With just a smart home device you can change how you interact with your home. But to get the full smart home effect, you need at least some devices that all work together.

LiFX lights are $ 40 each on Black Friday. 19659007] Row Crist / CNET

Smart Bulbs: $ 80

Even if you collect the Google Home Mini with a GE lamp bundle you should still get some more bulbs.

I know that $ 80 for incandescent lamps seems steep, but it will last you years. Starting at 5 pm On Thanksgiving Day you can get a LiFX Multicolor Wi-Fi Smart Bulb for $ 40 each ($ 20 off) . These lights do not require a hub and connect to both Alexa and Google Assistant.

I recommend that you start with two lamps – one for your entrance and one for your bedroom. The input light can turn on when you get home so you will never fumble with your keys and the bedroom lamp can act as a Noise Alarm Clock .
