ZigBee lamp is included in the package

A few weeks ago, you could buy the Tint Khaya by Müller-Licht at a special price at Aldi, but now the outdoor floor lamp can also be ordered regularly at Amazon. Reason enough to take another closer look at the model. The dimensions of the outdoor floor lamp, which has an IP44 protection class, are certainly impressive.

Hue and Sonos control supported

I have already reported about the Violet SmartSwitch Lite twice in the past, currently pre-orders for the EU version are already possible – you can find more information at the end of the article. The 86 x 86 millimeter Violet SmartSwitch Lite replaces a single light switch on the wall and requires its own power supply, so a neutral or other power source is needed.

Simply pair with the Hue Bridge

So far, Philips Hue has not come up with a smart plug for outdoor use. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be planned in this direction, although I’m happy to be surprised.

However, you can only get the not really stylish plugs on the second-hand market, where prices of over 50 euros are regularly called up.

Many users have to keep waiting

It could have been so beautiful: The Philips Hue Wall Switch Module is a real problem solver. It turns a classic light switch, the biggest enemy of the Hue light bulbs so far, into a smart light switch, which then no longer controls the power supply but sends commands to the Hue Bridge.

Not cheap, but unique

In the meantime, the project has progressed further and on the website of the British manufacturer, pre-orders for an EU version (round switch boxes) of the Violet SmartSwitch can already be placed. Unfortunately, the whole thing is not quite cheap, but in return you get a rather unique control option.
