A super neat gadget that will become a cannot-do-without item in every other household very soon. All you need is a wifi connection and a smart phone. Very easy to install. Simple enough instructions to download the app and how to​ add the socket to the app so that you can control the socket's off and on function with a simple phone screen touch. Perfect for when you leave for an extended period of time and you want a table lamp to turn on at night and keep burglars away. Or if you want your kids off the TV, a simple touch will switch off the TV streaming device (as long as plugged into the socket) while you are away. Endless possibilities. It will save you energy as well

The Smart plug is the way to go with Alexa. It works perfectly using Alexa or you can control it from your smart phone. FYI- The HUE bulbs are not very bright the highest watt they make is equivalent to 60 watt bulb which I don’t feel is bright enough for me. That’s I came across the smart plug. You can use any bulb does not require a smart bike.

Item arrived on time. rec'd 4, 2 in a box. 2 little boxes in each box. Each plug box had instructions. Did what the instructions said and very 1st plug worked great. The instructions also showed how to link with the Alexa app. Worked great. After the 1st one, installed 2 more worked great. First plug took the most time probably 15 minutes, because you have to get the smart life app, then register, and set up log in. Also have to link with Alexa. When adding the other 2 plugs. maybe 10 minutes at the most. If your using Alexa to help control the plugs you need to have her find the other devices.
Very happy with this purchase so far.

This is my first smart plug and I use the google home mini.

Pretty nice plug. glossy finish and feels decent but not premium. It was easy to setup. Needed to download the smart home app first (assuming you already have this plugged in) and then the setup up to your internet/wifi. After that going to google home app to select the smart life app within that to setup. Then voila! After that, it works like magic!

2 cons: 1. wish it was smaller so i can fit 2 within the same outlet. 2. price could be cheaper as there are many other options out there.

Work perfectly with my Alexa. Easy to program with the phone app. Just downld and turn on the phone app, plug the socket in to a convenient outlet near your phone, hold the button on the plug until it rapidly flashes blue, give it a few seconds to connect to app, give the plug a name of that you want it to control, and then move the plug to the desired fixture and power up the appliance or whatever. Tell Alexa to turn it off. Done. NOTE: Alexa can only control plugged in things that do not require a second follow-up action from you (ex: Smart or SAT TV).

I bought this to use with Google Home devices, so I can't comment on its Echo capabilities. The setup was easy on Google Home and I simplified it by giving nicknames to each of the two connections. It's been working perfectly ever since. I'm using it to control some backyard lights and our Christmas Tree. Both were a pain to handle manually; but both are now controlled with simple "Hey Google" commands now. Setup was easy using the downloaded app, and integration with Google Home just required following directions. Great product!

Using with Google Home. Feels solid. Iphone Smart Life app looks clean and is easy to join device to app after creating account. Only issue I see is that if you add one device through Google Home and then try to add another, you'll need to unlink Smart Life and add it back to see the additional outlets. Google Home manages it well after, no issues. Outlet doesn't monitor power usage, though not a deal breaker. For $15 each I don't see a reason to complain, just hope the linking is more streamlined.

These outlets are great. So quick and easy to set up with the app and work with my google home mini. I have both outlets controlling two separate lights in my living room and it is amazing how well they work. Turn each light on individually, or all together, whatever you want. Turn one off and leave the other on, bang, done. And there is almost no delay responding to your command. Set them up as timers when you're away from home, I really can't talk them up enough. Now I'm looking for more places to put these terrific outlets. They also don't block the second outlet in the wall socket which is nice. I would recommend these to everyone.

I bought a pack of two and one was DOA. I contacted the customer service department and after some troubleshooting, the finally sent me a replacement pack. All are now working successfully! Thank you!
