Smart lights can be as simple as installing a light bulb. For those looking to enhance the experience, a full set of switches, voice controls, and connections to other smart home devices can really change a room. This is the experience we had while reviewing the Blitzwolf BW-SS1 smart switch controller, a system that you can control in several ways with your voice or apps and integrates with other best smart home systems and devices, making your home smarter.
Design and Installation
In terms of appearance, Blitzwolf fits perfectly into the Smart Switch sweet spot. The switch, available in white, looks sophisticated enough but is still low-key enough to blend in with most home decor.
Switching is difficult as long as it is convenient for you to turn off the power from the circuit breaker. All you need is a screwdriver and a few minutes to replace it. Just connect all three wires – line, load, ground – snap the switch in place, click the base plate on it, and turn the circuit breaker back on.
From there, you’ll need to connect the Blitzwolf Bridge to your router with an Ethernet cable and connect using the Blitzwolf app on your Android or iOS device. You will then pair each bridge switch in turn by holding down the button while the app prompts you to. If you’re just talking about a two-switch starter kit, getting up and running should only take about 30 minutes, if not less.
Smart Home Integrations
Blitzwolf integrates well with other smart home devices. We mentioned it works with Nest and Honeywell smart thermostats. The system is also compatible with Apple HomeKit, ecobee3 Smart Si Thermostat, Carrier Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat, Sonos sound systems. Awning Serena, any ceiling fan with support for Apple HomeKit from Hunter Fan Company, Xfinity Home, Wink, Logitech Harmony, and Samsung SmartThings.
The Blitzwolf BW-SS1 tasmota integrates with all three voice assistant platforms: Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple’s Siri. You can control the sound of all your Blitzwolf devices as long as you connect them to one of the smart speakers controlled by one of these sound platforms.
Speed and Performance
In terms of speed and functionality, the Blitzwolf system is excellent. Very fast response from app and voice assistant.
The design is certainly unique and in my opinion a little divisive. It offers multiple functions with separate buttons and allows for finer control.
I’d say it definitely doesn’t disappoint, and if you’re looking to get your hands on a Blitzwolf BW-SS1 for aesthetic reasons, I’m not worried as you get used to it very quickly.
Reliability so far has been excellent, but it’s definitely something you’d expect to work on for years. As I mentioned earlier, the BW-SS1 range has a reputation for being the best. If this is your priority, Blitzwolf should be at the top of your list.
If you’re thinking of replacing your light switches with smart switches with enabled apps that you can automate or control remotely, Blitzwolf should be at the top of your list. This smart switch is available for purchase on Banggood.
