There’s nothing worse than installing a semi-permanent product in your wall before realizing there’s vital information on the back. If that information is necessary to make said product work, there’s really no recourse but to pull the product out of the wall and start over. What a huge pain!

The design team at iDevices has gone above and beyond to make sure you never feel this pain, at least when it comes to our products. We can’t speak for other smart home brands. Now for some context on the above scenario:

iDevices products work with HomeKit, a system that allows you to control your smart home devices all in one place, and with Siri. You can learn more about HomeKit here. To add compatible products to the HomeKit environment, you need each product’s assigned eight-digit HomeKit code. It’s easy enough to scan or type in the code. But if the code is only located on the manual you threw away, or on the back of the smart switch you just installed, you’re in trouble.

To prevent this massive headache, the iDevices Wall Switch, Dimmer Switch, and Wall Outlet come equipped with our patent pending Pull Out Tab, which makes connecting to HomeKit extremely simple. The tab includes the eight-digit HomeKit code, so you can access it at any moment if you ever decide to relocate a product, or remove and add a product back to HomeKit. In addition to being handy, the Pull Out Tab feature is very discreet. The tab is located at the top of Wall Switch and Dimmer Switch, and on the right side of Wall Outlet. The iDevices Thermostat doesn't have a Pull Out Tab, but you can access the HomeKit code at your convenience via the digital display. 

As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out to our U.S.-based customer experience team:
