Is it feasible to have a light switch-free house?

Hi everyone. What do you recommend I do with my old light switches? I don’t want my Hue bulbs to be accidentally turned off by the manual light switches. Also, I’m a minimalist and most of my light switches, if not all, will eventually be redundant by the time I’ve finished installing my PH bulbs and motion sensors, as well as configuring schedules. I’m thinking of rewiring the light switches to the always-on position and simply covering them with blanking plates. Is that too extreme? Do people usually leave the original light switch on the wall and just try to avoid turning it off by mistake, or maybe replace them with Philips Hue dimmer switches? If I want to do away with all my old switches, what are the best ways to do it?

I do think it’s a little brave since you must be one of the first ones doing so. But hey, we all are gonna end up there, sooner or later. Innovators like you act first 🙂

It’s a brave new world! I think I should be okay as I’ll also have remote dimmers, so I won’t only be relying on my Android app.

I have PH Hue system, since it’s came on the market. And I have almost all places in House, replaced my switches, with a plate in design as the old switches. But on “strategic” places, I still have switches, in cases I should experience that after a total electricity fall out (in evening/Night,) where I cannot use my App, before it’s up and running, then still are able to switch on some Bulbs.

Would you ever consider replacing your strategically placed regular light switches with PH dimmer switches?

I have more of these, which I have custom made to same design, as the other switches 😉
