What are smart light switches?

A smart light switch lets you control your lights wherever you happen to be. They are little devices that connect to your WiFi network or Bluetooth and turn your lights on or off using Amazon Alexa.

With smart lighting, you can control lights based on the ambient temperature of your home or office space. The most basic of light switches aren’t a new idea, but the technology has evolved to a point where it can now be installed as part of an entire room’s design scheme. This means that instead of just controlling lights by switching them on and off, you can dim or brighten lights within a room or even make it a “smart” room.

You can now control your lighting from anywhere! Smart lighting switches use the internet to control your lights with Amazon Alexa voice commands. If you have an Amazon Echo speaker, you can also say, “Alexa, turn on the light in my bedroom.” If you have a different speaker, you can say, “turn on the lights in my house.” All you need is a smart home hub to turn on your lights. The Alexa light switch works with all kinds of lights, including bulbs, dimmers, ceiling fans, and more. It’s much easier to control lights with a light switch than to figure out the right codes on the light switch itself. 

How do smart light switches work?

A smart light switch is a Wi-Fi-connected lighting device that allows you to control it from anywhere. Most smart lights work with smartphones, tablets, and home assistant devices such as Apple HomeKit, IFTTT, Google Assistant, Alexa, and others.

What’s the difference between a smart plug and a smart switch?

Here’s the deal: smart plugs and switches aren’t the same.

A smart plug is a device used to control appliances. These plugs allow users to automate certain routines, such as turning the lights on and off throughout the day or having the oven and stove turn on and off based on the state of the house or the time of day.

Smart light switches can automate the changing of lighting in a room. These are available in many products that offer features like voice control, dimming control, and motion detection.

Do smart light switches work without WiFi?

While some smart light switches are powered by existing home WiFi networks, others require no internet access, and some can even be turned on remotely using an Amazon Echo or Google Home device. 

Now there are Bluetooth light switches for options. Connect to Bluetooth and remotely control your device on the App.
