Is KosherSwitch® technology similar to the Zman Switch? (ZmanSwitch)?

No, KosherSwitch® is quite different!  The product marketed as “Zman Switch“ is simply a timer/Shabbos clock that is pre-programmed with Halachic times/zmanim for Shabbat and holidays.   Unlike the KosherSwitch®, it cannot be used for on-demand control of electricity on Shabbat/holidays — when and where it’s needed.  Like a traditional timer, it must be pre-configured with on/off times based on an anticipated and predetermined schedule that cannot be changed during Shabbat or holidays.  KosherSwitch® also yields significant energy savings, which the ZmanSwitch does not.  For more details on the advantages that KosherSwitch® yields, please see here and here.
