Panasonic’s Innovative Wireless Switch Powers Appliances Without Batteries

In the technologically advanced age, it’s quite common to own a huge array of switches to turn different devices. This can be a hassle, especially if the room in question is relatively small which makes a single smart switch a sound investment. Unfortunately, the smart switches tend to be wired or require charging on a regular basis. Thankfully, Panasonic has engineered an ingenious solution which is both wireless and doesn’t use batteries. The device has an integrated power generator which can detect motion and then instantly switch on a huge range of household electrical items including a PC, a lamp and much more. When the user moves away from the switch, the surrounding items automatically switch off.

Not only that, you should be able to configure the switch fairly quickly without the need for complicated wiring. It’s important to remember that the switch is a new concept and no details regarding pricing have been revealed just yet. However, I’m very excited by the prototype design displayed during CEATEC 2016. If you’d like to see the product in action, feel free to watch a demonstration video below:

Even though many consumers haven’t invested in smart home technology, it looks likely to revolutionise home life in the next decade.
