Ecobee Switch+ | Price: $99.00
We’ve all faced our fair share of experiences of fumbling for a light switch as we enter a room or overstressing about whether we actually remembered to turn the lights off as we rushed out the door. But those days are no more with the Ecobee Switch+. While a smart light switch may not seem like a necessity, its various capabilities will make time at home much more enjoyable. With the Ecobee Switch+, lights can be controlled by voice command or motion sensors, but the best part is the light switch does the work for the homeowner as it will turn off the lights when the person isn’t around and will turn them on as soon as the person enters the room. Aside from being able to easily manage lighting in the home, there’s also the unique touch of having an Amazon Alexa speaker built in so your light switch can literally do it all – play music, answer your questions and so much more.
