This project is coming soon. Sign up to receive updates and be notified when this project launches.


easySwitchBox does one simple thing – send on\off signals to any relay or actuator, or really trigger any event wirelessly and from a distance. Even up to a couple kilometers using LoRa®. It’s easy to program using the Arduino IDE, and communication is secured by an authentication chip. easySwitchBox not only makes your project more convenient, but makes it look more professional.
