How many people can control one SwitcheOn Power Control?

  • As many as you want
  • New users can scan the device directly, or the code from another user
  • Share with as many users as you like!

Will it work in my hangar, barn or warehouse?

Most likely, yes. The vast majority of SwitcheOns are installed in metal buildings and work perfectly right out of the box. About 2% of users require larger antennas. If you have signal issues, contact us and we’ll help you chose a correct antenna.

Is there coverage in my area?

You can check coverage with Verizon on the following website:

Uncheck everything except LTE-M

Verizon Coverage

 

If you purchase a SwitcheOn and find that coverage is not available, we’ll gladly refund your money. To date, not a single customer has taken us up on this.

What cellular technology does SwitcheOn use? Is it going to stop working?

SwitcheOn uses LTE-M, which was created as part of the recent 5G allocation.

It is expected to be in operation for at least another decade.

Is it available in Canada?

SwitcheOn operates on the Telus network in Canada and is available now! Please email stephen@iocanada.com to purchase for the Canadian market.

How do I setup my SwitcheOn Power Switch?

  • Download the mobile app
  • Plug in your Power Switch
  • Scan the QR code displayed on the unit

How do I use my SwitcheOn Power Control?

  • Open the SwitcheOn Power Control mobile app
  • Toggle the switch

I scanned the QR on my new Power Switch 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.

  • 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.

  • If you are unsure about any part of these instructions, consult an electrician.

    This thing just works. Had it for a couple years now and it’s by far the most elegant solution for preheating your aircraft. Mine is installed in an all metal hangar where the cell signal is poor on the OUTSIDE, and it’s been 100% reliable.

  2. Dave

    It works great! We’ve had it for two winter sessions. it controls our 182 engine heater. With the app we can also see the temperature in the hanger. Had a problem with the first one we got. Sean was great about what the issue was and got us a replacement promptly. Looking at getting another for a different application.

  3. Kelly (verified owner)

    This is one of the best products for the hangar in aviation! While the airport has WiFi, it’s too far from the general aviation hangars for a WiFi switch to pick up. This switch operates on cellular and so long as there is a cellular signal, it works. Now I can turn on my engine pre-heat before getting to the airport (or even my cabin preheat) and the plane’s motor and/or cabin can be warm and ready for service. 10 out of 10! On a side note, I exceeded the 1800w capacity and burnt one of the fuses in the unit, after an email, my unit was repaired and sent back to me… EXCELLENT customer service! A new feature in the app allows for a timer to countdown and turn off – innovation at its best!

  4. joseph perez (verified owner)

  5. paco

    This is what we have been waiting for in the cold weather areas. Wow, wow and wow. Easily set up and very affordable. Get one before they are terminally back ordered!

      I hope we don’t end up terminally back-ordered!

  10. Jim W. (verified owner)

    This is the remote switch we’ve been waiting for! No more trips to the airport the day before you plan to fly in order to plug in the timer. Great product and great support.

  11. Gordon VS (verified owner)

    This is just a great idea that was much needed to make it easier to fly in cold weather. Just unboxed it and it works flawlessly. Can’t wait to set it up. Had some questions for support that Sean quickly answered on a Saturday.

  12. David H (verified owner)

    I had a tech problem-Sean was GREAT in helping me. I’ll reinterate exactly what Chuck said!

  13. Chuck Henze (verified owner)

    Rare customer service in this day and age. Supplier problems caused a shipping delay. They kept me up to date every step of the way. This is very easy to set up and use. It’s what you’ve been waiting for. Buy it!
