In the original RWE SmartHome apps, rooms are fairly limited. Devices can only ever be associated with a single room (much like in real life) and their order can’t be changed.

Switch Control introduces “special” rooms that show all devices of a particular device class (i.e. all thermostats) and also allows you to create your own, custom rooms. Each device can be associated with multiple rooms. In addition, rooms can be hidden and reordered.

The configuration is stored on the iOS device now (sync will be available later this year).
