Great Gadgets


In a world dominated by smartphones, it’s no wonder that common household items are also becoming “smart.” But who would have ever thought of smart light bulbs?

Philips Hue Smart Bulbs are the smart devices you never knew you needed. For roughly $70, the starter pack includes two smart light bulbs and a Bridge hub. The hub plugs into your internet modem and connects via Bluetooth to your smart light bulbs. Once you download the Philips Hue app to your iPhone or Android device, you can control your lights from almost anywhere!

These bulbs may seem a little pricey, but for the convenience of remote control and the longevity of each LED bulb, they are definitely worth the extra cost. Feel free to sit down on the couch and simply say, “Hey Siri, dim the lights,” you’ll feel like your home has been jet-packed 100 years into the future. Ready to buy? Go to
