Relaxation with the Philips hue Starter Kit and hue Go #BBYConnectedHome

Being a mother to four you can imagine how insanely busy my life is. Our days are so busy with preschool in the morning then running around all afternoon with my oldest kid’s activities. You can imagine that by 8pm I am ready to relax and have mommy time.

I instantly fell in love with the Philips hue Starter Kit and hue Go. The Starter Kit is everything you need to get started with Philips hue.  Experience a new world for home lighting and transform the way you use light by adjusting colors, timers, alerts and more from your phone or mobile device. The bulbs, accessory lights and bridge work with your Wi-Fi to let you create mood-setting color schemes, or enjoy the right light setting for reading, relaxing, concentrating and many more. You can also easily maintain an automatic schedule while you’re vacationing – so that it looks like you’re home.

The hue Go is just like the bulbs and are an add-on since you do need the the hue bridge (comes with the starter kit).  The hue Go is a portable, completely wire free smart light that offers a lot of versatility for any lighting need. You can take it or put it anywhere: plug it in or carry it with you with up to 3 hours of rechargeable battery life. Although Hue go is not waterproof, it is designed to withstand high humidity.

Control your way – with the on/off switch on the light, or via the hue app (hue bridge required). I set up the hue Go to my hue app and instantly have access to a portable light and I can take into the bathroom with me for relaxing baths.


My girls love to use the hue GO too!

You can manage hue lights from your smartphone or tablet and all hue lights work together. The free iOS- and Android-compatible app lets you adjust colors, brightness and functions without leaving your seat. Create a hue account to access your lights remotely by app or Web browser.


Now to have all of these awesome things connected through your home wifi we love that we can have so many devices on one wi-fi and better service with the NETGEAR Nighthawk DST Router.  This is a brand new router that was exclusively developed between Netgear, an industry leader in the networking world, and Best Buy, to help provide consumers with an easy, all-in-one solution to support their home’s connected devices. As the number of Wi-Fi dependent products increase in a home – the average US household has 7 “connected devices” – from smart phones (often several in a home), to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network, especially the router. With the interest in online gaming and 4k TVs, connected devices such as smart thermostats, plus the need to stream shows from Netflix or hulu, it places even more demands on the network. Many households may experience slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or experience “dead zones” – which could be improved upon with an “AC” router, Wi-Fi extenders and expert help.

Get some amazing ambiance with the Philips hue and hue Go.
