Switches & Receptacles
News Flash: Old switches and receptacles are outdated. They can’t keep up with the demands of modern life, such as powering high-tech devices and connecting to your home automation hub.
Newer switches and receptacles are equipped with the latest technology, including WiFi, USB ports, and smart home capabilities. WiFi-enabled switches and receptacles can be controlled remotely with a smartphone or tablet. This is great for turning lights on and off when you’re not home, setting schedules for lights to turn on and off automatically, or controlling other features of your house.
USB-port equipped switches and receptacles can be used to charge devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. This is great for keeping your devices charged without having to search for a wall adapter.
Smart home switches and receptacles can be connected to a smart home hub, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. This allows you to control your lights, appliances, and other devices with your voice.
If you’re looking to upgrade your home’s electrical system, consider replacing your old switches and receptacles with newer models. You’ll be glad you did. See Home Automation (link) for details on how a completely automated house can operate.
