      Super convenient

We've explored a couple of the more advanced features like the timer and automation settings, but our favorite feature is definitely using Siri to control the light. We use it every night and the sheer convenience will never get old. No more asking my wife if she's ready for me to turn the light off. We just get in bed and one of us commands the light off. Pretty cool. I can't imagine going back to a normal lightswitch.

      Good but not perfect

      I've had this product since it was released and I can say it is nice having Siri control my lights, I just wish is was faster. Since the device relies on bl I've had this product since it was released and I can say it is nice having Siri control my lights, I just wish is was faster. Since the device relies on bluetooth to receive commands there is a delay from when you request an action and the action actually occurs. It's usually about 3 to 5 secs so its not that bad. However, there are times that Siri fails because it takes so long to happen that she gives up saying she's "unable to communicate to with your devices". To make it worse, the light then usually turns on anyway. In my opinion this device would be better if it used wifi to connect like the iDevices light switch does.

      Works perfectly!

      When looking for an automated switch I could use to control my outside lights, I researched several different ones and this one is the best on the market. Most When looking for an automated switch I could use to control my outside lights, I researched several different ones and this one is the best on the market. Most competitors are not compatible with "Apple Home Kit" which was something I looked for in home automation and ease of use. I want to control all my devices (lights, switches, etc.) from one location and not cross over several apps to achieve this. This switch was simple to install and works great with Apple Home Kit and the Apple Home app. Set up was simple through the Apple Home app and the switch does exactly as advertised. My outside lights now come "ON" at sunset and "OFF" at sunrise. There are several different user options for automation other than my choice above. One lacking feature for this switch is the ability to use as a dimmer switch or 3-pole installation.

      Inconsistant homekit connection

      The switch was easy to install and I enjoyed using while it worked. However after about 2-3 weeks, the switch disconnected form homekit and was not controllable The switch was easy to install and I enjoyed using while it worked. However after about 2-3 weeks, the switch disconnected form homekit and was not controllable through HomeKit or the eve app. I attempted to disconnect the eve switch and then reconnect it to my HomeKit, and this worked for about 2 days. No matter how many times I attempt to re-install the switch into HomeKit it still fails. Not a very effective switch for HomeKit, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
