There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only complaint I have is that there isn't a clean solution for covering or replacing the standard switch wall plate that is made obsolete by the Hue dimmer functionality. I didn't want to remove the standard switch because I didn't want to leave a wiring project for the future if we retire the Hue system (nothing lasts forever, after all). But there is no off-the-shelf, unified solution for keeping the switch in place and attractively adding the Hue dimmer next to it.
Our imperfect solution was to use a two-gang decora plate: the left side of the wall plate is connected in the normal way to the paddle switch that controls the ceiling fixture. A small piece of clear plastic tape holds that switch in the ON position. Then on the right side, we put a blank filler plate, removed the magnets from the Phillips mounting plate and glued them to the back of the blank plate. This allows the remote to stick to the right side of the wallplate adjacent to the always-on paddle switch. A guest entering the room finds the switch where they expect it to be. As long as they don't try fiddling with the paddle switch.
Without a small lip or edge below the removable remote, however, the remote tends to magnetize against the blank plate slightly askew. I now need to craft a small lip or ledge to prop the remote perfectly upright. I should note the magnets do hold the dimmer snugly in place.
Serves the job. They're brighter than any of the other A19/E26 bulbs that Hue sells. But they can't be color or temperature adjusted. Personally, I want more than a dim light when getting ready for bed. I want warm light. I want to cut out the blue light. And as a result I would strongly recommend users upgrade to the next light kit Hue sells. It's only $10-15 more, and it will give you warm to cool light on top of being dimmable. I only use this bulb over my shower because I like it's brightness and I don't tend to want to fall asleep in there.
These switches are great. They can control up to 10 bulbs at once with no bridge. No additional purchases required.
They also contain a chunk of ferrous metal in the middle, it gives them a satisfying heft, and also enables them to stick to magnets. This means they easily click into their provided wall switch. It also means, that you can put magnets inside furniture and they will stick to that, too. Check out these pictures of my bedside table. I absolutely love that this is possible.
As noted above, these bulbs aren't really that adjustable compared to other Hue bulbs. However, for those of you looking to buy this kit to add a dimmer switch to the rest of your Hue bulbs, THESE SWITCHES ROCK. They immediately upgraded my experience.
All my other bulbs are able to produce gentle light at varying levels of brightness. But accessing them through a phone means 1) looking at a phone screen when you're trying to get ready for bed, and 2) making at least 8 taps and swipes to get to the scene I want to launch. With these switches, I can launch at least 15 different functions and scenes with just a press of a button. And that is awesome. It's convenient. It's pleasant. And it's awesome. (For example, if I hold down the dim button, it does a different function than when I press it. And when I press it, it does a different function that when I press it when all the lights are off. - Because why would I be dimming darkness? I wouldn't. So I converted the Dim Down button into another On button in that particular scenario.)
Now, getting this many functions out of a dimmer switch requires a different app than the free Hue app. But it's officially sanctioned by Philips, and is easy to accomplish.
You can completely control your room without getting out of bed.
The Wall Plates:
These wall plates are also awesome. They feature a built in 3M adhesive you can use to stick them to the wall, and the wall plate comes apart to reveal a hidden compartment where screws can be used to fasten the plate to the wall. Contrary to others reports, you CAN use these to replace your switche plates! I have done so. (See my fourth picture.) The wide screw holes allow it to screw into the drywall on either side of your light socket.
Take note, the Hue ecosystem is designed to run with the power always connected. (Think the wall switch always being on), and then relying on your phone, or dimmer switches to electronically switch the light on or off. So, when I installed this switch in my bathroom, I removed the old switch, connected the wires inside so it would always be on, then position the Philips wall plate over the old hole, and screwed it into place. It has not budged.
I have not used the provided adhesive, as I wanted a more removable and reusable option. For my bedroom, I left my old wall switches as they were, (just turned to the on position), and used 3M Command Strip Velcro adhesive strips to attach the plates above and to the side of the switches. (See my second picture). 3M velcro adhesive is also sold on amazon, can be removed with no marks to the walls, and allows me to temporarily take the plate down if ever I want to.
Criticism & Buyer Beware:
These bulbs can't be temperature adjusted. For me, this is a huge issue. I only own one of these bulbs and I use it over my shower for this very reason. I only ever really want to shower with full light. In my rooms, my bathroom, my closet -anywhere else- I want more range of light from my bulbs. When it's bed time, I don't just want dim light, I want gentle light.
The upside, is that no amount of philips hue upgrades will lead to more productivity for this bulb; buy this kit and you'll buy everything you're ever going to have. (No bridge or app required.) The downside, is that these bulbs don't have any upside, and, personally, when i want to get ready for bed, I find converting to warm light, as well as dimmed is a necessity.
I really wish these remotes weren't symmetrical. They do have a little bump on the back of the remote to help it click into the wall plate, but this isn't something I immediately think about. Aside from that, when I grab the switch in the middle of the night, there's nothing else to tell me which way I'm holding the switch, and I've hit the on-button many times when I meant to hit the off button.
This isn't really applicable to this particular set, as this bulb can only be turned on, off, and dimmed, but for those looking to invest in the philips ecosystem, the app is.. okay.
This is easily fixed with officially sanctioned after market "Friends of Hue Apps" made by other providers, but these do cost money, not much, but something to be aware of. I strongly recommend making the purchase, however, as using an aftermarket app, my dimmer switch has 15 different functions from only 4 buttons. I can turn off the lights in my room and the entire house. (I think, theoretically, 24 different scenes would be possible.)
This product is solid. I highly recommend the Philips Hue eosystem. The app may be clunky, but with excellent workarounds like the dimmer switch available, it dramatically upgrades a room with only one purchase.
This has two parts - a remote (which controls the lights) and a base. The remote can attach to the base by included magnets, or the remote can operate as a handheld remote. The base can be attached to your wall via sticky tape (also included). This makes it easy to attach the base to a wall and add a new "switch" anywhere you want - no wiring or cutting required. Just peel and stick.
The remote has lets you cycle through four light settings and also adjust the brightness of the lights. Tapping the on button cycles through the four light settings. The first tap of the on button can either turn on the last-used setting or turn on a default setting of your choice.
Highly recommended if you want to add another way to control your lights or if you are looking to make it easier for guests to control your Hue lights.

Se los recomiendo ampliamente.
OPCION 1:un foco o varios focos hue que sincronices al control actuaran como un grupo y pueden ser manejados desde el control fisico,prendiendo,apagando o atenuando todo a la vez,pero no podras seleccionar un solo foco del grupo ni podras manejarlo desde un smartphone o tablet solamente sirve con el control fisico;
OPCION 2: es sincronizarlo al hue bridge y manejarlo tambien desde tu dispositivo aparte del control fisico
cada opcion tiene sus ventajas,un poco lioso pero es posible
- Completamente inalámbrico.
- Se puede desprender de la base como si fuera un control de tv/aire/etc.
- Capacidad de programar hasta 4 ambientaciones.
- Capacidad de subir o bajar intensidad de la iluminación.
- Material resistente y además buena apariencia.
- Fácil de configurar.
- Controla todas las luces de la estancia, no hay forma de elegir qué luz quieres controlar. Es decir, si tienes tu luz del buró y de techo en la estancia “Habitación”, este controlará las dos al mismo tiempo.
Su instalación física es increíblemente sencilla, y su configuración es rápida a través de la app de Philips Hue.
Lo recomiendo muchísimo si ya tienes luces inteligentes de Philips.
