Smart light switches are a must for people who dream of having a fully automated smart home. They offer the same functionality as smart bulbs but without the hefty price tag and without the need to replace every existing light in one’s home.
When connected to a WiFi network, smart light switches can be controlled through a mobile app whether you’re comfy in bed or on vacation in another country. In addition to convenience, you also get to monitor your electricity usage and fool home intruders while you’re away.
What to look for in smart lighting controls?
· Features – A smart switch should have an on and off switch that you can immediately control from its physical location. It should also have an LED light that indicates its connection status with your wireless network.
· Smartphone app – This should allow you to turn lights on and off from your smartphone. The best apps also allow you to turn any light into a dimmer, or even set schedules and desired lighting levels for when a light turns on.
· Installation – Installing light controls requires a basic understanding of electrical work. The entire existing unit must be changed with the smart switch and all wires to the new switch must be attached.
