This will certainly appeal to those not comfortable with playing with electrical wiring!
Nice find. ;)

From their web page...
Quote
As of now, Switchmate works on Bluetooth Low Energy technology. We are currently working to expand the range of Switchmate so that it can be used from anywhere you have an internet connection.

This will include integrations with other ecosystems and the development of our own hub.

I assume that means there is only local control until they have a hub. And other ecosystems likely includes Alexa.

Their FAQ says battery life (2 AA) is 8-12 months.

Plus it doesn't need neutral.
