Q: What is the advantage of a wireless light switch?
A: These battery-powered switches control the new home lighting options that are controlled by radio frequency.
The advantage is that you can place the light switch anywhere in the home without the need to wire it into the electrical system, which can save a lot of time and work. Mount it to any wall surface or even hold the device in your hand. Some of the new switches can wirelessly control up to five light sources simultaneously from anywhere in the home. Once the switch is installed, it searches for installable devices and synchronizes itself with them, granting remote control capability. Using Z-wave wireless technology, the switch operates on a dedicated radio frequency so it doesn’t interfere with Wi-Fi or other wireless communications in the house.
