    THE PROBLEM:
    The biggest pain point when it comes to the HUE system are wall switches. We have the official dimmer that can''t be mounted in a US 1-gang box and the tap switch. Now we have the runlesswire rocker, which looks promising but at sixty dollars a switch, that adds up really quickly. The aurora helps this problem by adding a toggle switch and a dimmer in the same package that is easy to use at a decent price.

    SETUP:
    My grandma could install this thing. It takes about 10 minutes from start to finish if you have a toggle switches installed in your house. It pairs well with the app and then you select your room to control. Its responsive as well. If a guest comes over, they don''t think twice about how to use it. If you have used a dimmer switch before, you have mastered this already.

    THINGS TO CONSIDER:
    A few gripes with the system. First is build quality. Its fine and I''m sure it will hold up but I was expecting a little bit more than what I got. The center button is wobbly. Its wobbly to the point that I thought it was damaged in shipping. I opened the other two switches I got in the same shipment and they all had the same feel.

    Same goes for the wheel. It feels floaty due to there not being a pot behind it giving any resistance. I tried my best to see if there was anything I could do to improve the feel by adding padding or something to the knob but it''s very tight inside.

    WISH LIST:
    One feature I would love to see implemented in the future is scene selection like the Hue dimmer remote has. Tap the button once for your default scene, tap a second time for a different one. I''d be happy with just two at this point.

    The switch does not show up in home kit or home assistant. It is only accessible through the HUE app. I''d love for them to open it up to allow control through home assistant or openhab. It would expand the usefulness of the switch infinitely.

    I do recommend this switch if you''re being driven crazy by people flipping switches off and then your lights go unresponsive. It does fix that problem 100% but it is a great first attempt at fixing this problem. With a little more work, I think this could be THE switch that people would want to use for HUE.

    You all know the problem. We install these awesome smart bulbs, that are then ruined by someone (especially a guest) flipping the switch on the wall which makes our smart devices unable to connect to them. Additionally, sometimes it is nice to just be able to use the switch on the wall instead of speaking.

    Before that meant having to install a PITA smart switch, which I wasn''t willing to do on every switch in my home. This thing however takes a mere minute to install which I am more than willing to do on every switch in my home.

    Basically it''s just a remote button/dimmer for the lights that is mounted in a way to block the switch to prevent anyone from flipping it. A simple concept, but crazy useful in practice.

    I think the best part about it is the easy install.
    1. Flip switch to on position
    2. Attach mounting plate by simply tightening one screw
    3. Snap dimmer onto mounting plate
    4. Add as a "friends of hue" switch in your hue app

    Installing my first switch, without reading any directions that came with it or anything, took about 2 minutes (see video!). Now that I have purchased several more since making the video and have some experience with it total time from opening the box to having it on the wall controlling my lights is about a minute.

    Really I can only think of two downsides
    1. It requires a standard switch for mounting. If you have one of those new fat style flipper switches this won''t fit on it.
    2. It doesn''t work with LIFX bulbs. I knew this going in as it is specific to Hue bulbs, but it''s still kind of a bummer as I prefer the much better brightness out of the LIFX bulbs. I think it''s worth it to switch to mostly Hue bulbs for this, but if they came out with something similar that could control LIFX bulbs I would be all over it.

    P.S. My apologies that I keep saying "Lufton Aurora" in the video review. I misread the company name.

    Just received the lutron aurora dimmer - up until now I''ve been using the hue dimmer switch for a white entryway light -- but the dimmer was overkill for a white bulb AND folks would hit the lightswitch -- which was a pain before the power-on behavior patch was released. The aurora dimmer goes directly over top of the light switch in the "on" position.

    Of note - I did have an issue getting it to work after initially adding it as an accessory - so i deleted it from the hue app and performed a "reset" on the switch - it is 2x quick presses + a long hold on the 3rd press. Once it starts blinking - perform 3x quick presses and it should forget the settings on the dimmer.

    Once that was done, re-adding as an accessory worked well. It only took a minute and was a pretty minor issue. Very happy with it! Only maybe 1/4 second delay in responding to inputs, so it''s sufficiently responsive for my needs and it looks more natural than a dimmer switch ... which spent most of its time, slightly askew, magnetized to the light switch plate.

    The only thing i''d like added (if lutron product management is granting wishes) would be some kind of double-tap function to perhaps enable another color or scene.

    Update 7/16/2020:

    You can use these without a light switch all together. I got a little creative and just mounted one on two gang switch plate mounted to a one gang electrical box. used this Switch to separate A light and ceiling fan which I’ve wanted to do for a long time. This is only possible if you have A neutral in your light switch box and also a separate dedicated hot wire in your ceiling box. I happen to have both of these so I did not have to run any power to either box to make this work. I hardwired the lights with hue bulbs and the toggle switch on the wall I replaced with a lutron caseta fan dimmer and then wired it so that the switch only controls the fan and not the lights which are now hardwired because they are hue bulbs which can be controlled by the lutron aurora I was actually intending to cut open the wall and put a two gang electrical box in so that I could attach the switch plate to a two gang electrical box, but when I went to do that I realized that the electrical box was sandwiched by two studs so I could not put a two gang box in. I was actually intending to cut open the wall and put a two gang electrical box in so that I could attach the switch plate to a two gang electrical box, but when I went to do that I realized that the electrical box was sandwiched by two studs so I could not put a two gang box in. My solution was to use a bolt about the thickness of a toggle switch. I had to use a washer so the end of the bolt wouldn’t go through the toggle switch hole because The hole was a little bit too wide. After I mounted the Aurora on the end of the bolt I screwed the bolt in just enough to tighten it flush to the switch plate. I had to use a razor blade to gouge a hole in the wall so the switch plate was it flush even though there was a bolt sticking out in the back of it. But this hole that I gouged was much smaller than the hole I was going to cut to add a two gang box so that’s fine. To get the finely threaded switch plate screws I picked up some mr grip form my local big box hardware store. Maybe they sell it on amazon too? Not sure. It’s metal strips you can cut to size with teeth. It’s meant to fix stripped holes in wood and things. In this case screwed the switch plate screws directly into the drywall and then backed them out then I cut multiple tiny strips of the metal and shoved them in holes. After I put enough strips in there the switch plate screws did end up grabbing onto the metal so I could secure them to the drywall.

    The end result was that I had two switches and a nice switch plate on the wall, one controlled my lights and the other one control my fan. From the outside appearance you would never know that there isn’t actually a switch in the wall or even a two gang electrical box. You can see the end result in the very last picture. It is the one with the fan dimmer on the right and the aurora on the left.

    Update 4/6/2020:

    We’ve had these installed for a while now and my son very much enjoys taking them off the wall. He does it with ease and lately he has Raised his interest in this hobby. Yesterday during bath he left the tub, climbed the step stool up to the switch, pulled it off and put it in the tub, and then Proceeded to start pushing the button while it was submerged. Surprisingly, it worked in the tub and continued to work after I pulled it back out and away from the little hands that had it. I decided to set it on a continuously running air purifier for the evening to be on the safe side but I’m not even sure that was necessary. To this moment it is still working! So in case you have some small hands in the house hold you can rest assured, that it is indeed waterproof At least to a certain point.. I guess?

    Summary: This switch is perfect for some areas of our house. I wish it had more flexibility in terms of controls like the hue dimmer remote (namely the ability to have multiple presses control different scenes and homekit support), but where that isn’t completely necessary, this works well. It can, however, be rigged to control homekit devices through homekit automations with hue bulbs. We ended up putting some on normal toggle switch plates for now but some we have put in all decora style switch plates that we really like by using an adapter from amazon (more on that in 4th paragraph under “style”). Beware though, toddlers love to push the button and I wouldn’t say this thing is super durable.

    Style:

    The switch looks pretty good but in my opinion could look better. As you may be able to tell, it looks a lot like one of those cheap rotary dimmers. That is just as true in real like as it is in the pictures. This could be looked at as good or bad. If you are going for the high tech modern look I’m afraid I wouldn’t say this item really fills that need. If you are looking for something that looks normal, blends in, and is functional then this will be perfect for you. I have only a couple of complaints about the style.

    Namely that the base for this white switch is grey? Which I can’t make any sense of. I think it would look better if the base was white, maybe even more modern. I’m not sure what the motivation was behind the seeable base being grey.

    And secondly the light that lights up in the switch during use is just a small dot in the top (pictured) I think it would look better if they would have made just the center of Switch glow in its entirety, but due to the construction of this switch that might of been too difficult to engineer?

    We wanted to use them with all decora style plates we really liked and we were able to do that by using adapters which you can find on amazon by searching “Toggle Switch Adapter Plate“. The one we used was about $12 and made by a brand called taymac. You can see the end result in the picture, it turned out pretty well. The aurora switch doesn’t completely cover the adapters’ depression but it almost covers it and it’s hardly noticeable what of the depression isn''t covered.

    Durability:

    I would not recommend using this switch in super rugged scenarios or if you are going to have this switch in direct reachability of a toddler who loves to “push the button”. It is pretty easy to remove (my 2 year old has no problem with that), and it is also possible to break the clip to fasten the switch to the base. I haven’t personally broken it, but I received a warehouse deal that I am returning which has a broken clip (so most likely someone else broke it and returned it). Aside from it getting broken I’d also be scared for it to go missing. It’s quite small and if it ended up in some crevice I’m not sure how or if we’d ever find it again. I’ve had to completely take it off the wall a couple times when my two year old is having a little too much fun with it.

    Also, in general, this switch just seems cheaply made. I’m not too upset for the amount of tech you get packed into this tiny little device for such an affordable price, I wouldn’t expect much more. But you just have to be careful.

    Functionality:

    It works well. It does the job. The two main purposes of this switch are equally successfully fulfilled. Even when my toddler takes the switch off the wall, he still can’t flip the switch underneath with the base installed (and he tried). It also obviously keeps any unknowing guests from turning off your smart lighting which was a main concern for Me.

    As far as lighting the lights goes. Yes it works. Sometimes there is a very slight delay, but really maybe half a second or something. It’s not bad. It’s not as seamless as a regular switch.. But when all your lights are hooked into a network you can’t really expect it to be. That being said if a delay at all will bother you, you may want to consider the hue dimmer remote switch, I’ve found less delay with that. (there are switch plates you can Find on the internet That hold the remote magnetically and cover the switch just like this dimmer too, just search hue dimmer switch plate and they should come up. Keep in mind they are rough 3D printed plastic they’ll need to be sanded and painted to look as perfect as a store bought switch plate but they work well ). But still like i said the delay is only sometimes there and it’s minimal when it is there.

    It can be flipped upside down to lock a switch in the opposite position (for example for three way switches or switches put in upside down). The light in the switch even automatically rotates to the other side of the switch to accommodate the new direction.

    On this switch only the side of the switch turns when dimming not the whole switch like on a cheap rotary dimmer. The center of the switch never rotates. Also, only the center of the button can be pushed in not the whole switch, like the cheap rotary dimmers. Not that that matters to me but maybe it’s notable for some people.

    If you’re worried about set up and installation don’t be. The whole process is less than a few minutes per switch including both installing dimmer over The toggle switch and hooking it up to the lights in the hue app. It’s very easy, fast, and self explanatory. Go to accessory set up in settings panel in hue app. Then click on friends of hue and Lutron aurora is right on top for me. It tells you exactly how to set up the switch right in the hue app, I didn’t hardly need the instruction manual and I didn’t need any kind of Lutron app at all.

    My only complaint here is that I wish they would implement the ability to double or triple tap to activate different scenes. In the areas of the house where we needed this option we just bought the hue dimmer remote switch, but since I know the aurora is capable of this (you have to double and/or triple tap during set up) I wish they would add it as a feature of the lighting abilities too. For now all you can do is just set up which scene you want activated (or last on state) and it is what it is.

    Also you cannot use this to control anything else in home kit like you can with the hue remote dimmer switch because this is not a homekit device. It works with the hue lights and nothing else so if you were hoping to have this control other devices or set a scene in homekit it won’t work. You could do a work around with an automaton if you really wanted to (set an automation in homekit: if the bathroom light turns on/off then the bathroom fan turns on/off) but you cannot just make a button press activate a homekit scene or accessory otherwise. We have now done this with a light on a homekit scent diffuser (made by vocolink for $50) that we placed in our bathroom. I currently have it set up to turn on green when the bathroom light is turned on during the day and turn off when the bathroom light is turned off. It works with near 100 percent accuracy and sometimes the diffuser light comes in a smidgen quicker than the bathroom light some how. I also have the diffuser light come on to a more night time like color after a certain hour at night too which is possible because you can put time restraints on your automations in homekit. You cannot, however, use homekit automatons to dim and brighten a homekit device (as in the diffuser light) when you dim and brighten the hue light with the aurora switch. There is no way to set that up, it can only be triggered by an on/off. You can however set what brightness you’d like your homekit device to turn onto when your hue light comes on. But it will always turn on to that same brightness with the exception, of course, of putting time restraints on it (before 5pm turn to 100% brightness after 5 pm turn to 50% brightness.. etc).

    Over all I’m pretty happy with this switch and we have now purchased multiple for different areas of the house and they all work well with the exception of the ones that arrived broken.

    Bought two of these Lutron Smart dimmers to replace legacy dimmers we had already in the house. They work incredibly well, not one connection issue yet in over a month. Setup was super fast and simple, nothing too complex.

    Just open up the Phillips Hue app, add accessory, select friend of Hue, choose your device and seconds later it is added to your home and ready to control any light group you choose.

    In terms of installation they just clip over a standard toggle switch, so you will have to make sure that you have those on the wall already where you want to put these.

    When rotating the ring to dim or brighten your lights, there is little to no lag, very responsive. You almost can’t even tell that they’re not just normal bulbs and a normal dimmer. There is a button in the middle to press to toggle the lights on or off.

    My only complaint is price and I hesitated to purchase these because of that reason, but if you need this style of dimmer for Phillips Hue lights, get these. Can’t recommend them enough, it’s really refreshing to have smart home technology that does not have connection issues.

Once that is done then you have tell turn on the light again and check that it is still paired to Alexa. Sometimes we will do that, whenever we have guests they always use the light switches. This little device is perfect, it ensures that the switch itself is always on and I''m sure guests will recognize that the switch is a dimmer switch so our guests can take care of lights as they are accustomed and they won''t be reseting my carefully crafted Alexa home.

    The actual dimmer function is slow/delayed and sometimes glitchy. Otherwise, this serves the purpose well of covering over an existing wall switch that must remain on, and returning some functionality to the switch location.

    I typically find the Philips Hue approach (of add smarts directly to the bulb and giving zero consideration to the light switch) to be terrible and I no longer use them...I''ve gone the route of adding proper smart switches to enable both a traditional and smart experience. But I found a case where it was still useful to do this. I had an existing wall switch controlling some over-cabinet lighting, which I decided to convert into an outlet instead, and plug in Philips Hue Light Strips. Since I prefer to have a wall switch for everything that is also smart, and a regular smart dimmer wouldn''t work here, this Lutron dimmer product was the exact right finishing touch for this project.

    - I wish the on/off button had more support to it; it pushes in at the edges more than the center.
    - The dial is smooth and has good resistance.
    Overall, it''s the best product out there for manually controlling Hue lights.

    Unlike a few other reviewers, I do not have any problem with the build quality. The lights can be turned on/off with a tap -- this would feel a bit more natural if the entire button tapped in/out, rather than just the entire centre console (leaving a thin circle that does not tap). I do not know about battery life -- have not had it that long. The lag is comparable with say a smartphone app controller, about what I expect. In its default out-of-box config, it turns that lights to maximum brightness when tapped-out ... I think I would have preferred it to maintain the prior brightness level. Also would be nice to be able to play with the light temperature points - it seems to warm the light a bit as it dims, but more control would be nice. Possibly an app other than the default Philips Hue control app might let me do this (I am using the Lutron dimmer with a Hue hub). To connect to the Hue hub, I did have to do a couple hard resets on the Lutron dimmer. Not sure why, but this was easy enough and the initial connection was at least able to identify the Lutron dimmer and thus easily give me the reset instructions (it was connected, but would not control the lights it was supposed to control). All worked fine after a couple reconnects -- about par for any modern electronic device these days, it seems.

    A great device to ensure switches are locked on, and to allow anyone to easily use your Hue lights.

    I admit that I would love to see these around the $20-30 mark, but at the end of the day, they are a product I''m happy to spend $50 for. When it comes to smart devices in a house, I absolutely love smart lights, but their usefulness tends to break down once you start to factor in other people. I''m happy to tinker with things and set customized routines and triggers without thinking of it, but what about family, friends, or guests? Its something new that they might only temporarily or rarely be exposed to, and the more removed it is from ''flip switch get light'' the more annoyed people are likely to get. When it comes to convenience, I''ve played around with Philips Hue switches before because they get closer to the "standard light switch package", but I haven''t found anything more directly effective than this. It first deals with the problem of ''how do people interact with lights'' via allowing people to either press the switch to turn it on/off, and allows for people to control a dimmer feature via spinning the dial. But, more importantly, it locks operation of the light switch. I currently live in an apartment so I cannot connect or disconnect certain plugs from a switch, and there are times that I do not want a light switch to be operational - like, for example, if the switch connects to a plug that powers my computer or other devices I expect to stay on. Installation of this over a switch stops that switch from being fiddled with, while still letting easy control of lights. Even when you''re not dealing with something that wants/assumes constant power, smart lights losing power can be a bit of a pain in the butt in the first place: Philips Hue has a ''power on'' default now (thankfully), but I''m not sure about their competitors. It at least means that you''re not going to have strange reactions when lights are powered on, but lights that are off will never respond to a remote command. Locking the switch on means that this isn''t an issue, and the ease of operation by anyone who isn''t even tech-inclined means that the switch being locked on won''t be an issue.

    I love home kit including smart lights but the insanely frustrating problem is people (mostly guests and even my own kids) flip my Philips hue switches off leaving them unresponsive. I’ve been looking for a solution for a long time and have finally found it. Yes, $50 is steep but worth every penny. Easy to install, works effortlessly and looks nice. No scenes but you can select a different default scene (like “last on” or “energize” and others). I did have to replace my decora switch with a toggle which wasn’t ideal but a small price to pay. I also had to spend $20 on a new wall plate that fit 1 toggle and 2 decora. Lutron apparently makes a decora insert but good luck finding this product anywhere. Anyways, totally recommend. I have 7 more switches that control hue lights that I will be replacing with the Aurora.

    Too Expensive/No Scenes
    Reviewed in Canada on September 25, 2019
    Way too expensive. At least add multiple scenes for that price. It''s a little flimsy but does look and work nicely. Can''t justify the cost when you can get Philips dimmer for half the price.

    Works great once setup, but the setup process was a nightmare. I have never had issues with any other hue or friends of hue products, bit this took over an hour to get working. The range seems to be inferior to the hue remotes, and it costs about double what those do. Once setup, it is pretty nice, but sometimes fails to respond, unlike the hue remotes that she to always work perfectly. Overall, I would recommend the first party totes from Philips unless you are very particular about the look.
