Create a toggle button for your smart switch

This is an example of an automation in Hue Essentials. This automation will toggle on/off a group of lights when a switch button is pressed. It can be customised further to your liking.

  1. Open Hue Essentials
  2. Go to the Devices tab
  3. Select your smart switch
  4. Select the button you want to create this automation for
  5. Tap the + button under the Automation header
  6. Tap the Add action button and select Toggle group
  7. Select a room/group and make sure the state is set to Toggle
  8. Save the automation

Instead of toggling a group, you could instead toggle an individual light, or toggle a scene

It would be great if you also could toggle automations on or off!
