Question Help Integrating Existing LEDs and New Smart Lighting


Novice Member
I currently have 2 banks of Ansell dimmable LED lights in my through-lounge. They are operated with a Varilight 2 gang dimmer switch.

I'm also having a single-storey extension built that comprises of a family area and kitchen. The kitchen has a kitchen island and the thinking is to put an LED strip on the dropped ceiling above it.

I would like to convert the entire ground floor to smart-lighting but ideally, I don't want to replace the LED lights in the through-lounge. I was thinking of replacing the Varilight 2 gang dimmer switch with a LightwaveRF 2 gang switch, and installing a Philips Hue system in the extension.

Is this a good way to go or can anyone suggest a better solution?

Not sure if this matters, but I have a Sonos system with Alexa and Google Assistant integration, and the family but the family are all iPhone users.
