For the initial launch of Autopilot, we require you use either the WeMo Switch or the newer WeMo Insight Switch. Our software only supports these two models, and does not support operating with any other brand of WiFi-enable power switch. iHome compatible switches are NOT supported at this time.
We chose the WeMo switch because it uses a simple, open API and is widely available from Amazon and other retailers at a reasonable price.
In the future, we plan to include compatibility for additional power switches for use with Pantelligent Autopilot. But for now, we recommend you use the WeMo or WeMo Insight WiFi-enabled power switch.
