The Hue Starter Kit will go on sale in India from today at a price of Rs 16,995. The Hue Lamps are also available separately too at Rs 3,995. But these are aimed at customers who previously own the Hue Starter Kit, as those LED bulbs are useless without the bridge.

Online users can purchase the device at Snapdeal too.
