The humble lightswitch has got a whole lot smarter

Thursday, 5 September 2019  |  Amit

Imagine having a lightswitch you could activate from anywhere in the world. Or one you could schedule to turn on at specific times of the day. By linking your smartphone to your lightswitch, our iotty Wi-fi smart switches have made your lighting setup fully customisable.


And here’s how it works.


Our smart light switches have Wi-Fi enabled within the mechanism itself, allowing you to link the switch to your smartphone. In just a few simple steps, you’ll be able to control your lighting from the palm of your hand.

As you can see from the above diagram, you’re not just limited to a single switch. An entire series of switches can be connected, with all programmable directly from the one smartphone device. So whether you’re lighting the one room, or your entire house, these switches can all enjoy the amazing features that the iotty app provides.


And here are those features in full:


  • Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings and Apple HomeKit compatibility, giving you the power to control your home lighting through your phone and with your voice.


  • Illuminate your arrival using state of the art geolocation technology, meaning your lighting will turn on/off when you enter or exit your room.


  • A full ‘welcome home’ treatment when the iotty app is used in conjunction with an automatic garage door/gate shutter.


  • The option to schedule lights turning on or off depending on specific time periods.


  • The potential to turn on/off your lights from anywhere in the world, which is particularly useful for security purposes when away from home.


  • A clear dashboard monitoring lighting usage, helping you to moderate power consumption.


These switches are easy to install, and within minutes the user can experience the awesome benefits of our smart light switch technology. Our designers really are a bunch of bright sparks.
