Need to add or change a light switch? Looking to convert a pull chain? Just trying to find a simpler way to turn the lights on and off? GoConex makes all of these things easy. These seemingly simple switches are the solution to any light switch problem in both new and old homes. With such a versatile and easy-to-install product, the applications are endless. Make improvements to your home with wire-free switches that do the work for you.
The wire-free switches and controllers that you’ll find by GoConex can be paired in any combination. With nearly unlimited ways of connecting your GoConex light switch to your lights, it’s easy to get inventive and find solutions that will work for you. One Destination Lighting customer used the switches to create this advanced lighting setup:
“I have 4 recessed task lights & a large general illumination light that share than the main dimmer-controlled power switch. The GoConex wireless switch is set to turn off the large general illumination light while the recessed lights stay on. One of the wall switches is located with the main switch, while the other is near the sink for convenience. Compared to other wireless switches I have looked at, GoConex is an excellent value, and the wall switch does not require an in-wall box. More at, this switch mounts COMPLETELY flush to the wall surface under a standard Decora wall plate.” – Brian, a Destination Lighting customer
Not convinced that you need GoConex in your life yet? We’ve come up with a few other ways that a GoConex wireless switch can simplify your life:
Convert a Pull-Chain Fixture
Pull-chain fixtures can be great for aesthetics. However, they are not always the most convenient or practical. If you have a pull-chain fixture with no light switch and wish to convert it to a switched fixture, GoConex is your solution.
Simply connect a GoConex controller in the junction box behind your fixture, then place the switch wherever you’d like. If you’d like to get rid of your pull-chain fixture and replace it with a switched fixture, there’s no need to do any wiring to add a wall switch. Disconnect the old fixture, install the controller in the junction box, connect the wires to the new fixture, and install the wireless switch anywhere on the wall.
Completely eliminate the need for a pull-chain light fixture in your home with GoConex. Whether your pull chain is difficult to reach or you’re just looking for a simpler solution, these wireless light switches make converting a pull-chain light to a switch a simple affair that can be done without the need for an electrician.
Standard light switches are installed at a height of 48 inches. Wireless switches can be placed at any height, making them an easy way to accommodate those who cannot reach. Since the GoConex switches do not require any wiring or cutting into the wall, temporarily placing a switch lower on the wall for young children or wheelchair-bound individuals can be done without causing damage to your home.
Plus, with the variety of GoConex switches available, you’ll be able to find the switch that’s perfect for your or your family members’ needs. Don’t worry about traditional light switches that can be a challenge to switch when you have arthritis or joint issues – with wide wireless light switches that can be pushed in with ease, you can create a more accessible lighting situation for your home.
Correct Existing Switch Position
Have a poorly placed switch in your home? A switch hiding behind a door or in the wrong room is a common household issue. Correct this problem by adding a GoConex switch to a location that makes more sense. With the ability to correct this issue without needing to cut into the wall or update your wiring, GoConex makes it easy to move your switch where you need it to be – which is great for both accessibility and convenience.
A GoConex switch would make a great add-on to your child’s top bunk or lofted bed. Attach the switch to the side of the bed and your child no longer has to climb a ladder in the dark. Up to three different lights can be controlled by one switch. One helpful combination would be your child’s bedroom, the hallway, and closest bathroom.
Convenience and Safety
Have a detached building like a garage, guesthouse, boathouse, or barn on your property? A wireless switch allows you to control the lights from the comfort of your home before walking across the yard at night. GoConex wireless transmitters have a range of 250 feet or 75 meters, dense materials like brick will decrease this range. If the distance between your home and detached structure is greater than 250 feet you will want to keep the wireless switch as a remote rather than fixing it to a wall.
Simple Wireless Switch Installation
Whether you want to add a switch, switch multiple lights or control your lighting with a portable switch, GoConex makes switch installation simple. There is no need to cut holes, pull wire in the wall or switch boxes to install. The switches can be mounted on any surface, including brick, tile, concrete, glass and painted drywall. Turn your home into a more accessible and convenient location with wireless light switches that are designed for your needs and located in the places where you need them.
