Awesome plug! The long slim design works great wall outlets because it doesn’t block the second outlet!! This plug works great with the “Smart Life” app which is a must for all the smart plugs I buy! Smart Life has an awesome Alexa skill that allows these plugs to be used with Amazon Echos or any other Alexa enabled device!! Smart Life also works with other brand outlets which is a must for me!
Note: A home hub is not required for these plugs but also know that these plugs won’t work with hubs like Wink! If that’s a must for you, look elsewhere.. but know that Google Home, Alexa, and a lot of other devices can communicate with this outlet via “Skills”, “app” or whatever
Note 2: These outlets work with other Apps but I have always used Smart Life (which the outlet recommends). Just keep in mind, the features I mention in this review are based on the Smart Life App
1.) Uses Smart Life App
2.) Plugs can be named (if using smart life app.. other apps might also allow names).. naming the plug allows you to say “Alexa, turn off the Aquarium Light” and if the plug is named aquarium light Alexa will turn it off
3.) Allows imer function (if using the smart life app)
4.) Smart Life App is compatible with other brand smart plugs
Overall: Great Plug! I highly recommend it
