Quality


I'm now quite happy with this product.

Positive Review

Great for renters who don't want to mess with the existing wiring in the apartment.

Positive Review

The product will always return an error from google saying check network settings.

Negative Review

So far, i use my google mini and the smartlife app in conjunction with the third reality app to voice control every switch.

Negative Review

Overall i am pretty happy with the look and function of this switch.

Neutral Review

The switch's mechanism works well, both echo and the app works to toggle off the light.

Neutral Review

Price


The only drawback i saw is the price.

Positive Review

I’m only doing switches of high interest over all because i feel the price reflects a device with a little more care into aesthetic design.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


Again don't waste your time or money on the switchmate.

Negative Review

Competitiveness


Using for a fireplace which is powered with a thermopile so a normal smart switch solution was going to require some additional wiring.

Positive Review

Updated following developer update:the product now works with our google hubs and no longer returns the error.

Negative Review

(original review)the adapter plate for the toggle switch is designed horrible.

Negative Review

I wanted a smart switch for my well pump but it's a 240v switch.

Neutral Review

So i wanted to try and contact the switchmate company for assistance.

    This product doesn't replace your switch.

    Dependable switch, with app or alexa usage


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Hardest thing was getting the switch to connect with my phone.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Echo 3rd gen has a different power supply that is not compatible with the hub and/or connector accessories, so you would have to use a stand alone setup where the hub is just plugged into the wall if you have a power adapter.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Yes, this does operate through alexa but it must go through the hub, setup an account with thirdreality app(non-paying), and connect that account through the alexa app via the thirdreality skills.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The app should “discover” the device(s) once that is done.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I originally bought it without the hub hoping it would just connect to alexa and it didn't.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Returned the original and purchased the combo.
