Rocker switch operation


Edited: Feb 3, 2018

Just wanted to know if I need 1 or 2 switchbots to toggle the upper rocker switch from 'constant' (shown) to 'timed' and back. The switch is about 3cm long and protrudes from the timer about 8mm when out. That would be fine. I'm guessing it would be impossible to switch to the middle 'off' position which requires the rocker to be exactly half way. Many thanks for a superb product idea.

Hi Chris,


Sorry to say that SwitchBot was not designed to stop at the half-way.


You might try to insert some more sticker between SwitchBot and the machine, and turn on add-on mode so SwitchBot can push and lift the button up. But the surface might be too small then we need some tricky ways.

Thanks for the reply. It's not a problem being unable to get the half way 'off' position. Switching to 'timed', with the timer set to not switch on, effectively switches off. The switchbot and its app can perform any timed switching when needed.

    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 ??
