In the past few days I have sorted out some old lamps and sold them on eBay. Several buyers had no idea how to reset the lamps so that the new Bridge would find them immediately – although it is so easy with the dimmer switch. This is how easy it is to reset a Hue lamp I have often explained how to reset a lamp with the dimmer switch.
When the new Philips Hue dimmer switch was introduced, you probably thought: What should I do with it? After all, the chances are very high that you have at least one dimmer switch in your home. Now the second generation is available – and a closer look at it is worthwhile for several reasons.
I had to dig deep in the archives, but it’s actually been more than five years since Philips Hue launched the dimmer switch. The successor, which I have already presented to you in detail in the past few weeks, is due to be launched this month. In any case, it is pleasing that the price has not increased.
Our survey on Hueblog.de has shown once again: The Philips Hue dimmer switch remains your favorite. No wonder, after all it has been available for several years with a price of less than 25 bucks it is quite cheap and can also be used in many ways. At least it comes with a holder from which you can easily remove the dimmer switch.
In the past few weeks I have been asked one question in particular. Therefore, I would like to use a rather quiet Saturday to explain this question: why is a new Philips Hue lamp not found in the app but the included dimmer switch works fine? Even the search by serial number does not bring success, the new lamp cannot be paired with the Hue Bridge.
The Philips Hue Smart Button has found many fans in recent weeks, even though it is very resource-intensive and expensive. Today, I would like to point out a function that the Hue Smart Button does not yet implement in a good way. It’s all about the dimming function which is actually quite well integrated.
The Philips Hue dimmer switch is a real all-rounder and I’ve been thinking about launching an initiative to get the little remote control into every room. The dimmer switch always cuts a fine figure, whether on the living room table, the fridge, embedded in the bedside table or even as a replacement for the light switch on the wall.
It looks a bit inconspicious, the dimming switch for Philips Hue. A small white plastic piece with four buttons and an even bigger plastic holder. Not really of great design and high quality, but it somehow fits in everywhere. At the moment, I have five switches in use and take this as an opportunity to explain to you what you can do with the Philips Hue Wireless Dimming Switch.
