Ultimate Smart Home: Legrand Smart Light Switches

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

Welcome back to another episode of ultimate smart home and in today's episode we're gonna be talking about smart light switches because they're probably one of the most cost effective ways to get full lighting control over your entire home so if you're just

Starting to build a smart home now one of the first things that I recommend you do they start with lighting first because it's one of those things that really does change your life it's very simple but having full control no matter

Where you are in the world and automations with the everyday life it really does make a difference so I've teamed up with LeGrande today to show you their new radiant collection their new smart switch lineup I've been using

These for about a month now so I have a good idea of how they work and how they fit into my home so let me go ahead and share my one-month experience with you before we get started let me give you my perspective on why I think that smart

Switches are a good deal because if you're looking at this big open space here with the kitchen and surrounding areas I'm looking at about 11 bulbs to get full smart home control here so with smart bulbs you can be generous and say

That they're $30 apiece they can be less they can be more that's over $300 to get full control where you can buy two or three of these light switches and pretty much get the same control besides the color temperature changes here and there

But you can still get full automation with Google and Amazon Alexa you can control them from anywhere in the world you can put them into routines so for a lot of people this is gonna be the way to go there are ton of lagron products

To choose from and to fit your needs but let's start with the light switches first they are available in a single pole and 3-way configurations they also come in three different colors to complement that modern home look white

Almond or light nickel but I went with the white because I think that it matches my space best the install is easy you can definitely do this yourself or you can get professional installation if you like once you have it installed

Just go ahead and download the lagron smart lights app for iOS or Android you can already see I have a bunch of switches already connected but I'll show you exactly how easy it is to add one so there's a QR code right here on the back

Plate so you'll never lose it which is really smart all you have to do is scan it and it just basically takes you step-by-step to get it on the Wi-Fi network it's that simple I love the square in modern design it

Looks really there's no reason why a smart switch should be ugly and this is definitely not that so I like that it just is incognito it looks just like a regular switch I really appreciate that and one

Of the coolest features is that this is a screw plate so you can just pop it right off the wall pop it right back on when you need to and it functions just like a regular light switch so it doesn't affect your daily usage at all

It's exactly what you're used to but you get some more functionality as well so that's a win there's a simple single LED light at the top to show you if it's connected or if there's any kind of connection problems and the one thing I

Had to get used to when I first install these switches are there are some sounds and more tactility than you would expect from a normal rocker switch but I've grown to love this and that sound you will still hear it when you use the app

Or do voice actions do you hear that this is too much fun I've also been using lagron smart dimmer switches I think these are great for something like the kitchen because for me I have two pendant lights back there and these are

On an LED step system so you can keep hitting them as slow as you want to get them to dim or you can just hold it down and you can dim as fast as you want to so I think these work great in the kitchen everything is tied in with the

LaGrant lights app for iOS or Android this is where all the magic happens and right here is your favorite devices column this is the first thing that shows up so anything that you want to control right away or get quick access

To that's where I would put them the second tab is all of your devices that you have and all you need to do is hit that star right here if you want to add them to your favorites tab and if there is a dimmer component you can do that

Right here from the app which is nice and all you have to do to control one of these things is just hit this icon here and that turns them on and off very simple you can group your lights like I did with the kitchen as you saw earlier

And if you want to create a scene I don't have any yet but I can add one so if I want my porch lights both of them to come on at a certain time now that I have a scene all I can do is hit that calendar here I can select which days

That this happen then they turn on and off at a specific time or sunrise or sunset which is cool so you have nice control here right in the app having this type of control from anywhere in the world is an amazing

Thing and it's also a great idea to set schedules while you're on vacation so you can mimic how your lights turn on and off while you're away and it's also a great thing to be able to tie all this

In with Google home or Amazon Alexa to get voice control over your home so it's as easy as this Alexa turn off kitchen lights and it's also great to put all this in a routine as well so you can say good night good morning there's a lot of

Possibilities here if you don't want to deal with the installation process or maybe you're renting and you can't install and you want some simple lighting control then lagron also makes some smart plugs and I really like these

Because the industrial design of the radiant collection definitely moves over to here as well it's one of these smart plugs that I actually like the way it looks in the wall it's also very simple there's just a button here that you can

Push to turn on and off it connects exactly the same way as a life switches with the QR code it shows up in the app you can put them into automations and routines in the favourites everything is pretty much the same here so these are

Perfect for lamps or Christmas trees that type of stuff so if you're looking for a smart plug this is really great there's the second one that kicks it up a notch it has two buttons instead of one and that's because it gives you

Dimming capabilities of your lamp or light that's connected to it so if you want that dimming capability also in a smart plug this is the one there gonna be some more smart home products coming from lagron in the future so I can't

Wait to test them especially when it comes to outdoor lighting so I'll leave a link down to the radiant collection down below and what's available so check those out and see which one fits you best

I think light switches are an essential part of building a smart home so I love the fact that lagron design language from their high-end kitchen stuff and their home stuff has moved right over to their smart home lineup so I'm impressed

With the radiant collection so go and check that out so let me know if you're on Team light switch or if you're on team smart bulb which one that you're gonna go with and I'm gonna do one last tour of this place because believe it or

Not I'm gonna be moving out of this space and I'm gonna be moving into a new one so may even get to full smart home tours in one year that's gonna be really big for me so make sure you subscribe for that
