How Smart Light Switches Can Help the Environment

The effects of energy consumption on the environment are a concern for our planet, so you can do your bit by making changes to the lighting and electrical appliances in your home.

There are plenty of ways to reduce your overall energy consumption, and our SmartSwitch Lite is just one. It’s a smart home control panel that combines your lighting and audio control in one single place. By implementing a smart light system in your home, you can begin to reduce your electricity consumption and save money. 

In this blog, we’ll discuss how a smart light switch can help you create an eco-friendly home, as this is a concern for many people. 

Changing Habits Around your Home 

By integrating your smart home technology with other devices and apps, you can gain control over your lighting and sound with just a few quick taps. Not only is this convenient, but it can save you time too!

When you change the habits around lighting in your home, you can begin to reduce your energy consumption. This includes using a dimmed setting, switching off lights when you’re not using them and installing eco-friendly LED bulbs, such as Philips Hue bulbs.

With SmartSwitch, you can program your lights to match your daily routine so that you are being the most energy-efficient you can. You can choose the most convenient place for your touchscreen light switch, making it easy to trigger different lighting scenes, turn lights on/off and toggle audio.

Safety and Efficiency 

Our SmartSwitch Lite not only gives your home extra safety with no messy wires, but the set-up is simple, meaning you don’t have to worry about fiddling with electric wires or plugs too much. As mentioned above, you can integrate your lighting to match your routine, which can save you up to 20% of energy and give you peace of mind that the electricity is switched off when you go on holiday, for example.

Smart homes are efficient so, if you’re looking to create a smart home, then a boring light switch won’t do. A smart lighting control panel, on the other hand, comes with many features that will make you feel like you’re living in the future with the simplicity of today.

Your smart light switch will also make you more productive, since it allows you to change the colour temperature of the lights to fit your mood and time of day or night, allows you to create zen-like areas in the home, and so much more.

Energy Saver 

Whether your aim is to cut down the bills at the end of the month or become eco-friendlier (or both), VIOLET’s smart wall light switch has got you covered. The dimming control feature can function as a smart light system and is perfect for saving electricity and setting the mood in your home. The same is true for other features, like ‘Read’.

And, with a touch of the control panel, you can also easily turn the lights on and off and choose the music you want to play. You’ll be singing or dancing to your favourite tunes in no time, and without the need to have your phone playing music.

In addition, the SmartSwitch can support a single bridge which is up to 50 bulbs on the same panel. The set-up is a simple WiFi connection process, so you don’t have to worry about overcomplicated technical instructions and features.

Programming and Switch Settings 

VIOLET’s SmartSwitch is an efficient way to control the lighting in your home, but it’s not the only benefit you get with this smart wall switch. As mentioned, you can also fill the room with your favourite podcasts, playlists and albums in just a few seconds directly from your smart home control panel. You don’t have to worry about adjusting settings on your speaker or radio. Our automation control panel is easy to use for the whole family — without a phone, app or training.
