Smart home specialist Violet has launched a new, slimmer version of its signature SmartSwitch controller. 7mm thinner than its predecessor, the SmartSwitch Lite is a touchscreen control panel designed to replace the traditional UK or European square light switch, and offer integrated control of lighting and music systems.

The new device supports both 100-240 V AC and 12-30V DC, which means it can either replace a traditional light switch or an existing smart keypad powered by extra low voltage wire. The slimmer form factor fits a shallower electrical back box, opening up the system to a wider number of retrofits.

SmartSwitch Lite connects with Philips Hue lighting and Sonos music systems out of the box, but also supports HTTP requests, allowing it to work with services like Home Assistant and IFTTT.

Control doesn’t require the pad to be fully awake. Double tap the screen to play or pause audio, or hold it to turn the lights on and off. When more control is required, a single tap wakes the screen to display the interface for scene selection and audio adjustment.
