Frequently asked question
I feel V1 is superior. Form should follow function! V2 is aesthetically superior to V1 V1 is functionally superior to V2: … see more I feel V1 is superior. Form should follow function! V2 is aesthetically superior to V1 V1 is functionally superior to V2: * V2 pivots off the wall on occasion when pressed on edge due to aesthetic geometry & reduced magnet strength * V2 buttons can be pressed without activation (I frequently do and it's annoying) * V2 button functionality is easier to understand, however, less user friendly overall imo... I have to push the power button, then shift my hand to push a different button to change the setting. Seems simple, and it's actually quite annoying. ** V1, I just push the On button multiple times to cycle through scenes. No shifting my hand to find a different button. Simple and 'low friction.' The buttons always register a positive press.
A seller name Ellions is scamming Amazon customers by charging double the price claiming there is a 'premium' version of the product (there isn't). He's been reported.
I am about to purchase one for a separate issue, but for a gang of three, it is possible (sort of). You could find a friend that has a 3D printer and fabricate a custom faceplate for the switches. Just a thought. Might help.

A must have!!
These switches look and function much better than I thought. Way more convenient than grabbing my phone or tablet to turn my lights on/off. Also prefer way more than asking Google. I opted to screw in the backplates instead of using the adhesive that comes on the back. They don’t come with screws, but getting a couple per backplate at a local Lowe’s is no big deal. The Hue button can be setup up to 5 presets (scenes). Highly, highly recommended!!07/14/2022Verified Purchase
Limited Settings Hobble Usefulness
The hue app has VERY limited options you can select from on this.
I wanted to toggle between daylight-dependent light and a specific scene I use for zoom calls. That’s it. Impossible.
You can either set it up for daylight (time) dependent use and render the Hue button useless, or have specific scenes toggle. Not both. Why???
I came up with a very cumbersome workaround of creating a time-dependent scene in the middle of the night for the zoom scene I made and I can now press the hue button five times (get timing perfect: too fast or too slow and it won’t work). I shouldn”t need to do that.
Let me just pick what the buttons do.05/10/2022Verified Purchase
Improved but magnet change from base to remote will take some getting used to
I’ve been a VERY happy owner of the 1st version of this device. I keep it on my refrigerator to control all of the lights in the kitchen. This is due to the fact that the wall switch is in an inconvenient location.
When I saw this new version I thought I would update. And while the addition of having a dedicated button for light themes, the omission of dedicated magnets on the base mean that you cannot simply put this new version on a steel surface. To get the same functionality, you would have to remove the base, then the magnets on the remote will work fine. Nice and strong. Caveat, the remote on the old original version was not magnetic and so the base was required. While this post no problem for me as I prefer to have the base remain where it was, the new version allows you to discard the base entirely and simply place the remote on whatever steel structure you have. The benefit there, is a smaller footprint for the switch. I still prefer to have the magnets on the base and be able to pull the remote off, but that is a personal preference.
The old switch and base were thicker quality plastic, glossy. The new is matte finish and feels thin and flimsy, but I’m sure that’s to allow the magnets in the remote to get through to whatever steel surface you may be using.
It’s a small detail but that just means that I would either have to store the cheap, flimsy, plastic base somewhere or discard it and hope I don’t need it in the future. But for those who are using the adhesives on the back to stick on a wall, this is a non-issue for you.
The integration was incredibly quick. When I opened the Alexa app on my phone, it had already detected the new device and asked me to configure.
The process was quick and painless, select the group, room, or lights and rename. That was it.
All in all this is a solid update, I just would prefer that the base was not so light, flimsy, and cheap.
All in all, a great quality product and one that I definitely recommend. If Amazon allowed I would give it 4.5 Stars out of 5.04/11/2022Verified Purchase
