Are you using smart bulbs in your ceiling but want to be able to still use your existing wall switch to turn them on and off? Then the Smartwares Wall switch converter is the right product for you. This built-in switch converts your traditional wall switch to a wireless switch, meaning your smart lights won’t lose power when the wall switch is used and you can switch your lights manually and wirelessly.
The installation can be done by yourself in a couple minutes by simply connecting the wires your wall contact to the included terminal block and the wall switch converter to your traditional wall switch. The wall switch converter works via the included CR2450 battery which lasts for 8 years, so you don’t have to worry about replacing the battery.
Make your existing switch smart
To summarize the functionality; the Wall switch converter makes sure that even when someone switches your smart ceiling lights using your traditional wall switch, your smart lights will still be operable via the HomeWizard Link app. If you have set timers or use geo-fencing to switch your lights via location awareness, you will never have to worry that some of your lights are unavailable because the power has been turned off via the traditional wall switch. This product is ideal if you have visitors or family members who are not too familiar with smart bulbs and prefer to use the existing wall switch.
When connected to your traditional wall switch, the Wall switch converter has a number of additional functionalities. For example, you can add light scenes which you’ve created in the HomeWizard Link app to the converter. The traditional wall switch now serves as a button to activate certain scenes in your house. This way you can switch once for scene 1 and twice for scene 2. The wall switch converter can be personalized to your preference and different switch patterns can activate scenes or presets based on how you would like to use it.
Also works with Philips HUE
The Wall switch converter is also a great solution for using your Philips HUE lights. After adding the Hue Bridge to the Link Gateway via the HomeWizard Link app, you can control your Hue lights with your smartphone as well as with the traditional wall switch. Note: You need the Smartwares Link gateway to connect your Hue lights to the wall switch converter. Don’t you own a Link yet?
