Smart Lamp Or Switch: How To Create Smart Environments?


Smart Lamp: Smart homes have become common in Brazil, and the products that make up these new environments have grown in the market. More and more devices allow the connection to each other and offer personalization features, security and convenience to the user. Among the most popular and useful are the devices that make up the lighting in environments: lamp and smart switch.

Smart lamp or switch?

Both devices have features that aim to make the use of lighting resources in environments more practical. The smart switch is a device directly connected to the electrical installation of the house, which makes it possible to control the activation of that light by an application.

The smart lamp, in turn, allows for more customization, as it is directly the light emitter in the environment. This allows for greater control over lighting and colors. Furthermore, installation is much more convenient and requires no tools, as the device has the traditional connection of smart lamps.

Key Features

The smart switch is more limited when it comes to control and customization. Still, it is possible to create routines to turn on the lights, save energy and take advantage of safety features. Everything can be done from anywhere, the user just has to be connected to the internet and access the application that controls the Wi-Fi switch.

The smart lamp, however, opens up a wider range of control and customization. Some models provide more than 10 million possible colors, plus warm or cool light modes, depending on the time or activity of the day. Another important factor is the fact that the lamp uses LED technology and has a much longer lifespan than traditional ones.


The smart switch requires a direct connection to the electrical installation, in order to be able to have control of the lamps turned on in that location. The smart lamp, in turn, only needs the traditional input of smart homes. Thus, your connection is more flexible than the wifi switch, as you can change your location at any time.

Both devices are controlled by the brand’s own apps, but also have connectivity with Alexa and Google Assistant. Thus, it is possible to use the resources in an even more practical way through voice commands.

Now that you know more about the differences between the two, we’ve made a list to help you choose which devices will be most useful for your routine and lifestyle, according to your smart environment.
