Smart lightbulbs have quickly become a mainstay part of the average consumer home but quickly lose connectivity if the switch is turned off, so the Philips x Lutron 'Aurora' smart bulb dimmer has been designed to prevent this. The aftermarket solution works by being added onto existing switches to prevent an inhabitant from flicking them off and immediately rendering any connected illumination equipment unusable. The device works with Philips Hue Bridge setups to let users easily dim, brighten or turn off the lights without making any changes to the illumination setup.
The Philips x Lutron 'Aurora' smart bulb dimmer is available now for preorder for $40 and will start being delivered in June. The device is likely to be a must-have for Philips Hue users seeking to optimize the user experience.
