Well, I beg to differ. What I write is what I experienced.
Since I purchased these last month, I notice that many claims that used to be made are no longer on the company web site. The Amazon page still says "Works with Google Assistant & . . . " And what? you might ask.
Here is what does not work. This product doesn't work with Alexa, not even the Echo Pro, which has a built-in hub, although Swichmate claims to be developing an Alexa app. It doesn't work with Google Home Assistant, even though it once said it did on the company website. According to other reviewers, it once worked with the Wink2 Hub, but no longer does after the last firmware update. I can't verify that.. When you link the Switchmate to the Switchmate app (via bluetooth) it automatically updates the firmware, so there's no option to stick with old firmware.
I attach a screenshot from the Google Assistant phone app--which looks like great things happened, but -- nothing actually did. The fan didn't turn on at all. Also the window of opportunity to type or say something until "Switchmate" left the conversation was a little under ten seconds. I had to try three times to get the words out fast enough-- which is why Google thought I was searching "how to turn on a ceiling fan" (I won't say "farci***" again, but I will say "nonsensical.") I have a physical Google Home Assistant too, and it has no idea what a "switchmate" is. The company is not on the list of devices that can be integrated with the Assistant. However, the option to "Enable Google Assistant" option still exists in the settings of the Switchmate app. It delivers a pairing code that the Assistant app will accept, but to no result.
What does work? The Switchmate phone app.
As a disabled person these are worth it in terms of saving steps, or getting in and out of bed to reach a wall switch for the fan, but it is an expensive and clunky mechanical solution to a simple problem. In order for it to be useful, I'll need to set up another tablet for the app so I have the opportunity to charge my phone, and can keep a device within reach. Currently it's about as much work to chase the phone around the house as it is to get up and use the switch.
As a renter, I didn't want the better solution of using smart home products that are wired into the switchbox. So, I wait for them to either develop a work around to get this bluetooth product to work with any of the current hubs. This is a clunky and expensive solution -- but for now, I'll just keep using the phone app. The version I bought was the first-gen of this product, and the price has dropped by about a third since they came out with a narrower version that you can use side-by-side on a multi-gang switch plate.
I wanted something simple to control the lights in my porch without the need to re-wire, etc... and this product works perfectly! It just snapped onto the toggle and with a minute or 2 of setup and pairing with my phone, it was ready to go.
It did what I wanted - automatically turn on/off the lights as scheduled and I now never need to do it myself!
If you want a simple solution, this is it, without any other hassle.
I'm not thinking of replacing 1 of my smart light bulb with this Switchmate. With the smart light bulb, the switch needs to always be on and to turn it off, I need to voice control using Alexa or Google Home, which I think it's annoying... I just think it's quicker to push the Switchmate.
I'm definitely going to buy another one, just thinking where I should put it.

Tried 4 switches around the house . And another home's switches... Each of the switches have slightly different switch height profiles. Tried to mount with or without the adapter that it comes with. Doesn't toggle at all. I tried adjusting the mount positioning. I physically held the product forcibly in place. I even temporarily modified the adapter to have more height to get more leverage...... No good.
The magnet itself isn't very strong too. So while it's toggling , it falls off.
I needed this because I have a specific switch that's on a 4 way. No smart switch can handle that. So I wanted a low tech mechanical solution. Too bad, this had promise but just doesn't work.
Solution: this thing turns on and turns off the lights with the timer, simple!
I’m not too keen on the other features such as voice activation and controlling it from my phone even though I installed the app, however it does what I need it to do and does it well.
For the money, it does what they say it will do and the installation wall was super easy.
