very easy to use. I simply plugged it in, then turned on my wifi on phone (droid turbo, Android) and connected to wifi outlet, then downloaded app, then paired the outlet with my (zoom) wireless modem. can use the app with wifi or 3g, 4g connection. right now I have my Christmas tree plugged into it. plan on buying the outdoor one next.

i love it
Bought this on december 2015 after trying out 5 of these devices, I went and bought more. You can use a maximum of 12. I plug the Eco device into the socket and then connect a power bar to it so I can control a group of devices (ensuring I'm still under the power limits of 15A and 1000W). They have reduced my base power consumption from 0.4 kW to 0.1 kW with the added advantage of being able to shut my lamp off from virtually anywhere with web access.
These are a quick and easy way to control anything with a plug on the cloud. From anywhere there is internet connections.
The app is ugly but it simple and easy to use. It just works. You can also programmatically query the current state and turn it on and off via the UDP protocol once you pair it to your wifi network.
Tricky but works great!
I tried multiple times to set it up until I realized I need to follow step 2 closely and switch my wifi to the ECO connection for the setup time. Yay! After closely following the setup guide I connected the device without any problem and it works great and uninterrupted even away from home. Love it!
It works if you do it right!
Was trying to buy a more expensive version from Lowes but they kept selling out! Walking through Walmart me day & came across this and said hmmmm! Might as well try it, for only 20 bucks! Wanted to control a window unit air conditioner for an open house! Didn't think it'll work because the air conditioner is digital and doesn't turn back on with the power! But to my surprise it actually turned the air conditioner on & off and all the temp settings etc. didn't reset! Been using it for a few weeks now and I can regulate the temperature in the house from over 300 miles away! Only if the real estate agents or customers don't touch the unit lol! All that said, I will be getting more of the advanced ones in the future! I want to be able to use the monitoring status feature of the app!
Great and Super Cheap
This plug was so cheap I was scared it wasn't any good. Setup was so simple, connecting to Alexa was even simpler. I'm going back to the store to pick a few more ASAP
best Wi-Fi Outlet
easy to use very technical, probably the most versatile Wi-Fi Outlet on the market. compatible with Alexa, has a switch, also controlled with the app
Item didn't work
After reading the quick guide, downloaded the App and plugged it in. No lights, no communication with app. Follow the reset procedure. No lights, no communication with App. Uninstalled app, re-installed, change outlet and replugged in. Same results. Emailed support, got response to follow quick guide. Returned item. Win some lose sum
Stay away from this product
It started out as the instructions said. That's where everything went wrong. The app for it is total garbage. I could not select any Wi-Fi router for it to connect to. It automatically connected to my neighbor's router and I couldn't change that. Then after being plugged in for about 1 minute(still attempting to set up) it stopped working. I tried to reset it to default settings and it would not work. It's completely dead and will not reset. What a waste of 20 bucks.
