When I first set up my Smart Home, I never thought I’d be looking at a physical switch - smart tech is all about voice control and apps - right? Well yes, but then comes the ease of use - while apps and voice work well, this switch just does what it should.
No need to flick through your phone, ask a certain command etc ... just hit on / off or brightness up / down and you’re controlling your Hue lights !
While this may seem old fashioned, the beauty of this switch is being able to control multiple lights on one switch - for example, I have 3 lights in my living space plus two behind my TV - 5 in total. With the switch I can easily program it to control all five at once, no need to walk round and flip separate switches!
Set up a couple of these around your home and you can control each room separately, without having to open the app.
You can also stick the switch to the wall (as in my photo) or remove and use as a remote (which also has a magnet built in)
Great product and well priced!
