iDevices Announces New HomeKit-Compatible Dimmer Switch

iDevices, the company behind several HomeKit-enabled light switches and outlets, today announced the debut of its latest product, the Dimmer Switch. iDevices' new Dimmer Switch, like its wall switches, is an in-wall product designed to replace a traditional light switch.

The Dimmer Switch includes customizable dimming capabilities that can be controlled via the iDevices app, the Home app, or using Siri thanks to built-in HomeKit integration (for Echo users, it also has Alexa support). In-app dim range settings prevent low-level bulb flicker, and it remembers the last brightness state.


It fits into any standard rocker faceplate to integrate with an existing lighting system with no extra wiring required, and it's installed like any standard wall switch with support for single pole, 3- and 4-way setups.

Along with serving as a way to dim lights, the Dimmer Switch features a built-in LED night light that keeps it well-lit in the dark, with users able to set the night light to any color.
"The iDevices Dimmer Switch enhances our extensive line of premium smart home solutions and brings us closer to our goal of creating products that seamlessly integrate into the walls of any home," says Chris Allen, iDevices President. "With Hubbell's long history in the electrical industry, and our expertise in the IoT marketplace, we have the combined strength to continue our evolution towards flexible, 'invisible' products that fit any home, new or old. The iDevices Dimmer Switch is one of many innovations to come, forever changing the smart home as we know it."
iDevices is selling the Dimmer Switch starting today for $99.95. It can be purchased from the iDevices website.

$100?! Good luck with that. It looks like a re-branded Koogeek switch, which is a third the price on Amazon (and works great).

The internet of things is never going to happen at these prices.

Does everyone here self-install their switches, or is it a techical job for an electrician?

Also, what happens if your wifi goes down? My wifi drops connection all the time, so using these type of things seems like it'd constantly annoy me.

I'm not an electrician, but I've installed a number of new switches in my house. It's very easy. You simply disconnect the wires from the old switch and connect them to the new one. Different switches will require different configurations but it's pretty basic stuff. Oh yeah, make sure the power is off on the panel so you don't shock yourself.

If your wifi goes out you won't be able to control the switch from your devices, but you can still use the switch just like you would any other switch. Wifi doesn't make the switch nonfunctional.
