Convert just about any deadbolt into a smart lock, retrofit a curtain to make it smart, monitor temperature and humidity in areas important to you, transform just about any rocker switch or button of any appliance into something much smarter, and much more!

What additional hardware is required?
A Switchbot Hub will be needed to activate cloud communication.

Known Limitations
There is a limit of 10,000 API calls per day. This includes commands triggered from Control4 and also polling. Going over this limit will mean the cloud will stop responding to requests. Please refer to our Installation and Usage guide for recommendations on polling times.
