After successfully integrating your Hue system with Lightwave and adding the wire free scene selector to the app, you can customise it to have complete control over turning the lights on and off, as well as real-time dimming.
In the settings of the wire free scene selector, you have the option to mirror the Hue light bulb/s. By setting up a wire free switch to mirror a Philips Hue bulb, you gain advanced control over the lamps. You can easily turn them on and off with a single tap of the top or bottom button, and if the lamps are already on, you can achieve real-time dimming by long-pressing the top or bottom button.
Once you have set up the Mirror function, you can take advantage of the multi-press feature to change the lamp colours. You can set up to 24 different colour options, where each press of the button sets the Hue bulbs to your desired colour. Please refer to the screen shots below for instructions on how to mirror a scene selector to a Hue light and set up the multi-press feature for colour changing.
Long press on the channel of the scene selector that you would like to use to mirror the Hue smart bulb and press SETTINGS in the top right corner– The screen shot below shows an LP54 - 4 channel scene selector. In the guide we will be using channel 1 – For illustration purposes we have named the scene selector Wire Free 1,2,3 and 4
Select Multi press which will take you to the next screen where you need to select Mirror to another device
You will be shown a list of your rooms, choose the room containing the Philips Hue bulb. Proceed to select the specific Hue bulbs you want mirrored by your wire-free scene selector, then confirm your selection by pressing 'DONE,' which is in the top right corner. You will then be navigated to the next page. Here, you will see your chosen channel displayed prominently, alongside a '1', symbolising the option to mirror an additional device.
Your wire free scene selector is now set up to turn on and off your hue lamp and long presses on the top and bottom buttons will allow you to dim the hue lights in real time.
Please note: This set up will turn on the Hue lamps to their last set colour.
