Vimar – Wireless pushbuttons for intelligent control of Philips Hue lamps
Lighting enters a new era
The collaboration between Vimar and Philips Lighting (now Signify), world leader in the lighting sector, which was presented for the first time last March at the Light & Building Fair in Frankfurt, began to take shape.
Thanks to the agreement for which Vimar entered the Friends of Hue program (created to expand the Philips Hue ecosystem and include more options for consumers in the intelligent control of lights), the new Vimar buttons were born, based on the engine Energy Harvesting technology, guarantee full control of Philips Hue lamps.
The technological experience and design of Vimar, whose maximum expression is reflected in its range of residential series, are now linked to wireless technology for intelligent control of Philips Hue lamps.

These new buttons are available in practical kits available for the Eikon Evo series (elegant, refined and exclusive) and for the Plana series (rigorous and essential) with a design that in both cases is in accordance with the high standards of style that characterize all the Vimar offer.
They can be placed almost anywhere, even on surfaces such as glass or wood: the new Vimar Friends of Hue push buttons offer maximum freedom of assembly, as they do not require work or repaint the walls.
In addition, they do not require cable connections: the transmission of the signal is done by radio and its power is produced with the energy generated by pressing the keys. You do not even need batteries: you avoid having to replace them and eliminate them, thus taking better care of the environment. An ideal solution for renovations, change of use or decoration destination and installations subject to architectural / regulatory restrictions.
Easy to assemble, these new push buttons are perfectly interconnected with Philips products allowing intelligent management of the lighting also through the Philips application. The path that Vimar embarked on a long time ago with VIEW, with the aim of creating buildings that are increasingly connected and that allow them to live in an increasingly intelligent way, has reached another stage of technological and stylistic innovation.
