iDevices Switch – HomeKit (Siri) Review

By   May 18, 2016

You probably remember those “clap on, clap off” lights? This technology gave homeowners the ability to control bedroom, kitchen, or living room lights, by clapping their hands together. Well, now with all the technology that is available, how would you like to have complete control over all of your electronic devices? That is exactly what the iDevices switch can do for you. All you need to make this happen is the iDevice switch, an iPhone, and an existing Wi-Fi connection.

The installation process is very simple and all you need to do is plug it into an 110v electrical outlet, download the associated app, pair the device with the existing Wi-Fi router, and complete the setup. Once your electronics are plugged into the switch, you can control and manage them from anywhere in the world. For instance, if you want your living room lamp on before you arrive home, all you need to do is access the iDevices app and remotely turn it the lamp on. You can also adjust the brightness, change colors, and set it to a schedule. Create a night or wakeup scene for your children and toss the alarm clock in the trash bin.

However, that is not all you can do with the iDevices switch. You can also control your electronic devices without even picking up your app enabled iPhone. This is possible, because the iDevice switch is integrated with the Apple HomeKit. All you have to do is say, “Siri, turn on my lamp” and your wish will be granted.

Overall Assessment

Overall, the iDevices switch is very easy to install, just plug it into any 110v receptacle and complete the pairing and setup processes. The iDevices app has a very user friendly interface and it is filled with innumerable features that will enhance any electrical device that is plugged into it. The only downside that can be found is the fact that Siri only works, when you are at home, unless you own an Apple TV.
