Hueblog: Dimmer Switch and Smart Button get Natural Light Scene

Dimmer Switch and Smart Button get Natural Light Scene

So far only for the Hue Tap Dial Switch

Late last year, Philips Hue introduced the Natural Light feature. A 24-hour scene that adjusts colour temperature throughout the day, always providing the optimal white light for your well-being: Cool, activating white tones in the morning and relaxing warm white in the evening.

In the last few months, the smart scene has already received several updates, including the ability to switch between time periods faster or slower if desired.

These two switches are next

Activating natural light with a switch only works with the Philips Hue Dial Switch so far. But now I have good news for you: Soon the function will also be available for other switches.

The Philips Hue Smart Button and the Philips Hue Dimmer Switch will be the next to receive the 24-hour scene. With the same update, you will also be able to set ten time windows or ten scenes on the two switches.

$29.99 / £17.99 / €21,99

This little button makes a big impact. A single click controls your lights, while pressing and holding the button dims or brightens them. Better yet: your lights will turn on to our recommended color and brightness based on the time of day.

  1. I got all excited, thinking Philips had released new switches. 😔 As functional as they are….they’re chunky and ugly. I’ve spent the past month researching alternatives but they too are chunky and ugly. I’m even thinking of getting Control4 just so I can have some attractive switches!

    1. We went with Gira E2 friends with Hue. In our house they match the color on the walls at nearly 100%.
      Maybe to chunky for you?

    2. Not so much chunky but I’ve heard energy harvesting switches make a loud click. So more clunky than chunky 😂

    3. Yes, they do. But we have gotten used to it.

      And it’s not that loud, just louder than the average switch.

      Too bad we can’t post pics here…
