Philips Hue smart lights are pretty fantastic because you can control them with your phone through the Philips Hue app, HomeKit or a virtual voice assistant (Alexa, Siri or Google). However, for those times when you need a physical button, you can go with the official Philips Hue Smart Dimmer switch for convenient controls. It works just like a normal light switch, except that it is equipped with intelligent technology that, as it is written in the name, allows for wireless darkness. Here are some accessories that can improve how you use and store Dimmer.
Hue Smart Plug works with all kinds of devices, not just lighting. When combined with the Switch Dimmer Switch, you can add smart control to fans, air purifiers, chargers and more. As the jack is accepted and turned on and off, you can program the dimmer buttons on the dimmer to control other accessories in your room.
