A Hue Dimmer is a great addition to any Home Philips Hue setup. Similar to the dimmer you will need to buy a Hue Bridge to be able to unlock the full potential of the Philips Hue Dimmer with your home hue setup.
What can the Philips Hue Dimmer Do?
The Philips Hue Dimmer switch isn’t too costly and allows you to control your Philips Hue setup. It also includes a remote so you can control your Hue bulbs from across the room, your bed, or wherever else you might be. The Philips Hue Dimmer allows you to change the intensity of your lights, change the color, and switch the bulbs on and off.
You also have the ability to have four different scenes or light recipes that can be played with the remote by tapping the on button the corresponding number of times. This lets you change up to fifty hue bulbs with the press of a button wirelessly.
The switch also has the ability to help with smart home compatibility. Using the Hue Dimmer Switch and the Apple Smart Home App you can control any device that is compatible with the Apple Homekit.
How Will This Integrate With my Hue Setup?
You have the ability to sync up to 50 lights with the Philips Hue Bridge, and up to ten without. The dimmer switch is meant to act as an easy way to control your entire Philips Hue setup without having to have complicated setup to turn on each bulb — without having to install or buy anything else and work right out of the box.
