Makes Bulbs Smarter
Timers and Scheduling
Control multiple products in a Wink ecosystem from a central location. Turn smart and standard bulbs on or off. Schedule the Tapt switch to turn on or off automatically depending on the time of day.
Wink Shortcuts and Robot Control
The switch's clear faceplate is backed with a white panel, giving the illusion that the switch is floating in midair. When used with the Wink Hub or Relay, Tapt can control a variety of products individually or together in a single scenario with a push of a button. Use Wink Shortcuts and Robots from the Wink app to trigger scenarios instantly with your smartphone.
Tapt can work as an on/off switch for individual products ranging from smart plugs to basic incandescent bulbs. Wink Shortcuts found in the Wink app allow users to assign single products to the Tapt switch. Wink Robots can be programmed from the Wink App to create scenarios with multiple smart products in a Wink ecosystem. In the morning, press Tapt to simulatneously turn on the light, draw the blinds, and turn on the coffee maker. Outlink can be scheduled to turn on or off from the Wink app on your mobile device. Set Outlink to automatically turn on lighting, so that it always looks like someone is home.
Once incorporated into a Wink ecosystem, the Tapt Smart Switch works with the Wink app to remotely control smart products and activate custom scenarios. Dim smart bulbs, turn smart and standard lighting on or off, and schedule Tapt to turn products on or off depending on the time of day.
More about Tapt
The Tapt Dual Smart Switch by Quirky works with the Wink Hub or Wink Relay to remotely control smart products and create custom scenes. When it’s time to turn in for the night, lock the front door and turn off the lights with a single press of the Tapt Smart Switch. Ready to wake up? Press Tapt to turn on the light, draw the blinds, and turn on the coffee maker. If you happen to have a Smart Plug like the Quirky Pivot Power Genius or Quirky + GE Outlink, Tapt can turn devices plugged into the smart outlet, like a laptop charger or a fan, on or off. It is a wire-in switch that requires a neutral connection in an electrical box to be installed.
A Wink Hub or Wink Relay wirelessly unifies smart products like lighting, thermostats, blinds, and door locks for total home control. Using an easy-to-navigate app interface, users can remotely control products using iOS and Android smartphones. To assign a particular bulb or appliance either of the two switches, open up the Wink app on your iOS or Android smartphone and scroll through the available products integrated into your home’s Wink ecosystem. Tapt replaces basic single-pole wall switches with two independent smart switches, giving users the ability to instantly manage an extensive range of button-activated products with a single touch.
This product is a Quirky+GE item. Quirky+GE is a co-branded initiative to develop new consumer products from thousands of GE patents and technologies. With access to GE's advanced manufacturing tools and technologies, the Quirky community has worked together to create innovative app-enabled devices for the home.
Note: Tapt can only dim or brighten smart bulbs. Tablet and desktop control is not supported at this time.
Wink App Compatible vs. Wink App Ready
Products that are Wink App Compatible must be connected through a Wink HUB. The Wink HUB allows these products to connect with the Wink App (available for iOS and Android) and interact with other Wink App Compatible or Wink App Ready products – see below. They use communications like Z-Wave, Zigbee and ClearConnect to improve battery life and extend the range of smart products around your home. The Wink HUB allows them to speak the same language, so you can easily control them – and customize their interactions – all from the Wink App. Click on the icon to the left for additional Wink App Compatible products. Products that are Wink App Ready have Wink technology built in and can connect directly to the Wink App (available for iOS and Android) without the assistance of the Wink HUB. Once connected, the Wink App allows you to interact with other Wink App Ready or Wink App Compatible products. Wink App Ready devices use Wi-Fi to connect to your wireless router and communicate with the Wink App - so you can easily control them and and customize their interactions.
