Connected thermostats for social housing
Industry: Smart Home
Location: London, England
Founded: 2014
Size: 11-50 employees



Switchee is the first smart thermostat for affordable housing, fighting fuel poverty and providing landlords with asset management and welfare KPIs. As they began to scale, they used a third-party provider to build a system, but the providers weren’t IoT experts and the user interface was cumbersome to navigate.

As they began to scale up, the system was proven unfit to support Switchee’s growth and the amount of data warehousing they needed. Deploying devices became messy and painful, and operational management became their main blockage.

How did we help Switchee?

We helped Switchee connect their data to our service using the simple, problem-free AWS-IoT integration. Using the process automation function, Switchee were able to set up custom events to trigger the attention of a relevant party should any issues arise rather than relying on manual refreshing and checking. DevicePilot is built on the AWS Serverless Platform – utilising AWS Kinesis, Lambda and DynamoDB to deliver a IoT stream processing engine that will scale with our customers.

“We have full control over our operational management again – DevicePilot has given us an enhanced overview of our diagnostics. We have insights over exactly what’s happening with our devices and the firmware being run on them, and can solve issues as they arise rather than relying on a human to spot a problem.”
