Smart up your home with iotty switches

Monday, 17 August 2020  |  Amit

How smart is your home?

You may have eye-catching decor and exciting gadgets, but a truly modern household is a smart one. The capability of your home to intuit what you need, and when you need it, is part of a new wave of integrations to make your life easier and more hassle-free. 

Just like Retrotouch’s iotty switches, which, by connecting to your home’s Wi-Fi, make possible an exciting array of applications. When hooked up to your Retrotouch smartphone app, it is possible to synchronise your household power usage with your lifestyle. By using realtime geolocation technology, for example, you can ensure the lights are on only when you’re around. Simpler, and more energy efficient. But it doesn’t just end there. 


By integrating smart technology with your switches, you open up a world of voice activated applications, such as Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant. In just a few simple steps, you can set up a voice command to turn off all the lights around the house. Not only does this get rid of that tiresome nighttime routine of walking around manually turning off all your switches, then bustling around in the dark. It also saves time and energy, which can be better spent on other things. 


And it’s not just lightswitches. Imagine a home where every electrical application could be controlled through your voice, and through geolocation technology. 

Imagine driving home from work and having your garage door open on arrival. You park your car, with the garage lights illuminating the way. As you enter the home, electric blinds and shutters automatically open, letting fresh air in. You then make your way into the lounge, where the lights are perfectly dimmed, just the way you like it. 


All this is possible when using a combination of Retrotouch’s iotty Wi-Fi switches. And the best thing about it, is that anyone can achieve these results with minimal effort. 


Installing these switches is easy, and the process can be seen in this 6-step installation guide. Our product page also contains a wealth of information about setup, and how to achieve spectacular results around your home.
