To trigger the mechanical opening assistance, a light pressure is sufficient and the wireless switch moves up automatically. To close, simply press down again into the closed position.

The combination of an integrated energy converter and energy-efficient wireless technology enables a wireless switch without batteries and thus without maintenance.

Configure with Hue Bridge and Hue App

The Friends of Hue switch on the Hidden Socket is fully compatible with the Philips Hue lighting system.

As a Friends of Hue switch, it is recognized by the Hue Bridge (V2 or higher) via the Hue App (V3.2 or higher) and can be easily integrated into an existing system and individually assigned system functions.

Operate your Hue lamps on keys

All four keys of the Friends of Hue switch can be configured with functions of the Hue system, e.g. with switching and control functions such as  

  • On/Off switching
  • Dimming
  • Colour change
  • Calling up light scenes

The switch takes over the light control in your smart home. Simple and exactly the way you want it.


Behind almost every light switch there is also a socket. This is especially true for users of the Philips Hue lighting system. Because for Hue, the Hidden Socket with the Friends of Hue switch makes this dual function available as a retrofit on existing light switches. The best thing about it is: the socket gained is discreetly concealed by the Friends of Hue switch and is only visible when in use. For all situations where free placement is important, the Friends of Hue switch is now also available for easy installation and without a socket.

Retrofitting an existing switch with the Friends of Hue switch and gaining a socket

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.

sockets at a comfortable height

Using sockets at a comfortable height

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.

Die Steckdose kann durch das Push to Open des Friends of Hue Schalters genutzt werden, zum Beispiel zum Staubsaugen.

The light switch on the bed

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.

Child protection in the children's room

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.

The switch-socket combination for the whole house

Housing should be organised in a practical and user-friendly way. This also applies to the electrical installation. It will be user-friendly if, in future, no one will have to differentiate between switch and socket, but if both functions merge into one unit and are always available where they are needed.
