Simple, versatile and unobtrusive, the Philips Hue smart button controls Hue smart lighting with just a press of a finger. A single press accesses the recommended light settings for the time of day, multiple presses cycle through saved scenes. Holding the button down raises and lowers light levels. The soft silicone of the button is tactile and pleasant while its anti-dust and -dirt coating make it easy to keep clean. The very compact button can be placed anywhere. Directly on metallic surfaces, on any other surface with the mini mount accessory or replacing a traditional light switch with the larger backplate. Thanks to the ip44 rating it can also be used in damp area’s like the bathroom. The smart button is always online while maintaining a battery life of 2 years. The button can be integrated in Apple home kit and works with Amazon Alexa and Google assistant.
