This looks like a great birthday present Jo!
As much as I love the idea of controlling my lights with a phone app, tablet or PC from any location anywhere in the world, sometimes it is handy to switch on the lights at a physical switch, which could be next to my bed or on the lounge table or in the kitchen.
That is where the Philips Hue Wireless dimming kit is so brilliant. The switch itself is portable, but it can also be held on a back plate because the back is magnetic. It can be stuck to the wall with sticky adhesive tap, or it can be screwed to the wall.
Today the Bowen’s house stepped into the 21st century. All our lights can now be control by voice, mobile, tablet, PC or neither, because they are automated and know when to turn on or off. Limitless possibilities they say!
I invested in a Philips Hue because they have great ratings and reviews and I know a few people who are running them and all I have heard is praise.
