Parrot Switch Plate Plays Voice Memos When You Turn The Lights On

By Chris Scott Barr

If you have trouble with communication in your family, sometimes you have to get creative. Sure, in this age of cell phones and text messaging, it’s easy to send someone a reminder. However, Making sure they are told something at the right time is an important factor. Lets say you want someone to get your message as soon as they walk into the house. This Parrot Digital Messaging Switch Plate can help with that very thing.

The device is simple enough, allowing you to record a 20-second message which will be played back when the switch is turned on. I can see this as something parents might use to remind their children of chores when they get home from school. It’s only $9.99 and installs in the same manner as any other switch plate (it gets power from 4x AAA batteries).

    Great another device for my gf to use to nag me with when she isnt around.

    Yes, but what do they do when you switch the light off?

    I wonder if you can customize it more. I mean, if they turn off the light and someone turns it back on does it play again. What if you want it to stop playing… is there a button. Like Jimmy comes home and flips the switch. His girlfriend and him take off their shoes only to hear mom tell Jimmy his itch cream is in or something else embarrassing.

    This assumes that the kid would turn the light on. I can imagine some people would sit in the dark, “I'm watching tv”, or “I was trying to conserve power, I'm an eco-kid”. Also, with all of the power that goes through a switch anyway, why not just siphon off of that instead of making everyone waste AAA batteries?
