Switchmate is a sleek, minimalist smart lighting device that magnetically snaps on to any standard toggle or rocker light switch, enabling users to control the switch via the Switchmate companion app.

How do I install Switchmate?

Switchmate uses powerful magnets to snap onto the screws of a standard toggle or rocker light switch. Simply snap it into place and connect it to your smartphone.

Switchmate uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your iPhone or Android phone. If your phone is on this list and is either made by Apple or runs Android, Switchmate will work with your phone. Switchmate typically ranges up to 45 m (150 ft) depending on where you are standing.

The app is available on both iOS and Android platforms.

Switchmate will fit most standard Toggle or Rocker light switches.

Switchmate currently does not have WiFi enabled because of decreased battery life. We are working to make Switchmate's capabilities better every day!

The current model of Switchmate uses 2 AA battery and will last 8-12 months.

Open the Switchmate App, then tap the associated device icon.

Different types of phones may behave differently when connecting to Switchmate. When experiencing difficulties connecting to Switchmate, you may try the following steps:
  1. Close the Switchmate app and all other apps and restart the Switchmate app.
