Black Friday is the perfect time to start or expand your smart home lighting and speaker setup, and saving $60 with this Amazon Echo bundle is the deal to get it done.

2020 is the year that Amazon completely changed up its smart speaker design, and at the center of that is the new Echo 4th gen. Gone are the days of the cylindrical plastic-clad monolith speaker, and now begins the more approachable cloth-covered sphere.

This new materials and shape brought the opportunity for Amazon to improve nearly all aspects of how the speaker sounds — and Amazon took full advantage of it. Packed with an upward-firing woofer for deep, clear bass and two tweeters that deliver crisp highs and mids for excellent sound no matter what you are listening to. Adding in perfectly tuned microphones ensures your voice commands to Alexa are heard when making requests to your digital assistant.

Also built-in to the new Echo is a Zigbee hub, which means that the speaker can act as a hub for smart home gadgets. One such device is light bulbs, and some of the best out there are the ones from Philips — the ones included in this deal. Hue bulbs are highly responsive and offer excellent brightness. Paired up with this Echo speaker is the start of a wonderfully smart home setup.
