iDevices Instant Switch wireless remote wall switch

instant-switchWhen it comes to modern day homes, many of us would like to see our humble abodes be more connected and are technologically advanced than ever before. Our forefathers had to make use of charcoal stoves, while we revel in flameless induction cookers in this day and age. Back in the day, a kerosene lamp was used to light up the home before the invention of electricity, and we have the utter convenience of having light as and when we like it with the flick of the switch. You know what they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The humble switch has served humanity well for so long, but is it about to approach the end of the line? Perhaps, if iDevices has its way. iDevices is the preeminent brand in the connected home industry, and with the announcement of the availability of the Instant Switch, things are going to change around the home.

 The iDevices Instant Switch is a remote wireless wall switch which will allow users to pair up their smartphones to other iDevices products via Bluetooth connectivity for effortless smart home control. This does away with the need to cut any holes or perhaps run wires all over the place. All that the user needs to do is to place the battery-powered Instant Switch anywhere in their home, and within seconds, they would have gained flexible control of their favorite iDevices products. Do take note that the Instant Switch is not compatible with the iDevices Thermostat though.

For instance, when paired to a hard-wired iDevices Wall or Dimmer Switch, the Instant Switch will immediately create a 3- or 4-way control configuration, delivering added functionality and user experience. In addition, it is also ideal to control hard-to-reach places, enabling outdoor lighting from inside, not to mention provide additional access as and when required. Using the Instant Switch is a snap, it requires a peel-and-stick motion to the wall using the included Command Strip from 3M. There is also an integrated level that ensures perfect placement, while the pre-installed battery comes with a two-year lifespan. Expect the Instant Switch to retail for $34.95 apiece.
