iDevices Launches HomeKit-Compatible Wireless ‚Instant Switch‘
iDevices today announced the launch of the latest product in its smart home lineup, the iDevices Instant Switch. The Instant Switch is a simple wireless wall switch that’s designed to attach to a surface using adhesive, so there’s no tricky installation required.
The Instant Switch, which was first announced at CES 2017, is designed to work with existing iDevices HomeKit products using a Bluetooth connection, providing an additional method of control. According to iDevices, the Instant Switch can be paired to a hard-wired iDevices Wall or Dimmer Switch to create a three or four-way control configuration, for example.
You can attach the Instant Switch to a wall or another surface using a 3M Command Strip, and it can be placed anywhere in the home. iDevices recommends using it in hard-to-reach locations, because no drilling or rewiring is required. A built-in user-replaceable battery is included, so power isn’t needed.
If you don’t want to use adhesive, the Instant Switch can also be fitted to any standard rocker faceplate because it’s been designed to mimic a permanently installed light switch.
The new iDevices Instant Switch can be purchased from the iDevices website or Amazon.com for $34.95 starting today.
