bottom-up window blinds and skylight shades

A. Biffen, Senior Partner NodeSwitch™ was born out of our development company that was created in the 1980's. Home Automation has always been a principal interest, and now we feel the tools have arrived that take the drudgery out of it.

The exciting new tools available to us today make the job of integrating smart home concepts easier than it ever has been. Developments such as Micropython running on the ESP32 have signaled a paradigm shift. We are also big fans of the Raspberry Pi, Node-RED, BroadLink and Grove; these technologies also make for a very capable, easy to use system.

Customer satisfaction is our #1 goal, and we run our business by the Golden Rule: you are treated with the same service that we would like for ourselves. You'll get a fast, comprehensive response, and you won't get a different sales rep every time you contact us.

We communicate by email and use a powerful in-house database system we have developed that immediately displays the previous conversation we've had with you, so you never have to explain things twice.

Our focus is mainly on blind, window, skylight and lighting automation, controlled by multi-channel hand held remotes, z-wave, WiFi and other digital radio systems. Your investment in our products is also 'future proofed' by the ability to extend control of your devices to your phone, tablet or laptop (whether at home or away).

We are a group of programmers, engineers, and gadget geeks dedicated to bringing high quality, precision engineered automation products into everyday lives. We have been developing and using these systems ourselves for over 30 years.

We also work with other groups, helping to bring sophisticated home automation systems to our customers; here is a group at MIT we have assisted:

City Home Project - MIT

Our mission is to de-mystify the underlying technology and help you to enjoy the benefits of an automated life style. We ship our products worldwide, and we have many satisfied customers on every continent.

We also support alternative energy systems, having worked with solar systems since 1972. All our motors run on safe, efficient 12v DC and are specifically designed for low power consumption, for easy interfacing to solar and other alternative energy systems.

We fully support the international effort to create 'green' products and reduce fossil fuel dependency.

We do not publish our phone number as we get too many telemarketing calls, but send us your phone number and we'll be happy to call.
