Control lights with two or more switches without them being linked with a wire. The Atoko Linked Switches automatically link together via radio signals and will synchronise so that all units will come on together and go off together.

Ideal for stairwells where it's impractical to install a wire between switches, or to control out-house lighting from the main building.

Range is about the same as 2.4Mhz WiFi, typically 20 metres (but is dependent on the radio signal and other environmental factors).

Add switches and/or lights to an existing Atoko network; no pairing or entering codes is necessary - just power up the additional device.  After a short time (maximum of about 5 minutes) all units will automatically synchronise. [note, during the first 5 minutes after introducing a new unit there may be an short delay between switching on one unit, and the response in other units - this normally does not exceed 5 seconds.  After 5 minutes, response in all units is normally less than 1 second, but occasionally may be up to about 3 seconds]

You can even have more than one network (up to eight) by changing the Atoko operating channel in units; units connected on the same channel will synchronise.

Note: It is recommended that the signal environment is checked near where each unit is to be installed.  Go to WiFi settings on a smart phone/tablet/PC to display available networks. Although the Linked Switch does not required a router, confirming router signals are received in the intended position for the unit  will help confirm that the position is suitable.  Siting adjacent to large metal blocks (such as iron beams) may reduce the available range.  During the check, also confirm there are no other Atoko units using the intended channel in range (station names are Atoko-x-yyyy, where x is the channel number, and yyyy random characters).

Total range can be extended by siting units between between units at the extemes.

Provided mains is applied to the input terminals, units will function regardless of whether a Switched Live input is connected, or whether the Live Output is connected.  This allows each unit to act as a controlled of the group and to switch a connected light, to be just a controller of other units on the same channnel, to be just a connected to a light (controlled by other units), or to be act as a range extender.



Do I need connection to the internet?

No, the system is independent of the internet.

Do I need a router?

No, the system has sets up its own network

To add two way control to a light, do I need to change my light switch?

No, the existing light switch can remain; simply wire in a unit where the switched live is connected to the lighting ring.  You will need a second switch connected to a second unit.

Do light switches need to be 2 way?

No, a simple mains on-off is sufficient.

What is the range of the units?

Range depends on the local radio environment.  The system uses its own 2.4Mh WiFi, so the range is the same as you get from a typical router.  Range can be extended by placing an additional unit between the sender and the receiver.

How do I add another unit?

Just power it up – there’s no need to remove power from existing units.  It may take a few minutes for the existing units to recognise the new one, but once recognised, synchronisation will happen automatically. 

Will my internet speed be affected?

No - the system does not use the internet.  

Easy Set Up/Installation

Install as shown in the diagrams.  Due to the specified location, the units themselves do not need to be connected to CPC (Earth).  All other circuit components should be connected to CPC as required by local regulations.
