I’m looking for a simple yet elegant color controller so that guests can control Hue color bulbs on their own. Typical applications would be guest bedroom, bathroom and powder room. Any ideas on how I might achieve this? The following hubs are available for integration: Lutron Caseta, Philips Hue & Smarthings. Also, Homekit integration is an option.
As for what it should look like or how it would operate I am pretty flexible overall but don’t want it to look cheap or tacky.
It could be abstract like a Philips Hue Tap. I like the Tap but the feel of the button presses isn’t great and the Philips branding ruins it.
It could be a series of colored buttons (maybe 4 or 6 buttons) which would limit the color choices but that’s ok. Perhaps something like the Logitech Pop. I have not used the Pop but reviews seem to suggest it’s unreliable. Also I don’t care for the branding on this one either and the color choices seem limited.
It could be a full range color picker like what is in the Hue App but it needs to be a standalone piece of hardware.
It can be either wall mounted or simply sit on a table or shelf.
Simply put, what I’m looking for is a piece of hardware that will integrate with Hue bulbs to allow a guest to change colors by selecting from a fixed set of options (scenes) or a full range color picker - one or the other, not both. Anything like this out there? Any DIY solution?
