Do you know how some of the best and most useful things out there also happen to be some of the simplest things out there? Well, that’s exactly the case with the SwitchBot Smart Switch Button Pusher. This little gadget could not possibly be any simpler… and yet it’s so brilliant that you’re going to want them in every room of your house.
As the name suggests, this little gadget pushes buttons. That’s it.
SwitchBot’s button pusher installs in seconds and it lets you push buttons using your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can also tie it into just about any smart home system if you pick up a SwitchBot Hub Mini, which also happens to be on sale right now at Amazon for just $39. You can push buttons on command from your phone or tablet, with your voice using Alexa or Google Assistant commands, or on a schedule or timer that you configure in the app.
The most obvious use case is to install the SwitchBot Smart Switch Button Pusher on a light switch. Instead of bothering with a complex smart light switch installation, this little guy installs in a few seconds and lets you control any lights that have a paddle switch or a rocker switch. It’s so cool! On top of that, however, you can use this button pusher on anything with a pressable button and a small flat area so you can stick it on. From coffee makers and televisions to air conditioners, PC monitors, kitchen appliances, and so much more… you can control it all!
