Philips Hue Tap Dial Switch provides greater control with four buttons, multi-room control and dial-based dimming

Sharing is caring!

Today, Philips Hue has announced several new products, including the new Perifo track lighting and a Hue Go portable table lamp that can be used outdoors.

However, what caught my eye was the Philips Hue Tap dial switch which provides superior lighting control over the existing basic Hue switches.

Philips Hue Tap dial switch

The Tap dial switch has four buttons with a dial running around the edge.

Each button on the Tap dial can be set to control smart lights in up to three separate rooms or zones around the home. Tap a button to choose or adjust any light scene instantly.

The Tap dial also comes with intuitive dimming control — the faster or slower you turn the dial, the faster or slower your smart lights dim or brighten.

The switch comes in either black or white and is magnetically attached to a mounting plate similar to the existing dimmer switch. Therefore, you can remove it as needed and use it as a remote control, or you can directly mount it to metal surfaces.

Pricing and Availability:

The Philips Hue Tap dial switch will be available in black or white and should be available from today (21st of June) for£44.99

Philips Hue Perifo track lighting

Perifo is a new line from Philips Hue that is made up of individual rails that fit together to make a fully customisable track.  You choose the layout and length of the track and what lights to include to get full control over the way you light your home. The track can be attached to the wall or ceiling and connected to a standard outlet or existing wires using the included power supply unit. Then the real fun begins as you click your choice of smart lights into the track and position them exactly how you want. You can combine your choice of color-capable spotlights, pendants, light bars, and light tubes in a single Perifo track to set the mood for any occasion while creating a unique design feature.

Staying with flexibility and design, now you can take smart light with you from the living room to the patio table, or anywhere inside and outside your home with the new Philips Hue Go portable table lamp. The portable table lamp is designed for indoor and outdoor use and features a silicone grip, making it easy to carry wherever you need light. The Hue Go portable table lamp offers up to 48 hours of battery life and is easily recharged using the included charging base. Whether you’re reading in bed or having dinner on the patio, the lamp’s button lets you cycle through preset light scenes to create just the right mood.
