Can the temperature be used to trigger other home kit devices, like a smart switch?
I am looking for a device that measures temperature that can trigger a smart switch attached to a heater when the temperature goes below a certain threshold. Has anyone done this?

No it can not , only motion can be used as a trigger in homekit
You have to use the eve app but for me this is not enough
Apple needs to integrade this in homekit

Yes, if your smart switch is HomeKit compatible, you can use the rule engine of the Eve app to confugure such a rule.
