Six new partners added to the Friends of Hue program, offering consumers a greater choice of products that seamlessly integrate with the Philips Hue smart lighting system
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the global leader in lighting, today announces six new partners joining its Friends of Hue program. Busch-Jaeger, a Germany-based company in the ABB group and US-based Illumra join a growing band of Friends of Hue control manufacturers to offer consumers a greater variety of Philips Hue-compatible wall switches. Meanwhile, Kichler (USA), MAKRIS by Imoon (Italy), Koizumi (Japan) and John Lewis (UK) join the Friends of Hue program bringing a variety of new luminaires.
Available in various colors and styles, the new Friends of Hue smart switches allow you to select a wall switch to suit your home decor, matching your taste and interior design. With the switches you can turn your Philips Hue or Friends of Hue lights on or off, or dim the lights and even select your favorite scenes. They can be combined with existing switches and wall outlets from the same brand, as they mechanically fit in their specific single and multiple wall frames. All Friends of Hue switches make use of the wireless, battery-free technology from EnOcean, enabling the switches to operate without batteries or power.
