Schneider Electric Brings Award-Winning AvatarOn to Singapore

Schneider Electric’s award-winning suite of switches AvatarOn offers superb design flexibility while meeting all the practical requirements of today’s living spaces.

Schneider Electric Brings Award-Winning AvatarOn to Singapore

The meaning of the word ‘avatar’ has evolved, from a relatively obscure term with roots in Hinduism to a staple element of our identity in the digital realm. An icon in a chat room, a profile picture in social media, a character design in video games – creating an avatar is one of the most gratifying ways of expressing yourself today.

Schneider Electric, one of the leading companies in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has brought this mode of personalisation to the analogue world with its new switch AvatarOn.

Winner of the iF Design Award 2017, AvatarOn features a vast range of interchangeable covers with handy one-hand snap-on removal mechanism that allows for quick and easy changes at all time. Its mirror-smooth surface can be printed on with any design of your choice, taking personalisation to a whole new level.

AvatarOn is developed with Schneider Electric’s patented ‘Slim Rocker, Sure Click’ (SS) mechanism that features sleek frameless design, slim profile, and an extra large dolly that gives a softer press and a flutter-free switching.

The series also comes with the option of soft LED locators that will discreetly illuminate the switch in the dark. Each switch can also be integrated with sensors and sound control capabilities to automatically switch the light off in unoccupied spaces. And for additional convenience, AvatarOn can also be outfitted with dual USB charging ports and a mobile holder that serves as a temporary mobile phone charger.

AvatarOn is currently available for purchase in white and dark wood while other colours and custom designs are available on a made-to-order basis. Interested? Drop Schneider Electric’s Customer Care Centre a line using the form below. Your AvatarOn awaits.
