    A simple on/off switch

    • Written by Nigel G from HORNCHURCH

    I purchased one of these and now I'm going to get another one. I am using the first as simple programmable switch to power a table lamp and replace an old unreliable electronic timer. They are quite expensive for a switch, but the convenience of being able to quickly change the on and off times make them useful.

    I recommend that the first time you set up timers is to use the Eve app and not the Apple HomeKit app as I had problems with the latter and the lamp not turning off when they it was supposed to. The Eve app take a bit of getting used to, but try to learn how it works and you will be successful. The only advantage of the HomeKit app at the moment is being able to set a timer at sunset and sunrise. I would like to see this feature extended to, for example, switch on at 30 minutes prior to sunset. There is no technical reason why this could not be achievable.

    Super easy setup, works just as you would expect!

    After getting Phillips Hue lights I became obsessed with HomeKit enabled accessories. Being Christmas time, I decided to get two of these switches to plug my Christmas trees into so I wouldn't have to go downstairs or upstairs to turn them off when I'm cozy in bed. The setup could not have been easier, simply plug them in, download the app, put in the serial number of the device and done. Works great with Siri and HomeKit. Now I say "Hey Siri, turn off my Big Christmas Tree" and she does! Love this!
