The Amazon Echo Dot 2 is continuing to turn up in more and more smart home bundle deals lately. Amazon is currently offering the Echo Dot 2, the Lutron Dimmer Switch Starter Kit w/ Hub & Remote, and a second Lutron Dimmer Switch w/ Remote for a bundled price of $159.89. That deal gives you a savings of nearly $30 off buying the 3 items individually on Amazon, and $50 off their retail price. The Lutron bundle allows you to convert two light switches in your home into voice and remote activated switches.
The Lutron kit is ideal for ceiling lighting, but if you use tabletop or floor lamps, then a kit from Philips Hue is probably more ideal for you. Best Buy is currently offering a Philips Hue Starter Kit and Echo Dot 2 bundle for $99.99, which saves you $20 off buying everything individually. The included Philips Hue Starter Kit comes with two LED bulbs and the Hue hub. You can then add additional Hue bulbs for about $15 each if you’d like. Both smart home lighting solutions above work with Alexa on the Fire TV as well.
