Yes you need a hub.

You can use a cheap dimmer switch from ikea with their cheap smart bulbs without a hub.

I use the Ikea dimmer on a hue bulb. Connected directly via zigbee

Thanks but I already have 6x yeelight rgb. Any ideas about those?
Xiaomi do a cheap hub. Check previous prices on hukd. Then add Xiaomi light switches which are designed to be portable and therefore wireless. Can be put down on a table or stuck on a wall either with velcro or glued I suppose.

I'm looking at getting a Xiaomi Smart Hub and wired light switches. Which wired switches do we need in the uk as I believe there are 2 different ones? Neutral & Live wire ( Neutral &Fire line ) version, or the single live wire(Single Fire line) version.

My house was built this year so has all the wiring to current regulations. Any help is much appreciated.

no idea, but you might want to check behind your switch as to what is there. (Obviously you would need to turn off at the consumer unit first before looking.)
Agreed. Would be easier if you unscrews and look/took pictures of the wires going into the current light switch; so you can find out which version you need. Obviously you will want to turn off the electricity in the house or at least the lighting circuit first to be safe.
Can use these in a press switch



If your careful

Check out the Logitech Pop Switches, you can currently get a pack of two (and a hub) for about £50 on Amazon, bit pricier than these but they offer multi use controls from double/long taps.

hmmm i'm about to take back 2 ikea bulbs, the dimmer, and the round bulky switch, couldn't get them to work properly with philips hue at all. the bulb paired at first dead easy, then just wouldn't reconnect at all. i don't have the ikea hub so couldn't check the firmware, but the bulb did pair at first so i assume it's on compatible firmware. anyway i was more interested in the switches, which didn't work properly at all (again, couldn't update the firmware) as £20 for a hue switch become a real pain for something like hallway lights.

These are what I'm after by the look of it!
I've got Yeelights about the house, and would like a physical switch.

Any idea on the battery life of these?
Are these IP rated to be mounted outside, (used as a door bell switch)? I can't find anything online but I wondered if anyone has used it as such and can comment on the mechanical seals etc?

I don't know if it's IP rated as such, but mine has been used as a doorbell for several months completely exposed and is still going fine.

Cheers, just bought off the back of your experience 🏻. Just got to find a suitable camera to put together a cheap Ring-a-like!
