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.

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.
