Online demo page

We have set up a small online demo page where you can play with our lights :) Follow this link: https://www.sw1tch.me/demo 

Proximity and Touch enabled

sw1tch.me Ena reacts to your hand be detecting its presence in a short radius around the device. You can either touch it or wave your hand very close to it to toggle the lights.

Come Home & Leave home feature

When you have our app installed on your phone, it detects when you connect to your home's wifi network and switches the lights on. This feature can be selected or disabled for every sw1tch.me device with just a press of a button on our app.

Motion detecting lights

Saving energy is very important those days. With the Motion feature, your device becomes a motion detecting light switch. When you enter the room, the sensor detects your presence and turns the lights on for how long you have set it up on our app. After that time, the lights switch off automatically.

Motion detecting alarm and baby monitor

The motion sensor inside the device can also be used as an alarm. Set it in alarm mode from inside our app and it will notify you with a push message when motion is detected in your home. To scare the unwanted intruder off, it will also switch the lights on.

The detecting moiton feature of sw1tch.me Ena lets your device act as a baby monitor. Like the alarm feature it detects movement and send a push message, this time without switching the light on. 

Mobile application

Control, configure all your devices with our app. Everything at your fingertips!

  • Easy login with Social Media: Email, Google, Twitter, Facebook
  • Control unlimited devices
  • All basic functions on one screen
  • Controll all devices at once
  • Enable ComeHome & Leave home for specific devices
  • Receive push notification on alarm and baby monitor mode
  • and many more to come..

AmIHomeOrNot  

Having an alarm that switches the lights on and informs you about intruders is very cool. But it would be better not to go through this process. With the AmIHomeOrNot feature, your lights switch on and off at random times, in order to give the impression of you beeing home.

Future proof

We have made sure that your smart device is OTA updatable. Now that might not sound as something special, we also left room for 2 aditional sensor packs that can be added later. There are 4 pins for one i2c sensor, and 3 pins for an digital sensor. These pins can also be used to switch leds on and off. The possibilities are endles. 

WPS Enabled  

sw1tch.me Ena is WPS enabled so getting started is very easy. After installing, just press the WPS button on your router and the device, pop the facteplate on and you are ready to go. You dont have to enter your wifi password to connect to your network.

Save state 

sw1tch.me Ena remembers the last state it was in, whether it was switched On or Off, in alarm mode or any other mode. After a power outage, the device will bring itself to the same state it was before.

Krack Attack safe

sw1tch.me devices are patched to prevent anouthorised access due to the WiFI Krack Attack vulnerability.

Pop-on faceplates

Every home is defferent, and sticking to just one colour isn't enough. sw1tch.me Ena comes in three different colours, with red and blue glass coming soon. Faceplates can also be bought seperately once the project is funded. Watch out for our special editions!

Risks and challenges

Although we have completed our working prototype, additional funding is necessary to be able to hire more staff and to give the end users a stable "environment" that is evolving. When the time comes, we have to be ready so that production and shipping goes smooth. We have a lot of ideas and energy but sometimes it takes more people to do great things.
