Smart home solutions company Violet has announced the SmartSwitch Lite, a new touchscreen light switch offering convenient Philips Hue and Sonos control.The size of a standard UK light switch, the platform frees users from app control, and offers a simplified way for families to manage their lighting and sound systems.

“The light switch location as a control point is completely ingrained in us socially, so it makes sense that we smarten it up a bit” explains CEO Ryan Ovens. “Using your phone for basic adjustments as you move around your home is just simply inconvenient: finding it, unlocking it; finding the app. Sure there’s voice control, but it’s not a silver bullet and there are many situations it is not suitable. With SmartSwitch, all the family members and visitors can intuitively control what they need to from the location they are used to with just a touch or two.”
