Within the dramatically small size of Smart Switch 6 lies engineering focused not just on intelligence and reliability, but also on safety. From Australia to Andorra, from the United States to the United Kingdom, every Smart Switch 6 has been custom engineered to maximize the volts and amperage it can offer without ever compromising on quality or your safety.
Smart Switch 6 isn’t just a smart switch, it’s a safe switch.

When smaller actually is better.
We made the first Smart Switch in 2006. Now we’ve re-engineered it, perfecting its technology and design, inside and out.
Smart Switch 6 is the most beautiful Smart Switch yet. Compact without compromise, at just 60 x 60 mm Smart Switch 6 is over 84% smaller than our first edition. And even though it’s 43% smaller than the recently release Smart Switch Gen5, it still benefits from its industry-leading technology.
Smart Energy Switch 16.9 x 2.4 inches
Smart Switch Gen5 3.2 x 2.3 inches
Smart Switch 6 2.3 x 2.3 inches
Smart plug. Convenient plug.
There’s smart. There’s convenient. Smart Switch 6 is both.
We live in an age of USB charging, so Smart Switch 6 offers it. Discretely crafted into the design, Smart Switch 6 offers side-port charging of smart phones and tablets.
Plugs that block multiple power outlets aren’t just inconvenient, they’re annoying. Smart Switch 6 has been designed to reduce the possibility of that happening. At only 60 mm / 2.3 inches in size, Smart Switch 6 can be used without blocking the outlet its installed next to.
Smart Switch 6 benefits from nearly a decade’s worth of engineering know-how. But to build something this perfect, we had to start our engineering process from scratch. Designing the Smart Switch 6 wasn’t simply about making improvements, it was about reimaging what the modern home truly needed from a wireless smart plug.
The home isn’t just where the heart is, it’s where your family should be safest. In the regions where electrical standards allow, Smart Switch 6 prevents objects from being inserted into it via its inbuilt socket protection.
Smart Switch 6 can power devices that draw up to 15 amps of power. But safety comes first, so a different Smart Switch 6 has been engineered for every country it’s available in, ensuring that it’s never overpowered and never unsafe.
Your smart switch will keep getting smarter thanks to Aeotec’s over-the-air firmware updates. Whenever new firmware is released, you’ll be able to update Smart Switch 6 wirelessly.
Your loved ones are protected and so are your valuables. Smart Switch 6 features inbuilt surge and overcurrent protection helping to prevent your electronics from ever being damaged.
Wireless doesn’t mean weak. Smart Switch 6 can communicate with other Z-Wave devices at distances up to 150 metres / 492 feet.
Plug and play.
Anyone can install Smart Switch 6. Plug it into a wall outlet and press the action button on the front. Everything else is handled by your Z-Wave hub.
