Switchboards for the rich! These high-end switches come with fingerprint sensors

I’d imagine a rich Lex Luthor having something like the Biometric Switch Plate in his home. With its slick, premium design, and one variant that literally comes studded with diamonds, the Biometric Switch Plate lets you control your lights, fans, and appliances with a touch. It uses a TouchID style fingerprint sensor to authenticate your identity, and a touch-sensitive switch plate to switch on/off lights and fans as well as a slider to turn their intensity up or down.

The switch plate comes in both wall-mounted and wireless versions, and gives you the ability to choose who can access the controls, a feature that would be pretty useful if you don’t like others coming in and messing with your thermostat, or leaving lights on around the house!
