The Philips Hue Beyond is one of the best starter pendant light kits on the market for anyone looking to enter into the world of smart lighting. The Beyond works by connecting to Alexa on Amazon Echo, Apple Homekit, and Google Assistant for voice control and you can even have this customized to your preferences via the Philips Hue App.

The light comes in a sconce configuration with a 16-inch diameter body and is available in 10 different finishes: white, black, stainless steel, chrome, brushed nickel, grey, medium oak, grey oak, and champagne. The grey oak and champagne looks like it is a Hacienda Sunset version of a pendant light.

Depending on the type of bulb you'll be using, the Beyond light will run for anywhere from 15 to 23 hours, respectively.

The energy used will be calculated on a monthly basis, not on a per-light basis.
