Deako believes everyone should be able to enjoy the wonderful experience of lighting design. They invented the modular light switch system which makes it easy to customize lighting with both simple and smart upgrades that have a big impact. Homeowners can upgrade their lighting at any time, without hiring an electrician, while builders can now offer a future-proof home at little to no extra cost.
