Adhesive wedge?

4 comments

I'm using Switchbot with a computer with a recessed power button. It works if the back of the Switchbot is raised up off the surface more than the front edge. Is there an adhesive wedge available somewhere for affixing it to the front of the computer at an angle?

Hi Frank,

 

Is it possible to share some pictures so we could understand better?

 

Cheers,

Here are the requested pictures, the SwitchBot doesn't press the button in far enough to turn it on unless the back end of the bot is slightly raised up off the surface.

Hi Frank,

 

The max swing angle of the arm is 135 degree.

 

So yes, if the button is too deep to pressed, you might try to 1) adjust the position of SwitchBot; 2) raise the back of the SwitchBot up off the surface more than the front edge.

 

Every SwitchBot comes with an additional spare sticker, which might be doubled up and used for what you needed. Any other double side tape should be able to achieve something similar.

 

Cheers,

SwitchBot Support
