MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Do you hate coming home at night to a dark home? Are you growing tired of having to go all the way across the room to flip a light switch? Well, a product on shelves now may save the day!

Switchmate is a home lighting device that instantly snaps over existing light switches to bring lighting controls right to your phone, and we're testing it here on Does It Work.

Switchmate runs on 2 double-A batteries and connects to your mobile device via the free Switchmate app and blue-tooth technology.

After downloading the app, installation and personalization of your Switchmate may take anywhere between 3 to 5 minutes. Once the setup is complete, all you have to do is attach Switchmate to a light switch of your choice. For us, this process was seamless as advertised thanks to Switchmate's magnetic attachment.

Once on the wall, we were able to control the switch through our mobile device with a simple tap of the icon, proving Switchmate does work.

We were also able to set Swtichmate to turn the lights on and off using a timer and whenever it sensed the associated mobile device nearby. This would come in handy for anyone coming home at night to a dark house.
