The Hue Smart Button is one of the most exciting new releases in recent years. After the Hue Tap and the Hue dimmer switch, it is only the third switch to be launched directly by Philips Hue.
Philips Hue has taken a step in the right direction with the new GU10 spots which were launched in late summer. The new models are brighter, provide better colour rendition and have also been shrunk to a perfect size so that they fit easily into spot lights from other manufacturers. However, there seems to be another innovation besides Richer Colors & Perfect Fit: An extremely annoying whining.
Does the Hue Smart Button cause problems with the stability of the whole system? Basically, it’s just a simple switch. So I didn’t worry much after the following email from Hueblog reader Thomas: “I have 25 lamps and 13 switches, and the system is getting noticeably unstable. Some lamps are not reachable, react delayed, switches do not work.
