SwitchBox Control Adds New Features to Remote Power On Device


NEW YORK, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 19, 2014 — SwitchBox Control introduced new features to its top rated remote power-switching device. SwitchBox offers a simple, affordable and safe way to remotely turn electrical devices on/off. The new model incorporates heavier duty power cords with LED indicators. SwitchBox is commonly used for aircraft preheat systems and can control other devices with its remote switching capability and smartphone app technology.

SwitchBox was developed to provide a safe and efficient means for aircraft owners to preheat their aircraft engines during wintertime operations. It is a remote switching unit that powers on/off any electric device such as an aircraft engine preheater. SwitchBox can additionally power on a second electrical device. The new model sells for $324.99, only $25 more than its predecessor. SwitchBox is budget smart, and provides an alternative to leaving heat plugged in all winter, or for extended periods. Using SwitchBox, aircraft owners can operate their preheater selectively. This saves on electricity consumption and has the added benefit of protecting an aircraft’s engine from corrosion caused by temperature variations and moisture accumulation.

Phillip Angert, pilot and president of SwitchBox, commented, “Customers of SwitchBox have been extremely satisfied with our products. They have been dependable and have saved considerable time and energy consumption.” Angert continued, “The one feature that customers had requested was power-on indication letting them know when the unit was operating. So with this new model we have added this feature by adopting a heavier power cord with integral LED indicators to show when power is present. It’s an elegant solution that makes our SwitchBox even better, and handle more power at the same time.”

SwitchBox gives pilots a greater degree of flexibility when preparing their aircraft for flight. The unit allows the aircraft operator to use their preheat system selectively. When once operators would drive to their aircraft several hours before a flight to switch the preheater on, this can now be done remotely and reliably.

Operation of SwitchBox can be performed by a telephone call, text or the free iPhone or Android app. The app makes SwitchBox an intelligent device; it is a remote control that additionally reports usage, status changes, signal strength, and more.

SwitchBox can separately power on two electrical devices up to a maximum 15 Amps and 1500 Watts. This allows the pilot to prep for flight in any number of ways, such as powering up a GPS, complex avionics, security lighting, or even a coffee maker. SwitchBox is a solid-state switching device for superb reliability. A secured list of acceptable phone numbers prevents unwanted callers. The system includes a 6-foot antenna extension with magnetic mount, 1-year manufacturer parts and labor warranty, and a 30-day money back guarantee.
