Frequently asked question

Will i be able to say, 'good morning siri' and have the two thermostats set to separate temperatures i've already programmed them for?

Hi Mike, In order to complete this task you will need to create a scene named 'Good Morning' and attach actions for each of your Thermostats. Actions would be changing the temperature or mood, etc. Once you have done that you will be able to say 'Good Morning Siri' and have your two Thermostat's change to the program… see more Hi Mike, In order to complete this task you will need to create a scene named 'Good Morning' and attach actions for each of your Thermostats.

Can I pair Instant Switch with two wall switches

I don’t believe you can. But if you are using Apple HomeKit. You can join the two iDevices wall switches together to appear as one. Then pair the iDevices instant switch to one of those wall switches and they would all function together.

does this need a neutral wire?

Yes, neutral is required. Love these switches.

We don't have a C wire but read we can use the G wire. Is this true?

I contacted the HVAC company that installed my furnace. They were able to tell me which wire was the Common. I only had a four wire thermostat so I had to run a new five wire cable. I was able to run the 50 feet of wire and hook everything up in under an hour. They did NOT recommend the jumper wire as described in … see more I contacted the HVAC company that installed my furnace. They were able to tell me which wire was the Common.

    which means international shipping for people like me, who live on the other side of ...

    his is the latest piece of tech loveliness by the iDevices team, and while it has been on sale for over a month now, it has only been available to US & Canadian customers – either via the iDevices website or Amazon. However, Amazon has now started directly selling it themselves, which means international shipping for people like me, who live on the other side of the world (Taiwan, since you’re asking). This is the reason for my late entry into reviewing this particular item.
    Ok, so with that out of the way, the other important thing to take on is that technically speaking, this isn’t an actual HomeKit device, so should it be here on this site? Well yes, as most of the iDevices range IS HomeKit compatible, and this is able to directly control these devices in a very simple and efficient way. So, my logic is that if it can control at least one HomeKit device, then in theory you could create an automation that allows this switch to control other devices via the original iDevice it controls. That’s the logic, and I’m sticking to it!
    The switch arrived in a nicely discreet, brand-conscious box, with iDevices’ now recognisable purple & black colour scheme. As soon as I took it out of the parcel it arrived in I could tell it was well packaged. inside the box you initially just see the switch itself, covered by a protective clear plastic tray, but within the back part of the packaging you will find a rather comprehensive installation and setup guide, a pvc bag containing two sets of screws, an earthing wire (more on that later) and two adhesive 3M Commandstrips.
    Once you start to take apart the device for battery replacement and perhaps removing the switch and relocating it to another location, you become aware of the intricate details that have been put into the switch. There’s a rather small but useful spirit level on the top of the inner plate to aid you in placing the switch on the wall straight. If you need to move the device, there a small removable tab at the bottom of the inner plate that gives you access to the non-sticky part of the 3M command strip that allows you to easily remove it from the wall, so there’s no need to try prizing it from the side of the switch with a kitchen knife like you would the Philips Hue Dimmer Switch, for example. The battery compartment is also accessible quite easily with two tabs that you press in from the sides.
    iDevices have made it so that you can have this stuck directly to a wall with the provided faceplate, or amongst other switches with a 2 or 3 slot faceplate. They’ve thoughtfully provided an earth wire in the event that if you place it with other switches that are directly wired, there’s no chance of an issue with electrical problems or accidents. If you’re sticking this directly to a blank wall like myself then the wire isn’t needed, but its a thoughtful little touch.
    Setting up the switch in the app is very straightforward, using a Bluetooth connection, but you’re advised to make sure the firmware on the device you’re going to pair the switch with is up to date. I plan to pair the switch with my iDevices Smart Socket, which to me is the most obvious and useful reason for having this switch, I have the Smart Socket in a ceiling lamp in the entrance to the main bedroom and it’s far too high up for me to reach the switch that is placed on the body of the socket itself, and whilst I can control the Smart Socket with my iPhone, I don’t want to have to pull out my phone every time just to turn this particular socket on or off when I walk into the room, and if guests use the apartment, chances are they’ll not have an iPhone and will tend to use the standard wired light switch, which will disconnect the Smart Socket from HomeKit anyway.
    One could argue that it would be better to have a HomeKit compatible switch that could work with other devices and not just it’s own brand, but actually when you look at the market now, the only non-hardwired switch that is also designed for wall mounting is the Hue Dimmer, and that requires the Hue Bridge, and it has dimming capabilities like the Hue too, so this is the best and cheapest alternative, at least for me and my needs right now. iDevices have their reasons for not making this HomeKit compatible, and I’m sure it has been looked at but as it stands, it’s not.
    Besides my use case, it’s quite handy for iDevices lights or switches that themselves might be hard to reach, or you could simply use it as an additional wall switch to go with one of your hardwired iDevices switches without having to do lots of wiring should you not already have a switch in place.
    I’ll admit that when it first came out I was a bit skeptical and wasn’t really sure what it would be able to do for me, but as it happens I’ve come around to the idea, and as I’m a fan of the iDevices range in general, it was an easy purchase once I’d realised its potential.

    Solid Homekit wifi switch

    These wall Switches work great. When they were released early this year, I bought one from the iDevicies website. It worked so well, that I went back to buy 2 more for a 3 way application. For reference, I’m using my IOS devices with the latest operating system installed. I have not tried using Android to install, configure, and use, so I don’t know how well that works. Before you buy this switch, there are a few things you should know up front. First, this light switches need a neutral wire in order to work. If you don’t have a neutral wire, this switch is not for you. Instead, I would recommend the Lutron product instead. The Lutron switches do not require a neutral wire. Second, the picture on Amazon product page is misleading. The picture shows that this switch supports energy monitoring, when in reality, it does not. You cannot track the energy usage with this switch. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to, with a firmware upgrade, but right now, there is no energy monitoring in this switch. Third, a faceplate is not included with this switch. 4th, this is just a light switch and not a dimmer switch. Lastly, the instruction manual includes a warning that says metal switch boxes will hamper the signal coming from the switch. Thus, if you switch boxes are not plastic, you might have Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connectivity issues. Your mileage may vary in this case. My switch boxes are all plastic, so I didn’t run into any issues here.
    Installation of a single pole switch is pretty straightforward. The included documentation explains how to install the switch for a single pole installation very well. it’s really a one to one replacement with the existing wires, however, if working with electricity is not your thing, I would suggest hiring an electrician, especially for a 3 and 4 way application as those can be very tricky. The single switch is connected to my fireplace and this makes it really convenient to turn on the fireplace either from the app or using Alexa. I’ve been using this switch for more than 3 months and it’s been working great ever since it was installed. Once installed, you can immediately use the switch as a normal switch, meaning turning it on and off works without having to enable Wi-Fi, or anything else. Once you enable Wi-Fi, you can control the switch from anywhere inside, or outside your home.
    My 3 way configuration controls a light going downstairs to my basement. There is a light switch at the top of the stairs and one at the bottom of the stairs that were changed out for these new light switches. In a 3 way, or 4 way, application, one switch is the master, and all other switches are slaves. The master is connected to the switch box where the load is coming into. Basically, the Master is directly connect to the wires that control the light. In a 3 or 4 way, or N way, you will probably need a voltage meter to test the wires to figure out which of your current switches boxes is directly connect to the light to find out which is the master. Once the Master is determined, any other light switch, connect to that light, is a slave. And as with the single installation, the switch on the master can immediately control the light by turning it on and off from the switch itself. For a 3-4 – N way, all switches in the 3- 4 – N way need to be replaced with one of these iDevices switches. Your old switches cannot be used in any way.
    Slaves do not use traveler wires to communicate with the master. They use Bluetooth. The included instructions describe how to connect a slave switch to the master, via Bluetooth, and disable the traveler wires. The use of Bluetooth is noteworthy because if there is significant obstruction between the master and the slaves, then the Bluetooth signal might not reach the master from the slave(s). In my case, the switches are not on opposite sides of the door, therefore, there is no obstruction to deal with. In addition, I installed the Elgato Motion Detector, above the door, to automatically turn the light on and off, and that works great as well. Since the switch uses Wi-Fi to communicate with Homekit, as long as you have good Wi-Fi coverage in your house, the switch will be accessible to any other Homekit application in your home. The switches seem well built and well thought out. I have even installed these switches in a 4 way configuration, in my neighbor’s house, without issue. The directions for a 3 way and 4 way are pretty clear. However, the color coding of the wiring in your home might be different from those in the diagrams that are supplied. So, it’s important to read the description in order to match up the colors represented in the iDevices diagrams to the colors of the wires in your house. A volt meter to find which switch box the load is coming into will definitely helpful in a 4 way configuration. If the switch needs to be rebooted, there is a button, on the exterior of the switch, that can be pushed to reboot it. Installing these switches can be a tight fit. So, pushing them into the switch boxes, so that they could be flush with the wall can be a challenge. Also, unlike Lutron switches, which have break away tabs to help make the face plate fit flush, the iDevices switches do not have these breakaway tabs. So, this make getting all the wires in the switch box positioned nicely all the more important.
    Each switch also has a night light, that can be controlled separately, like all the other iDevices products. Amazon Alexa also works great. If you have any of the other iDevices products, setting up Alexa to work with this switch follows the same paradigm. The one big negative is that the switch costs $100. However, for the price, the user gets a switch that can be placed in a 3 way, 4, way, or N way configuration with relative ease. Also, you get to control the switch from outside your home, without the need of an Apple TV. But again, with that said, the $100 price tag is not insignificant. If you do the math, and buy 3 or 4 of these switches, then the difference between the iDevices solution and going with a cheaper manufacturer, and using a hub, becomes close to equal. So some financial due diligence to check the breakeven point among all these solutions, with and without a hub, will have to be done based on how many of these switches that need to be installed.
    While I’d give the hardware 5 stars, I find the app still hard to use and would give it 3 stars. The UI can be inconsistent in some places and I find it really confusing in others. The app has a feature where you can temporary disable a schedule, but when you do that, the schedule just disappears and can’t be easily found to enable again. There are a few other things like that which makes the app difficult to figure out. But the hardware is solid and I have not experienced any disconnects from Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, since I have been using them. I would recommend buying this Homekit wall switch.
