Philips Hue holds household name status for its smart light bulbs, but this flash Amazon deal can save you cash on your smart lighting thanks to LIFX. There's no need to wait for the Black Friday deals with prices this low.

The LIFX bulbs available in this sale are capable of bathing your room in over 16 million different colours, with programmable themes and routines to keep your home evolving with your day. There are also a range of cool and warm shades of white at your disposal if you're after something a bit more traditional. 

Where these bulbs seriously shine over Philips Hue, however, is in their ease of use. Gone are the days of scouting a new plug socket, or wiring yet another hub to your router. LIFX is a plug and play solution, with no need for a hub and full integration with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple HomeKit, and Cortana. 

LIFX bulbs are also compatible with IFTTT, Nest, Arlo, and Flic to keep your smart home connected. Use the LIFX app to schedule and adjust your lighting set up, control bulbs individually, create your own custom light groups, and add new bulbs to your home quickly and easily.
