Multi Function Switch

Smart Switch for power line AC

Multi Function Switch

With this smart switch you can turn mains-powered devices on and off easily and conveniently. Applications such as TVs, radios, basement and outside lights and the like come to mind. Thanks to various sensor options this can also be done automatically or with a delay. In addition, this circuit also helps to save energy.
