Switchee – Saving landlords and residents money.

Switchee Smart Thermostat - Better Lives With Intelligent Homes
Home Innovation Partners Switchee Smart Thermostat – Better Lives With Intelligent Homes.

Switchee makes maintaining your properties simple and straightforward with remote tools that allow you to check a property’s condition, analyse problems and schedule fixes all in one place.

Switchee is a smart thermostat and analytics solution that allows housing providers to better understand a property through live sensor data, improving communication through a digital two-way communication system and save residents money on their energy bills. Each Switchee smart thermostat uses five sensors temperature, light, motion, humidity and air pressure to learn household and heating usage patterns. Residents save money on their bills through a more efficient use of their heating system. Landlords can access this sensor data, as well as a host of other calculated metrics, via a dashboard and API. This allows them to perform a range of cost-saving actions, pre-emptive repairs or data-informed strategic interventions.

Examples include:

  •  Optimally scheduling appointments with residents
  •  Identifying properties at risk of mould and damp
  • Conducting remote boiler or heating system tests

Switchee can be installed in most properties across a portfolio – with the latest large-scale rollout being Flagship Group’s commitment to install 20,000 units over the next 5 years.
