GE has announced a new lineup of 'C by GE' hubless smart switches and dimmers for your home.

The new C by GE Hubless Three-Wire Smart Switch and two Hubless Dimmer models are industry firsts. They do not require an additional product, such as a hub, to integrate with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for voice control. Unlike existing products, these innovations give more consumers access to smart home technologies as they can be installed and operated in most North American households, regardless of the age of the home.

The Smart Switches do not require a neutral wire and are smaller in size, making them widely compatible and simple to install. They come with an optional accessory that eliminates bulb ghosting and flickering that can occur with other smart switch solutions.

“For nearly 130 years, GE Lighting has been a trusted brand and consumers continue to have confidence in the C by GE smart home products we offer,” says Paul Williams, GM Product Management & Growth, GE Lighting. “As we expand our presence in the smart home, we’re committed to providing them with convenient products that exceed expectations.”

The C by GE Wire-Free (battery powered) Dimmer can be used to control C by GE smart bulbs, switches and dimmers. It can be placed on any wall using a removable adhesive strip making it simple to add an additional location for controlling room lighting without electrical work. In addition, a Wire-Free (battery powered) Motion Sensor and Wire-Free (battery powered) Remote Control will also be available to consumers.

You can use these new devices with Apple HomeKit; however, a hub is required. They are set to arrive in the first quarter of this year with the switches starting at $39.99 and the dimmers starting at $49.99.
