The Plum LightPad
Plum has completely reimagined the light dimmer. We've created a connected device that not only dims lights, but creates a completly new user experience.
The Plum LightPad connects directly to your home WiFi network without the need for additional bridges, dongles or gateways. The initial setup of the dimmer is as easy as sending or receiving a text message. You simply launch your Plum app and answer two questions to provision the dimmer.
The Plum LightPad features an intuitive, multi-touch, touch pad interface. Simply tap or on off. Use one finger to swipe up or down to change the intensity of the light.
But, if you use two fingers, you can simultaneously control all the lights in a room. Multiple dimmer communicate with eachother directly over WiFi.
Or, when you go to bed at night or are leaving the house, just use the pinch gesture on any Plum TouchPad to turn off all the lights in the house.
With the Plum app, you can quickly program scenes that control multiple dimmers throughout your house.
The Plum Lightpad has an illuminated ring around the touchpad. When you approach the dimmer, it detects your presence and glows in your choice of colors.
Plum has built-in sub-metering in each dimmer. This allows you to know how much you're spending for your lighting or that your kitchen lights cost you 10% more this month.
Plum has a full line of energy management and convenience products. In addition to the Plum lightpad, we also have the Plum SmartPlug and the Plum Smart Outlet which allows you to control table lamps or electrical appliances.
