Philips Hue Go and Starter KitHalloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Fourth of July, birthdays, anniversaries. These are events that a lot of people decorate for. And we usually need some lights that would look good with our decorations. Now setting the right mood using lights inside your home has become a lot easier with Philips hue!

With a Philips hue Starter Kit, we can easily adjust colors, timers, alerts and more from our phone or mobile device. No need to buy several bulbs of different colors so that we can get the right mood for our rooms.

Not only does it help create the right mood for decorations, Philips hue is also perfect for easily creating the right light setting for reading, relaxing, concentrating and many more. Now you won’t ever have to settle for a bulb that’s loo bright or too dim, too yellow or too white, etc. Because you have an app that controls the brightness and the color of your Philips hue bulbs, you can set the bulbs to light up exactly the way you want it! You can also easily maintain an automatic schedule while you’re vacationing – so that it looks like you’re home.

Philips Hue RoomsNot included in the Starter Kit is the Philips hue Go. It’s that big round light in the first photo above. The hue Go is a portable, completely wire free smart light that you can take or put anywhere. You can either plug it in or carry it with you with up to 3 hours of rechargeable battery life.

The hue Go has 5 patented “natural dynamic effects” — Cozy Candle, Sunday Coffee, Meditation, Enchanted Forest, and Night Adventure. Each dynamic effect has its own mix of colors to set the right mood. The hue Go can be controlled using the on/off switch or via the hue app on Android or iOS (hue bridge required).

It can be used as personal reading light in a dark room. We can create bright lighting in a room with little existing lighting or no electrical outlets. We can use it as a kid’s night light. Or maybe take it outside to provide ambiance on the patio.

But all these awesome things — setting brightness, colors, timers, etc — can only be done when you have a bridge (included in the Starter Kit) which should be connected to your router. And the best router I’ve tried so far is the new Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter with Geek Squad included – new and exclusively available at Best Buy.

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, from smartphones, to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network — especially the router. Many households may experience slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or experience “dead zones”.

This Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music. The Netgear® Nighthawk™ AC1900 comes with one DST, or “Dead Spot Terminator,” adapter – to eliminate your Wi-Fi dead zones; place it in an area where you get little/no reception to improve Wi-Fi access.

Best Buy makes it easy with Geek Squad Set Up and Support via phone and web for one full year! The Geek Squad service allows customers to call or get help 24/7 whenever they want, versus the need to schedule an appointment.

So far, I’m really enjoying my experience with both the Philips hue lights and the Netgear Nighthawk Router! And I hope you can try these products out too!
