Further clarification of R’ Lebowitz’ representation of KosherSwitch® with respect to psik reisha, courtesy of R’ S. Werner, and YUTorah.org, as posted there on 09/21/2011:

 

Re: Your Comment on the Issue of Psik Raisha

 

Perhaps what they meant could be explained as follows. In regular cases of Eino Miskavein the act which I did is what created the melacha, albeit unintentionally, as in the case of dragging the bench which makes a groove in the ground. The heter of EM [Eino Miskavein] works by saying that since it was unintentional we can separate that effect from his maaseh and consider it as if it was not done by him. Psik Reisha says that when the issur will definitely occur from this act we cannot separate the result from the act. We therefore consider it as his maaseh and it’s ossur, like before applying the heter of Eino Miskavein.

 

Here however, the act of moving the switch is not what causes the melocha as it has nothing to do with the electric current. Therefore even without the din of Eino Miskavein the act of moving the switch is not a maaseh issur. However if it would be a Psik Reisha then that would “connect” the definite result to his act and it would be ossur like the case of opening the door which lets in the wind and extinguishes the candle. They therefore explain that it’s not even a Psik Reisha based on their switches etc.

 

After writing this I looked on their website and it seems like that’s what they meant in the teshuva ([link]) p. 8-9 Siman 5 Os 1-2.
