• Features:


The perfect pair. A clever wireless switch that works directly out of the box and a Philips Hue white lamp. No wires, no electrician, no installation needed. Unlike some of the other Hue switches, this switch is powered by a battery. Switches like the Tap are powered by human touch and do not require batteries.

Color vs Ambiance vs White

The Hue lineup offers three different light bulb options. This kit packages a White bulb. Color bulbs allow you to pick any color you want. Ambiance bulbs allow you to pick from many different shades of white. This allows flexibilty between a warm, inviting environment and an environment geared for focus. White bulbs offer the least in terms of features, but still leave you in control for dimming and turning on/off. Read more about choosing bulbs and color temperature in the Hue Lighting Guide.
