The iDevices app can get your device synced with a Switch in minutes. But remember, the app is only iOS compatible.

The front face of the Switch is the right mix of unobtrusive and stylish, an effect managed by that cool, colored LED strip.

The nightlight has an adjustable color spectrum and meters for brightness and color saturation.

The soft corners and monochromatic aesthetic will be familiar to anyone who knows Apple products. iDevices has teamed up with the megacorporation for their HomeKit project.

The iDevices app homepage is simple and intuitive. You can reach nearly every corner of the app with only two taps or swipes.

Plug anything into the side of this Switch and you can control it on your iDevices app or with Siri.

The Scenes function allows users to schedule commands to be sent at any time and day, even if you're off your home Wi-Fi network.

If you don't have your iPhone or iPad with you, a button on the side of the Switch's body allows you to toggle it manually.

You can use Siri or Scenes to control Switches, but you'll always be able to toggle them individually on the app.
