The premise of the iDevices Instant Switch is simple — a wireless remote wall switch you can stick pretty much anywhere and use to control another iDevices product without having to run any wires or screw any holes in your walls. 

The Instant Switch can be installed by anyone, hence its simplicity. Pair it via the iDevices Connected app, place the battery-powered Instant Switch on the wall using the included Command™ Strip from 3M, and you've created a wall switch without having to hire a pro, cut holes or deal with wiring. With iDevices flexible line of products, there are countless ways you can use Instant Switch for expanded control in any living space. 

Effortless 3- or 4-way setup

Every floor plan is unique, but we can all agree there are places in our homes where another light switch would add convenience. At the end of a long hallway, another location within the living or dining room, or at the top or bottom of a staircase, for example. By pairing the Instant Switch with the iDevices Wall Switch or Dimmer Switch, you can create 3- or 4-way functionality without the hassle of installing multiple wired switches. 

*Pro Tip - You can pair up to two Instant Switches to any single iDevices Wall Switch or Dimmer Switch. 

Outdoor with ease

Save yourself a trip outside or to the garage while you're cozied up in your pajamas by using the Instant Switch as an alternative to turn off that porch or flood light connected to your iDevices Wall Switch. You can even control holiday and patio lights plugged into the iDevices Outdoor Switch. 

Don't reach!

Any electronic device plugged into the iDevices Wall Outlet — such as a lamp in an awkward spot in your living room — can be controlled with the Instant Switch. The same goes for any light equipped with the iDevices Socket, which can be dimmed with the Instant Switch. That means no more leaning over napping family members on holidays to turn on or dim that hard-to-reach lamp! 

*Pro Tip - You can pair up to two Instant Switches to the iDevices Wall Outlet - one Instant Switch per outlet receptacle. 

Like it was always there

Designed to complement your home's decor, the Instant Switch fits into any standard faceplate. It can be installed standalone, next to any existing switches, and even fits within a gang box. The Instant Switch also comes with a custom faceplate. It's all about preference. 

Who doesn't like options?

The Instant Switch is just one more reason why iDevices is your solution for a truly smart home. Our products are compatible with Apple HomeKit™, Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. They work with iOS and Android devices and can be controlled from anywhere via the iDevices Connected app. The Instant Switch doesn't replace these options, but complements them and acts as a companion switch that provides added comfort, convenience and security to any home.
