Former Amazon Director Creates New Smart Hardware Company Focusing on Ease of Installation

Third Reality, a maker of user-friendly smart home products founded by a former Amazon director, has released the first ever Alexa-integrated light switch, RealitySwitch, with wire-free installation.

RealitySwitch uses a patented mechanism that fits over existing light switches and installs in 60 seconds. The sleek, minimalist device is powered by internal batteries that last for more than a year.

"This is the first smart switch that's simple enough to treat as a children's toy," said founder Xuezhang Dong, former Director of Software Development at Lab126, Amazon's hardware division. "It's by far the easiest way of integrating voice assistants with your home."

"I originally created this for my young daughter, who wanted to turn on her light without getting out of bed on cold winter mornings. Our goal is to make this technology easily accessible to everyone, with no need to touch your home wiring or look for your circuit breakers."

RealitySwitch works directly with the Amazon Echo Plus, and is also compatible with the Amazon Echo or Google Home when paired with an external hub. It is designed to fit any standard North American light switch, supporting both toggle and rocker styles.

This product is available on Amazon now. You can find out more details in 2018 Global Sources Electronics show, Booth No: 6Q14 in Hong Kong or send email to
