Crownstone installation

General instructions for the installation can be found in the Installation page. The instructions below will take you step-by-step through the process of switchcraft installation. If at any point you are unsure of what to do, stop installation immediately and contact an electrician.


Switchcraft is an easy adaptation of existing wall switches, allowing them to work together with Crownstones. Switchcraft is a bridge between the two outputs of the switch. This will cause a very short interruption of the power when the switch toggles between the outputs. This is used as an input command. If your wall switch supports traditional multiway switching (see diagram below), you can use Switchcraft.

Multiway switch

Step 1: Before modifying your wall switches, turn off the power at the fuse box.

Step 1

Step 2: Verify the power is off by flipping the light switch on and off.

Step 2

Step 3: Remove the switch button with a flathead screwdriver.

Step 5: Unscrew the light switch from the mounting box.

Step 5

Step 6: Pull the switch away from the wall to expose the wiring, but leave the wires connected.

Step 6

Step 7: Bend the Switchcraft wire into a U-shape.

Step 7

Step 8: Connect the Switchcraft wire to the two outputs of the switch.

Step 8

Note: If you have an existing multiway switch installation, then connect the wires as shown in diagram (3).


Step 9: Close your switch after adding the Switchcraft wire and turn the power back on at the fuse box.

Step 9

Step 10: Open the app and navigate to the built-in Crownstone that will be switched by your new Switchcraft switch. You have to specifically enable the usage of Switchcraft for each Crownstone in its settings.
