Smart light switches

Con­trol the light­ing in your home with a smart switch

T3 - - Smart Home Surgery -

Clum­sily reach­ing for an app on your phone can be, depend­ing on the tight­ness of your jeans, a pretty stupid way to tweak your lights. So go old-school with your newschool bulbs and use a smart switch. Philips does a pair for Hue (the £18 Wire­less Dim­mer and the £50 Smart Tap Switch, philips.co.uk), or you can go broader and use a Flic (from

£30, flic.io) or Log­itech Pop (around £80, log­itech.com) to con­trol lights from var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers and other de­vices too. Al­ter­na­tively, go the other way: if you don’t have smart bulbs, wiring in the Light­wave RF Switch (from £60, plus the con­troller, light­wavef.com) adds Wi-Fi smarts to any old dumb lights.
