    Great solution for me

    • Written by Rachel C from Walton-on-Thames

    I have just installed Lightwave in my kitchen as I didn't want to change my light fittings and they aren't suitable for the smart bulbs I have elsewhere in the house. I would say you have to follow the instructions carefully (I did get a bit of help from my father-in-law) but I couldn't be happier with it so far. With my GU10s I can get full brightness for cooking or nice and cosy for eating and anyone can operate the switch on the wall... doesn't have to be done through HomeKit every time.

    Quick to respond home kit devices that are fairly simple to install

    • Written by Michael B from Leamington Spa

    I have now replaced 2 light switches, both 1 & 2 gang and linked them up via the hub to enable use via the lightwave app and home kit. It was all fairly straightforward to install with no issues one I'd replaced my lamps with led dimmable versions. The response is almost instantaneous, both using the switch and Siri. The only downside is the lightwave app is a bit 'clunky' and (unless I'm missing something) limited in setting automations. Overall I would recommend.

    Stylish and working faultlessly

    • Written by Benjamin R from London

    I have now purchased two of the dimmers and they are working great with Homekit. They look great and I am now waiting for the 3 gang to come out later in the year.

    Does it work with Homekit?

    • Written by Matthew B from Peterborough

    Well probably the worst piece of home automation kit I have purchased. It was easy to install and works well as a dimmer switch. But that is what I have, a dimmer switch. Adding it the the Apple Homekit is near on impossible. The Lightwave app is clunky, not intuitive. Trying to login to the web app on my MAC is impossible. I can login to the app on my iPhone X, but not in Safari. Their software is miles behind such things like Philiips Hue. Apple why are we endorsing this on your website?

    Not suitable for sale as advertised

    • Written by Barry R from Birmingham

    Many of the advertised features do not work, and Lightwave RF just fob you off, this product was launched 3 months ago yet...

    "Built-in energy monitoring helps you to track your electricity consumption and save energy and money" is nowhere to be found

    "Create timers and automations to turn lights on/off automatically at dawn and dusk or for security when you leave the house" is not an option, this product will currently not integrate with any other service so there is no way for it to know you have left the house

    "Lock the dimmers so that they automatically turn off after a few minutes to save energy" is untrue, the lock in the app only disables the physical buttons on the switch

    Google home and IFTTT integration have been promised since launch but still no sign. It has the potential to be the right choice when it is finished, but based on the progress they have made so far, that could be years away
