Philips Hue – pricing varies according to system requirements

Smart Home

So, we’ve covered lots of smart speakers for a smart home, but what else can you control with those commands? Well, the music of course. But also smart appliances. These remain relatively few, but more are appearing all the time.

What else? How about your loved one’s home lighting? Yes, you can get smart switches and smart lights. The Philips Hue system is one such. A smart home may have one or twenty smart lights, all or each able to be controlled by voice.

Do read our review to see how this works, and how there are an astonishing number of configurations available. If your loved one loves making things work, and isn’t daunted by tech, this could be just the thing they want, and maybe even need.
