Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Royal Philips, the global leader in lighting, today announces a world's first: hue tap, a clever little switch which makes controlling your favorite hue light scenes even easier. Being kinetic-powered no batteries are needed.
Reinventing the light switch
Hue tap is as smart as the hue bulbs it controls, and just as easy to use. For moments when you prefer not to use your smart device to turn the lights on, such as when your phone is charging or the kids are playing with your tablet, simply tap! Also, you can extend your app into the physical world by putting your favorite scene creations from the hue app or groups of lights onto the four buttons of hue tap. Simply cycle to the one you want, in an instant.
Zero power consumption, zero wires
Hue tap needs no batteries as it operates using kinetic energy - simply through taps from your finger. As a result, it has a remarkable zero watts of power consumption and needs no mains power source. Meaning it's not only smarter, but greener and hassle free.
"Hue tap is the perfect solution for users who want to control their personal wireless lighting with yet more convenience," remarks Filip Jan Depauw, Senior Director, Philips Lighting. "It is more than just a modern take on the wall switch - it combines easy-to-use traditional lighting control with the smart, intuitive, fun world of hue."
Philips hue tap requires the hue bridge found with all starter kits for hue and Friends of hue products. Hue tap is available after summer in North America and Europe at selected retail outlets for US $59.95 / €59.95 (RRP).
