Wired Switch Support

Does anyone know of a way to use wired smart switches with Hue? 

I don’t know of any existing way, but I think it could be done by having the off and on events for the Hue linked to the on and off of whatever service the switch used, rather than the on and off of hue itself. When you hit the off switch on the wall, the app could know that as long as the switch remains connected to that other service that the bulb is not gone, it’s just in a state where on signals should be redirected to the other service. This way you could support any smart switch on the market with just software changes.
