How It Works

Smart Switch 6 can power devices that draw up to 15 amps of power. Schedule scenes with lighting, computers, and more to save on electricity bills. Create your own scenarios by connecting the Smart Switch 6 to your Z-Wave gateway. The unit will report energy usage via its LED Ring. 16 million colors of light will visually communicate how much electricity is being used so you immediately understand if a device uses too much power.

Whenever Aeotec releases new firmware, you’ll be able to update Smart Switch 6 wirelessly. The device is part of Aeon Labs’ Gen5 range of Z-Wave products. That means it outperforms all that has come before it. It’s equipped with the latest Z-Wave 500 series chip and firmware, offering a 50% greater wireless range and a 250% faster communication speed compared with older Z-Wave products. And it always uses AES 128 bit security encryption when active.

You need a Z-Wave gateway which operates with the 500 series chip products to take full advantage of the device. Please consult the manufacturer of your Z-Wave hub to make sure it supports all Smart Switch 6 features.


Just plug it in your outlet or power strip and pair with a Z-Wave remote controller or gateway hub. Connect an electrical device to switch it on or off wirelessly. The Smart Switch 6 is small enough to fit into any outlet and will never block neighboring outlets.


We sent this smart plug to John for review just when he got his new SmartThings 2 hub. Here is what he has to say about the Aeotec Smart Switch 6:

I am pretty happy with this plug so far! I am currently using it with the SmartThings V2 Hub and I have a small space heater plugged into it.
I love that I can see the electric consumption from my smartthings app which is key with a space heater.
