How does the tap switch work?

There is a kinetic, energy-harvesting system within the Philips Hue tap switch. The sensor detects pressure on its buttons and harvests the energy needed in order to connect to the bulbs, using ZigBee technology. The Philips Hue tap switch does not need batteries or a mains power source; it is operated purely on kinetic energy. This means the Philips Hue tap switch has a remarkable zero watts of power consumption, making it smarter, greener, with no battery waste and hassle-free.
