Affordable control of off premises devices, via radio, with SwitchBox!

Our new SwitchBox let’s you use your two-way radio to control all kinds of things!  You can turn electronic warning sirens on and off.  You can turn pumps on and off.  You can turn signs on and off!  In a nutshell, you can turn virtually ANYTHING on an off that uses electrical power for activation or deactivation.

The SwitchBox was originally designed for emergency operations centers to control activation of warning sirens in the event of severe weather or other emergencies. Since this is a mission critical application, the SwitchBox was designed for outdoor use in severe conditions.  If you ever stood in the middle of a high plains Nebraska wheat field in the middle of January, you KNOW what severe outdoor environments are all about!

The SwitchBox consists of a radio control receiver that can be activated by up 3 programmable ON codes plus an OFF code with connection to two programmable relay outputs.  The entire electronics package is housed in a NEMA 4 weather resistant case with an external antenna and internal heater.  The SwitchBox can be controlled by any two-way radio capable of transmitting standard 2-tone page codes, or optionally by DTMF.

The SwitchBox is available in your choice of VHF or UHF, custom programmed to your specific requirements. It’s made in the USA and it is affordable – just $1,095 for everything including a one year factory warranty, free programming, and shipping to anywhere in the USA.  An optional DTMF decoder adds $99 and you can purchase your own programming kit for just $49.
