To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Works fine with our Google Homes. It hasn't been subjected to any harsh weather yet. My big complaint is that some power still trickles through even when off. We've got some LED string lights that still have a soft glow when the device should be off. I'm a little worried that'll hurt the lifespan of the lights.
Wanted to turn outside decorative lights on and off. Too much time spent on set-up on Smart Life. The app needs to work with the WiFi in the house not having to change router and passwords. Finally got setup with hotspot. Plug works great once set up
The included instructions were wrong. The iOS app has been updated without new or additional documentation. They gave me enough clues to find out a little more on line about how to set it up though. I was then able to make it work through trial and error. I selected "Socket", as "Electronic Outlets" was not an option for me. I used AP Mode (slow flashing) which isn't in my instructions. Once it was configured, it seems like great product. Would buy again.
Worked for a month.... like a charm. I could control my fountain in the fish pond, and the lights, worked excellent with the timer on the app on the smart phone. And then... stopped working after 4 weeks. Wouldn't turn on whatsoever. I contacted the seller. They sent a replacement. Hope it works longer. Will review it later on how it ends up working.
The product works great.. the automation interface probably could use a bit of cleaning up. The section labeled "effective" is not intuitive. Having to be on 2.4 frequency for wifi is getting harder to do with newer routers. Overall the smart plug is nice.. it feels durable and its currently working.
