Designed & Assembled in Kansas, USA

When B58 owner, Sean M. configured his aircraft with engine heaters, he began looking at remote switching solutions and was unimpressed with the options on the market. Having a bit of "at-home" time due to the CV-19 lock-downs, he set out to design a simple cellular remote control unit with a simple app user interface. No texts to send, no special codes to learn, no complex white-listing of phone numbers, and no SIM cards to manage. It's called SwitcheOn!

SwitcheOn is a remote switching box that is controlled using an Apple or Android smartphone app. The box utilizes the Verizon Wireless cellular network, which is the most reliable and wide-spread service network in the country.

Using the smartphone connected app, you can remotely activate each independent electrical channel (2 or 4 channel option) to activate your airplane’s engine block heater, cabin ceramic heater, or other electrical device(s) at the hangar at a pre-configured time AND/OR temperature.

No more driving out to the hangar in the cold winter the night before or wasting electricity running your engine block heater all winter. No more leaving the heaters on all winter without regard to actual hangar temp. You could even turn on a hangar torpedo heater when your hangar reaches a particular temp and have it shut down at some pre-determined higher temp. SwitcheOn is your cost effective easy to use solution.

The first year of service is included with the purchase and is $50/year after that. SwitcheOn has the following innovative features:

  • 2 or 4 channels and up to 15 amps (1800 watts)
  • Built In Temperature sensor & in-app indicator
  • Bright OLED display on front of box
  • Local and ZULU time
  • Signal status
  • Power/port status
  • Temperature
  • Mobile apps for iOS and Android
  • 2 channel: $249 
  • 4 channel: $379
  • 1st-year service included renews for $50/year
  • Automations for each channel​ (set distinct time and/or temp on/off points)
  • Controlled by the box, these function without connectivity
  • On temperature
  • Off temperature
  • On and off by time
  • Uses LTE-M and NB-IoT bands deployed as part of 5G rollouts
  • Operates much further from cellular towers than normal 3G or 4G
  • Warranted as long as service is maintained
  • Available custom options:
  • World-wide service in 130 Countries
  • 8 configurable analog / sensor inputs
  • Up to 4 thermocouple inputs
  • Additional custom sensor options

Max power handling is 1800W or 15 amps (total for all channel outputs). SwitcheOn contains an internal 15 amp fuse and if the fuse is blown, the unit will require SwitcheOn factory service to remain weatherproof.

FYI, a full Tannis 6 cylinder engine heater system with case, oil sump and 6 cylinder heaters is listed at approximately 460W. Please plan your loading appropriately.
