There are two ways to connect a Hue smart button to your system: with a Hue Bridge or with Bluetooth.
How to set up a Hue smart button
Connect with a Hue Bridge
With a Hue Bridge, you can fully customize your Hue smart button — and setup is simple.
Before you start setup
Is your Hue Bridge connected and added to the Hue app?
Your Hue Bridge should already be plugged in, connected to Wi-Fi, and added to your Hue app. If you haven’t done that yet, first install your Hue Bridge.
Set up a Hue smart button with a Hue Bridge
- Press and hold the smart button for three seconds to activate the device.
- Open the Hue app.
- Go to the Settings tab and tap Accessories.
4. Tap Add accessory.
5. Tap Hue smart button.
6. Once the Hue app has found the smart button, follow the on-screen instructions. You will be able to select which Room or Zone the smart button controls, as well as what it does.
