Like most Hue stuff it's expensive but at £14 off the standard retail price this shouldn't be cold. Voted hot although it's still more than I'm willing to pay for a light switch.

Great price. Don't think I've ever seen it this cheap.

Thanks OP

Why would someone buy this when modern hue switch is £19 or £30 in a kit with dimmable lamp? Don't get it. It is just not worth it. (I have 8 wireless remotes and about 20 lamps)

It's not a dimmer switch, it's for switching between moods/scenes.

With the iConnectHue app you can configure the newer dimmer switch to do pretty much anything. Very very cool.

You can do that with the dimmer switch by pressing the on button several times as it then runs through the scenes you've set.

That's decent, didn't realise the dimmer allowed you switch scenes as well.

Good price, cheapest its been so have heat
However as others have said the hue remote seems more flexible overall and is easier to use (simple click rather than having to almost hit the buttons on the hue tap!)
The hue remote allows simple dimming and switching through scenes, comes with a handy wall mount but can be used in the hand. The only advantage the tap has is not needing a battery and I think it can control a few extra scenes.
