    Great Addition to Hue System

    Pros: -Easy sync with Hue hub -Great customization of dimmer switch buttons -Easy way to make the Hue system friendly for guests and non-smartphone users Cons: -Sometimes disconnects from Hue bridge momentarily -Button customizations are a bit buried in the new Hue android app I purchased this product about 4 months ago to add to my existing hue lighting system which consists of a second gen Hue hub, 3 color bulbs, Iris, and Bloom. It was surprisingly easy to sync with the Hue app and hub. I mounted it right next to another set of switches in the living room and it looks like it's been there all along. It's also a nice touch that the switch itself is portable when needed. It's connected to the wall using an outlet surround/cover which connects to the remote by magnets. I have not really carried it around like a remote, but it's nice to have the option. Users can program the on switch with up to 5 preset light scenes. Just keep tapping to change all lights to the next setting. The dimmer buttons up and down are very accurate and it seems like they're only limited by the lights connect. It dims in small increments all the way down to a very faint glow. The switch has been very responsive overall. Button presses change the current light settings almost immediately. The only real complaint I have (and it's small) is that there have been a couple of occasions where the dimmer switch has disconnected itself from the Hub. My living room is 15ft by 25ft, but I also have 5 lights, the dimmer switch, and my wireless router in this same area. Based on what I understand about how the "web of connectivity" links all hue devices together this connection issue shouldn't happen. Most times I can hit on/off and the switch reconnects, but once I had to fully reset the switch to get it working again. This issue is why I've rated it just shy of 5 stars and I'd rate it 4.5 if I could! Over all this was a great purchase and blows away the other hue tap round remote that I tried first. It's just as versatile and much more use-friendly. This product is for you if you have others in your household or guests who aren't so familiar with smart home tech and smartphones. It takes your smart lighting system and reduces it back to a simple light switch that people of all ages and tech levels can understand. It does all of this while adding even more customization and maintaining all the reasons you spent so much on a Hue smart lighting system to begin with.

    Wireless remote

    I came in to Best Buy to buy some wireless wall remotes for my Philips Hue lighting. Like always I found Gina D. at the mobile phone desk and told her what I was looking for. She immediately took me over to that department and pointed out what I needed and then she called Vanessa N. to help me out with any questions because she's in charge of that department, they are both very well organized and know their products. After explaining to Vanessa what I was looking for she pulled out a wireless switch that could be mounted on the wall that will control my lights but also is capable of coming off the wall due to magnetic contacts and being used as a handheld remote. This not only turns the lights on and off but will also allow you to dim them up and down so I purchased three. Once I got home it was extremely easy, I mounted them where I wanted them because they could be put anywhere and on any wall. I matched it to the lights for that room using the Philips Hub and within a couple of seconds I was able to turn the lights on and off and dim them up and down. There are no tools required it's simply sticks on the wall with a little 3M Tab and it gives you the ability to take the remote with you so during movie night you do not have to get up to change the lights. With great assistance and a fantastic product that made the installation so easy and enjoyable that I had control over the lights in no time at all. Thanks to the Philips design and the easy connect to the Philips Hub, I might purchase one or two more to use on my light strips instead of going to my phone's app.

    Great accessory for the Hue system

    I've been meaning to get a wall switch for my hue lights for a while now. I kinda figured that the Tap switch was going to be my only option until this came along with a much more attractive price point and more conventional look. And it works great. That said there are a couple downsides to choosing this over the Tap: -Battery. As in this needs one. It's a minor thing since the battery included will no doubt last forever, but it should be mentioned that this is not a kinetic energy powered device like the Tap. Of course for some people this is probably a plus, since the Tap does require you to hammer it a little to work. -Less Programmable. The Tap is interesting because it lets you pretty much program the multiple buttons to do whatever you want. This one, though, only allows 1 scene to be stored at a time. I'll admit I'm a little disappointed that there isn't a cycle option or the like, but I suppose that's what the phone is for. That said, it's also got some serious advantages over the Tap: -Integrated Dimmer. Why the Tap doesn't have this is beyond me. The ability to adjust the brightness on your scenes is a great feature of this thing. -More portable. The actual switch unit is held in place with magnets, making it easy to pop it off and carry around with you. I have mine mounted right by my door so when I get in I can turn the lights on, pop it in my pocket, and head into the living room where I can then adjust the brightness to whatever I'm going to be doing next, be that cleaning, hosting people, or just dimming them down to watch some TV. Then I take it into my bedroom, turn off all the lights, and leave it on my night stand. Next morning I pop it back into its place by the door when I leave. Hard to do with the larger "hockey puck" design of the Tap. -Conventional Design. This thing blends in much better with the existing lightswitches than the Tap ever could. So yeah. Both the Tap and this Dimmer are fine accessories to the Hue lighting system. On balance I think I do like this one more for the reasons listed above, most notably the portability. That said I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed that a 2nd generation or software patch will be coming eventually to allow us more options to customize how it works.

    Turns out voice isn't always the best way

    When we first started collecting Hue bulbs I assumed we would always use voice commands. My wife continuously complained about my Hue bulbs because she lost the ability to flip the switch. She's right, it's actually easier sometimes to just hit a button. I've got 2 of these Hue switches now and they have worked perfectly each and every time. Alexa can be hit and miss with voice commands but these switches are solid. They're also great for the rare times that your internet goes down (Which doesn't seem to be so rare around here). The switches use the bridge and your router to work. So even without an active internet connection you can still turn off and on your lights. Mounting to the wall was super simple. Each "base" includes sticky tape on the back and will mount straight to your wall with no additional tools or holes. I had this switch on my bedroom wall in under a minute. They are also magnetic! I have one in my kitchen that I put on the fridge. The magnet is very strong and it hasn't had any problem falling off, even with kids opening and slamming the fridge doors dozens of times a day. The switch itself includes 4 buttons. On, Off, a button for brighter, a button for Dimmer. You can set the on button to trigger different scenes for added functionality. Hit the On button once and scene bright is triggered. Hit it a second time and scene relax is triggered ect. There really isn't much to complain about with these switches. It's one of the rare Hue accessories that I think is actually fairly priced. I'll be adding a switch in every room in my house going forward.

    Adds Functionality But A Little Pricey

    Quick Summary A remote control switch to control Hue lights without a smart phone. It adds a great deal of functionality to the Hue system, but it is a little pricey. Background I really like the ability to control the lights with my phone, changing colors and brightness levels. However, I found that sometimes when going into a room quickly, you just want to turn the light on, do what you need to do, and then leave again turning the light off. This is not practical with a smart phone as I don't carry mine with me all over the house. Sure you could use the existing light switches but then if you turn the light off that way, you can't use the phone to turn it on because the power is physically cut off. Enter the Hue Dimmer Switch. Features Allows you to turn any number of Hue lights on, off, and adjust the brightness. This switch is registered to the Hue infrastructure (aka your Hue bridge) and once paired, you can use the app to set any number of lights to be controlled with the switch. You can also assign a specific scene to the switch. For example I have two scenes programmed into my Hue app on my phone. I have a "normal" scene to give me normal white light that any bulb would give and an "ambiance" scene which has exotic colors for movies and listening to music. I have the "normal" scene set to this switch, so when I go into the room to do something quick, I can turn it on and then turn it off when I leave. But if I'm going to watch a movie for a couple hours I'll grab my phone, switch on the "ambiance" scene, and adjust it to whatever color matches the movie or song style. One thing to note too is that this switch is removable. It comes with a plate that is affixed to a wall either with screws or 3M type tape and then the switch (which is really a wireless remote) is attached to that plate with a magnet and can be removed. The permanent wall mount does not have to be used at all if you'd like to just use the remote switch.

    Great, but not perfect

    These dimmer switches are a MUST if you have the Hue lights. Without the dimmer switches, you need to turn your lights off via your phone or tablet every time you would like to turn the lights off, which isn't always convenient. Of course, you could simply flip the switch, but this renders the lights useless later, as they will no longer have power and they will not be connected to the Hue bridge. I removed the light switches from my walls, tucked them in the metal container in the wall, and covered them with a flat, plain electric outlet cover (without any holes or port openings). This allowed me to stick the dimmer switches over the existing light switches without worrying that the light switches would ever accidentally be turned off, preventing the lights from connecting to the Hue bridge. The dimmers look MUCH better than modern light switches and they are magnetic, so you can remove them from their plate and use them as a remote, if you'd like. Unfortunately, they aren't perfect. If you're like me and you have a TON of wireless devices on your network, you will experience some interference at seldom times. If you ever press the dimmer switch and nothing happens, simply hit it 1-2 more times and it will most likely make it around the interference. You could also make sure that your wireless router fully reaches throughout the entirety of your home. If it doesn't, simply by an extender or another router to use as an extender. This will help to clear up any of the "dark" areas where the signal is weaker/non-existent.

    More than just a light switch

    I currently have a beginner smart home set up, and I originally bought this product just so that I had a way to turn on and off my hue lights without flipping the home's light switch or talking to the Google Home. I was only expecting commands for on, off, dim, and brighten, but what I got was much more. When you initially set up the Hue Switch it is defaulted to on and off. You cannot switch the commands for dimming and brightening the lights, but what you can do is control how the on button works. You can set 5 different responses from the on button press. Whether you have just 1 light in the room, or many lights in the room this comes in handy. Let me explain how it works. Within the Phillips Hue app, you can set up 5 different things for the on button to do. When I hit the on button once it turns the light on to the last setting it had when I turned it off. When I press it a second time I have it turn to a bright white light. When I press it a third time the room goes into a cool blue theme that I use for bed time. (not too bright, but still able to navigate when getting ready for bed) When I press the on button a fourth time, it goes into a relaxing theme that is less harsh on your eyes and good for reading. And finally, with the fifth press of the button, it turns the light into a night light. You can set these 5 settings to whatever color or scheme that you want. It is pretty cool. About as useful as the Phillips Hue Tap switch, only this one can only control one room. For single room use, I would prefer this over the Phillips Hue Tap. For multi-room use, I would probably go with the Hue Tap switches around the house.

    It just works

    My fascination with the Philips Hue ecosystem is that they just work. Plug them in, configure them correctly, and you can forget about them - because they will just continue to work day in and day out, without fail and without needing any intervention like reboots and stuff. I wish all of technology can be as consistent as the Philips Hue ecosystem and operate in a very stable manner. This wireless switch is just another testament of that consistency. It is also very convenient as you can stick this anywhere and voila! It will look like it was a standard wall switch. And the main remote is magnetic so you can carry it around, or just leave it in place. For my bedroom switch, I even chose not to stick this anywhere and just leave it on top of the bedside table, and it controls all the lighting in the room. Overall, the make seems sturdy. I have yet to find out how long the batteries last though, been using mine for almost a year now. Set-up is not complicated if you already have prior experience with setting the rest of your Philips Hue devices. It works on the same principle of adding a device, selecting the category, and assigning the lights that you want controlled by this, including pre-programming lighting settings. Overall, I'm happy with the creativeness put into thinking up this product.

    Must Have for Your Hue System

    We purchased the Philips Hue Dimmer Switch with our Hue Starter Kit so that we could control our new lights like a traditional lighting system. We didn't feel comfortable with only having the Hue App to control the lights. And Philips recommends leaving your Hue lights powered at all times. This switch is easy to add to your Hue system and setup. You have the option to assign lights to the switch and whether to just turn them on and off or you can assign a particular scene. I decided to assign the default scene to the switch so no matter what state or scene the lights were last used with, this switch will turn them on to the default scene. We mounted it on the wall next to the other set of light switches in our home. We also added a Light Switch Cover to cover the actual light switch that powers the Hue lights. This way the switch is always on and can't be turned off by accident. You can find the switch covers online. The Hue Light switch is also removable from the wall mount so you can use it like a remote control. So far we are pleased with our Hue Lighting system and the Dimmable Light Switch. For more info, see my review of the Philips Hue Starter Kit. I highly recommend this switch for those who want to add a traditional style wall switch to their Philips Hue system.

    Great Non Wire Option

    This is a great addition to the Phillips Hue lighting options. Very useful as this does not require any electrical wiring to work Hue bulbs. The base plate has two small magnets located on back or use stick up strips to mount anywhere. The switch component then may be removed if you would like to use as hand held remote next to you or just keep it in the face plate. The switch has On, Off, Dimmer Up and Dimmer Down. Works great as an additional remote for the Philips Hue A19 LED DIMMER KIT, which by the way does not require the HUE Bridge to work. Note, the bridge does provide a much more enhanced usage for Alexa, Google Assistant, etc., but not necessary especially for individuals who are not going for high tech home automation solutions. We use the Philips Hue A19 LED Dimmer Kit in one room and use the existing light dimmer switch in that kit to control the light in that room, while in the room. We purchased the additional dimmer remote switch to place at the front of the home. It enables us to turn on the light in the back room before walking down a long hallway and avoid walking into the dark room at the back of the home. We had to pair with the bulb and existing remote in the room at the back of the home, but once that was done – it works great.

    Once I got my place covered in Hue lights, it was almost a life altering moment where we all had to re-program ourselves from using switches to our voices. We also live in apt, so changing any switches or anything like that was out of the question. So I never really put much effort into researching the light switches until I watched a video with this switch in it, and knew I had to get it. I may sound silly and "behind times" compared to most people, but giving myself the option to use a light switch again was amazing. And the fact it doubles as a remote, and comes with double sided tape so you're not drilling into the walls is what really sold me, again, because I live in an apt. This accessory is ridiculously easy to set it up, and comes with some nice built in features like dimming, and repeatedly hitting the "On" button switches between presets that you can either set yourself, or use the defaults. Got it on sale for $20, which to me is well worth it because anyone who's ever installed high quality dimmer switches know they run between $20-$30 depending on the brand, sometimes more. So to pay $20 for a switch that does ALL that, is portable, and I can change what room its assigned to any time...well worth it.

    Philips - hue Wireless Dimmer Switch

    Philips hue Dimmer Switch: Easily adjust your smart lighting with this convenient dimmer switch. It's compatible with your Philips hue devices and features a wall-mountable design. The switch also functions as a remote, so you can control your lighting from a distance. I removed all the light switches from my walls, wired them to stay hot constantly and then tucked them in the metal switch box in the wall, and covered them with a flat, plain electrical outlet cover (without any holes or port openings). This allowed me to stick the dimmer switches over the existing light switches without worrying that the light switches would ever accidentally be turned off, preventing the lights from connecting to the Hue bridge. The dimmers look MUCH better than modern light switches and they are magnetic, so you can remove them from their plate and use them as a remote, if you'd like. Unfortunately, they aren't perfect. If you're like me and you have a over 70 wireless devices on your network, you will experience some interference at seldom times. If you ever press the dimmer switch and nothing happens, simply hit it 1-2 more times and it will most likely make it around the interference. You could also make sure that your wireless router fully reaches throughout the entirety of your home. If it doesn't, simply by an extender or another router to use as an extender. This will help to clear up any of the "dark" areas where the signal is weaker/non-existent. All in all the Switch works nice, however the Home app definitely need work , Apple needs to go back and do an update on the Home because sometimes its hit or miss. I would give five stars if it worked flawlessly all the time.

    Simple control for rooms with Philips Hue

    Yes, there are cheaper DIY Automation lights on the market. But how long will that company be here. If you've been following DIY Automation for the last few years you've seen a few companies come and go. Philips has been around awhile and they know lighting. The HUE line has been a lot of fun. With different scenes, being able to control just one light bulb on a switch that has multiple bulbs is great. Use a couple motion sensor coupled with different bulbs for nightlights. This way they're only on when they need to be at a brightness that I want. This style was purchased for use in a bathroom that I converted one of the 4 can lights on a single switch to use as a ceiling fan and would need to be on all the time. Solution: 1. Already had the hub 2. Three Hue retro fits 3. A Hue remote switch Install, program and several dollars cheaper than an electrician to run new wiring for the fan. 4. Create routines with Alexa 5. Happy wife Also have some colored bulbs, highly recommend getting some

    A Necessary Part for the Ligthing Ecosystem

    After jumping onto the smart-light bandwagon, I realized quickly that old-school methods still need to be part of the overall smart ecosystem. Since speaking to the house to turn on lights is not always an option, such as when people are asleep, a manual switch for controlling lights is required. Thus, when calculating costs for setting up a smart-light home, factor in the cost of a switch for each room. (Also factor in the cost of some duct tape to cover the existing switch so the lights stay powered, or the whole system stops functioning) Overall, the switch is good. There are times when it does not seem to react to pressing the button, but that could be due to a sloppy button press when in a hurry. Other times, the system loses connection to the switch, but this can be fixed by waiting for the update to finish or using the re-set button through the pin hole in the back. Having the ability to control multiple lights on one switch is nice, especially since multiple presses can be used to cycle through different scenes. While the switch can be taken off the wall and used remotely, I have not tried this since I don't want to lose the remote.

    I use this switch for my kids' bedroom, using the Philips Hue Bridge (whatever generation is current at the time of this review). It pairs / works seamlessly with the Philips Hue Bridge. It allows for the setup of 4-5 different 'Scenes'. You do not need to set a Scene for all 4 or 5 switch presses. I use a lights all on, a dimmed relax, and a nightlight. The other 1-2 switch clicks that I don't use cannot be deactivated, but if they are not programmed with a Scene, you just press the ON button to 'skip' over them. For the 4-5 Scenes, you press the ON button to get to the desired Scene; each press of the ON button simply cycles through all Scenes. The Dimmer button always functions. This switch comes with double-sided tape, so it can be attached to the wall. It holds very strong, but should come off of the wall should you need to take it off. I like that there is no permanent installation needed. The other awesome feature is that the switch portion is held on the switch by magnets, so the actual switch can be taken off and used as a remote. VERY convenient.

    Much more configurable than it appears before purchase. Repeated presses of the ON button allow you to rotate between 5 different scenes (color schemes) for 1 or 2 rooms at a time. Each scene is then dimmable. As long as you understand the rotation you've set, it work really well. It may be confusing at first if you use default settings because the first press give you "last on state". If you already have the lights on and it has been more than 10 seconds, then the rotation resets and your first press becomes "last on state" again, but that is the same as "current state" so you see no change and think it's not working, but it's responding perfectly. The ability to remove the button pad from the wall plate (magnetically) and bring it with you is great. Best example of this might be entering the bedroom and turing the lights on. You bring the remote with you and as you prepare for bed, you want to do some reading. You now change the color temperature to your reading preference and dim the light(s). When ready to tuck-in, you hit OFF, leave the remote on the nightstand until morning, and start snoring away. It's there waiting for you to tune the lights on when you wake and return to the wall plate on your way out. Very useful and configurable. Very easy setup via Hue app. Worth every penny and will be buying more as we can afford to Hue-ify our home.

    I've been looking for a light switch to go along with my hue lights in my living room. Since I have kids and a wife who don't want to deal with always using their phone to turn on lights, this solved that problem perfectly. I used to have a switch for these lights, but I just wired it to always be on and then put this switch over it. You can turn it on and off, and dim. The nice thing I didn't know is that when you hit the on button, it turns it to a specific scene of your choosing, and then if you hit it again, it can go to a difference scene. So I have it setup to turn on a low blue lights to watch TV when it is hit twice. You can do this for up to 5 scenes. Really went above and beyond my expectations. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because it doesn't screw in like a normal wall switch would, which made it hard to mount (especially over the hole where the wires were since the size of the device is just that big, you can't use their tape). Otherwise it is perfect. Easy to pair and use. I also love how you can pull off the switch and carry it around like a remote.

    I have a number of these light switches currently. From time to time they flake out and do not control the lights, though you do see a red light on the remote itself. Using four fingers and pressing each button at the same time, you can reboot the light switch and get back to normal. It's nice to be able to configure a different light scenes depending on how many presses of the on button you make. One press is 'energize'. A second press is 'relax'. A third press is 'night light' - for example, depending on which lights you control. It also has a magnetic back, you can attach it to the outside corner of your wall if you have metal corner beads, which is handy for me.

    The dimmer switch remote by Phillips for their hue products is a cheap, but not cheaply made, product that complements your system well. I specifically purchased this so that I had an actual switch for my lights in my room instead of having to always open up my phone and turn it on (this may not matter as both android and iOS now allow voice commands to directly control such lights but this does require more complicated and tedious setting up if you have more than one room with hue lights like I do). The best feature is that the remote is magnetically held in place which does allow you to remove it from its placeholder though I do keep it on its base. The buttons are large and responsive and you can set up to 5 scenes I believe which can be switched to and from each other by pressing "On" multiple times. Also, as the names suggest, you can adjust the brightness as well I believe in 10% increments. The whole setup itself is very minimalist and very white (doesn't stain easily). Great accessory and beautiful as it is functional.

    This dimmer switch is the perfect supplement to the Hue lighting environment. I've kind of come almost full circle on smart lighting. Starting out, I loved programming different phrases to activate certain scenes with my Hue lights through my Google Home. And for some cases, I still do. For everyday use though, I've grown tired of having to use my voice every time I enter or leave a room to turn the lights on and off. The dimmer switch is great for that, and I love that it detaches from the wall mount to turn into a remote, so I don't necessarily have to run to the wall if I want to dim the lights. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone to supplement the Hue environment if you don't want to always have to use your phone or voice control to turn lights on and off in your home.
