Make your life easier with automations. We tailor triggers & actions to get more done.

Get more out of your life with automations

We offer an ever-growing database of tried and tested automations that can work in your life, at home, with family or in the car. We share links where you can copy and save the Shortcuts or automations directly or provide the code so you can customise it. In the event we can't do either we'll provide tutorial videos where we walk you through how we built and implemented the automation. 

Use the trigger that works for you

When it comes to automations, triggers are the key where the automation starts. At AutomateOn we recommend the trigger that works best for us, but in many scenarios you can swap out the trigger that suits you needs. We recommend all sorts of triggers such as a voice command given, an NFC tag being tapped, a QR code being scanned or even a sound being detected.  

No need to pick a side

We've developed automations that will work on iOS and Android. For most automations we've provided alternative platforms that utilise Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa or a combination. With our Zapier or IFTTT automations you can customise to utilise your preferred platform.

Never knew I could do that!

The AutomateOn team have helped me build shortcuts and automations that I never thought were possible. Thanks so much!

App is a good start

App is a good pplace to start to make QR Codes and keep track of things like USB cables. Now I know which one is which.

Content is so helpful

I knew you could use NFC tags and QR Codes for automations but what I found on AutomateOn took it to another level.

There's the app for that

Where we couldn't find a solution to our problems we built it into our app. There wasn't a great place to generate and manage QR Codes for your things so we've built our own app for you.

Print QR Code labels and manage your things like charging cables, foodstuff or anyhthing else you can imagine!

Available on the Play Store!

Print QR codes, track your things

Track your things with QR Codes. You can print it out and stick it on your thing so you can easily scan them with the AutomateOn app to identify & manage (or answer) many things like; "whose charging cable does this belongs to?", "what kind of battery does it take?", or "what is this adaptor for?" You get the picture; for so many things!

Get the most out of your things

Never leave a device go unused because it's too hard to find a battery or charging cable. With AutomateOn you'll get the most out of your devices!

How does this all work?It's really easy! Sign up for an account at or download from the App Store or Play Store and start adding your things. Registering and tracking your things on AutomateOn is absolutely free. Once you add your devices you can start adding dates for when the batteries should be replaced. The more  devices you add and track the better AutomateOn's tools will be in helping to estimate your battery usage and predicting when your batteries should be replaced. 

Once you subscribe to a paid plan (Basic, Premium or Ultimate) you'll be able to order batter replacements for your devices for free. Just click on the "Order" tab of the app and click on the "Order" button to have the replacement batteries for your device delivered to you. If you are subscribed to either the Premium or Ultimate plans you can also book a Concierge service where a team member will provide at-home service to replace the battery in your most 'difficult' devices such as smoke detectors and car key remotes. To book the Concierge service click on the pulldown menu in the top left of the app and click on the "Book Concierge" link. On the next screen you'll be able to select a preferred date and time of when you'd like the Concierge to visit at the specified address (Concierge Service is currently available in metro Australian areas and booking times are available between 8am and 8pm Monday-Sunday).

Why not just print out all the notes and details onto your QR Code labels?Linking your note and other metadata to your thing and not onto the actual label lets you continually add and update to the note of your thing. You can also hide details you may not want to have on the label. And finally it save you from continually peeling the label off and onto your thing.

Why don't you just count replacements by individual battery rather than device?Great question! On average a device takes 1.3 batteries; meaning which there are many devices that take one single battery and typically a customer has the odd device that takes 4 or more batteries. We wanted customers to have a clear picture of how many devices they could get battery replacements for in a month rather than the total number of batteries. Also, we are planning additional features for the service that are based more on devices than batteries so we figured it would be best to start with having customers getting used to managing devices through our app, not to worry about how many batteries are in a device. Also, in some instances, you may have a thing like a garage remote or car fob that is in an enclosed case and you don't exactly know how many batteries are in the device. Our commitment to you is that we'll replace the batteries in your thing no matter how many batteries it takes.

Why don't you use rechargeable batteries?We love rechargeable batteries and they're great for high-use devices with popular battery sizes like game controllers. Unfortunately there are no rechargeable options for the more obscure batteries like the ones in your watches. We encourage you to use rechargeable batteries for standard-sized batteries like AA or AAAs and use AutomateOn's service for your more specialty devices like car key remotes.

What is your battery disposal & credits service?Mail in your used batteries and let us dispose of them in the most environmentally-friendly manner. Also send us unrequired batteries for $0.50 off your subscription (per battery).

What's the Concierge Service?The Concierge Service is our at-home battery replacement service. This is where one of our trained team members will visit you at your preferred address and replace the batteries for you. This is perfect for some of the more 'difficult' devices we live with in our daily lives like car remotes or smoke detectors. You can book the Concierge Service via our app. The Concierge Service is currently limited to metro Australia areas between 8am and 8pm Monday - Sunday. Service may be further limited by current lockdown restrictions in your state.

I don't know what size battery goes into my device.We can help! Just add the device to the app and select "Other" under Battery Size. Be sure to add a clear photo of the device. Order the battery replacement anyway and we'll make a best guess as to which battery it takes (we may contact you to get more information).

How do I cancel/change my plan?On the app, just go to the "Profile" tab and there is a "Cancel" button on the page. If you are changing plan just re-subscribe to the new plan.

Do my outstanding device battery replacements and Concierge visits rollover to the next month?No. Any unutilised battery replacements do not rollover to the following month. Concierge visits do not rollover to the next month unless we're unable to book you in for that month.

Is my Concierge police-checked?All team members that are assigned or contracted for Concierge service are vetted and police-checked.

How do you generate and print the QR Code labels?Each thing you add to AutomateOn we apply a uniqe serial number or DeviceID to it. The DeviceID is embedded into the QR Code.
