    I have the original Hue bulbs and they can not be dimmed with a wall dimmer switch. When they are dimmed they just go out. the dimmer has to be set to the max position. They have to be controlled by the app or they can be turned on and off to the default white light if the wall switch is cycled.

  • You should not use the Hue bulbs with a dimmer switch. Even if it works with the dimmer at full, you may hear annoying buzzing sounds. If you hear a buzz, try moving the bulb to a non-dimmer circuit to compare.

  • You can use them on a switch with a dimmer, but you need to have it cranked up to the brightest setting for them to work. If you try to dim them at all, they will turn off completely.
