Woods™ Brand Products Releases WiOn™ Smart Switches, the New Wi-Fi® Communications Enabled Controller of Home Appliances and Electronics via Smartphones.

WiOn(TM) Smart Switches

“The Woods brand is pleased to offer a line of products that can make your life easier, and offer a convenient way to be in charge of your home even when you aren’t physically there,” says Trisha Irbe, Director of Consumer Electrical Products.

Users simply download a free app to their smartphone or tablet, plug in the WiOn switch and electrical device, and then activate the switch with the app, giving them the ability to control the device from virtually anywhere.

WiOn switches are ready to use right out of the package. There’s no hub needed, no set-up fee and no monthly cost. It’s just plug and play. Users can expand their system to include up to 12 WiOn devices at a time: for example, one could make sure the coffee pot is off after leaving the house, keep lights on at home for a pet while away at work or program the fan to be on so the user arrives to a cool house.

All WiOn Smart Switches feature to-the-minute programmable timing and can be set at various times with up to 12 on/off settings per day. There are random settings to give homes an occupied appearance, something many users find helpful when away on vacation. Built-in sun tracking technology allows devices to be turned on and off in accordance with sunrise or sunset, allowing porch lights to be turned on automatically at sunset.

Using WiOn switches can save energy on computers, gaming consoles and appliances. These WiOn products include smart switches designed specifically for outdoor use, allowing users to set an automatic on/off for outdoor holiday lights and provide security when lighting entryways and garages. Two WiOn switches can even monitor energy usage with the app showing operation costs, helping users to save money and limit their energy use.

Woods™ has a long history of designing products with the homeowner in mind and now extends this legacy with a selection of Wi-Fi enabling home devices that make homeowners’ lives easier under the WiOn brand.
