As iconic as The Clapper is, controlling your light switches with a rudimentary “clap on, clap off” is so 1985.
It is now 2018 — that’s basically the future — and your home’s lighting situation should be as smart as your phone and capable of saving you a few bucks on your electric bill. Enter: the Meross Smart Wi-Fi Wall Light Switch.
The easy-to-install Meross features voice-control technology that’s compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT (Samsung SmartThings and NEST integration are coming soon), meaning you can control your lights with a single word.
You don’t always have to be inside your home to control its lighting, though. With the Meross companion app, you can schedule your lights to switch automatically or remotely, saving you power when you accidentally dash out the door without turning them off. Not only that, but the Meross even supports a sunrise and sunset setting that makes it seem like you’re home even when you’re not — a home safety must.
For a limited time, Mashable readers can snag a pair of Meross Light Switches for only $39.99 — a savings of 13% off the original price of $45.99.
