Works great, Bluetooth not required 24/7
The SwitchBot does exactly what I was hoping it would do- turn on our Breville Barista Express 30 minutes before I wake up so it has time to preheat evenly. I am happy to report that while you do have to download the SwitchBot app and turn on Bluetooth to set up the device, it’s pretty much “set it and forget it” after that and you don’t have to have Bluetooth on 24/7 for it to continue working on whatever schedule you have set. Hope that’s helpful for someone else!10/17/2022Verified Purchase
Works as expected
I bought this Switchbot to turn on my coffee maker via Alexa. Unfortunately I still needed to buy the Hub to do that since the Switchbot only has Bluetooth and doesn’t have a way to communicate with Alexa.
After getting the hub though, getting it paired and connected was quick and easy. The Switchbot has worked flawlessly with Alexa each time I’ve used it.
I understand Switchbot is looking to keep costs low on the unit to exclude Wifi but there isn’t a good reason that I could find why you had to have a Hub to use the Android widget so I’ve taken one star off for that. Otherwise I think Switchbot has a great product here that filled a need that many people didn’t know they could utilize.08/23/2022Verified Purchase
Perfect for a timer on my coffee machine
Got this little bot to turn on my espresso machine before I wake up. Has a schedule or an app that can be used to push the button. Has a couple different modes so it can push a button or stay pressed but doesn’t sync with Google home without a hub which is kind of a bummer.07/15/2022Verified Purchase
works fine, app login name is CASE-SENSITIVE
works fine, connects via bluetooth, so for simple functionality (ie. press the button in the app to make the device work) i don’t think you need to log into the app. other issue is that it won’t work if the device you’re trying to press is a touchscreen, as those screens (like your smart phone) rely on conducting the small electrical charge from your fingers. did some googling, and it’s really not easy to fake that, so i think this is as good as you’re going to get for basically buying an automated finger.
the reason i’m knocking off a star is the app – after creating my account, it booted me off, said i just changed my password (well, i didn’t, i just created it). fine, so i try to log in again, says my sign in info is incorrect. fine, put in my login name to get my username and password reset – says my login name doesn’t exist (email address which i always use). after fiddling with it a couple times, i realized that the login name for the app IS CASE SENSITIVE. are you kidding me? so my username/email with the first letter in caps, is non-existent, but with lowercase, it’s fine. no mention of the login name (not password, but the login name) being case sensitive on the login screen. i see some other reviewers had login issues too, thinking the app simply doesn’t work – your phone probably capitalizes the first letter automatically but perhaps you created the account name with all lowercase. switchbot app devs – ARE YOU KIDDING ME??06/30/2022Verified Purchase
Magic does come in small packages.
What can I say? This little device is like the blackjack up your sleeve, it makes magic happen. Very versatile little device that can be used in some clever little ways. 5 stars from me for sure. Only changes I would make if it were a perfect world would be to make it even smaller but while maintaining the strength of the arm or make a mount for it that is hard connected via screw or something. There are a couple scenarios where I would like to use one but there isnt enough flat mounting space for it to adhere strongly and when it goes to push the button it instead pushing itself right off the wall. Other than that instead of praising it for all the situations and scenarios if is handy for I want to just note my two favorite uses I have employed at the moment.
1. I mounted one at my garage door button. This setup lets me bypass the very finicky MyQ garage opener by putting it within arms reach. Creating a fail safe from locking yourself out or even forgetting your garage keypad code. Also utilizing IFTTT and using a geofence as a trigger I’m able to setup routines to automatically open/close it as I arrive home or leave home. Magic.
2. I mounted one on my PlayStation 5 to be able to turn it on (since for some reason Sony hasn’t quite jumped on board with the whole smart features and automations train). So I have verbal commands to turn on the game room where one command starts the ps5, which in turn turns the tv and the receiver on and sets their inputs, then depending on the temp in the room will turn on the fan and/or the ac, and last but not least all the LED lights to set the mood. Presto…magic.
and those are just two of the many ways this little device can get used. It can turn almost anything smart. Well worth the price in my opinion and they are really durable. I have one that I have put through the ringer with different methods of mounting using glues, super tapes, clamps etc and still it’s little arm comes out everytime so they last.

It works as advertised, but no feedback mechnism to confirm whether the operation is successful.
I have a pool/spa cycling system controlled by a touch panel with soft buttons. The previous owner used them to start/stop the pump, turn on the lights, etc., I tried to automate the pump operation by using switchbot. If it works I would buy a swtichbot hub and program the schedule.
It does attempt to push the button, however it is a hit and miss with about 50% of success rate. Although the holding time is set to 0 second, sometimes the press still triggered the button to immediately respond twice and cancelled the operation, the other times the press simply isn’t hard enough to trigger the operation. I have removed it and now seeking a complete upgrade of the system.
I think swtichbot is still good for some non-essential tasks, but I don’t want the pump to either not turn on or keep running for 24 hours until the next successful push.
Update: The tech support team actively contacted me and asked how they can improve the product, and sent me a hub to improve the connectivity, I truly appreciate their persistence to solve potential issues. I will do more tests and update my feedback. As to my pool equipment, I upgraded the control system to a full automatic system that can be programmed from a panel.04/02/2022Verified Purchase
