Switch Living - Integrate Smart Home Technologies

With Switch you can control Arlo, Ring, HomeKit and SmartThings devices easily. Automations are seamless, even with IFTTT and other cloud-based services. Configuration is meant to be done by users, not specialists. Switch does not require any additional hardware or software like ‘homebridge’ to integrate different home automation technologies. Beyond device control and home automation, Switch also offers an intelligent and powerful alarm system, to make your life safe and seamless.

If you have a SmartThings hub, you will love Switch for its easiness and the powerful alarm system. If you have Arlo or HomeKit devices, you will love Switch for the powerful routines and the alarm system. And if you use Arlo, Ring, SmartThings and HomeKit in parallel, you will love the seamless integration between these without any need for additional local technology.

You can manage one or multiple homes with Switch and organize your devices in spaces, if you wish. Each device can belong to one or multiple spaces – or none. And each space and each home can be assigned a picture for easy recognition and enhanced beauty.

You can easily see the current status of each device and change it with just one touch. A long touch brings you to details of the device. That not only works for the device list on the home screen, but on all screens, including the spaces and the favorite screens.

Routines make it easy to control multiple devices with just one touch – or schedule device changes or have devices change their status upon certain events. Switch supports the following routines:
- ‘Switch manually’ – control multiple devices in one touch - and toggle back, if you wish, after a certain time
- ‘Switch on time’ – let devices change their state according to a schedule – that can also be related to sunrise and sunset
- ‘Switch on sensor‘ – let devices change their state upon events that a sensor device defines – and toggle back, if you wish, after a certain time or event
- ‚Switch on IFTTT’ – have a cloud-based service call Switch in order to trigger a device change
- ‚IFTTT on sensor‘ – trigger an action in IFTTT when a device recognizes a defined condition
- ‚Alert on sensor’ – get an alert when a device recognizes a defined condition
- ‚Replay’ – let selected devices repeat what happened one, two or three weeks ago – to automate complex behavior or simulate presence
You can also easily activate and deactivate routines, so that automations are paused whenever you like.

On the favorite screen you can keep your favorite spaces, devices and routines at your finger tip.

You can easily assign your devices to certain alarm functions, e.g. sensors to regions (such as inside and outside) and actors to functions (such as shades or sirens) and that’s all you need to do in order to have a powerful alarm system working for you.
- Switch will alert you when relevant sensors recognize unexpected activity
- Sensors will be activated in function of the alarm mode you chose – and the alarm mode may be updated in function of how you use your devices
- When you arm the alarm system, it will lock selected doors. When you unlock one of these doors, the alarm will be disarmed automatically
- When an outside sensor detects unexpected activity while you are away or sleeping, the defined shades will close to protect your home
- When an inside sensor detects unexpected activity in your home, Switch may activate your selected sirens – but it won’t, if it’s a sensor in your sleeping area, to prevent loud false alarms
- When you are the last to leave home, Switch can remind you to activate the alarm system

Controlling Apple HomeKit accessories through Switch on Android only works, if an iOS device with HomeKit access runs Switch in the foreground. You may consider using an iPod touch, an old iPhone or an iPad as a dedicated Switch device controller where Switch always runs in the foreground.
