I have an old home security system with a wireless remote. Sometimes in my morning haze I arm the system incorrectly and my dog sets off the motion alarm. I had no ability to remotely turn off the alarm and had to run off to shut it off. Or sometimes I run downstairs forgetting the system is armed setting off the alarm. Not anymore with Switchbot. Best part the box the Smarthub comes with fits my remote and created the shelf I needed to mount the switchbot to.
With the alexa/IFTTT integration now when I wake up in the morning. I say the magic words "Alex trigger morning" and my bedroom lights turns on, and the switchbot disarms the house alarm as well.
