Unique solutions for unique value

Smart homes were traditionally associated with expensive and complicated installations. Then, over the past five years, cheaper and less complicated solutions have appeared on the market. However, they have some disadvantages. To work, they require a central unit or intermediary device that makes possible the communication between the user and the controller.

BLE-Switchbox devices do not require any such additional equipment – a simple Wi-Fi network is enough. After connecting the device with the home network, it can be controlled from anywhere in the world without complicated configuration. Users can start with one lamp or roller shutter controller and then extend their smart home solution as and when the need arises.
