Hey guys

We spent time this summer, updating the Android app for Switchbox, so it aligns with the Iphone/Ipad app and offers the same features. Happy to help, and you can download for free here.


Enjoy your switchbox this winter, and make sure to get your internal SIM cards in order before the cold season is here.

The SwitchBox

The easiest, cheapest and safest way to remote control any electrical device.

For Pilots: No more driving to the airport hours before a flight. Turn on your Engine Heater from your cellphone, and simplify your cold flying routine! TIP: Activate a 2nd device like a Cabin Heater for your sensitive avionics, or a Coffee Maker before you arrive!

For General Use: Your new 'Smart Home' with the easy automation from SwitchBox. Remote control your heating, lighting and air conditioning, from anywhere in the world. TIP: Turn On the A/C before you get home, or check to see if you left the lights On and turn them Off.
