  • Includes 5 ft extended antenna with magnetic base

Simplify your cold weather flying routine!

The SwitchBox is controlled via phone by calling or texting a unique phone number that is provided. To turn on a device that is plugged into the SwitchBox, simply call the number, letting it ring to voicemail, then hang up. The same procedure is used to turn the device off. To turn device on, off, or to check status via text message/SMS, text the phone number with the appropriate commands.

The SwitchBox comes with an activation code for a T-Mobile account and phone number. SIM cards from other carriers may also be used. The account initially has a $3.00 credit to be used for phone calls (free if you hang up as soon as voice mail picks up) and text messages/SMS ($0.10 each). The balance of the prepaid account expires every month and will need to be replenished.

The SwitchBox app (iPhone, Android or web-based) now allows you to also visually manage the outlet status, reception strength, account balance and alerts, and custom security lists. Advanced users will appreciate the improved flow for adding new SwitchBox devices, synchronization of properties between devices, refresh of data from cloud storage, and timer capabilities.
