The Philips Hue Smart Button brings convenience and smart home automation to the Hue ecosystem. The button can be paired with any Hue smart light to control just one or a group of lights across your home. With full dimming and brightening technology, press the button to light the way, even if you forget your phone. Program the hue smart button in the Hue App to trigger specific preset scenes or to use our new “natural light” setting. Simplify your life through smart home automation. With a smart light switch that is so much more than a light switch, you can configure it to activate “smart automation” to tailor it to your personal needs. These automations will help you get the most out of your Philips Hue smart lighting system. You can change the Smart Button’s default settings in the Hue App to control the effects of your smart bulbs, set your very own light scene, or to control all the smart lights in a specific room.

Time dependent light color scheme is clever. (Button press can turn lights on on in a specific color depending on the time of day).
Small remote button with its magnet can be stuck on a metal surface.
Battery went flat one month after opening the package
Unnecessarily oversized remote mounting is ugly being much bigger than normal light switch boss.
The cheaper 4 button Hue remote dimmer switch is much more useful and better looking.

It does have a serious flaw: Mine arrived with a dead battery. I put in a replacement and got it working. After a few minutes of experimenting with it, my Home app reports that the battery I just put in is already down to 27%.
Oh, and the box has a misprint. It states that the device uses a CR2450 battery. This is not true. It uses a CR2032 battery. a CR2450 would not even come close to fitting. They got confused I guess, as their other dimmer switches do use a CR2450.
I will give it a few days before I decide to return the device.
UPDATE - a firmware update and a fresh battery seems to have solved the battery drain issue. I have increased my rating. Not 5-stars though, because it did arrive with an issue, and Philips didn’t even suggest the update, they wanted me to return the switch to Amazon - and never even offered to send me a new battery.
The mounting plate is nice altough a bit large (bigger than a regular lightswitch plate) but the small round mount doesnt secure the button efficiently.
But the real problem with this button is on the software side. Its ok if you just want a button to turn your hue lights on and off, but you cant do anything else with it.
I wanted to use it to activate a routine but it cant be setup for that... the only thing this button supports is on/off, dimming the light or activating a light scene based on time of day.
What is sad is that given the effort, they could have programmed the app to allow us to do so much more with it.
UPDATE: Philips finally put out a software update that has fixed the issue. I've been using my Smart button for two months so far on the same battery. Still, sad that I probably had to spend just as much money on batteries as I did buying the product. Bad job, Philips.
