Community question of the week: Dual switching with Philips Hue

Two smart switches with one ceiling light

Even though there are apps and voice assistants, in my opinion there is no way around smart switches for Philips Hue. It is simply incredibly practical to be able to control the light directly from the sofa or in passing. There’s one question I keep stumbling over, the most recent of which was posed by Marian in our Community section:

I intend to use a smart ceiling light with the Friends of Hue switches from Senic. Can I use a lamp with two switches in alternating mode? I have already searched the internet, but unfortunately I can’t find an answer.

The answer is very simple: Hue lamps, no matter if one or several, no matter if a whole room or a zone, can in principle be controlled with more than one switch. The only limit is the Bridge, which does not allow an infinite number of switches.

Switches and App are also no problem

The Hue system even works intelligently. You can also switch off the light with a switch if it was previously switched on via another method, for example via an app or a voice assistant. A really smart toggle switch.

If you have any further questions, you can always get in touch in the comments, in the community or by email.
