The new skill works well with alexa. Pairing and set up easy and quick. Only point to notice is that the mains sockets are the cheaper version in the range which are one way ie. They do not know if actually turned on/off as don’t report back or monitor energy usage. The description states this and they are much cheaper than other models. For simple devices which aren’t critical/dangerous if left on (eg. Bedside lamp) this is great.

Good piece of kit sometimes struggles with my wifi though.

This is a absolute amazing product which i have been waiting and looking out for years. I can now automate most of my house around my family’s routines. I originally purchased the mihome hub and 3 adapters but now have 9 adapter’s all around my house over all 3 levels of the house. I wanted to use the adapters on regular timers to turn on and off my home devices around our routines but also wanted family members to be able to override the pre-set timers at their own discretion, the mihome app has allowed us to achieve this as it is installed on all of our smartphones and tablets. The only problem i had at first was one of my 3 adapters did not seem to follow the timing commands all the time which i found a pain, but i learnt it was my ow doing as it was the only adapter that i linked far away from the mihome hub. You are suppose to link them close then move them away, once i relink this adapter it then behaved much better. Also i would recommend being patient when turning the adapters on and off via the app, allow 10 seconds as your request of on or off is not just occurring in your home. ; your device logs into your mihome account then sends the request via the internet to your home adapters-so even if your at home it still requires the internet. I am eventually going to buy even more adapters for my mihome system and would like to do some little projects such as turn on my home heating via an adapter controlling an arduino or pi that will send wirelessly the command to my boiler to turn it on. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die Energenie Amazon certified Alexa smart plugs 3 pack:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 3 Smart Plugs and control hub
  • Add additional smart plugs from less than £10 each
  • Includes MiHome Gateway – build your smart home system
  • Free iOS and Android App; super simple set up in minutes
  • Ask Alexa, or use the App from anywhere in the world

Once setup, works a treat (alexa is seamless too). Purchase this more from a security point of view whilst away, once setup they worked perfectly. Please ensure port 9998 is setup on your hub, otherwise this system (and similar systems like this) will not work, this should work normally but if not, check your hub. Setting up the hub was quick and painless, download the app, scan the barcode and in a few seconds you’re connected. Pairing the sockets was straight forward too, however i did find out that you need to pair the remote control first and then pair the socket with the hub second but once done no further issues. Seems to work well with the remote control, there is a delay (to be expected) using your phone as the signal is doing more of a journey. I’m afraid i did drop 1 start for a few issues (certainly not showstoppers) which are:- the app is basic and only works on a phone , no ipad version. Given the big selling point of this is the use of a mobile device anywhere in the world, this was a little disappointing. – the app does not know the state of the socket, if i press the button on the socket (on/off) this is not represented within the app, this also applies if i use the remote control. The problem here is the app may show the device as on when in fact it’s off and vice versa, again given its purpose i wasn’t expecting this – i have now installed two monitoring sockets which overcome this issue and correctly show the state and the wattage being consumed.

Excellent best thing i ever purchased. I use with my amazon alexa and it’s great. Can’t wait until the double and triple light switches come out. If you need customer service they respond really quickly on email as well as i had a question about other products.

Great home automation for security and convenience. . I’ve had this setup running for quite some time now. I have several wall socket adapters turning lamps on and off on a schedule and also connected to amazon dot. I haven’t had any of the problems described in some other rather negative and unhelpful reviews. I have no problem with signal strength. Also, after a power cut, the hub appears to sort itself out without any input from me. Very occasionally i notice that a lamp has not come on or switched off for some reason. This happens maybe once or twice every six months (that i notice). For me this is not a big deal. The lamp just corrects itself next time it receives an instruction.

Easy to setup and use only problem is if you. Easy to setup and use only problem is if you have 3 times setup you cant change the last time or delete it so you need to delete one of the previous ones to then change the time.

If you need a cheap smart socket and you’re smart about placement this product is for you. . The product is great when it works, the only issue is the reliablity. I have had this product for about 6 weeks and i am quite pleased with my purchase, i bought it for £38 during the 2016 black friday deals and for that price it is definitaly worth it although for it’s full price i would be hesitant. It’s cheap (in comparrison to something like the samsung smart things or wemo)2. It works most of the time although over to much of a distance or throught to many objects it can get patchy. It’s not particlarly reliable when it has to operate through objects (if there is more than about an inch or two of mdf in the way between the gateway and the reciver it is 50/50 wether it will work all this means is you have to press it twice ocasionally but that can be anoying. If you hit the button in the app it can take anywhere from half a seccond to two or three, if you want something faster go for something more expensive like the aforementioned samsungs smart things, or wemo devices. Allinol, buy n large the product is good when it works and as long as you are careful of placement it will work however because of it’s falkyness over a distance i would only buy it if it was on sale.

Home automation that takes alexa to a new level. I bought this to expand the amazon echo and i wasn’t disappointed. Voice activated sockets (using alexa with the gateway device) with built in timers combined with ifttt (if this happens then do that) means endless possibilities. The mihome skill and ifttt triggers have made the days of awkward reaching for lamp switches a thing of the past.

Next version might be worth it. . I had written a scathing review of these plugs, but i’m updating it because my goal was to have amazon echo control things around the house. The system didn’t work, but as if today, amazon echo has enabled ifttt in the uk and these plugs have some use. Now i can say to alexa “trigger lights off” and it seems to work. Three times it if teni still these feel like i’ll be binning and replacing in a couple of years when the technology works better. Reason: it just isn’t real-time or 100% reliable. Using the remote has a 2-3 second delay. But ifttt, or using the mobile app is rather hit and miss. Sometimes you can wait a few minutes and it happens. Occasionally it responds in a few seconds. Sometimes it doesn’t respond at all. Other remote control plugs are instant.
