You can still keep your old “dumb” switch. Just place the Switchmate Smart Light Switch on top of it and you can already control it on your smartphone. It uses magnetic forces to attach and is ready to use. You can also replace your “dumb” switch with Wi-Fi switches from WeMo and TP-Link if you like.
As for making your lights smart, use the smart sockets from Emberlight, iDevices, and LampChamp. Just plug in your “dumb” incandescent, CFL or LED bulbs into these sockets and viola, you got yourself an instant automated lighting system.
Smart plugs are smart home staples that turn almost all your electronic devices smart! Just plug in your lamp, TV, hair iron (which you always forget to turn off before you go) or any other devices and schedule their switching times on your smartphone.
Sounds easy, right? Converting your home into a smart one is not that complicated. Don’t be too overwhelmed. Join the smart home revolution easily with our suggested devices above.
