I scanned the QR on my new SwitcheOn and it isn't online yet

  • SwitcheOn’s included year of service begins the first time the device is scanned. On first scan, we activate the built-in SIM and provision the service.
  • This usually happens in seconds, but can occasionally take up to 15 minutes.
  • If after waiting 15 minutes, the device has not provisioned, please un-plug and re-plug the box. This will force it to immediately try connecting again.
  • After the intial activation, SwitcheOn should connect within 1 minute after being powered up.

My box goes offline at night

  • SwitcheOn depends upon your local Verizon cellular network.
  • Cellular signals travel differently at night and in different temperatures and humidity levels.
  • If your box operates correctly during the day and not at night, a larger antenna might be necessary.
  • Contact us for advice on chosing a proper antenna. There are plenty of inexpensive options available and we’re here to help.


  • SwitcheOn is not intended to be permanently wired to any electrical system.
  • Unplug the unit for any servicing required. You run the risk of electric shock if you do not do so.
  • Misuse of this device can cause fire, personal injury, property damage or death.
  • Read the Warnings and Instructions provided with this product before use.
  • SwitcheOn must be installed and or used in accordance with appropriate electrical codes and regulations.
  • To avoid damage, do not exceed the maximum load (15A). If this value is exceeded, the SwitcheOn will be damaged and no longer function.
  • Before using the SwitcheOn with multiple devices, ensure that the electrical circuit into which the unit is plugged has sufficient capacity to handle the electric circuit load of the multiple devices.
  • If you are unsure about any part of these instructions, consult an electrician.

How does SwitcheOn handle power outages?

  • When power returns, SwitcheOn remembers what to do.
  • All outlets will return to the state they were in when power was interrupted.
  • Automations will be reloaded, but if an alarm has been missed, it will not run late for safety reasons.

How does SwitcheOn handle poor reception?

  • The Switcheon box communicates with our server every minute. Even in marginal coverage, these messages will occasionally get through. All that is required for positive control is a single message transfer.
  • Switcheon’s automations are automated in the box itself. Programmed automations will continue to function whether cellular is available or not.

How widespread are NB-IoT and LTE-M?

  • Several carriers have rolled out one or the other nationwide in the US
  • Our testing has shown reliable service even in very remote areas

How is SwitcheOn service managed?

  • The first year of service is included with every new SwitcheOn.
  • Subsequent years are $50
  • There are no sim cards to manage, maintain or refill.
  • The app will prompt for payment information when you’re nearing expiration.
  • Payment information can be entered in advance and the device will automatically renew at expiration.
