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.

Apple users will appreciate that Philips Hue has been working with HomeKit for several years. This makes interaction between the smart lights and other smart home devices that are also compatible with HomeKit a breeze. It is also practical that the Philips Hue switches can also be configured in HomeKit. So you can not only switch your Hue lamps on and off with the touch of a button, but also control joint scenes with products from other manufacturers.

Small preview of new accessories

I have already reported several times about the Sunricher module, which is equipped with a battery and can be used in the Hue app just like a normal Friends of Hue switch. Since no kinetic energy has to be generated, the switch is much quieter when pressed. However, the frame and rocker, which Sunricher supplies as standard, are not really of good quality.
