Philips' Internet-connected bulbs pack in a bunch of features, but they're a bit pricey. Are they right for you?By Mikah Sargent | June 30, 2015
The Internet of Things is fast- and ever-growing, and there are a few companies out there that have taken the lead on bringing Internet-connected objects to the masses.
Like Philips, which makes a range of Internet-connected light bulbs in various sizes and shapes.
The range is called Hue, and the standard starter kit, called the — you guessed it — Philips Hue Starter Kit, contains three LED bulbs and a little device called a Hue bridge, all for $199.99. You can buy individual Hue bulbs for $59.99, and each one has a 15-year lifespan.
