for brightening up boring corners or adding some color and atmosphere to your outdoor garden parties.
Smart lighting doesn’t come cheap, and to get the most out of it, you usually need to connect a special hub to your WiFi router, which acts as a central command for every lightbulb in your home and garden. However, once set up, LED bulbs are energy efficient, inexpensive and last much longer than traditional incandescent bulbs.
Flash sales like these are your best opportunity to get started or add to your existing Philips Hue collection. New customers get 25% off the brand’s homemade starter kit, which gives you everything you need to get started and the flexibility to choose the bulbs that work best for your home.
We’ve gradually expanded our collection of smart lightbulbs for years, browsing them every time there’s a discount – our homes look like broken Christmas trees. To guide you on your journey to enlightenment, here are our picks of the best basic smart light bulbs and deals.

Like all Philips Hue products, it can be illuminated in a range of colors and controlled with your phone, your voice, or on a schedule.
Until June 26, the centris can be picked up at the Bright Days Sale with a 50 percent discount when purchased with another lamp.
