Deako’s faceplates and backplates are specifically designed for all Deako switches and come ready to install in your home. The faceplate can easily be removed to click switches in and out of the backplate, allowing for flexibility in switch placement.
The Simple Rocker Switch can easily be changed out to upgrade to a Deako smart product without needing to call an electrician or turn the power off.

Does Deako require any special wiring?
No, Deako backplates work with existing wires in your home. Deako smart products do require a neutral wire which is common in any home built in the US or Canada within the past 40 years.
What if I have multiple switches side-by-side?
When multiple switches sit beside each other, this is called a multi-gang. We support 1, 2, 3, and 4-gang configurations. Use the drop-down menu on the Deako Store to select the correct number of gangs for your home.
Can Quickwire backplates be used on a multiway with wired backplates?
Yes, Quickwire backplates and wired backplates can be used on the same multiway. Check out wiring diagrams for multiways here.
