About this product

Overview

Product overview

• A physical switch to control your Philips Hue light bulbs, when used with the Hue Bridge
• Installation is simple and takes a matter of seconds
• Fitted with a micro generator and powered by the touch of your finger meaning no batteries are required
• Four programmable buttons can be set to turn on saved lighting scenes or turn off/on your lights

What does this switch allow me to do?
This Philips Hue tap gives you a physical switch to control single or groups of Philip Hue lights. Once linked to a Philips Hue Bridge, you can use this to operate your lights when your smart devices are out of reach or are charging. Four programmable buttons can be set to switch your lights to your favourite scene or you can use it as an overall master switch for your collection of Hue lights. It works 15m to 30m away from the Hue Bridge, so you can operate your lights from a good distance away.

How is the Hue Tap powered?
Powered entirely by kinetic energy, all you need to do is touch the switch to power it, so no batteries are needed. You don’t have to worry about it running out of power, making it a great addition to your smart Philips Hue lighting system.

Is it easy to install?
Once installed setting up the control requires the Hue Bridge (not included) and downloading the Hue App. All you need to do is sync the Hue tap with your Hue Bridge and app, which takes a matter of seconds. There are no batteries or wires and it can be installed on your wall via screws or with the adhesive tape on the back plate. The app can be used to configure multiple Philip Hue tap switches (with a maximum of 25 switches per Bridge) and is used to program the buttons of each.

Does this unit control all Hue lighting?  It's listed as for 'Hue Lux LED' so I would like to know if it can be used with the standard hue lights.
