If it weren't for the risk of wild geese, I think the Flamedeers might return coz this deal is so hot.

I preferred the stupid deals on the Colour bulbs and smart speaker starter kits from Black Friday, but for a straight budget start on smart lighting? Best price by far right now.

OP doesn't say if these are E27 or B22 bulbs (Edit: although @beergut points out the shelf label says B22), but a bargain either way and adapters aren't expensive.

E27 bulbs will go straight into the "two for 50p each" adapters from Ikea, and if you've got the choice, always buy E27 bulbs and standardize on them.

While no-one should pay full retail for Hue gear, a white starter kit on its own is £59.99.

If you'll all forgive me spamming my usual Hue intro...

If you are interested in home automation and/or voice control or just smart lighting, then the Hue route is a great place to start.

The Hue Hub is the thing that bridges between your network (for the app and the integration etc) and the bulbs (via Zigbee). You can get it separately (~£50), but it's better value to get it as part of a starter pack like this.

There's also a cut-down Hue hub built into the newer Amazon Echo Plus, so if you've already got an Echo Plus then there may be better options for you.

The Hue hub is the easiest and most popular smart lighting gateway. The app (on iOS and Android) have recently been upgraded to a new version (v3) which is a further improvement. Easy to schedule stuff (like gently waking up, or the lights to be turned on just before you get home from work), easy to control (the Hue Android widgets work great). Loads of third party apps too, like WinHue (Windows) and Hue Essentials (Android).

And you can then add extra bulbs, fancy devices (like motion sensors, or dimmer switches) and/or fancy lights (like light strips and the "Go" lamp) as it tickles your fancy.

There are three main types of the normal Philips Hue bulbs: White (these ones), White Ambiance, and White & Colour Ambiance.

White are a warmish white, with adjustable brightness.

White Ambiance have an adjustable colour temperature (and brightness). You can make them give a cool white light, a warm white light, or anywhere between. Great for bedrooms (wake-up with the blue-ish light, go to sleep with the red-ish light).

White & Colour ("color") Ambiance let you adjust the colour in fancy ways, like red, green, blue.

I use colour bulbs with Hue Sync for stupid Ambilight-esque effects with the TVs and monitors, the rest of my house is a mix of White (porch, front room), and White Ambiance (bedrooms). There's a Go for the front room table as well.

There are also Hue products like outdoor lights and lightbars for the TV etc.

There's easy and reliable integration with Alexa (Amazon), HomeKit (Apple), and Google Home. It's also compatible with IFTT and Home Assistant etc for real custom setups. Using Hue Sync, you can get the coloured setups to sync with what you're watching on TV, or what you're listening to. There are restrictions on the devices and setups you can use, but it's cool to see.

All the Hue devices communicate via Zigbee, which builds a mesh. That means the bulbs don't need to be in direct contact with the hub, so long as they can reach the hub via another bulb. The signal will span most houses so long as there are a decent number of bulbs spread throughout.

There are other options than Hue (WiFi bulbs like TP-Link's, other Zigbee systems like Ikea's Tradfri and Samsung SmartThings and some crazy Xiaomi stuff, and DeCONZ, Z-Wave systems and proprietary systems like Hive).

But Hue is the easiest, most popular, and best choice for smart lighting for most people. If you've got any questions, pretty much anyone who has tried it will rapidly become a product evangelist. It really is that good.

Which store?
Great deal.
Not bad. Only regular white bulbs, so not as good as that similar Black Friday deal from Currys. But still a good way to get started.

Checked in Tesco extra in Chesterfield, offer is only on B22 here, E27 is still £99.
