Who are Switchee?
Switchee is the first smart thermostat for affordable housing, fighting fuel poverty and providing landlords with asset management and welfare KPIs.
As Switchee CEO Adam Fudakowski explains:
“We used a third-party provider to build a system who weren’t IoT experts, and found the user interface cumbersome to navigate. As we began to scale up, the system was proven unfit to support us and the amount of data warehousing we needed. Deploying devices became messy and painful – our operational management became our main blockage.”
DevicePilot helped Switchee connect their data to the 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.”
