Multiple press hold seconds


My device's button utilizes short press and long press.

I want to set both press hold seconds to one switchbot.

Is it possible?

Hi mrturbo,


Sorry to say, no, our current implementation only allows either short-press or long-press mode, not a mix.


We are continously improving the software, and this feature might be implemented in the future.


As a workaround, if there is enough room, you could use 2 SwitchBots with one as short-press mode and the other 1 as long-press mode.

No, there is no space for 2 of them.

Software update would be appreciated.

In addition, multiple click would be nice.

Yes, both are in our road map.

Do you have any certain plan to add those features?


I also want Programmable press.


With one tap on the app, do this: 3 sec press > 1 sec release > 1 click

It is in our road map, and still under development.


The programable press feature involves a complete reconstruction of the Hub firmware, and a complete rebuild of the app UI, so it will take some time.


To be more specific, the Hub firmware reconstruction was roughly completed, and we managed to release a beta version app which supports repetitive action (e.g. press once every 30 seconds for 90 times). This is one step closing to the programable feature you are requesting.


However, our team is focusing on new products these weeks, and this feature will likely have to wait for a few more months.


If you know about coding and Python, you might want to try the open API available on Github. This definitely can meet to your requirements.

This is great! are there any updates on these features @support ? I'm particularly interested in having a sequence - where button 1 is pressed once, then button 2 is pressed 5 times, then button 3 pressed 2 times for instance.

I would love to try the beta app version.

Also where can I find the API on GitHub? A quick search didn't turn anything up.

    Hi. Im hoping to buy a SwitchBot hub + and Meter so I can monitor the temperature in my mother's house from my home. As I'm new to this can I ask some questions: Question 1: If I set up the hub and meter in her house can I see the temperature graph from her meter on my iPhone from anywhere? Question 2: Could we see this on 2 iPhones at the same time ( from several miles away) Question 3: Will the SwitchBot hub + work well with the Huawei B315 router? Please let us know each answer

    I am looking at getting a SwitchBot or two for my home, I currently have a SmartThings Hub, do I need to purchase a SwitchBot Hub to remotely control the SwitchBot or can I use my existing SmartThings Hub?

    It would be really great to add an indefinite 'long press' or 'hold down until off' as the last option on the long press timer. That way it would hold the button down until the switch is set to off instead of a timed interval.
