Tech for Mom: Amazon Echo and Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit from @BestBuy #amazon #alexa #bestbuy #PhillipsHue

We live in a Smart Home. We kind of just have to because of the way technology is today and because of how busy we are. I wouldn't change a thing and in fact, as technology develops, I find myself getting so excited for new items to come out. We hope that you love this Tech for Mom: Amazon Echo and Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit from @BestBuy #amazon #alexa #bestbuy #PhillipsHue post.

Do you want your home to get a little smarter AND brighter? A few years ago, I wrote about the Philips Hue when it first came out and to this day, I still love it. I love being able to control my lights from my phone and I especially love that I can even change the colors of the light. My youngest child sometimes thinks that we are magicians because of the cool things that we can do with the lights.

Our smart home just got smarter because now Philips Hue works with Amazon Alexa to control your lights. All with your voice. You can use Alexa Voice Service to turn off the lights when you are going to bed, turn them on when you get up in the morning, dim the lights in the room or even choose your favorite color. They are constantly adding new functionalities to provide you with the best, most technologically advanced, voice controlled lighting experience.

Why Amazon Alexa and Philips Hue?

Control with your voice

Simply ask Alexa to “turn on all Hue lights”, “turn off all lights ” or “dim my lights to 50 percent”. You can also control specific rooms or lights, by saying “Alexa, turn on living room” or “Alexa, turn on desk light”.

Change the tone of lights

You can also change the white tone of your Hue lights, from warm to cool white light. Ask Alexa to “turn bedroom to warm (or cool) white”. You can also make the light in your room warmer or cooler, by asking “Alexa, make my bedroom warmer (or cooler)”. Perfect when you want to relax or need extra light to concentrate.

Recall your favorite scenes

Add a touch of color to your home with Philips Hue and Amazon Alexa. Just ask Alexa to “turn living room to orange”, or any other color you can think of. You can also recall your Hue scenes by saying, “Alexa, turn on tropical twilight in living room”.

You have convinced me I need it in my life. Also the Philips Hue lights are amazing. I think I read about them here before and really was interested them. And frankly let’s be honest here – BEST BUY is the best place to get all of these things. It’s my Go to for gifts and for technology always.

  24. Changing the tone of lights sounds really neat! It would be great for warmer or cooler lighting when taking pictures too! 

  25. We have both and have them hooked up together. Nice being able to control the lights through it. Only drawback is sometimes they get disconnected and it takes two tries to get it to respond.

  26. I don’t have the Amazon Echo and Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit but it seems so great. It is great to change up the lighting on demand.
