Switches generally fulfil the purpose of controlling and operating electrical installations. Traditional light switches for operating lighting are found in almost every household. In just a few years, rooms will automatically detect the lighting mood people prefer by means of hidden sensors. Special switches that place particular value on design and/or functionality and are equipped with an innovative dimming function have become increasingly popular. Dimmers, which typically come in the form of rotary dimmers, or touch dimmers, generally enable more individual control and can regulate and reduce energy consumption. In addition to light switches, sockets are among the most well-known and common elements of switch ranges. As either in-wall sockets or mobile socket strips or multiple sockets, they provide electronic devices with power and are relevant to virtually every area of our lives. You can find the most well-known suppliers such as GIRA, Merten, Busch Jäger, Jung and Berker at reasonable prices in our eibabo® shop. In addition to the traditional line of switches, the past two years have seen an increasing popularity of complete multimedia solutions, for versatile use in both private households and business environments. The aim is essentially to combine different connections with one another and, for example, to create user-friendly solutions in the form of multi-purpose table sockets for interior use and energy columns for outdoor use. Switches that can be used even if no power line or bus line is installed are just as innovative. This involves radio receivers, infrared switches and transmitter remote controls. These switches allow you to realise cable-free installations and implement the most creative ideas. Considering the numerous areas of application in which motion detectors and motion sensors are already used, one could only imagine the possibilities that will arise here in the future. eibabo® helps you design the future according to your individual needs, with premium branded products from the Berger, Busch Jäger, GIRA, Hager, Jung, Legrand, Merten, Peha and Siemens.
