Should be called Hue Clunk. Button presses can be hit and miss.
I was really looking forward to this to save using my phone to change lighting scenes, and the idea of effortlessly tapping a disc I was really looking forward to this to save using my phone to change lighting scenes, and the idea of effortlessly tapping a discreet little box on the wall was appealing. However it's a bit clunky in practice.
There are 4 buttons you program from the app, the large front panel acts as the first button, then there are 3 smaller ones inset into it.
Thing is, the buttons need quite a hefty click to register. The smaller buttons also rely on pressing the central button down to work. That is, you press them down to a stop, then you need to keep pressing further until the whole central button presses down. Unfortunately because of this it's often easy to not push them far enough, so clicks aren't always registered.
Although the fact the device needs no batteries is very clever, I'd think I'd have preferred something that took batteries and was more responsive and easier to register clicks on. That and the high price gets it 3 stars. …

No More Fumbling in the Dark
This is great for the bedroom. No more waking the tablet up to switch lights on or off. I use the big button to turn off all light This is great for the bedroom. No more waking the tablet up to switch lights on or off. I use the big button to turn off all lights, including those in other rooms. The smaller buttons are set for relaxing, reading and turning on the lounge/kitchen lights in the morning so I can make coffee. It took me a minute or two to realise that a button either turns lights on OR off, not both. The buttons are not a toggle, so having one button for 'off' is needed. …

I must admit, it is a little pricey- hence the 4-star but the Hue tap is a must have if you have the hue bulbs as finding your pho I must admit, it is a little pricey- hence the 4-star but the Hue tap is a must have if you have the hue bulbs as finding your phone to turn the lights on or change scene can get extremely annoying after a while. The tap sometimes doesn't pick up presses but that may be as it works off its own 'microgenerator' that doesn't need batteries or wiring. It is really easy to set up with the app, and has a removable fitting that sticks on the wall with 3m so no nails required either which for me was a bonus. Overall, a great product with little problems but overpriced. …
