limited range/stopped working

10/14/2017 by JOHN AED

Easy to set up, but has limited range and in my experience had to have line of sight to unit from phone. Stopped working when trying to download update. Would NEVER stop updating and could NOT connect again. Changed batteries and STILL would NOT work. Would NOT buy again unless more instructions were forthcoming.More > < Less


A Mind of its own

I received this product last Friday and have had nothing but trouble with it. It randomly goes on at times not set. Needless to say when that happens it will not go on at the set time. I did all the trouble shooting that was suggested on the pamphlet. I have contacted the company but no response. I am going on vacation and hoped I could use it for the front and back porch lights. I really wanted this to work. I will contact the company one more time and if no response I will send it back.More > < Less


It's ok

I really like the idea of these switches. They just aren't as reliable as I would like them to be. Sometimes they seem to respond more quickly to my phone than others. I have asked friends to try with different phones, and they have had the same frustrating results. I have tried to set it up to turn on as soon as I walk on my porch (about 5 feet away from the switch), and it has never turned the porch light on as I am standing near the front door. I'm not sure if it's the switch or the app. Other apps work just fine over my Bluetooth and wi-fi. Not impressed.

Plus, they are surprisingly loud when the switch is flipped. Why does it have to be so loud?

very disappointed

12/18/2016 by Marlene

I was so excited to receive Switchmate as I wanted to use it for my front porch light. I set it up according to the directions and it worked..... for one night. Since then it won't even turn the light on or off manually never mind the auto programming (which is what I wanted it for). For now it is sitting on the table under the light switch.More > < Less


Lousy product

Rocker switch doesn't work...too weak to effectively turn on/off the switch. I waited too long to return and am stuck with it.

About Switchmate

Quick Switch

Instantly automate your lights and fans without having to change your light bulbs or re-wire your home.

Place Switchmate over any toggle or rocker switch, then download the companion app to control the switch via Bluetooth.

It’s an easy induction into the smart home lifestyle. With Switchmate, lights can automatically turn on as you arrive home or enter rooms, and timers allow you to set your lights to go automatically on or off while you’re away.

There’s a robotic arm inside Switchmate that responds to the app—moving the switch for you. We like that it also lets you press your switches on and off by hand, too, if you like.

Add anyone you want in the family and let them control Switchmate as long as they’re within Bluetooth range.

Turn the lights off from the couch when you fire up Netflix. Snap off the lights from bed. Or just have a lit up house greet you from the driveway. It’s all in the palm of your hand.
