Good Value

 

Easier [for me] to program that traditional "Digital" timers since it has a smart phone app that has a more user-friendly interface in order to program the scheding. 25% less than Belkin's WeMo.

App is clunky and in a broken-English that is not very intuitive. Took a while to program though seems to be working fine. So far.

Second Review

 

The customer support is pretty excellent. I had originally written a review about my displeasure with this product because it wouldn't connect to my network, due to some WEP issues. The issues were with the Smartplug, so I emailed their tech support....

Works as intended.

It could really use a web application to control the plug - if there is a smartphone app, it should be trivial to make a web application. When the bandwidth is being used, the switch commands are sometimes lost even when there is plenty more bandwidth...

Works as advertised

 

It works well as advertised. Can be controlled with a smartphone and through programmable timers.

During setup, it took a few tries to connect to my router. Operation via smartphone appears to be through the use of a central server; it would have been better for privacy reasons to be able to connect directly (like some of the IP cameras on the...

Works great!!

 

Used to turn my lamp on before I got home and had not problems. Also used with my crockpot since I don't have a programmable one.

Works just as directed. Downloaded the app for my Iphone and it took only a couple of minutes to set up.

A little big but not a problem for me. Probably could hook up to a power strip if you want to turn a couple items on and off at once.

Great home automation switch

 

It works as advertised. I hate coming home to an apartment when it's dark outside. I install Edimax Smart Plug for a porch light. It works perfect and easy setup the timer. Overall it is an inexpensive way to get home automation of your house. Great...

iPhone Setup, E-mail notification (Gmail default setting is so easy), Timer Schedule. Now i can turn on/off my light in the porch before going home! The setup is really easy. I am not tech savvy but i can set up within 3 minutes. The switch seems like...

The product size seems a little huge but this isn't a problem for me. I cannot control it through computer. You must have a smart phone or tablet to control the plug.

Doesn't connect to my WIFI

 

I thought my WIFI issues are because of the encryption, but the website says it supports mine. I'd gladly change this review if it worked for me.

It would be great if it worked. App looks fairly nice.

It doesn't connect to my WIFI. It finds it, I put in the password, it says connecting, then it says it cannot reach the internet. There is very little support on this item, not much on the web about it. The website says it can be managed through the...
