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.
Would rate higher but will not connect to Alexa, easy to set up with their own app, but when setting up an account with tenda was not able to verify email, error message with broken link, this is I think the problem with connecting with Alexa as get error message when login on. I have been in contact with their customer services but they said there isn’t a problem, where there is obviously is as it’s not working, would buy more but won’t until sorted ☹️ Have also tried connecting to google and it doesn’t work either..
Update, with no further help from Tenda, I figured out the problem, the “email address” on the login is case sensitive, changed first capital to lower case and it now logs in to Alexa, upgraded rating to reflect.
This plug arrived well-presented in its sustainable cardboard packaging.
It is quite large in form-factor, meaning that if you've got other large plugs at adjacent outlets you may not be able to fit it in.
Setup was somewhat difficult, and took a couple of attempts because of the app which is fairly poorly designed. Once set up, it worked extremely well through Alexa control. It does make a quiet 'clicking' noise when turning on and off. If power is interrupted, the device reconnects quickly and without need for intervention.
The plug has been very useful and I am pleased with its value.
I read the horror stories rearding connection to Alexa AFTER I spent an afternoon trying to get these plugs connected. Was going through the process of returning them when I saw there was an option for Product Support. Nothing to lose, so I tried it. They suggested updating Alexa, which I did, and they slotted straight in. They do everything I require of them, so I would have given 5 stars, except for the initial bother.
