My whole home is a smart home. We have lights, locks, switches, etc covering the entire home. Needless to say I have tried several different smart plugs and this is by far the best of the bunch. Why? It is so quick and easy to set up. It literally took me less than a minute and I had both Google home and Alexa turning it on and off. There is near zero lag and no need for a separate hub. When I say it is that good, I mean it just works. Everytime. I plan on swapping out my current smart plugs with these. Highly highly recommended!
