One of the things I had my electrician add when I remodeled my house in 2012 was to put an outlet above the kitchen cabinets in anticipation of adding lights at some point. A while back Steph and I saw these Philips Hue lights (shown below) on sale at Home Depot and we picked them up for my kitchen. I knew I wanted remote control lights and these smart lights fit the bill.
The hardest thing about installing these lights was dragging the 10" tall ladder from Steph's house and brining it into my house! Check out the simple install for these lights in the video above.
After this install, I wanted more lights! Steph ordered me three soft white bulbs for my lamps. I have two lamps that were on old school timers that would turn on and off at night. Now I can chuck the old timers and use the hue app on my phone to schedule them to turn on and off.
