Today at CES 2018, iDevices has unveiled its new Instinct Wall Switch with Alexa. Designed to control lights first and foremost, this new smart home device can also manage compatible products such as Philipe Hue and others supported by Amazon’s Voice Assistant. This particular light switch is unique because it not only has Alexa-compatibility, but it also allows users to leverage the platform thanks to a built-in speaker and microphone.

Instinct looks unlike any other smart home switches that we’ve seen on the market, with a unique five button design. The center toggle allows users to adjust lighting as needed, while three buttons across the bottom call up a variety of tasks, including Alexa. The center button has an illuminated light like the top of an Echo to denote when the voice assistant is active.

“The iDevices Instinct is a breakthrough in the smart home industry. It represents the next evolution in our extensive line of premium connected solutions,” said Chris Allen, president of iDevices. “The Instinct is one of many innovations to come from iDevices, forever changing the home as we know it.”

iDevices’ latest creation is compatible with its entire lineup of products and can also be controller with Siri, Google Assistant and other popular devices. Instinct is slated for release later this year with a yet-to-be-announced price tag.

LAS VEGAS – Jan. 7, 2018 – iDevices, the preeminent brand in the connected home industry, is integrating voice service capabilities directly into the walls of any room. When a standard light switch is replaced with the Instinct, users gain the functionality of a smart light switch, standalone voice assistant, ambient light sensor and motion detector — all in one product.

“The iDevices Instinct is a breakthrough in the smart home industry. It represents the next evolution in our extensive line of premium connected solutions,” said Chris Allen, president of iDevices. “The Instinct is one of many innovations to come from iDevices, forever changing the home as we know it.”

With the Instinct, users can not only manage connected products, but also listen to music, find a new recipe and get the news with premium sound by Soen® Audio. Motion and light sensors allow users to automate lights and receive custom alerts, providing energy savings and peace of mind.

The Instinct works in concert with iDevices’ extensive line of smart home solutions and other Alexa-enabled products like the Amazon Echo. The Instinct’s lighting functions can also be controlled with the iDevices Connected app, Siri® and the Google Assistant. With over-the-air updates, the Instinct is futureproof, meaning users will always have the latest technology installed throughout their home.

The intentionally traditional design of the Instinct fits into the décor of any room, and its  voice-activated LED ring lights up to reveal its hidden intelligence. As with all iDevices products, the Instinct is hub-free and compatible with iOS and Android.

The iDevices Instinct will be available in 2018.
