Switchmate automates your regular wall switches

The year of 2015 might - finally - be the year where home automation reaches the masses and improves the lives of millions of people around the world. And thanks to projects like this Switchmate, it can actually be a really plug-and-play experience within reach of anyone.

When we talk about home automation, most people will immediately think of lighting control. There are literally dozens of ways for you to do that, from smart lamps to smart wall switches, not forgetting micro-modules hidden behind your regular switchs and several others. But this Switchmate trumps all that for anyone wanting to keep their existing installation untouched.

This module simply plugs in directly over your mechanical wall switches and does the flicking for you.

The module can be controlled remotely via your smartphone (using bluetooth) and it allows you to select among different settings and schedules that take the burden off manual operation - though you can still control it with a simple touch on each wall module.

If you don't want to mess around with wiring and electrical installations, this is probably the thing you had been waiting for.
