In 2014, the US Environmental Protection Agency concluded in a report that consumers could reduce energy usage up to 30% by using smarter automation s chedules for programmable devices.
In 2017, the team that created Switchur were still struggling to implement cloud based home automation routines that aggregated all of the necessary d ata, from sensors and services, to evaluate and determine the right action to take at the right time.
Switchur is a completely free extension for IFTTT, Zapier, and Microsoft Fl ow allowing you to create automation routines that can assess multiple data points, sensors, events and triggers, before determining the course of act ion. A tailor-made logic builder and expression engine provides our users w ith the ultimate in automation control.
What is Switchur?
Within Switchur you have the option to create Switchboard items and Automat ions. Switchboard items are near real-time connections to your smart sensor s and services by way of IFTTT, Zapier, and/or Microsoft Flow, and more. You can create a Switchboard item to keep track of anything, for example; y our location, your partners location, the time of day, the temperature insi de your house, weather conditions, motion detection, weekend vs weekday, li ght sensors, and so on.
What can I use it for? Using Switchur, you create Automations to evaluate any combination of Switc hboard items. For example, you could :
Create an automation to turn on the living room smart lights when it's "dar k outside" AND either "your home" OR "your partner is home" Automate the smart coffee machine to brew at different times depending on w hether it's "weekend vs weekday" AND "your home" AND "you've no early appoi ntments" Have your Roomba commence the cleaning cycle when "it is a weekday" AND "yo ur not home" AND "your partner is not home" Switchur is extremely flexible and allows you to automate anything exactly the way you want.
