Home Automation made easy with the Remote IP Switches

Today more and more devices are becoming networked together within the home to automate processes to make your life easier. There seems to be no limit on what can be networked as companies create things like dishwashers that can be activated from remote locations or a fridge that can actually display the contents in real time. These devices are slowly growing in popularity but many are focused on automating processes like turning lights on/off, powering entertainment systems or scheduling other appliances to turn off at specific times. The new Single Outlet IP Switch allows you to easily automate specific processes within your home.

With the Single Outlet IP Switch schedule you can create specific times that a device can be powered up. Take for example a TV in the living room that is supposed to be shut off at a specific time at night. The IP Switch will allow you to make sure this device gets shut off so your children don’t leave the TV on overnight, or connect the IP Switch to a surge protector and control everything in your entertainment center. This is also a great tool while you’re at work if you’ve got a CloudCam to keep an eye out and make sure your teens aren’t watching TV when they should be studying. Simply launch the iOS or Android app and you can easily kill power to the device to make sure they get back on task!

Of course the IP Switch isn’t just limited to your entertainment systems and is also popular to control specific lights within your home. If you’re having a longer than anticipated work day or on vacation the schedule can be used to automatically turn devices on and off throughout the evening to give the persona that someone is actually in the home to deter a possible burglar from targeting your home. In addition to your lights you can hook the IP Switch up to devices like AC units to turn them off if you accidentally left it on when nobody is home. The iOS/Android application has a picture of a light to let you know if an outlet is on and each device can be named so you know exactly what each outlet controls (app pictured above).

The IP Switch can complement existing home automation systems and add in some functionality that isn’t typically offered. One of these features is to ping outbound across the network to detect any loss in connectivity with your router to identify a lockup and reboot it if necessary. We’re sure that you’ll find all sorts of uses for the IP Switches in a home or office application and they can save you time and money if you’ve got to pay technicians to reboot equipment you could easily do right from your smartphone!
