Philips Hue Connected Bulb Starter Pack |
CNET RATING 4/5 stars (excellent) | THE GOOD Screw in the bulb, then use the app to change the color of the lightbulbs or preset on/off times. You can also set up Internet recipes, for example, the lights go on if you are sent an Instagram photo. |
THE BAD Three bulbs and a hub is expensive at $199. |
THE COST $199.97 to $249 |
BOTTOM LINE Worth it if you have a need for an Internet-connected, color-changing lightbulb.(Credit: Handout)
