abunda_amazon_reviews Not UL or FCC rated, and couldn't connect to Alexa so far. Also had to download the SmartLife app which requires yet another registration, and requires your location, sells your information, sends you promotional offers, etc, etc, etc... Had no issues with several of the Amazon smart plugs, so will just stick with them. Will just toss these in the trash since many others had burning & smoking issues as well.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Not UL or FCC rated, couldn't connect to Alexa & they sell your data.;;Vipe!;;;We have four of these now. and are completely satisfied. Installation was quick and easy. Setup using the app is quick and easy. With a little experience and trial and error, we were even able to use IFTTT and have Siri respond to "Lights on" (and other commands) to control these smartplugs. Hint - use IFTTT with webhook as a trigger - control the lights with the IFTTT compatible Smart Life service, then create a Siri Shortcut to call the webhook URL. The only improvement I would make is to make a flat on one side of the smartplug - as it is, you cannot put a three-prong plug into a socket adjacent to the smartplug once the smartplug is plugged it. (US standard 3-prong outlet pair);;Reviewed in the United States on December 8, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Easy to install, easy to use, works great;;SF Renovator;;;Works as advertised, but you may have difficulty depending on your wireless router. I’ll explain. Modern Internet routers (especially those used for fiber connections) recently adopted “dual band” frequency, meaning they will offer both 2.4g and 5g frequencies, but favoring the more modern 5g. These smart plugs will only complete setup in 2.4g. That means you’ll need to log in to your router settings page with a physical connection. Don’t forget to power cycle the router after doing so. Then try scanning with the app again. After initial setup, you can safely switch your router settings back. One the app recognizes them, add the Alexa skill and log in. Scan for smart home devices and you’ll be good to go.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 1, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;If Your App Doesn’t Find Anything;;A. Rhodes;;;These smart plugs are great and easy to set up! They came with easy to follow directions, although very small print. What you do is scan the QR code on the box and it will link you to the app you need to download onto your smart phone or device. Once downloaded, plug in the smart plug, hold the smart plug on/off button for 5 seconds and release. It will start blinking, signaling you it is ready to set up. Open the app and follow the steps to connect. You will need to know your wifi password here! Also, you have to connect to your 2.4ghz wifi or it won't work. I have Comcast and have a 5.0 and a 2.4 wifi. The app defaulted to the 5.0 wifi and it kept failing to connect the plug. Once I switched my phone to the 2.4 wifi, it connected in about 5 seconds. The great thing about these plugs is that the app lets you set them up to come on at dusk (based on your location) and then turn them off at a set time. The app is easy to use and the plugs are working flawelessly!;;Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;You need 2.4 GHZ Wifi to make these work!;;MH;;;I gave this product 4 stars because the initial setup was difficult. Not a lot of detailed instructions. Download TuyaSmart or SmartLife app doesn’t matter. To avoid changing your wifi from a 5Ghz to a 2.4 Ghz, Step 1: I had to press the plus sign to add plug, chose electrical outlet, and held the power button on the plug until i saw a fast blinking light. Step 2:Then in the app I chose the AP mode. I had to press and hold the power button again while the light was blinking fast until I saw the light blinking slowly (one flash every 2 seconds) Step 3: press confirm indicator slowly blink. Step 4: Put in your wifi info and then it will take you to a page where you have the option to the app’s wifi. It will begin connecting. Step 5: Make sure the light is still blinking slowly until the connection is complete.( this may take several tries because the blinking does not last long), but It will finally connect. Side note: I also have the Echo so I made sure if I did get the plug outlet setup she would discover it immediately.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 29, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;There is another method to set up the plug;;Amazonian;;;I picked up 4 Avatar smart plugs, 2 round and 2 square. All were very easy to set up and work great with Alexa. FYI - The square one will allow you to use the other plug in a 2 plug wall outlet, the round one gets in the way. Works great for low amp devices like lamps. Not recommended for AC units or space heaters as the plugs are rated at 10 amps and do not have a circuit breaker built in to them. Exceed the power rating and it will fry the unit. Alexa connectivity does not require a hub, just add the smart life app to your phone, set them up and then add the smart life skill to Alexa.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 9, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Works great with Alexa!;;Mike G;;;I really like these outlets, we now have a small collection over my house. Please enjoy this pro/con list: PROS: -works with Smart Life app, which is easy to use -App interfaces with echo dots for easy voice control -App has programmable rooms, scenes, commands, etc. (like saying “I’m home” to your echo and it turns on specific lights, or setting a scheduled timer from the app) -Simple to add IF phone is on 2.4GHz WiFi and smart life app is open -great for outlets that are in hard-to-reach places, like my lamp behind the couch that I can’t reach to turn on and off -you can now pull a sweet prank on your brother by flashing his desk light on and off no matter where you are CONS: -teaching my mom to use the Smart Life app as a light switch was... eventful. -“mini” outlet still takes up lots of space on the wall -only works on 2.4GHz WiFi. If you forget and your phone/ smart home speaker/ whatever is on 5GHz, you can’t control the outlets until you switch back. -your little brother can now turn on/off your lights from anywhere using his phone (you can fix this by not sharing your devices with your family in the Smart Life app). Other info: these come in a 2 pack which is pretty sweet for the price, considering that others are a solid $30 per outlet. They are mini outlets, so they fit anything that’s 3 prong or smaller but some large plugs won’t fit into the outlet next to them (like when your computer charger blocks the next outlet space). I think you can still plug 2 in next to each other. These only turn the device on & off- no gradients or color changing.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 27, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great budget smart home appliance!;;mks95

Great budget smart home appliance!
I really like these outlets, we now have a small collection over my house. Please enjoy this pro/con list: PROS: -works with Smart Life app, which is easy to use -App interfaces with echo dots for easy voice control -App has programmable rooms, scenes, commands, etc. (like saying “I’m home” to your echo and it turns on specific lights, or setting a scheduled timer from the app) -Simple to add IF phone is on 2.4GHz WiFi and smart life app is open -great for outlets that are in hard-to-reach places, like my lamp behind the couch that I can’t reach to turn on and off -you can now pull a sweet prank on your brother by flashing his desk light on and off no matter where you are CONS: -teaching my mom to use the Smart Life app as a light switch was... eventful. -“mini” outlet still takes up lots of space on the wall -only works on 2.4GHz WiFi. If you forget and your phone/ smart home speaker/ whatever is on 5GHz, you can’t control the outlets until you switch back. -your little brother can now turn on/off your lights from anywhere using his phone (you can fix this by not sharing your devices with your family in the Smart Life app). Other info: these come in a 2 pack which is pretty sweet for the price, considering that others are a solid $30 per outlet. They are mini outlets, so they fit anything that’s 3 prong or smaller but some large plugs won’t fit into the outlet next to them (like when your computer charger blocks the next outlet space). I think you can still plug 2 in next to each other. These only turn the device on & off- no gradients or color changing.
