    Turn any thing into a smart thing

    Simple gadget to connect a normal plug into your HomeKit lifestyle. I use this for my Christmas tree and it's so cool to tell Siri, "deck the halls"!

    Would love if it were $15 cheaper, but it has never failed me yet so I guess the price is worth it! Cool product, will be buying again when I need another.

    I love that my pets are never in the dark

    I have a one of these on all of my lights. I love that I can set timers so that my pets aren't in the dark while I'm at work. I loved the switch so much that I also purchased sockets and the outdoor switch. Set up was really easy and it's great seeing how much money my electronics use. It's made me scale back on how long I leave my outdoor lights on.

    Love the night light

    I own the outdoor switch, wall switch, 3x outlet plugs. Everything but the outdoor switch work perfectly. Love the night light option, which I though would be annoying, but the whole family likes the night lights. Had to use the alternative pairing method for one of them but has worked fine since. The outdoor switch needs to be cycled every few days like other reviews mention. Not having a hub sitting around is nice. They are a little pricey but build quality seems good.

    Works great!

    The switch was a breeze to setup with the iDevices app on my phone. The best part is that it automatically shows up on my Home app which allows me to have one place to manage all of my smart home devices.

    I loved this switch so much I ordered their new light switches as well.

    Great product!

    I have 6 of these connected to lights throughout my house. Have set up lights to come on at the time I get up in the morning, and even combined with ecobee motion sensors to turn on lights when someone enters a room. Works great when I leave a light on at home or want to turn a light on in the middle of the night since it's easier to know where my phone is than get to the lamp. Love them!

    Gateway Drug

    I purchased a set of these and an outdoor plug before Christmas to make it easy to schedule my lights and turn them on and off remotely. I had no clue this would lead me to a whole home overhaul. They work fantastically with HomeKit as well as other brands' home automation. Would buy again and will buy more.

    Switch on Switch off

    I Purchased the iDevice Switch to operate my theater rack equipment fan in order to incorporate the fan in my power on scene and have not been disappointed. Purchased on 10/2016. Downloaded the app, ran through setup, received a firmware update, added the device, programmed the scene in Simple Control and have not touched it since. Also of note... I now have illumination in the rack! What a great feature. Love it! Homekit compatible as well! yes...
    The 4 stars, and not 5, from me is based on the click noise when powered up. For me it is a non issue as the switch is located in the equipment room. But for some this could be startling the first couple of engagements! I will add though that It is quieter than the other three I purchased and returned.

    Used to be 5 Stars

    2/25

    Found out today with an upgrade to the app you can not do it remotely. The firmware will not update.
    It has to be done locally. So obviously, if you're on vacation - it won't work. Otherwise, it's a decent product.

    Misleading ads

    The lack of a hub requirement is repeated several times but one IS required if you want to do more than simply turn the switch on and off (and only while in your home).

    DOA Product. Don't buy

    Unfortunately this product was unable to connect to my HomeKit even after doing several resets and wifi dances. Bad product based on this first interaction with iDevices, probably would avoid the company in the future.

    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

    Like all of the other reviewers here, when it works it's great - but it usually doesn't work. Constant disconnects from HomeKit that are solved only by power cycling the device.

    Great once set up.

    This iDevice Switch is not easy to setup, but if you persevere, it is worth it.

    Only in an unsophisticated home network, are you likely to have success following the “simple” instructions. You need to carefully read the specs and ensure your wireless system matches. The company has an online comprehensive manual that you may need to read when it does not set up out of the box. They also have some helpful You Tube videos for when you get stuck. I was able to solve my issues without contacting customer support.

    If your wireless system is password protected (which it should be) your router will not allow you to just connect. That was my case, and after wasting 2 hours trying to figure how to overcome this, I came across the You Tube video that explained how to set up the iDevice to connect to the secure network before going through the written handout directions.

    Once set up it has worked flawlessly.

    Works Great!

    Super easy right out of the box. HINT: Make sure you're NOT on a 5GHz wifi network when setting up. Great product! Works seamlessly with HomeKit.

    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, 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.

    Don't invest in iDevices

    Being a big apple fan I immediately wanted to make my home a smart home using the new IOS 10's Home. I since purchased Lutron, Philips and iDevice (switch). All my Philips hue lights work perfectly and the same for Lutron's switches. The both are perfect. The only trouble I have is with my iDevices switch. I have called iDevices support on 3 occasions now and very little help if any. In fact my most recent call the person took my phone number 3 times and then dropped me but never even tried calling back. Probably no different because each previous occasion I was told my problem is Apple's fault. Apparently only their product is having a latency issue and it's all Apple's fault.
    I decided to return my iDevices Switch.

    No problems

    Seen other negative reviews, but have had no problems. Controlling a light string on my deck for 8 months with no issues.

    HOW TO PAIR the SWITCH when the SWITCH won't PAIR.

    It took me 2 hours to figure this out. I just could not get the Switch to pair with my iphone 5s iOS10. There was no way to upgrade the firmware yet...

    So, i borrowed a second iPad to my iPhone. I put the iPhone in wifi Hotspot mode. Settings -> Personal Hotspot = On.
    Then, I connected the iPad to the iPhones hotspot wifi.
    Next, I ran the iDevices app on the iphone.
    Next, I went to Settings -> Wifi -> and scrolled down until I saw the Switch device name listed. Click on that
    Automagically things started working and connecting.

    Once paired, I was able to update the firmware via the iDevices app.
    That was hard.

    Complete Junk

    I read all of the negative other reviews and thought, "maybe they were just unlucky." Nope. I decided to buy one from the Apple Store to test it out. Every other HomeKit device in my home has set up flawlessly; Philips Hue, Ecobee, August Smart Lock. The iDevices switch simply would not connect to my network. I followed their instructions (which were incomplete) and I used my own intuition, but nothing worked. I'm taking this back to the store tomorrow. I'm surprised that this device was able to get HomeKit approval, and more surprised that Apple actually sells this in the store. Unless significant updates occur, save yourself the hassle of returning it.
