How to choose a good touch switch
To choose a convenient and suitable switch, you need to determine the functionality of the device. This will allow you not to overpay for unnecessary options.
When choosing a model, the following criteria are taken into account:
- Principle of operation. Capacitive type switches respond to touch. They are installed instead of standard switches and the light is controlled by light touches of the touch panel. The way the switches equipped with an infrared sensor work is based on the recognition of the warm radiation of the body in the electromagnetic field, so they work without contact.
- Number of lines. When choosing a touch switch for your home, consider how many appliances will be connected to one switch. This is necessary so that the model matches the minimum and maximum voltage parameters (the parameters are indicated on the packaging or in the description).
- The presence of a timer. Timer switches are suitable for most lighting fixtures and help save energy. The built-in timer turns the lighting on and off at the specified time.
- WiFi support. Smart touch switches are compatible with the smart home ecosystem.
Using remote-controlled switches is convenient for adjusting the light of a multi-level stretch ceiling, LED strip and sconces.
When choosing a switch, pay attention to manufactureron which the quality of the product directly depends. Study the reviews of people who have already bought this product in order to better understand the quality of the selected model.
