Great gadget, offers you peace of intellect when you are absent from house as you can control lamps.

I’m seriously satisfied with this item.

Really handy bit of technology. Incredibly very simple, useful bit of kit that helps make daily life a great deal much easier. I will be getting loads extra to backlink everything up. Fantastic presents for ‘techie’ friends and household as well.Here are the specifications for the Efergy Ego Smart Wi-Fi App Remote Control Energy Monitor Timer Home Power Automation Socket:

  • – Appliance Control: Switch an appliance or a group of appliances from your smartphone
  • – Energy Monitoring: Real-time or Historical energy consumption display
  • – Schedule Timers: Set timers for automatic switching of devices
  • – Standby Elimination: Set the ego to turn off appliances left on standby for too long

When pressing the wifi button on just one of the units it feels and sounds like new, however, the other unit has got the wifi button form of unfastened and does not truly feel or sound like new. The button looks to be displaced inwards. This was straight out of the box. On calling amazon support crew, they have organized a refund. Now, for the practical experience i experienced with the products. It provides the basic performance as explained. Just checking the consumption and removing wasted standby by switching the system off by using a created-in rule and has scheduling principles for switching the unit on/off. Even so:1- the unit or the app does not allow for for exporting the information for further more manipulation (like the wemo insight switch).

Have two of these efergy ego smart. The button broke soon after 9 months of extremely pretty light-weight use. Or else good product or service that does what it states. Would invest in an additional if i was just unfortunate.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Being disabled it has saved me a lot of painful bending when I need to switch the sky box
  • Smart idea, but not without flaws
  • Plugged it in and it went bang, but Efergy not interested – UPDATE

Plugged it in and it went bang, but efergy not interested – update. Received today, plugged it in and it went bang and blew my house fuse. I’m trying to get a replacement from the original vendor energymonitorworld as efergy, the manufacturer, is not interested even after being contacted by amazon. Also note that efergy will not accept contact by phone anymore – a worrying sign i usually find. Update: energymonitorworld were very helpful in arranging a replacement, so thoroughly recommended. Regarding the unit the set up was easy and it has a nice look and feel. However the interface seems a little clunky so room for improvement on a future update (hopefully). For example when setting a timer you have to touch ‘save and exit’ when you are simply backing up from the day to the hour setting, prior to actually saving the timer, and the countdown timer does not show countdown progress and only shows that the countdown has stopped if you back out of timers and go back in again. Also i have had one timer episode that did not switch off at the end – trying to work out why.

Doesn’t support dual tariff. . The only thing i don’t like is it doesn’t support dual tariff. Also, it should have better history of consumption, not just estimated cost for this week, or “cost so far” for the last 24 hours. Graph in the app is useless.

It is very efficient and works very well. I use it to control tv time for children and it is really helpful putting a time limit for tv usage.

Hard to tell how accurate it is, but simple to use and produces some really interesting power measures.

Tried the restthis is the best. I’ve tried a number of different products but have found this to be the best. I’ve owned it for nearly a couple of months now and love the intuitive functionality and simplicity of the app. It’s a great product and has already saved several £’s of energy consumption. It makes you realise how much waste there is. The construction is very sturdy and i wouldn’t anticipate having any problems. The design is a little bulky if you have a tight fitting plug socket like mine which is next to a radiator. I did just squeeze it in though 🙂 i imagine the next generation of these will reduce in size considerably though its not really much of an inconvenience. In summary, just buy one and see how much money it will save you over the course of a year.

Really useful bit of technology. Very simple, useful bit of kit that makes life much easier. I will be getting plenty more to link everything up. Great gifts for “techie” friends and family too.

Great to be able to see live stats of my electricity usage. The standby mode function, where it will kill the power after the usage has dropped below a certain limit for a certain time is great. From a nerdier angle, they’ve stated that an api will be available soon.
