    Default iDevices Announces its Upcoming HomeKit-Enabled Switch Smart Plug


    The folks over at iDevices today recently announced their upcoming product, the Switch smart plug, a HomeKit-enabled device which allows users to remotely control a variety of devices around their home. The system utilizes the existing iDevices Connected app to give users control over the plug which plugs into a standard electrical outlet and connects to the home’s WiFi network to provide control over a device plugged into the Switch.

    By utilizing the HomeKit integration for Switch, users will be able to take advantage of several iOS features in the system including the ability to use Siri to control their devices. Furthermore, it should be noted that Switch doesn’t require any dedicated hub device or subscription services which makes it very simple to set up and use. The following are some of the features that the Switch HomeKit integration provides:

    - Siri – Switch’s HomeKit integration provides an easy, secure way to control Switch using Siri on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. You can even create your own commands to control multiple home settings. For example, you can automatically turn off lamps connected to your iDevices Switch, lock your doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat to the desired temperature, all with one command.

    - Remote Access – iDevices designed a custom IoT cloud for Switch so that users can access their home from wherever they are with no additional hub required.

    - Create Custom Events and Schedules – Through the iDevices Connected app, users are able to design custom events (or schedules) that fit their lifestyle. The iDevices Switch has the unique ability to remember events and make sure they happen even when the user is away.
    Other interesting features that Switch offers are the slew of personalization options which include the ability to upload photos from around the home to personalize the control app and make it easier to identify devices. There is also a built-in highlight on the Switch itself with customizable color choices.

    You can check out a video of the product below:



    Those of you interested in purchasing Switch can do so when it is released later in the first half of 2015. The device will set you back $49.99 (plus tax).
