Smart lights are so convenient: They can obey your voice commands, be programmed to turn on or off by themselves, work together with motion detectors to light up when someone’s in the room and can create a relaxing atmosphere when coupled with other bulbs. However, the best way to produce a lovely setting with lights is by using colors. I love to use my Hue Iris and Lightstrip to design a dimmed ambiance with shades of blue in my living room when I want to relax.

Setting up a new device can sometimes be time consuming, as you need to unwrap it, plug it in, and go through the installation process before you can finally use it. To smoothen these steps, Amazon has created its “Frustration-Free Setup” program with “Wi-Fi simple setup”, so you won’t have to spend time authenticating when launching a new Alexa-enabled device for the first time.
The concept is simple: When purchasing a new compatible Echo or Fire from Amazon, the retailer automatically links it to your account. Read MoreAmazon Fire TVs won’t ask for your WiFi password during setup was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
Did you lock the door? Are you sure? The only way to be positive is to go and check, and walking is such a hassle. A smart lock like the one offered by August can fix that. It’s on sale today on Amazon for $99.99, which is $50 less than MSRP.
The August lock is unique among smart door locks because it doesn’t replace your existing deadbolt. It just attaches on top of the lock to open it manually when triggered. Read MoreAugust Smart Lock on sale for $100 ($50 off) at Amazon was written by the awesome team at Android Police.

The Paperwhite with 8GB storage is currently $99.99 ($30 off), and the 32GB model is $119.99 ($40 off).
