Great price, rarely find these under £17
Great price, thanks OP
When the E27 bulb pack was on with this £20
Good price for the switch but I think the bulb pack is better value, currently £21 from Cookshop.

Still voted hot though, as great price nonetheless.

Definitely, not even sure this is a very good price. I own 4, all bought at different times, and every single one cost less than this

Never could work out the idea behind this.

Isn't it easier to use an app or ask Google etc. to set it to a certain brightness.

Genuinely interested to hear how it is useful.

After getting the switches I don't really use voice control. Often easier to press the button, its quieter and the switches can be placed anywhere an moved. They also cycle through pre-defined settings by pressing the power button multiple times. Its also a lot quicker and responsive.

I would however caveat this by saying more than the switches I use motion sensors, which are the ultimate for automation. Walk in the toilet or open a cupboard... they turn on. Turns off after a preset time and even better at night you can pre-configure a different brightness so great in hallways as a nightlight with kids.

A hell of a lot easier, faster, and quiet - especially at night time, plus you can teach it to do a different "scene" for every press of the on button- something that would take an absolute age with voice control
It's easier to have a sensor. No voice. No touch.

yeh motion sensors for normal use with a few switches for scenes

Problem with sensors is that if you have 2 on one light and the first turns it on for say 5 minutes, even if you walk past the second sensor it ignores you.

It does not extend the time by another 5 minutes.

As a result the light can go off despite you still being in the area, and you need to trip the sensor again.

Sure, you can increase the time, but this often falls if you have sensors upstairs and downstairs on the same lights. Hard to judge how long is long enough.

Most of the other times they are great for short visits to rooms.

Sensor coupling formula in the Hue labs gets around this

Go in to labs, there is a good one to fix this.
I find them very useful to effectively replace a normal light switch. When walk into my bedroom I want to switch the light on quickly, not mess around trying to find my phone. I just wish they would make some in a nicer style!
