Set a Schedule (Timer Mode)
Have you ever wanted to have our lights come on when your alarm goes off? How about setting your lights around the hose to come on when you're on vacation? The Home Automation Switch can easily perform these functions when set up in Timer mode through your host device. You can set up any AC device on an daily or weekly schedule, repeating every day, only some days, just on weekends, etc. Once settings have been sent to the switch, it remembers them and keeps performing the same function reliably until changed.
Power On When Close (Proximity Mode)
Go beyond simple schedules and use Bluetooth Proximity to control your AC devices. The switch will constantly seek for the device it was previously paired to, and turn on as soon as a connection is established (device must be paired or a persistent connection request will appear from the switch). Have your entryway lights turn on as soon as you walk in the door! Uses less than 1 watt of power so it won't even register on your energy bill.
Remote Control (Instant Mode)
Want to just simply switch the device on and off manually? Your smartphone can also act as a simple remote control. Turn your device on or off with a quick touch on your screen. No more trying to find a proprietary switch, or awkwardly clapping your hands with just the right timing, your remot is right on your mobile device.
Remotely control any AC powered device from your Android phone or tablet, or custom build your own application from our Python open-source library.
