Adding the Tap into your Hue system is an easy, one-button process. From there, you'll be able to customize what each button does.

Each push of the button gives the Tap a little jolt of power -- which means you'll never need to change out batteries.

Philips is selling the Hue Tap for $60 (£50 in the UK). That's a bit pricier than we'd like, but we still think it's a logical addition to existing Hue setups. Be sure to read our full review for more details.
