Philips has this week announced a new kit for its Hue lighting range that includes a wireless dimming switch.

You can stick this switch to a wall and control the intensity of your Philips Hue without needing to do any electrical wiring. The kit will also come with a white Philips Hue to join the switch.

On the back of the switch there is the base plate that sticks to the wall, and on the front you will find the remote part of the switch that can be removed from the housing for more portable control, or left on the wall to control your lighting from there.

With it you can dim the Philips Hue with both smooth and gradual brightness control, and it is able to control up to 10 Philips Hue white lights at the same time, allowing you to dim or increase the brightness in a large room at once.

“The Philips Hue wireless dimming kit is the lightbulb moment that will spark the natural progression into the modern, connected home,” said Leonardo Avezzano, product marketing director of Philips Hue.

“Not only does the kit show how simple it is to have clever products in your home, but like all Philips Hue products it is entirely futureproof. With the kit, anyone is able to begin enjoying the simplicity of modern dimming.”

The new wireless dimming kit for Philips Hue will be available from September for £29.99, with additional white Hue bulbs also available for £14.99 each.
