Paint your home with ambience this autumn

Friday, 15 October 2021

As chillier conditions begin to render the outside world increasingly unpalatable, it’s time once more to think about how to make our domestic space as comfortable as possible. But we’re not just talking armchairs. We’re talking mood lighting, and the manifold illuminative options presented by the Philips Hue lightbulb. 

Unlocking an array of ambiences, this industry-leading light bulb allows users to set the perfect tone for their home. With 16 million colours to choose from, homeowners will be able to select the perfect shade to suit their mood. So whether you’re feeling blue, or fifty shades of gray, you’ll never be lamenting the lack of colour options to accompany your daily, and nightly, activities. 


But that’s not all. 


By combining your Philips light bulb with Retrotouch’s smart switch, you can unlock an extra layer of functionality to bring the utmost ease and convenience to your lifestyle. Here’s how. 


By teaming up with Philips, and becoming part of their ‘friends of hue’ fraternity, we’re delighted to be recognised as an official provider of integrated lighting solutions, allowing customers to get the most out of their products. 


Our wireless, battery-free switches can control up to 50 Philips Hue lights and lamps simultaneously, and can be placed anywhere in the home. The switch connects directly to the Philips Hue Bridge using EnOcean technology, and you won’t need to purchase an additional Smart Home Hub to get it working. As soon as your switch is installed, the two devices will begin talking to each other just like they’re old friends. 

We realise that future-minded homeowners want to achieve a modern look with their fixtures and fittings, which is why we’ve maintained our commitment to providing stylish, minimalistic aesthetics, alongside the smart technology they offer. The switches come in white or black glass, with or without a chrome trim, and house one or two buttons. 


If you’re an existing Retrotouch customer, and already have our products shining throughout your home, then you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve coordinated our latest switches to match our other ranges, so you can get that consistent look to your decor. 


With the winter months fast approaching, it’s time to ready your home for the cosy domestic months ahead. It’s time to achieve that interior ambience you’ve always been wanting.
