How to choose switches for your home?

Selection of appropriate switches and sockets is as important as is the selection of light and other interior equipment for your home. The selection of switches and sockets is very large today and that is why it is many times hard to pick a single model that suits us. An efficient solution is offered by the switching programme LivingLight.

What do you have to think about when choosing switches and sockets?

You might have noticed that you have to pay attenton to every detail  – no matter how small or unimportant it may seem – If you are deciding for a renovation or restoration of your home or you are in the process of constructing your home. And there is nothin different even when it comes to the selection of switches and sockets.

The first thing that you must take into account when choosing switches and sockets is that we have to decide whether we are going to choose a multi-part (German) or modular (Italian) switching programme as that depends on which boxes we have to install before the rough construction work. The multi-part switching programmes is installed into round boxes and modular switching programme into rectangular boxes (2-7 modular). The new axial switches Bticino LivingLight are the solution in cases where we have a problem with the depth of the box as they reach only 22,9mm into the depth and are quieter and softer.

German style – multi-part –  FI60 boxes

Italian – modular – 1 box of different sizes

The next step of choice is knowing all the assembly parts of switches and sockets. One switching system is assembled up from three basic parts:

Quality mounting frames tailored to your wishes!

Large selection of different colours and materials for a perfect match with your rooms!

LivingLight switching programme offers you everything you need!

In the following paragraphs we offer you some basic advice that will help you choose your perfect switch or socket more easily!

Choosing the size of the switching frame

You will have to think well about how many switching elements (modules) you want to plug into a single switch before you choose a mounting frame.  Do you want to assemble a switch that lights 3 different lights? Or maybe a combination of a switch for turning on the the lights, dropping blinds and sockets? Maybe you need 3 sockets and a cable input?

Modular switching programme Bticino LivingLight allows you to practically limitlessly combine  different switching elements which is where smart solutions (advanced lighting management, venetian blinds dimming, thermoregulation, etc.) are deservant of a special mention. You will find mounting frames from thermoplastic that allow for a the mounting of 2, 3, 4 or 7 modules in our assortiment.

Decorative frames completely change your home

Give your attention to the choice of a suitable design and colour of decorative frames. The switching programme LivingLight offer numerous colour combinations and different designs so you will have no problem finding the best combination for your needs and wishes. The switches are made out of the most quality material besides that and the special programme of metal decorative frames LivingLight AIR prides itself with eit exceptional thinness – the frames are only 1-3mm thick.

Decorative frames are available in different materials (plastic, metal and wood), in different colours (white, blue, gray, silver, golden, wood-like or metal, etc.) and with different final finishes (matte or gloss). Just be careful that you pick the decorative frame with the same number of modules as your mounting frame.

And most importantly: switching elements

It is especially important to choose suitable switching elements – switches, buttons, sockets, outputs for all sorts of different cables, thermostats, sensors, etc. –  even though every single one of the three basic elements is important during the installation of the switch.

Even in that case the smart design of the switching programmes Bticino LivingLight allows for practically limitless options. You will find numerous switching eleemtns in our shop Comfort-el that range from the somplest switches do exceptionally functional solutions and smart solutions that increase our comfort and save energy. Switching elements of this programme pride themselves with exceptional quality, greater sensitivity (which means that an already very light touch will be enough for turning on and off) and exceptional silentness. Even the switching elements are availale in three different colours so you can choose a really perfect combination for each room in your home!
