They recreated all a small home and previewed the latest and greatest technology products in a homelike environment and welcomed customers to touch and try everything. We were immediately greeted by experts in Blue Shirts and the Geek Squad who walked us through the home and told us all about the CE and Connected Home. They were great as always, and I must say that I’m a fan of Best Buy’s In-Home Advisors as they got us up and running with our tv’s when we moved into our new house.
Best Buy and Philips Hue can create the perfect ambiance. Philips Hue has created a smart lighting system to help overhaul your home including the bedroom. By using your smartphone via the app, you can enhance your home experience more. The Philips Hue smart lighting system allows you to easily control and manage your highly energy efficient LED lights from your smartphone. Mom’s we’re able to schedule lights to turn on, so we don’t walk into a dark home. When we travel on vacation, we can turn the lights on and off allowing the house to see lived in, while we’re away. You can even use the system for the kiddos rooms by providing a sunrise or sunset ambiance in their rooms. And last but not least, you can even create a “mood” for you and your spouse in the bedroom that might lead to a fun night for the both of you!!
The bedroom at the Best Buy Tech Home in Atlanta showed the Philips Hue LED White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit. If you’re not into that much color, there’s a “white only kit” available. Studies have shown that various types of lights affect our mood including “white” options, including “energize” (which wakes you up), to “concentrate” (which helps you study more effectively), to “relax” (softer yellow shade), plus the 16 million color options to reflect whatever mood or experience you want to convey. There are so many ways to help create such an ambiance as this in your home including the mandatory “Hub” which comes with the starter kit and app. You can also use Philips Hue Go Multicolor Smart LED Personal Wireless Lighting System (SKU 5938038) Portable and wireless, with up to a 3-hour battery life. And while you’re at it if you’re like me with little ones consider the Philips Hue Multicolor Lightstrip Plus Extension (3.3’) for the ultimate flexibility – you can shape, bend, cut and add extensions – great for under beds or behind the television.
