See SmartSwitch Lite in Action

In this short demo we show the most used features in software version 1.1.1. 

A configuration demo for version 1.4.1 follows the first video.


SmartSwitch Lite from VIOLET simplifies the setup and use of your smart home. Replacing an 86mm x 86mm square light switch, it provides convenient control of lighting and audio in one place.

Simple Scenes

The scenes screen gives you access to your most used presets. Control one room or the whole house at the touch of a button. Select up to eight of your most used scenes to show on the scenes screen.

Easy Audio Control

The audio screen gives you access to your favourite music services. A responsive interface presents the simple, quick actions you need most often. Designed for quick and easy control of the most used actions.

Standby Gestures

When the screen is in standby, a short hold toggles the lights or a double tap gets your music playing. VIOLET’s standby gestures mean you can get up and running as quickly as possible. Just setup which room you want to toggle with the hold gesture. The double tap gesture will play/pause the last selected audio zone.

Versatile Back Box Compatibility

SmartSwitch Lite works with both UK square (71mm) and EU round (68mm) back boxes.

Power & WiFi symbols

Just Needs Power & WiFi

SmartSwitch Lite just needs a live and neutral to power it (see below on how to get a neutral). Then it communicates with other devices via Wi-Fi

Cloud updates and Hue and Sonos logos

Works With Hue & Sonos

VIOLET currently works with Philips Hue Bridge for lighting and Sonos for audio, with more integrations on the way via remote update.

Example System Topology with Hue & Sonos

VIOLET communicates via your internal Wi-Fi network to other devices. Sonos players could be wired or wireless. One or more Hue Bridges are hardwired to the network. Any devices that can be paired with the Philips Hue Bridge can be controlled from VIOLET. This is not restricted to just Hue branded bulbs.

Neutral Wires

Needing a neutral wire isn’t as bad as it sounds. It doesn’t require rewiring and usually just a small wiring tweak is all you need.

VIOLET just needs power and this doesn’t need to be on or near the same power of the lights, it could be completely separate.

There are a few options depending on your scenario:


1. You have a neutral

You might already have a neutral at the switch. This is most common in mainland Europe and means you can swap over your existing switch for VIOLET with minimal effort.

2. Local power socket

You don't have a neutral at the switch but your desired SmartSwitch Lite location might back onto a cupboard with a power socket or even have a socket below it on a plasterboard wall. The easiest option might be to run a short cable to the socket within the wall and plug it into the socket.

3. Neutral wiring tweak

Even if you don't have a neutral or a nearby socket, it doesn't necessarily mean re-wiring. Simply by locating which light your switch wires to first and swapping a couple of wires at that location, you can get a neutral to your switch.

Easy On-Screen Setup

We’ve made the configuration of SmartSwitch Lite as easy as possible. No additional app, no web browser, all on-screen. This demo shows how software version 1.4.1 is configured.
