Just place the switch anywhere you like and use it as a remote control.
Installation free dimming
Connect the Philips Hue Dimmer switch to your Philips Hue Bridge, configure it via the app, and control your favorite Philips Hue light scene without using your smart device. You can turn your lights on/off, or smoothly dim your favorite light scene to the right brightness. Link up to 10 Philips Hue White Light Bulbs to your dimmer switch and control them simultaneously.
Fast and simple installation
The battery-powered Hue Dimmer switch can be used as a regular wall switch. You can place it anywhere you want, using screws or the adhesive tape on the back plate of the switch. It is a fast, simple installation with no wires and no hassle.

The switch is magnetic and can be removed from the back plate. This allows you to also use the Philips Hue Dimmer switch as a remote control for your light with an indoor range of up to 12 meters.
Switch between scenes
When using your dimmer switch with Philips Hue white ambience or Philips Hue white and colour ambience products, you can use the on button to switch between 4 light recipes, or use the Philips Hue app to configure your favourite 4 scenes. It's all up to you.
Connect up to 50 Hue bulbs and lamps
You can connect up to 50 lights and 10 accessories to the Philips Hue bridge (not included). Simply begin with any of the available starter kits or a separate bridge and start adding Philips Hue products. You can then control your lights at the swipe of a finger with the intuitive Philips Hue app. Philips Hue is based on ZigBee, a low power, safe and reliable technology for controlling your lights. New features and improvements are continuously added to the system. Updates to both software and firmware are done wirelessly and seamlessly directly to your Philips Hue products.
Zigbee is an open standard for a low-cost, low-power, wireless mesh network targeted at the wide development of devices for wireless control and monitoring applications. By building on top of the physical layer and media access control defined in the IEEE standard 188.8.131.52 it natively supports mesh networking as well as offering secure communications by default.
Backed by some of the worlds biggest companies, including Philips, Nest, Samsung, Texas, Siemens & Whirlpool, Zigbee technology is currently being built into millions of Smart Home Devices worldwide. Lights, thermostats, alarms, fridges, doors, appliances, utility meters - all are being Zigbee enabled. Recently the likes of Amazon, Apple and Google have all begun to integrate Zigbee into their Smart Speakers and Smart Screens too!
With Zigbee based devices you get a robust, resilient and self-managing system. Zigbee devices are often much simpler than their Z-Wave counterparts, preferring to focus on specific tasks such as motion sensing or dimming a light, rather than trying to combine lots of different functionality into one device.
During the early years they often used "closed" protocols at the application layer, meaning that products from different vendors wouldn't interoperate, but fortunately the standard has been through many revisions to improve this. Broadly speaking there are two Zigbee profiles in use - Zigbee Light Link (ZLL) and Zigbee Home Automation (ZHA). Devices within each profile should work together out-of-the-box and, as long as your Zigbee Controller supports a specific profile, devices from that profile should work within it.
Zigbee also uses a single frequency globally - the 2.4GHz band (the same as 2.4GHz WiFi). This means that you can use devices from around the world in your Zigbee network without having to worry about picking the correct frequency! For further information see the Silicon Labs reference.
There's also an emerging standard called Zigbee 3.0 which merges both the ZLL and ZHA profiles, combining the strengths of each into one new standard. In most cases Zigbee 3.0 devices are backwards compatible with Zigbee Controllers that only support ZLL or ZHA.
The Zigbee Alliance now promotes Zigbee as the protocol for the so-called "Internet of Things" (IoT) due to its open and non-proprietary nature and because it is now a mature, reliable and clearly defined standard.
Zigbee offers FIVE key solutions in its portfolio:
Zigbee creates flexibility for developers & end users, while delivering stellar interoperability. Created on IEEE’s 802.15.4 using the 2.4GHz band and a self-healing true mesh network, Zigbee has many applications and is widely implemented across the globe.
Dotdot gives product developers the freedom to choose the network that works for their application, and consumers the freedom to choose the brands and products that transform the way we live, work and play.
Green Power is a battery-less feature for smart networks cast across large facilities. Green Power enables wireless devices to be powered utilizing energy-harvesting methods with limited or no batteries.
Smart Energy is the world’s leading standard for interoperable products that monitor, control, inform and automate the delivery and use of energy and water. It helps create greener homes by giving consumers the information and automation needed to easily reduce their consumption.
JupiterMesh is the robust, low-power industrial IoT wireless mesh network with flexible data rates that enables neighborhood and field area communications for utilities and municipalities deploying intelligent grid and smart city solutions.
