Or use with the Hue Bridge – buy separately or as part of a Starter kit – to unlock even more smart lighting features. Control your lighting from anywhere in the world. And set routines to turn your lights on and off automatically, or to come on when you’re away.
The dimmer switch uses batteries, so no mains power needed. It’s quick and easy to install: simply fix it to the wall using screws or the adhesive backing. Or detach it from its magnetic base plate and use as a remote control to manage your lights from up to 12m away.

Flexible lighting at your finger tips
The Wireless Dimmer Switch gives you even more ways to manage your lighting. Choose your favourite lighting shade from the four preset colour scenes, or create your own using the Hue App. Use the Dimmer Switch to control the brightness of your lights, instead of your smart device. Why not add a dimmer switch in each room – so everyone can personalise their room lighting to suit their style.
Match your lighting to your lifestyle
With the Philips Hue lighting system, you can automate when your lights turn on and off, and manage it through the Hue app. Set the lights to come on at sunset or when you return home. Ease into the day by waking up to warm, natural light every morning or schedule the kids’ night lights to turn off automatically at bedtime. And when you’re away, enjoy peace of mind by managing your lighting remotely.
Enjoy more control over your lighting
Manage the lights in every room with the Philips Hue app or use your voice by connecting a hands-free device, like the Amazon Echo. The Dimmer Switch gives you even more flexibility: attach it to the wall or pop it out and use it as a remote control to turn lights on and off, or dim them to create a relaxing background.
“Alexa, turn on the bedroom lights”
Use your voice to control your lighting with an Amazon Echo speaker. The Echo connects to the Alexa voice service so you can use it to carry out countless household tasks and to manage other smart home appliances, like heating, power and security. It comes with Dolby processing to fill the room with immersive, 360º sound – while still being able to detect your voice commands from across the room.
