Some time ago, I already introduced the Samotech SM216, a light switch adapter for the Philips Hue Smart Button. Unfortunately, the small carrier was only available for a short time in Germany, ordering it via the manufacturer’s UK website involves high shipping costs. Now there is an alternative from Rhodesy.
And it is very interesting at least in terms of price: the light switch adapter for the Hue Smart Button is currently sold for 7.99 euros, Amazon Prime customers get an additional free delivery. Needless to say that I already ordered the part today.
With the small adapter, Rhodesy now also takes care of a detail Philips Hue hadn’t thought of: with the bracket, the Smart Button can be mounted directly over a light switch without having to remove the switch from the wall, which is freed from rockers and frames. This also saves you having to tinker with the cabling and allows you to easily get to the bare switch to use it after all.
If you want to use your Smart Button as a replacement for the light switch, this solution by Rhodesy seems to be very interesting. I can’t provide you with exact details yet but I will do so by the end of the week.
