Remember when the idea of clapping to turn your lights on and off seemed ingenious? We’ve come a long way—now you don’t need your hands at all to light up a room. Treatlife makes a collection of light switches you can activate using just your voice—or, if you’re so inclined, your smartphone.
Today on Amazon, you can choose from five of Treatlife’s top-rated, hands-free smart light switches— which customers are calling “simple, beautiful” and “works like a charm”—and save up to 22 percent on your order.
With Treatlife products installed, you can control your lights from an app on your phone even when you’re far from home. If your hands are full of groceries—or if you’re just too lazy to get up off the couch—turn your lights on and off using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant commands. When we said smart, we meant smart!
You’ll need a neutral wire to install this five-star-rated smart light switch, which is 20 percent off for a 4-pack today. Even relative newbies can get it hooked up fast thanks to a step-by-step wire guide. “I had it installed and talking to Alexa in 15 minutes,” wrote one shopper. “The instructions were pretty clear for the wiring and the app walks you through the process to get this set up with wifi, Alexa and Google.”
Then you’re off to the races! You can program the lights to turn on and off at specific times—handy for when you’re on vacation and want to trick potential thieves into thinking you’re home. Or you can set them on a timer, tell them to turn off after you’ve sat down to watch a movie, or light up a dark house before you walk in at night with just a tap of your touchscreen.
You’ll need a neutral wire for this smart light switch too, but once it’s set up you’ll be able to control it manually from up to two locations—say, the top and bottom of a staircase or opposite ends of a long hallway. But the charm of this Treatlife light switch is its smart capabilities anyway—and this one comes with Alexa, Google Assistant and app-based compatibility, too.
You can even group them together to illuminate a whole house and control it centrally from your smartphone or via voice commands. “Easy as pie to install and use,” one fan proclaimed.
“I thought it might be a little weird talking to Alexa all the time, or every time I enter or leave a room, but I was surprised how quickly it became de rigueur,” another fan wrote. “Now I can go to bed at night and not worry about the kids leaving every light in the house on.”
Adjust your lights from zero to 100 percent with this smart dimmer—just as easy to install as all of Treatlife’s smart switches with basic wiring knowledge. The switch is even smart enough to remember the last setting, so it essentially starts to memorize your brightness preferences.
It works with remote control, Alexa, and Google Assistant and offers light levels akin to a 100 watt incandescent bulb right up to 400 watt bulb. One fan called the smart dimmer “a modern necessity,” and added, “The Smart Life App is the best I have used of smart home apps so far.”
Check out the entire Treatlife sale and treat yourself to big savings while getting one giant leap closer to a the smarthome of your dreams.
