Wireless Light Switch

A new and improved, at least for some consumers, way of turning on your lights does not involve any wires. A wireless light switch allows you to install lighting in many areas without the worries, hassles and frustrations of connecting a multitude of wires. This is an excellent product for those who simply want to add a few lights in areas where wiring could be a problem. It is also a good product for those who want to do a bit of redecorating without actually having to hire an electrician to add lighting to different rooms.

The wireless light switch acts much like a remote controlled lighting fixture. You simply install the wireless switch to an overhead light and when you flip the switch, radio frequencies are transmitted just as they are in remote controls for televisions and other appliances. The advantage of this light switch versus a remote controlled device however, is that you do not have to constantly keep changing your batteries in order for the lighting to work. When you flip a switch in the wireless light switch, a small charge is produced by a miniscule generator. This charge is what actually powers the small control and sends out the signal that is received by your light fixture. Each time you flip the switch, the signal is generated and the light is turned off and on. This power comes from just flipping the switch. There is no need for batteries to power the wireless switch, which is a major advantage over other fixtures and appliances.

The biggest advantage to the wireless light switch and the one that offers the largest savings is in the reduction of copper wiring, screws and the actual labor that is typically involved in installing lighting. There are no worries about gaping holes in your walls and with the price of copper being at an all time high, you can save a significant amount of money having wireless lighting technology in your home as opposed to traditional lighting methods.

The wireless switches are actually not intended to completely replace traditional wall switches, although it would be an excellent idea in many homes that are opting to turn green and contribute to the overall environment. These switches and fixtures are instead designed for areas where traditional wall switches are much more difficult to install. If you simply want to add a light switch in a room or on a wall that does not already contain a switch, wireless switches are an excellent idea. Older homes, traditionally farm houses from several decades past, do not have traditional wall switches. Instead, you must pull a string from the light fixture itself in order to turn on the lights. Wireless light switches can be installed in homes such as these for a very minimal amount of money and make turning lights on and off much easier, particularly for smaller children, elderly people and those who are disabled and simply cannot reach pull strings for lighting.

If you have considered wireless lighting, these fixtures and switches make much more sense than those using remote controls. If for no other reason, they cut down on the amount of batteries that you must buy and those that must eventually be disposed of. Having a wireless light switch installed in one or more rooms in your home can help you to enjoy more lighting without the cost and frustrations of traditionally installed light fixtures and switches. For those going green, these switches are an excellent choice. They use no more electrical power than traditional light switches and with the lack of batteries, contribute much more to the overall environment than switches controlled by remote controls.
