Switchmate Home for iOS

By Switchmate Inc. Free

Developer's Description

The Switchmate app allows you to interact with our full suite of Switchmate Devices!

Connect, Configure & Control Switchmate, SWMbright, SWMpower, Zip, and SWMcube all in one place. Setup, toggling, setting preferences like timers and Welcome Home, and more!

We are currently hard at work on a major ground-up revamp (v4.0) and would love to hear your feedback, we're listening!

- Control your existing switches or power ports

- Timers: automatically turn your switches or plugs on/off at preset times

- Welcome Home: automatically turn on switches or plugs of your choosing when you get home

- Updates: get over the air firmware updates for your Switchmate device(s) to make sure you have the latest/greatest

- Google Assistant Support (Home Control if you have a SWMpower/Zip, or Explore for BLE-Only Functionality)

- (SWMpower/Zip) Remote Control away from home!

- (SWMpower/Zip) Alexa Support

- Voice Control: Use the mic icon in the app to control your lights with your voice, see below for more details!

Some of the Features we're working on for 4.x:

- Widgets: Add them to your Today Screen so you don't have to open the app to toggle switches or use voice commands

- Grouping: Create & control groups of devices together.

- Timeout: Automatically turn off a switch after X amount of time!

- API & Tasker/IFTTT Plugins: Per your requests, we're still in the early planning stages on this one but we're working on it!

- iWatch Support: Because who doesn't want to use their watch to do all this?

Voice Control Feature:

You can click the Microphone icon in the app and simply say your command - voice activation tries to first match by the switch name that shows in your list of devices (and you can change under Device Settings), but if it can't find that it will try to match to the location you selected when you first setup your Switchmate(s). And you can even use "all" to control all switches within range! Here are some examples:

"Turn Kenny's Room light off"

"Turn on my living room lights"

"Turn all my lights off"

"Bedroom on"

We covered a good amount of variation in voice commands but if you find one that doesn't work definitely let us know and we'll see what we can do to get it added in!


- Switchmate Device(s) of course!

- iOS 8+ is required so we can use Bluetooth Low Energy in order to save a lot of battery!

Switchmate devices are currently only sold in the US and Canada, but we're working on international releases already and hope to be launching in various international markets!

Note: This application asks for use of background services for the "Welcome Home" feature.
