If you didn't know, Philips Hue made smart home headlines last summer after launching a number of smart security products. Known as Philips Hue Secure, the new system allows users to monitor their home in real time, offering instant motion alerts and unique light and sound alarms to help deter intruders. It was a big move for the brand, allowing Philips Hue consumers to sync up their smart lighting to their home's security system.

After a quiet few months, Philips Hue has announced the Secure starter kit is available to buy on the Philips Hue website. Whilst it's currently only obtainable in the US, it's expected to be launched in Europe in the not too distant future.

The kit has an RRP of $399.99, and includes a Secure wired camera in white, two Secure contact sensors in white, two White and color ambiance E26 bulbs, as well as a Hue Bridge. Have a look for yourself:
