If you are planning to buy SwitchBot Card, you may have been wondering, what’s the difference between SwitchBot Card and just some old ordinary card that you can buy from anywhere? And how exactly can you get the most out of SwitchBot Card?

If it were like an ordinary blank card, you’d probably be a little wary when taking it outside, right? Maybe you’ll lose it, maybe it’ll be stolen, maybe it’ll snap in half in some kind of freak accident. But mainly, it’s security that’s an issue, like… What if someone copies your card?
