Problem: SwitchBot Hub (Plus) as offline on iOS 12.1.1


Edited: Dec 12, 2018


Dear users,


If you have on iOS 12.1.1, and your Hub (Plus) is always offline? No worry, we are working on it.


The fix is on SwitchBot App 2.8.8. We have done all the work by now, and now it is under Apple's urgent review.


Android users are not affected. iOS users on 12.1.0 and before are not affected.


Please also make sure your App is always up to date.


If any further query, don't hesitate to contact




Problem Details:


Some recent changes in iOS 12.1.1 official release (released on December 5th) affected some services used in SwitchBot App, and around 85% of our iOS users.


We brought new UI design on 2.8.6 (released in late November), including easier recognization of online and offline status. We further brought improvements on 2.8.7 (released on December 12th) to shorten the delay in the online status change. Both changes made the symptom of Hub (Plus) offline "looks" worse.


We made updates in SwitchBot App to adapt changes in iOS 12.1.1, it works well in our recent tests.

    I have a number of different kinds of smart devices assigned to particular rooms in my google home, including switchbots. when I give a specific command for a switchbot, it works fine, but if I give a room level command, such as, turn on all the living room lights, all of the devices in the living room respond, except for the switchbot (even though they are most definitely assigned to that room in Google home). This occurs in every room where I have a switchbot, and all batteries are fine on the switchbots, so this is a program level issue. please tell me how to fix this, or if you are already aware that this is an issue that you are working on currently.

    Hi,there. I'm doubted that even this writings are written on your post :) On the feedback messanger, you guys asked me to upload my firmware info on my app and devices. And I sent you and waited for 4 days(2days if counting business days). Today, I got the message I didnt reply anything. Wow.... A week ago, I firstly post that your device doesn't recognize the basic timer and the things I've been replied are what is your firmware version? and ignoring messages...

    La télécommande freebox semble être une telecommande radio et non IR. Impossible de l’ajouter au hub ??
