Royal Philips, the global leader in lighting, has expanded its Hue home lighting ecosystem to include the new Philips Hue Tap* in New Zealand. Powered by kinetic energy, the smart light switch can be mounted on the wall or left in a handy spot to control Hue* for times when your phone is on charge or the kids are playing with your tablet.

Philips Hue Tap is as smart as the Philips Hue bulbs it controls, and just as easy to use. Each of the four buttons can be programmed from the app on the user’s smartphone or tablet, whether it’s to set a favourite scene or light recipe, or just to turn Hue on and off.

Philips Hue Tap also needs no batteries as it operates using kinetic energy – it’s charged simply through the tap of your fingers. As a result, it has a remarkable zero watts of power consumption and needs no main power source. This means it’s not only smarter, but efficient and hassle-free.
