Switchmate is a sleek, minimalist lighting device that magnetically snaps on to any standard 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 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 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, restart Switchmate app.
  2. Turn Bluetooth off and then back on.
  3. Reset Switchmate by removing the AA batteries from the back of your unit, then reinstall the batteries.

Move other Switchmate devices 5 feet away from the device you are trying to connect.

Turn Bluetooth off and then back on to ensure Bluetooth isn't getting stuck pairing.

  1. Check the Switchmate Clock
    The Switchmate clock is synchronized with your Smartphone. If two Smartphones are connected to the same Switchamate, the Switchmate will sync up its clock with the last Smartphone connected.
  2. Check Light Switch
    Check that Switchmate is securely attached to the light switch and verify that it is able to turn the light switch on/off properly.

  1. Switchmate must be in the OFF position for the Welcome Home Feature to initially engage.
  2. Check that Switchmate is securely attached to the light switch

Close all apps and re-launch the Switchmate App, and try turning Bluetooth off back on.

The ▲Top arrow on the back of Switchmate should point to the same direction as the Up/On position of your light switch.

On the back of the Switchmate, you will find ON and OFF labels. Your Switchmate must be in the OFF position for your Welcome Home feature to operate properly.

You can expect your Switchmate order to ship within 2-5 business days of your order while we are transitioning into full release.
