-These are small power-socket mounted switches for remote control of whatever device is plugged into them. Once set up, the switch can be controlled locally via a button or remotely from the IPS via the Switch Interface software. ​Th switches share information about their state with some server software on the IPS and can receive remote commands from the IPS too. Because the switches are designed to use the WiFi network intermittently,​ they check in with the server at regular (configurable) intervals to synchronise state information and process any pending commands. If a device is turned on or off locally after a remote (software) command has been sent, then the local operation takes precedence. Likewise, if the remote command is the most recent, it is executed at the next check-in.+These are small power-socket mounted switches for remote control of whatever device is plugged into them.
