If you fancy upgrading your old light switches into next generation capacitive control switches you might be interested in a new switch called the iON which allows you to do this with ease and more.
iOn switches allows you to control your electrical and electronic devices with a simple wave of your hand or via your smartphone remotely and can be hidden in the wall or under a table if desired.
“How does it work? Just like the screen on your smart phone, iOn is controlled by a capacitive proximity switching system. We just made the capacitive field bigger, increased its range and added some clever features to make it more stable.
iOn gives you cool new ways to control your environment, opens exciting design possibilities–and brings a little magic into your life. You can simply wave your hand near an iOn switch and the capacitive field reacts to turn iOn on or off.
Hold your hand inside the field to make your lights dimmer or brighter. Or use your smart phone. Imagine controlling all of your iOn switches from your iPhone or Android smart phone or even from your smart watch.”
The iONswitch project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think iONswitch is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help iONswitch become a reality.
