But Switchmate is striving to disprove this myth with smart lighting that’s easy to install and simple to use. This device instantly snaps over existing toggle or rocker light switches, meaning that installation can take place in as little as one second. In addition, no WiFi signal or wiring is required. Switchmate is battery operated via Bluetooth, so you’ll just need to download the app on your phone and tap a few buttons to find your new smart lighting system.
This convenient system comes with quite a few built-in benefits. First and foremost, you’ll be able to control your lights from your phone. You’ll no longer need to get up off the couch or out of bed to turn the lights on or off.
Secondly, Switchmate can act as a timer to control your lights when you aren’t home. By turning lights on and off at set times, onlookers will believe someone is in your house at all times.
In addition, the Switchmate smart light switches can be programmed to automatically turn your lights on and off as you move between rooms. You’ll never need to come home to a dark house again.
