Philips Hue launches a new Wall Switch module

Philips Hue launches a new Hue Wall Switch module. Long-awaited solution for any Philips Hue smart light bulbs. There is nothing worse than an unresponsive light bulb. Yes, we all been there. You got all these fancy smart lights and you can’t turn them on because you flicked the wall switch and cut the power to the lights. This new module can solve your unresponsive lights problems. For instance, it can be installed behind your existing light switch and turn it into a smart wall switch. In other words, it will ensure your Hue lights will be always reachable and add some new functionality as well.

After you installed the Hue Wall Switch module you don’t have to get up from the couch to turn on the switch you turned off by mistake. It works with the Hue app or voice control. In addition to this, you will be able to personalize the wall switch in the Hue app. You can select lighting scenes you want the switch to perform. The only downside I see to the new Hue wall switch is that it will be battery-powered. However, Philips said the batteries will last for 5 years. Will be nice to see a solution where it can be powered by the existing wiring already in the wall.
