Philips Hue will make any switch smart
If you have smart bulbs at home, regardless of manufacturer and use the connectivity technology they use (Bluetooth, ZigBee, etc.), you will know that there is nothing more annoying than trying to control them remotely through their application or commands voice and what appear as offline.
This usually happens when, for example, we have network problems or interference. Although the most common reason is that one of the people who live with you or directly you press the switch on the wall. And it is logical, because until you are aware it is easy to fall into an action that we have automated after so many years repeating it every day.
Well, Philips now announces a new accessory of the product range Philips Hue to turn any switch into a smart one. And this is what allows us to solve this problem that we are sure that, like us, you have suffered on more than one occasion if you have smart bulbs installed at home.
Coming soon: the wall switch module! Make any light switch smart by installing this little gadget behind the wall plate. Your smart lights stay reachable – and you can use the light switch to set your favorite light scenes.

Of course, the best thing about this new proposal is that you will not have to do strange things with the switch that you already have installed and it will remain fully operational when turning the lights on or off. The only difference is that it will work in the same way as if it were the Philips Hue Smart Button or the wireless control that the brand offers, which means that it will never cut the electricity and the bulb will be receiving current continuously.
In addition, these new smart switches that you can have at home can be configured from the Philips app to turn on, turn off or directly activate a specific scene that you may have defined. Which means you could control multiple lights at the same time.
A very simple installation process
The only negative point that could be put to this new Philips Hue accessory is that it requires minimal installation. Anyway, if you handle yourself a little in electricity matters, it will not cost you work and with the appropriate security measures it will be a matter of minutes to have everything operational.
So the only thing you have left is to wait for them to be put on sale if you want to change all the switches at home little by little or suddenly. Why in Europe they will be launched during the spring of this same year and in the United States it will do so at the end of the year.
Regarding the price, the individual pack will cost 39.95 euros while the one made up of two units will cost 69.95 euros. A saving of 10 euros that if you are going to buy it will be interesting to take advantage of.
