This is an amazing product! I didn’t really expect much out of it when I bought this thing. However, I have been using it outdoors for about 2 months now and I have to say, it defintely is worth buying. The construction is high quality and totally weatherproof. It has already been exposed to heavy rains and it still works great. Setting it up is mostly straight forward. It works with Alexa as well. Therefore, you control any device plugged to the 2 outlets from anywhere using your smartphone. I am using it to control the string lights and it works perfectly. It is also compatible with IFTTT.
Just keep in mind, this does require WiFi and only supports 2.4 GHz. But It doesn’t require anything else. No “hub” or special switches.
I highly recommend this product especially during the holiday seasons!
