Sint-Niklaas 02/04/2018 - Niko, the Belgian number one in switching material and Smart Home, is taking a further step in its partnership with pioneering Smart Home brands and ecosystems. As one of the first launch partners in the ‘Friends of Hue’ switches program from Philips Lighting, Niko is introducing its wireless switches at Light + Building 2018, allowing effortless control of smart lighting from Philips Hue.

Niko design supports Philips Hue ecosystem

Thanks to Niko switches, you can now not only switch the smart lighting from Philips Hue on and off. With a simple push of the button, you can also recall pre-programmed moods or dim your smart lamps. The new wireless dimmer switch will be available in two finishes: Niko Intense white and Niko Intense anthracite. The Niko dimmer switches for the Philips Hue blend beautifully into every interior.

Effortless installation

As Friend of Hue, Niko has designed a smart switch that is fully compatible with all Philips Hue solutions. Thanks to the wireless control, this switch can be added to an existing installation without the need for any drilling or channelling, plus there's no need to miss out on any functionality.

High-quality partnerships

Niko is the first Belgian company to have developed a wireless switch to control the smart solutions from Philips Hue so effortlessly. With this partnership, Niko is supporting one of the most important Smart Lighting ecosystems.

Just like Niko's collaboration with strong brands such as Reynaers, Renson and Bose, this partnership with Philips Lighting is founded on a quality guarantee. Niko goes in search of pioneering partners to co-develop smart solutions that simplify our daily lives. Furthermore, Niko is open to new technologies and open ecosystems. In this way, its solutions remain entirely future proof and Niko becomes the ultimate platform to control all pioneering ecosystems.

The new wireless dimmer switch is available as from the fourth quarter of 2018 in various DIY stores.
