Until now, there has been one big enemy of smart lighting: The classic light switch. A problem we all know. Because if the power supply of the Philips Hue lamps is disconnected via the light switch, control via the Hue app is no longer possible, routines do not work and voice assistants also no longer have a chance.

With the latest ceiling light from the Hue portfolio, the Hue Centris, the installation has already been simplified considerably – here, a carabiner is used with which you can clamp the light to the fixture so that you can do the wiring in a relaxed manner and without a helping hand.
