Did you know that most people who want to automate their home start with lighting?
So why aren’t smart switches and dimmers more affordable, more accessible, and more importantly, why don’t they work better?
We took a look at every smart switch and dimmer on the market, evaluated them, and made sure our products covered more than just the basics, and performed better overall for a better price.

Don't worry about picking colors just yet. At the end of the campaign, you will receive a survey where you will pick colors and tell us if you want dimmers or switches.
The Klever Switch & Dimmer allow you to seamlessly transform your entire home into a Klever home within a matter of minutes. No modifications. No neutral wiring. No special bulbs. You’ll be able to control your home’s lighting from anywhere in the world using your phone, smartwatch, tablet, desktop, or laptop as long as you have an internet connection.
You’ll be able to control every Klever Switch and Dimmer using the Kleverness app, whether that’s turning the lights on, turning them off, setting a schedule or setting the mood.
Using the Kleverness app, you can set schedules and manage routines. Make sure your bedroom light turns on at 7:00 A.M. during the week and that the kitchen lights follow shortly after. Give your kids a hard stop with lights off at 9:30 P.M. on school nights and a little later on the weekends. The possibilities are truly endless. Even if your phone isn’t connected, your routines will continue to work. Klever products also have the ability to sync with the sunrise and sunset based on your location.
Using geofencing technology, you can turn your lights on and off automatically as you come and go without ever having to take your phone out of your pocket. It’s the perfect way to make sure all of the lights are turned off when you leave, which can save you money in the long run on your energy bills.
With the Klever Switch, you can monitor the energy consumption of each individual switch and learn what you can use less of to save more money on your next energy bill. You can also set up notifications for daily, monthly and yearly energy consumption reports. Got an old bulb that’s drawing a lot of energy? Kleverness will let you know that it’s time to replace it! If you’re really looking to save, you can dim your lights by hand or by phone with the Klever Dimmer to draw less power, extend the bulb life, save energy and save money at the same time.
Each Klever Switch and Dimmer is a radio frequency repeater, which means that it works in the farthest corners of your house, no matter how far away they are from the hub. No Bluetooth. No WiFi. Just a simple internet connection. Each Switch and Dimmer has a 45-meter radius and each Klever Hub can support up to 512 devices, so you’ll only ever need one.
Klever Switches and Dimmers use AI technology to learn and mimic your schedule while you’re away to make your home appear occupied. You can also set your own custom schedule while you’re away in the Kleverness app. Potential intruders won’t even know you’re gone!
Kleverness supports unlimited users per household, so everyone can be in charge. Whether you rent out your home on Airbnb, struggle with a roommate who leaves every light on, or have a little one who refuses to turn off the lights, you can easily manage and customize Klever permissions directly from your phone.
Set the sleep function through the Kleverness app so that your Switch and Dimmer’s LED lighting will completely turn off when you’ve been inactive or once your schedule says you’re asleep. Need to get up for a trip to the bathroom or kitchen for a midnight snack? Once you’re near the Switch or Dimmer, the proximity sensor will make the LED lights turn back on for your convenience.
Paired switches (When the same light is controlled by more that one switch). Klever switches are perfectly compatible with this kind of installation and will work seamlessly.
With the Kleverness app, you’ll be able to limit connectivity to your home’s network or enable access from anywhere that there’s WiFi. Your security means the world to us, which is why the Kleverness app will only connect to your Klever Hub using secure, encrypted access.
Whether you’re switching apartments or making the move to a new home, Klever Switches and Dimmers go where you go. Just remove the Klever products you’ve installed, pack them up, put the old switch plates back on, and get moving! Installing and uninstalling our switches and dimmers is easy, intuitive and can be done within a matter of minutes.

That’s us, Dan and Alex, the dynamic duo behind Kleverness, and we’re two extremely ambitious entrepreneurs with a passion for technology and design. For a while now, we’ve been trying to find a home automation lighting system for our own homes that has all of the functionality we’ve been searching for. When we couldn’t find it, we took it upon ourselves to create our own version that provided the same functionality as the competition, without the need for a neutral wire. With the right team in place, we were able to create a design, build an app and put everything in place to automate your home’s lighting easily and efficiently, but now we need your help. From the Kleverness family to yours, we thank you for your support!
We get that not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, but you can always help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of! We can’t thank you enough for checking out Kleverness and helping us make this project a success.
