Room director switches

Each room must include a room director switch. Room director switches cost $200 individually or come as part of the $400 starter kit. The room director communicates to the extension switches and acts as the touchscreen control center.

Installation

Noon's switches clip into the wall plate once wiring is complete. Installation instructions are easy to follow and if you're comfortable with a little bit of wiring, the system is pretty straightforward. Always be sure to turn off the circuit breaker for the room in which you are working.

Night light feature

The Noon Smart Lighting System includes a night light feature. When the room director detects motion during your specified time of day, dim lighting will illuminate the space.
