In order to trigger the mechanical opening support, a slight pressure is sufficient and the switch automatically moves upwards. To close, simply push the switch back down to the locking position.
The combination of a miniaturized energy converter and energy-efficient wireless technology enables a maintenance-free wireless switch without batteries.
The Friends of Hue socket switch is fully compatible with the Philips Hue lighting system.
The Friends of Hue switch is recognized as a Hue App (V3.2 and higher) by the Hue Bridge (V2 and higher) and can be easily integrated into an existing system and individually assigned system functions.
All four switching buttons of the Friends of Hue switch can be freely configured with functions of the Hue system, e.g. with these switching and control functions ... On/Off switching, dimming, colour changes or calling up light scenes.
The switch on the hidden socket controls the light in your Smart Home. Simple and exactly the way you want it to be.
What you need for the installation of the Hidden Socket is usually available with light switches and sockets: they are installed on a flush-mounted socket in which a 230 V power cable is connected. Replacing existing sockets with hidden sockets is even easier - they can be easily exchanged for each other.
The Friends of Hue Switch offers a light switch that covers the hidden socket and releases it via push-to-open. The Switch has all switching functions of the Hue Tap and is also battery and maintenance free.
In addition to doors, the Hidden Socket can replace an existing light switch in order to use it temporarily at a convenient operating height, e.g. for vacuum cleaning. This operation without bending down is particularly convenient for older people.
The Hidden Socket is a matter of design. For temporary use, the Hidden Socket can be retrofitted with a socket outlet under the existing light switch. The advantage here is that this socket is discreet and is aesthetically covered by the light switch and only visible if necessary.
With the +Charge version, each socket can be extended by a charging function. Simply move the switch upwards, plug the charging cable into the USB socket and the mobile device and place it in the shelf below.
In the bedroom it is worth retrofitting a hidden socket light switch on the existing socket if the light is also to be switched comfortably at the bedside.
To protect children from electric shock, the Hidden Socket can be magnetically locked. The locking function can only be released with the magnetic key from accessories.
With a simple lockable cover (without a switch or Tap), lockable service sockets can be installed in the public space of e.g. kindergartens, schools or offices, which can only be opened and used by service staff such as caretakers or cleaning personnel using a magnetic key.
Hidden Socket is patented because of its innovative details under EPA-No. 3079209.
