While branded specifically for Philips Hue, Lutron’s brilliant Aurora Smart Bulb Dimmer Switch may be the perfect solution for the long-time battle between smart bulbs and light switches. No more will you need to worry about an accidentally flipped switch foiling your efforts to brighten a space with smart bulbs. The Aurora makes that light switch useful again, harnessing it as a base for what works like and appears to be a traditional dimmer knob…that controls your smart bulbs! This works with any standard toggle switch.
Lutron promotes Aurora dimmer as a solution for Philips Hue, but it can also be used as a dimmer for other Zigbee Light Link and Zigbee 3.0 devices.
Richard has reviewed the Aurora dimmer and has only one complaint—that it’s not available in other popular colors like Light Almond and Ivory.
