    Great, but room for improvements

    |
    Posted .

    I would say I am quite happy getting the hue Tap Remote Switch. I got one for the living room and one for the kitchen. I can easily dedicate one theme to each button (three themes per unit) and it also has the OFF feature by clicking in the middle of the unit. It is very easy and handy to have this switch, instead of having to open the app on my phone each time I e.g. enters the kitchen to put the lights on and then off again when leaving. I used the included double sided tape to fasten the unit to the wall. It really stays sturdy on the wall and it has been sitting there for about two months now. I though miss the ability to use more themes from time to time without having to use the app on my phone. I therefore think this unit has room for improvements. Instead of only having one theme per button, it would be nice to allow for more themes. This could be manageable by letting the user e.g. double click on a button to get another theme. Right there, we would have twice as many themes per unit. A combination by clicking more than one button at a time could also work. I wish Philips can read my comment here and hopefully make it work in the future :-) As advertised, I would give this unit five stars, but I deduct one for less options than wanted.

    Mostly like it but it's a little clunky

    |
    Posted .

    I'm glad I picked this up because it is useful. The clicking of the buttons is a little clunky though. I mounted mine to the wall and if I don't press the 2,3, of 4 preset button perfectly, it registers as a click of the big 1 button. I seem to be getting the touch down because it's happening less frequently the longer I've had it. But I felt it was worth mentioning

    Perfect for Quick Light Switching

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Battery, Lighting, Philips hue

    I use this in my home office / den to control the lighting scenes. The space is a 'flex' space that acts as a home office during working hours, and as a relaxation/video games/tv space in the evenings and weekends. The Hue system is perfect for me as it lets me cater my lighting to my use. The Tap lets me quickly change without unlocking my mobile phone. It's awesome it uses no batteries, which means I never have to worry about it dying on me. It does have one quirk, the 2-3-4 buttons must be pressed in a certain way. What I've learned is that the trick is to press the button closest to the center of the tap. For example, Button 2 is on the left side; putting my finger on the far right edge of Button 2 and pressing it reliably triggers the proper scene. Button 3 pressed from top of button 3, and Button 4 to the furthest left of the button. It's much smaller than you might think looking at pictures of it on the web, it is in fact a good size. Not too big to be obtrusive, not too small as to be hard to use. Other than that one quirk of learning how to press the buttons, it works perfectly.

    Nice portable unit. Easy to set up, easy to program. It's nice to have a few choices if someone is using the tablet for something else.

    Way faster than using the app

    Lighting

    Valuable little tool for making life easy. I have three installed in my main rooms to control 25 bulbs and strips and have set them all set up to do 3 different lighting schemes while the main button turns them all off. The app is fun and I have created dozens of "specialty" light schemes, but I would not use the lights nearly as much without the quick access the Tap buttons allow.

    This device is great for programming your Hue Lights. It is very portable, can mount on the wall with removable tape, and doesn't need any batteries.

    Nice that it's removable, but it does the job for me on the wall. I use it with two lamps and the ambient lighting behind my TV. Makes control super convenient.

    No power required, just stick on the wall and push to switch up zones. I don't have many of these, but I have these in areas like the living room where different desired colors and brightness settings vary throughout the day.

    Highly programmable

    |
    Posted .

    I currently have five of these in my home. One is on the night stand, and I currently have it for evening, sleep, morning and daytime routines. The others have a variety of functions assigned to each button, and I change them somewhat regularly to fine tune how each reacts. In the Hue app there are many routines that can be found in the "Hue Labs" section. Those routines add different kinds of functionality to the Tap Switch beyond the standard on/off. A point of clarification about how these are powered: each tap of the switch recharges the on-board battery. The battery isn't (as far as I know) replaceable, and the unit does not have to be charged via a separate power source.

    Bought this to compliment our Hue Lights and Bridge. Unfortunately had to return since it wasn't the best solution for our home automation system. If just using Hue Lights and Bridge this is a great item that allows you quick access without having your phone in hand.

    Most useful when synced with HomeKit

    |
    Posted .

    The power of the Tap switch is amplified when synced with HomeKit because the switch can control any scene or device on your Home platform. For example, my Goodnight scene turns off every light and fan downstairs. I assigned this scene to the “one dot” switch. A single press turns off Hue lights, lights and fans controlled by Lutron switches, and lowers Serena shades. Amazing! And you still have 3 more switches to program! See “How to configure Hue dimmer switches for HomeKit” at LinkdHOME.com for more info. I would have rated the product 5 stars if the installation guide had given me the info I just gave you.
