When using your dimmer switch with Philips Hue white ambiance or Philips Hue white and color ambiance products, you can use the on-button to switch between 4 light recipes, or use the Philips Hue app to configure your favorite 4 scenes. It's all up to you.
If you have a starter kit, screw the bulbs into your existing light fittings and turn on your wall light switches. For other Philips Hue lights, such as Philips Hue lightstrip plus, you only have to plug them in and power them. Simple.
Plug in your bridge and it will automatically power up. Connect it to your Wi-Fi router using the network cable provided. Wait for the three lights to come on and you are good to go.
Download the app in the App Store or Google Play Store. Connect to the bridge. Find your lights. And there you have it, you've got Philips Hue.
Now that your system is up and running, it's time to get familiar with the possibilities of Philips Hue. Explore the functions of the Philips Hue app or download and try some third party apps and discover new ways to play with light. And when you're ready, you can expand your system to enjoy Philips Hue even more.

I want to connect the lamps/luminaires, which are connected to my Hue dimmer switch to my Hue system. How can I do that?
Instead of connecting each lamp/connected luminaire separately you can use your Hue dimmer switch to do the work for you. Open the app, got to Settings > Accessory setup > press the “+” button and select "Hue dimmer switch". Follow onscreen instructions and you are good to go. Connected luminaire: Still, Being, Fair, Amaze, Cher, Wellner, Wellness, Pillar or Runner.
I've pressed the setup button on the back of the dimmer switch too long and now my switch is not working any more. How do I get it back?
Delete the switch from the hue system using the hue app (Settings > Accessory setup and select the Hue dimmer switch which you want to delete and tap “delete” on the bottom of the screen). Reconnect the Hue dimmer switch again by pressing the “+” button in the app (Settings > Accessory setup) and follow onscreen instructions.When done the Hue dimmer switch is up and running again.
My switch does not seem to be responding anymore in the hue system. What can I do to fix this?
To get your Hue dimmer switch up and running again, press and hold the 4 buttons simultaneously until the LED turns green for a moment. Then wait for 30s and you are good to go.
How can I connect multiple lamps to a Hue dimmer switch?
Power up the lamp you want to connect. Hold the Hue dimmer switch close to the lamp (<15cm) and press and hold the ON button until the LED on the front turns green (during this process lamp will blink several times). The lamp is now connected to the Hue dimmer switch. You can connect up to 10 lights.
How many Hue dimmer switches can I connect to the hue system?
The number of Hue dimmer switches which can be connected is depending on the number of the already installed accessories like Hue taps, Hue motion sensors and on the number of created Routines (e.g. Go to Sleep, Home & Away, etc.). If you do not have other accessories connected to the Hue bridge, you can connect up to 12 Hue dimmer switches. If you encounter issues in adding acessories, delete some of your Routines.
