Exactly what could be better than getting a foot in the intelligent lighting scene without the need for wires, electricians, and prolonged setup processes? Well, we can actually consider a couple of things in all sincerity, but if the Philips Shade variety of intelligent lighting has been on your radar for a while, then the official intro of the Shade Wireless Dimming Kit should spark excitement. The latest product to enhance the Shade range will certainly be the cheapest yet and could function as an incredibly attractive “entry level” kit to get individuals thinking about what Tone needs to offer.

Philips is promoting the newest Color product as an ‘‘ installation-free’ dimming lighting system, and is one that exists as the “only dimmer switch that works out of the box”. That pledge essentially means that any household or location of business has the ability to experience the sophistication and sophistication that a dim lighting presence can offer. It’s likewise an exceptionally vital included benefit that the Shade Wireless Dimming Kit doesn’t need modifications to existing lighting circuits, nor does it even need the Tone bridge that has generally been needed to link the company’s other Tone items to the house’s network.


Each bought Shade Wireless Dimming Kit likewise has a Philips Hue white bulb, as well as a wireless Tone dimmer switch that offers a functional control. The versatile nature of the accompanying switch means that it can be made use of as a portable and highly portable remote control, or can be repaired to a wall or any other surface magnetically, using a wall install.

Based upon the official Philips technical info, the white bulb ought to be good for roughly 25,000 hours of usage and advantages from that it reaches maximum brightness right away rather than taking a while to reach its full capacity.
