Since the season is changing I love looking for different things to add to my home décor, whether its new chairs, pictures, couch, rugs or new lighting. So when I was asked to give the new Philips Hue personal wireless lighting system and Hue Go a try, I was like yesssssss indeed! After all who wouldn’t want to try out some new technology products for their home? Shoot, I love anything pertaining to technology!!! Among all the members in my family I would say I’m the geek of technology…lol!!


Being able to experience the Philips Hue Personal lighting system and Hue Go mulicolor smart personal lighting will surely be the conversation piece around my home today!


Now trust me when I say neither of these products were hard to set up! It’s an easy peasy  installment with a simple App for both systems. Before you know it, your system can be up and ready for you to enjoy via app and smartphone! Experience a new world for home lighting and transform the way you use light by adjusting colors, timers, alerts and more from your phone or mobile device. The bulbs, accessory lights and bridge work with your Wi-Fi to let you create mood-setting color schemes, or enjoy the right light setting for reading, relaxing, concentrating and much more. You can also easily maintain an automatic schedule while you’re vacationing – so that it looks like you’re home.


I decided to bring my family room to life with one of the Hue Go sets since we love to watch movies. I wanted to set the tone of relaxation and tranquility!   The great thing about the  hue Go light is it’s a portable, completely wire free smart light that offers a lot of versatility for any lighting need. Even if you’re a late night reader you still can enjoy this light. Or how about a nice small intimate party, the ambiance from this light would be just what you need as you sit back and dine and enjoy the colors! Just plug it in or carry it with you and enjoy up to 3 hours off a rechargeable battery life.

o   Although Hue go is not waterproof, it is designed to withstand high humidity.

o   Control your way – with the on/off switch on the light, or via the hue app (hue bridge required)

o   Use it as personal reading light in a dark room, create bright lighting in a room with little existing lighting or no electrical outlets, use it as a kid’s night light, or take it outside to provide ambience on the patio


The Philips Hue Personal lighting system is phenomenal, it will add so much lighting effects to your home.  Plus being able to change the lights according to your mood is great as well. There are many pre-set lighting options via the Hue App, this system is beyond intelligent it’s a fantastic!


Now with the  Phillips Hue Personal lighting, you can place these single bulbs anywhere in your home. Living room, bedroom, den even bathroom if you wish. Image changing up the lights while you’re listening to smooth jazz on the couch. You can even change the color of each bulb independently, and even change the brightness of each bulb. OMGoodness my life has now been changed due to this  Phillip Hue Personal Lighting Kit! hueset  Now available to you in the starter kit are 3 light bulbs and the bridge. The bridge connects to each app that you download for your Philips Hue personal lighting system.

Both these awesome products has so much to offer, they are not your ordinary lighting systems. They offers 5 patented “natural dynamic effects”: Cozy Candle, Sunday Coffee, Meditation, Enchanted Forest, and Night Adventure.

Whoa Nellie , awesome right!!

But hold on and wait a minute as my kids say….we also was given the opportunity from  BestBuy to check out the new home networking system from Netgear.

netgearNow the Netgear is a powerful piece of equipment that you need to have in your home. Best Buy and Netgear has teamed up together to bring to you an awesome home networking system. I knorw you’re asking what do it do? Well, it is designed for homes like mine and yours that have many devices attached to our wireless router.

It’s a new router called the Night Hawk DST AC 1900. The Netgear Night Hawk DST AC1900 actually is a all-in-one solution to support your home’s connected devices. As the number of Wi-Fi dependent products increase in a home – the average US household has 7 “connected devices” – from smart phones (often several in a home), to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network, especially the router.

This high-performance router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming. Another great feature is this router has the ability to help improve those dead zones within your home by the use of the 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. Additional adapters can be purchased for other dead zones. Plus Best Buy offer free Geek support to help you get set up properly.



Well, that will do it but listen! If you haven’t had a chance to visit Best Buy to grab your Philips Hue personal lighting system, Phillips Hue Go and Netgear router, you better hurry! Between the Hue Systems and the new Netgear router I’m impressed and so thankful to have enjoyed them all here in my home. My speed from the Netgear router has been so much better. Now I’m off to set my lights for the “Waking Dead” is coming on soon and I want my lights to set the tone in my living room for the action!
