Last year, I already drew attention to a problem for which Philips Hue has no solution and will not offer one. Those who want to extend an old Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus no longer have a chance. With the fourth generation of the light strip, Philips Hue has adjusted the size of the six pins.
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.
A few weeks ago I already presented the SM216 from Samotech to you. With the switch adapter, mounting the Hue Smart Button over an existing light switch should not be a problem anymore. Now I can confirm: conversion is really very easy. Unfortunately, the Samotech SM216 is not yet available in stores.
