LIFX Smart Home Product Recalled

A product recall has been issued for an LIFX smart switch, which is sold at JB Hi-Fi, due to fire risk.

The black and white models of the LIFX Switch, both made by Lifi Labs sold at JB Hi-Fi with model numbers LFSWWHT4FAU and LFSWBLKT4FAU, risk short-circuit if the screws are installed into metal frame brackets, which could cause serious injury or death.

The smart switch is a 4-button in-wall switch that can add ‘smart’ control to your lights and smart lights.

According to Product Safety Australia, units sold between 1 October 2019 and 30 September 2020 are affected.

“Consumers should contact Lifi Labs to arrange replacement of screws by electrician, or alternatively, consumers will be provided a full refund or replacement of the product,” the agency said.

The LIFX Switch is still on sale at JB Hi-Fi for $179, though the product page warns that professional installation is required under Australian law.
