We have been trying to upgrade things in our home to be "smart" so it was a no brainer to add a smart plug to the list. We had no clue what to expect from this, so weren't sure how it would work but can say we are pleased now with how it is performing.
The plug is simple. It is a regular three prong plug that fits in to any wall socket. It has two switches on the sides of the two ports it provides that allow you to connect via wifi. You have to download an app to control it, but it is available in the Google Play store and on the Apple store. It is easy to set up and easy to control.
It can be used with any smart device. When you are setting it up you select Add Device from the app and press the buton on the plug adapter until it is flashing fast, then sync it up. Enter your wifi info and you are set. Then simply enable Smart Life in your voice controlled device (Alexa or Google Home) and you are good to go with any voice controls. Simple to use and set up.
And if you don't have an "Alexa" like device, you can use the plug as just that - a plug that has two outlets in it. It works the same as any other plug. Plug your devices or items in to it, and you have power.
Great plug, simple to use, and low cost.
