  • Overview

    Using Apple HomeKit technology, the iDevices Switch is a connected plug that lets you control, monitor and schedule electronics throughout your home using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and Siri voice commands. The iDevices Connected app makes it easy to control your iDevices Switch from wherever you are without logins or hubs. The Switch is great for lamps, fans, holiday lights, small heaters, electric fireplaces and much more.

    Simple setup

    Installation and connecting to Wi-Fi is quick and easy with the iDevices Connected app and Apple HomeKit technology. There's no need for hubs or logins.

    Use Siri voice commands

    The iDevices Switch responds to Siri, letting you control your home directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

    Create "scenes"

    Control multiple products with a single Siri voice command that activates a particular pre-set "scene". For example, "Hey Siri, turn on my going to bed scene" might turn on your bedroom humidifier and turn off your nightstand lamp.

      Poor Product

      I have 8 of the switch products. When they work, they work well. However the half life of working well for any given switch is 1-2 days. When it goes south, I have 8 of the switch products. When they work, they work well. However the half life of working well for any given switch is 1-2 days. When it goes south, you get a "No Response" message from the HomeKit app. Once this occurs, no amount of software attempts will restart it. You have to find the switch, unplug it from the wall, wait 30 seconds, and then plug ti back in. I have yet to go more than a single day before one of the switches goes into "No Response" mode. This results in effectively zero reliability, which is pretty much worthless. The rest of the house is still Insteon based, and those products continue to work well and be reliable. Maybe iDevices can find some solution, but without out, the entire lot is going back.

      They lose their connection half the time

      These are great when they work. But the problem is they return "no response" half the time. Making them useless.

      Does not work well

      Easy setup (RTFM) and works great - even in Costa Rica

      I was frustrated trying to set this up initially - and finally broke down and read the brief instructions. Just had to push one button on the device and then i I was frustrated trying to set this up initially - and finally broke down and read the brief instructions. Just had to push one button on the device and then it was a piece of cake. I use it with an Apple Airport Extreme router (it automatically chose the correct band, while my computers etc. stayed on the faster one) and an Apple TV G4 and can control it from work or even from another country. I have it set up to turn the lights on shortly before I arrive home on week days on schedule, then from upstairs at bedtime I tell Siri to turn them off. No problems whatsoever, even with dodgy electric supply and internet connection in Costa Rica. And I can move it from one lamp to another one without losing any of the settings. Now I'm trying to figure out where I could use another one. Highly recommended.

      They work great!!

      I have 6 of the switches, 4 in-wall light switches and 1 in-wall plug. They all work great. Very little time to install and set up. Have had no problems at all I have 6 of the switches, 4 in-wall light switches and 1 in-wall plug. They all work great. Very little time to install and set up. Have had no problems at all. Use the iDevice app to set up and then use Home to turn on or off. I use the schedule function on the iDevice app the do all my schedules. Easier than the Home app. Would highly recommend all the iDevice items.

      Reliable and easy

      I've had 6 of them for more than 8 months now. Very reliable and easy to set up.
