Philips Hue Announces A New Wall Switch, Dimmer Switch, And Outdoor Light Bar

CES might have come to a close but that isn’t stopping the announcements. Philips Hue is the latest to drop a release bomb with three new products including a new outdoor light bar.

Top of the list is a new Wall Switch Module that is designed to turn standard wall light switches into smart ones, making it easier than ever to add a touch of smarts to your home.

The new Philips Hue wall switch module is the ideal addition to any Philips Hue set up. Installed behind existing light switches, it allows users to turn their existing switch into a smart switch and ensures their smart lighting is always reachable. Whether it is via the app or via voice control: no more getting up from the couch to turn on the switches that a family member or house guest might have turned off.

On top of that we have a new version of the popular Wireless Dimmer Switch that has a new design that is altogether curvier.

The number of buttons has been reduced to three, with the on/off button a new rocker affair.

In addition we also have a new outdoor light strip called the Amarant. It’s designed to be set up in such a way that it can throw light onto a wall and it integrates into existing Hue outdoor products, too.

The new dimmer switch will be available from February 23 for $25, while the Amarant will go on sale March 2 for $170.
