PEACHTREE CITY, GA — Power management company Eaton has introduced the latest transportable switch for residential lighting from its Wiring Devices business. The battery-operated switch is an extension to its radio frequency (RF) lighting control solutions and can control up to five lighting solutions simultaneously from anywhere in the home, offering customers convenience and cost-saving benefits.
“This switch offers unlimited flexibility in that customers can hold the device in their hand or mount it to any wall surface to dim or turn lights on and off,” said Rohit Udavant, Product Manager, Eaton’s Wiring Devices business. “The switch’s overall design is also ideal because there is no need to mount the switch where electrical wires run, saving time and money for those who want to install it, especially to remodel the lighting in a home.”
This convenient, battery-operated switch can connect wirelessly with up to five different lighting control devices, enabling the user to control them with the singular switch. Once a user initiates installation, the switch searches for installable devices and ultimately synchronizes itself with them, allowing for remote control capabilities. Using Z-wave wireless technology, the switch operates on a dedicated radio frequency ensuring that it does not interfere with Wi-Fi or other wireless communications in the house.
Available in two different attractive styles, the device also comes with two-sided fixing tape and wall anchoring capabilities.
