I got my first Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance lamps because they are the best of the best for colored lighting. But after spending $ 90 on two light bulbs, I opted for cheaper third-party options for all the accessories, such as switches and buttons. I didn't know I missed great first-party accessories at a surprisingly affordable price.
The price of the Philips Hue Smart Dimmer switch is very high considering the competition. This small device has two strips of tape on the back so it can be installed in seconds. You pair it with the same Philips Hue app you use with your lightbulbs, and it has special dimmer buttons and on and off switches.
The switch itself is magnetized on the wall plate so you can pull it off and use it like a remote control when you relax on the couch. In the app you can program the "ON" button so that different scenes are activated when you press it for the first time, when you press it twice, third, fourth or even fifth. Put simply, each time you tap "ON" the lights go through different modes.
There are really only two disadvantages. The "OFF" button and the brighten / dim buttons can only be programmed for their basic functions, and you can only use the switch to control one room or one light in your Hue hub.
But it's stylishly small switch. Although is mounted on the wall it does not protrude any further than a conventional paddle switch. Speaking of which, if you plan to use the Hue Smart Dimmer Switch as a replacement for a stupid wall switch in a rental property, I would recommend closing the old switches with a Mitzvah family magnetic switch cover so visitors to your home are asked to do so to use the Hue Switch
