Without stopping at the recent launch of its first HomeKit-activated light switch, Meross has dropped another switch that is designed for more complicated wiring settings. Now available on Amazon, the Meross 3-way Wi-Fi smart wall switch is compatible with scenarios where a single light body is controlled by several switches, such as at the top and bottom of a ladder.
Affordable and easy to install: with a smart light design designed in 3 ways, you only need to replace a traditional 3-way switch. Half the cost and labor. Installation 15 min. the Meross smart light switch is suitable for your standard 1/2/3/4 band Decora / GFCI faceplate.
The latest 3-way switch looks identical to the original single-pole version, which we found above and beyond its affordable price in our recent review. The switch has a clean white plastic design, a single rocker switch to switch on connected lights and an LED light that can be used to locate it in the dark.

Although the 3-way wiring usually involves replacing both switches, Meross says its switch only requires changing one, which makes it easier to install. However, as with most other smart light switches, the new 3-way switch requires the presence of a ground wire and a neutral wire in the desired electrical box, which older homes may not have.
As with the single-pole version, the 3-way switch connects directly to home networks via 2.4ghz Wi-Fi and can be paired without a separate hub. HomeKit switch association does not require additional application downloads or account registration and can be configured entirely through the Apple Home application.
In addition to the HomeKit, the Meross 3-Way switch supports Amazon Amazon and Google Assistant. For those outside the HomeKit ecosystem, the Meross app, available on both iOS and Android, can be used to create timers, programs and even scenes with other Meross accessories.
The Meross 3-Way Smart Wi-Fi Wall Switch is now available on Amazon for $ 27.99. Meross seems to be running a launch promotion, as there is currently an $ 8 coupon that can be applied to the Amazon list, making the already affordable switch even cheaper.
