With the Philips Hue Tap Switch you can adjust your Philips Hue lights settings- all without a smartphone or tablet. This is a great way to manage your Hue lights manually, if you don’t always want to have to carry your smart phone around at home. The Tap Switch is exceptionally practical, as it is entirely wireless and battery free, which means you can use it anywhere in your home.

Product Information

  • Replace your regular light switches with a smart switch: There is something so convenient about traditional light switches, but unfortunately they can’t be used with smart lighting. Philips Hue solves this problem with their Tap Switch, which you can mount on the wall for manual access to your hue lights.
  • Portable control wherever you go: You can also use the Tap Switch as a hand held device and carry it with you everywhere you go to turn lights on and off.
  • Batteries need not apply: The Philips Hue Tap Switch doesn’t require any batteries or charging because it works off the kinetic energy generated when you press its buttons. That’s one less thing to worry about!
  • Save your favorite light scenes: You can save your four favorite light recipes to your Tap Switch, so you never have to fumble around with your phone to create the perfect atmosphere.
  • Discover more features with third party apps: Pair your Hue Tap Switch with third party apps to assign multiple actions to a single button, combine more than one action in a single tap, and determine the transition time between light changes.

The Philips Hue Tap Switch in Action

You already own Philips Hue light bulbs but want to access them in a more traditional way without needing a smartphone? No problem, because the Philips Hue Tap Switch does just that.

Attach the Tap Switch to the wall

The smart switch can be attached to a wall with a screw or via its adhesive backing to act as a classic light switch. You can also remove the Tap Switch from its holder and use it as a remote control anywhere in your home. The switch can operate at a range of between 50 and 65 feet and 25 switches can be integrated into a single Hue Bridge. Thanks to its four configurable buttons, you can program the switch to turn your light on and off and access up to four different light scenes, which you can create and assign via the app.

The Hue Tap Switch will make a great addition for anyone who wants to manage their hue lights without needing to unlock their smartphone and find the right app first.

FAQs
Does the Philips Hue Tap Switch have a toggle on/off feature?

No, this is not the default setting. However, you can still program this feature into your Philips Hue Tap Switch by visiting HueLabs and searching for the “Tap toggle” formula. You can then set up the feature on the website. Alternatively, you can unlock this feature via the third party app iConnectHue for iOS.

Can I use a Hue Dimmer Switch and a Philips Hue Tap Switch with the same group of hue lights?

Yes, this is possible.

Can I control lights in multiple rooms with one Philips Hue Tap Switch?

Yes this is possible. The smart switch is fully portable and can be removed from its wall plate and used as a remote control.
