iiotsys Isolated IoT Switch

iiotsys™ IoT Switch

A iiotsys™ IoT Switch is part of the home automation (internet of things) devices that allows you to control electronic and electrical devices that are connected to it by turning them either on and off or opening and closing them. Download the Mobile Apps for simple setup, control, cloud scheduling or for more advanced needs free home server software.

The iiotsys™ IoT Switch offers you four different solutions ways depending on your needs:

Stand-alone Mode

Where there is no home or office Wi-Fi network the iiotsys™ IoT Switch acts as an access point and can be controlled directly by connecting to it and using its local built in Web interface, this allows control of connected appliances and electronic devices where there is no existing network.

Local Wifi Mode

Where there is a secure home or office Wi-Fi network but no internet connection the iiotsys™ IoT Switch connects to your home or office Wi-Fi network and can be setup and controlled using the Mobile App or the Web interface built into the iiotsys™ IoT Switch, this allows control of connected appliances and electronic devices where there is a local Wi-Fi network with no internet connection.

Cloud Mode

The iiotsys™ IoT Switch connects to a secure cloud platform using your Home or Office Wi-Fi router and waits for messages that control it. The Mobile App loaded on your phone securely connects securely to the Cloud platform using either your home, office or 3G/4G/LTE internet connection and passes control messages to your iiotsys™ IoT Switch. This allows control of connected appliances and electronic devices from your home or office and from the internet.

Home Automation Mode

The iiotsys™ IoT Switch integrates seamlessly into openHAB home automation server, this allows for creation of control panels throughout your home or office and can be extended to enable voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google Home. This allows control of connected appliances and electronic devices, as in the cloud mode, but now extends control to include all the benefits of home automation server controls and rules.

FAQs

How does the switch control devices?

The IN-LINE model powers appliances connected to it and the ISOLATED model provides a pair of contacts that can be open (off), closed (on), pulsed (on for one second then automatically turns off).

What is the difference between the models?

The IN-LINE model can be used for lights, geysers, pool motors and generally any electrical appliance.
The ISOLATED model can be used for garage doors, driveway gates, alarm systems and generally any electronic device that needs a simple open, close or pulse signal.

What more can we offer?

We provide a free secure cloud platform, Mobile App’s and home automation server software that can also be voice control enabled. We provide you the ability with just an investment in the iiotsys™ IoT Switch to grow your solution from an app into a full-blown home automation solution that still seamlessly integrate with the original Mobile App’s. As we develop and add more features these are passed onto you at little or no cost.

What technologies are used to control the iiotsys™ IoT Switch?

The iiotsys™ IoT Switch can communicate using MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) publish-subscribe-based messaging protocol to the cloud messaging server. The iiotsys™ IoT Switch can also be controlled using conventional request-response-based HTTP protocol.
