A Cape Town-based company has developed a wireless IoT system that brings control and monitoring systems to your home via your mobile phone, tablet, or PC.
Qwik-Switch’s web or android app works with its GSM Cloud Hub, transmitters, and receivers – allowing control, scheduling, monitoring, and alerts for most household items.
This will enable you to integrate lights, geysers, doors, pumps, etc. into the app – in fact, the relay receivers can switch on just about anything.
Qwik-Switch also offers a developer API for their USB modem, allowing users to integrate their own applications.
The new Qwik-Sense series of devices allows the user to monitor and be alerted to multiple events – such as water leaks, movement, door opening, proximity, and temperature via their smartphone.
If existing light switches are inconveniently placed and need to be changed, Qwik-Switch’s wireless transmitters overcome wiring and labour costs and allow unlimited placement alternatives.
All devices are capable of working in excess of 30 metres through walls and floors, with the option of repeaters for longer distances.
The Swich-Art switchplates allow a designer approach to IoT, where even the backlighting colour and intensity can be controlled.
The range of current monitoring devices enables you to track your electricity consumption and implement corrective measures to save energy in your residential, commercial, or industrial property.
Qwik-Switch is continuously adding to its range of products and recently integrated the Eco-Watt range of commercial and industrial devices.
