jquery mobile flip switch

I am using a jquery mobile flip switch.

I have the "change" event bound to it, so that when the user changes it, it sends an ajax request to the server to change the state of the switch.

$("#myswitch").bind("change", function (event){
    // do ajax call to server
});

The client also polls the server, and If a different users on another browser somewhere changes the flip switch, then the switch on this browser is changed programatically:

$('#myswitch').val('on').slider("refresh");

The problem is that this slider refresh causes the change event to fire, when then sends ajax back to the server, which results in a loop.

Is there a way to know in the change event whether the event was fired because the user actually changed the switch, or if the switch was changed programmatically?
