Simply Automated Expands “Anywhere” Virtual Lighting Controls

New @ Home Controls

SAI Anywhere Virtual Lighting & Appliance Controls

Electricians, custom home integrators, and do-it-yourselfers, celebrate, because the Simply Automated “Anywhere” product line (available through Home Controls) now includes a Wire-In Fixture Relay Module, a Duplex Receptacle, and a Plug-In Appliance Module, plus an “Anywhere”-compatible Scheduler-Timer (similar to the popular UPB-compatible version).

When Simply Automated Inc. (SAI) released the original “Anywhere” 3-Way Switch Kit, electricians made the kit one of SAI’s most popular products ever. The “Anywhere” 3-Way Switch Kit offers an easier, more cost-effective solution for creating a 3-way light switch by employing a more simple powerline communications technology (compared to SAI’s traditional UPB protocol). Now, “Anywhere” technology can be used for a wider range of lighting and appliance control applications.

  • Popular solution for remodels and outdoor lighting control
  • Employs Simply Automated’s advanced powerline technology
  • More reliable than DIY consumer-grade (RF wireless) options
  • No PC-configuration required – program channels with integrated programming button
  • No new wiring required – wall switches and receptacles utilize existing wires
  • Transmitting devices send powerline signals over 1 mile

Simply Automated’s Anywhere devices support multiple communication channels, allowing you to create a custom lighting and appliance control system with one or multiple zones.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Simply Automated’s Anywhere Switches and Kits are incompatible (will not talk to or work with) any of Simply Automated’s PC-Configured, Pre-Configured, SimplySmart, or other UPB or UPStart product solutions.
