Easy installation

Welcome to the UK’s first comprehensive yet simple-to-install DIY smart home system.


“It just works!”

Lightwave is the first comprehensive DIY smart home range in the UK. It’s simple to install yourself and integrates seamlessly with other leading smart home products for worry-free wireless home automation.

Swap-out design:

Every dimmer or plug socket has been designed so that it looks, behaves and can be installed in exactly the same way as a standard socket or dimmer. In most cases, therefore, installation consists of a quick swap-out using the same wires.

Standard wiring:

All Lightwave products use standard wiring for simplicity. Simply ensure you have back boxes 35mm deep to house our sockets and dimmers (most homes already have these) or use the supplied 10mm spacer to add some extra depth if not.

No special tools:

You don’t need any special tools or expertise to install our products. Wiring diagrams and other helpful videos and guides are available if you need them. And if you find you’re unsure of anything, you can always give us a quick call and speak to a friendly expert.

Safe and legal to DIY:

It’s safe and legal for you to install Lightwave in your own home without any specialist qualifications, as long as you’re responsible for the property and don’t undertake any significant re-wiring (you shouldn’t have to do this to install our products). Of course, if you have any doubts at any stage, always consult a qualified electrician or equivalent expert.


Plug & Play

Many Lightwave devices, such as our plug-in socket, wire-free switches, remotes and the Lightwave Link (which provides app control) are 'plug & play' products. So installation couldn't be simpler. 


Plug & Play

Plug a lamp into one of our plug-in sockets and link it to the Lightwave App or a stylish wire-free switch that you can stick to the wall and you can introduce impressive scene lighting to a room in seconds. 


Professional Installation

Although our products are easy and safe to install yourself, you may prefer to call an electrician in for professional installation.

Familiar to any Electrician:

Any electrician with a basic Part-P qualification can legally install Lightwave products (including heating) in your home. Any professional should be familiar with the standard connections provided on our dimmers, sockets or relays and should be comfortable fitting the products.
