This was super easy to connect with Alexa. Love it!
It works great! By:
This has been working for me with absolutely no issues. I have it controlling my outside Christmas lights and I basically set it and forget it, awesome product. I paid for it so this is a real review. It is not in direct sunlight and is under my porch and no issues whatsoever.
The best... By:
Best product, great price, awesome app, perfect customer experience. Told all my friends. I could b their representative!!!
Outside Christmas Lights with Alexa By:
No more stepping out into the cold to plug in my outside Christmas lights. Alexa takes care of that for me. I needed a plug that could survive the cold as well. It hasn't gone below 0 degrees Fahrenheit this year as it's done in previous years, so I haven't been able to test that yet. But, it's worked flawlessly as low as 10 degrees so far. No problems. Glad to have the two port, each of which can be independently be turned on or off. Alexa works great with it. Easy to set up.
Excellent purchase worth every penny By:
This far exceeded my expectations! Left it out in snow storm and 15" of snow and a massive rain says later, everything melted and after all that water the plug still works perfect. I thought for sure it would be a goner in all that water but it still works perfect. Highly recommend. Easily connected to wifi and works perfect with Alexa
Awesome little device, hooked up to my Alexa, works like a charm. By:
Love it !!!
Easy Installation By:
I set up 2 of these in less than 5 minutes. (I first tried a WiON outdoor switch. I could not set it up over 4 days.) They work very well. I highly recommend them
Great product that was easy to use! By:
Great product! Easy to set up and add to google Home. Provides three switch options. One for each plug and a group one that is perfect for Christmas lights
Quick, easy setup. By:
This outlet is great. Took 15 minutes to set up and connect to Alexa. Another a brand I tried I spent 3 hours trying to get it to work and couldn't. This world very simply and I am very happy. It is controlling out two outside deck Holiday lights.
Works! By:
Using this to control my Christmas lights and it works perfectly. Set up was a snap.

Easy By:
Easy set up
works great By:
Used it during travel to control several outlets, test before trip and based on the cam they worked as promised.
Very easy to configure. By:
This dual plug is perfect for a situation where you might want to control two devices from the same wall socket independently and still have the second wall socket free. I found the device to be extremely easy to configure with the app and works well with Alexa. So far I have found no cons and plan to purchase more.
Incredibly helpful this holiday season By:
I absolutely love this device. It's incredibly well built, simple to use, and is compatible with the Smart Life app. I use it to control my Christmas Lights outside. With three switches, I could do so much more. The Smart Life app recognizes EACH OUTLET as it's own switch. At the moment I don't exactly have a reason to use each of them on their own, but I have this so I can grow with it. I love being able to time my lights to turn on right before I come home. It makes the holiday so much more merry.
Love them By:
I love it, now I can turn my kids TVs , game and computers off from the comfort of my bed.
Great Idea Great Value! By:
I found these to be very useful and easy to use with Alexa.. 10 Stars for the value and convenience!
Can I say Aweome By:
Does what it says, also a plus is you can control all 3 plugs separately. Great for giving alexa control of your christmas lights!
Weather protected smart plugs!!! By:
Works as advertised. Easily interfaces with “Alexia “. I use it to control my backyard lights and waterfall pump.
Easy setup By:
I received the plug and had it setup in a couple of minutes. The timers work fine in the smart things appTHe switch on the plug turns all of them on or off at once. The plugs can be given their own name and Alexa has no issues turning them on or off.
Great buy By:
You just have to download their app. It's supported by iftt which is super easy to use. Just follow instructions

Works great By:
Product works great. I use it with Google home with no problem. I would it also had a traditional timer, but maybe I just haven't figured it out yet. The instructions are very small and seem outdated to their current app. But it is pretty easy to figure out.
Controls 2 outlets separately, via Wi-Fi. By:
I've used this outlet to control my Christmas lights and a water fountain pump. I like that the Smart Life app lets me control and program the 2 outlets separately. As a bonus, I can use it with Alexa. It's bullet-proof so far.
Simply Fantastic! By:
I was nervous this wouldn’t work very well like so many of this type of smart plug on the market. Was I surprised. It works really well and is super simple to use. From out of the box to connecting it to WiFi was maybe 10 minutes at the most! And that’s including setting up the schedule for my outdoor Christmas lights on the app. Simple to use and the ability to have two separate items going off and on at two separate times if needed! I’d buy it again in a heartbeat!
Easy to sync! By:
I had purchased another brand of smart plug and could not get it to sync to the app, so I returned and purchased this one. So glad I did! This one synced to the app on the very first try and works perfectly. Could not be happier.
Follow the directions By:
I received this product today and set it up to work with Alexa in about 20 minutes. The directions were not quite as straight forward as I would have liked but I followed it as written. Wasn't sure it was going to work but it did. I previously read other comments that recommended using the app first, which I did, and once working through the app was able to move on to Alexa with no problems. The plug is outside on my back deck although right next to the house. I plan to buy another one as this one worked so well.
Great Product! By:
This outdoor smart plug works as advertised. It was easy to set up and synced it with my google home. Technology advancements at it's best. I use this plug to light up my string of lights in my backyard and the convenience and the functionality of this product is so exceptional. Highly recommended!
Very Good Outside Plug By:
Works very well as a timer or Alexa activated device. It is controlling my outside lights this year and doing a great job.
Well built By:
Very well-built and easy to use. Serves its purpose perfectly. I feel like it’s a good value.
Just works By:
I’ve had this for two weeks for outdoor Christmas lights and has experienced some heavy rain conditions.Software is easy to set up. Alexa compatible. Not a fan of blue light showing unit is on.
Great By:
I have several of these and they're great. Alexa integration is very good. You can apply commands to each plug, or both at the same time. Will be getting more of these.

Works great for holiday lights. By:
Happy work great wish they would work with google instead of amazon voice control
Great for the price By:
Brought 2 and they work great!
Worked perfectly first time I sat it up By:
Replaced a POS I bought at Lowe's for $10 more. There's never would stay connected to the wifi. This one works perfectly. Easy breezy to set up too. AND, it has TWO outlets, not just one like the one from LOWE'S.
Same WIFI network across your app, modem and gadget By:
Awesome product! took me 1hour to figure how to connect to Alexa.. After all my frustration I read a previous review about having Alexa, Cell phone and The gadget on the same network.. works as expected
Work as described - Great cost effective solution. By:
I had a similar unit for Xmas lights control and couldn't find it. I went to order another since I didn't have the time look through all the stuff in our garage (its there somewhere). I found these units on AMZ and they were the half the price of my other unit, so I said what the heck order two of them. I figured if they didn't work, I would return them to AMZ with their ironclad guarantee. Didn't have to, worked as described and quite happy with them. These units do not require a hub and you install them with your router. Haven't quite figured out they do other then the units first power up as a router and then you connect and they become a pass through to your regular router. I have other devices that use this method and it seems a bit odd but it works. Either way, no hub or setting up a network account with someone. They have been in for several days not and work great. I now have a very interesting Networks, my hub system, Wifi bulbs using a network account to store schedule and settings and now these devices. As long as I can keep it straight as to what device belongs to which network, should be good.
Reliable and Easy By:
This is my third one and I absolutely love it. I have one for my outdoor fountain, lights, and now my Christmas lights. I love the app, makes it so easy to adjust the times as the dusk and dawn change over the year. Highly recommend 👍🏻
Good Quality. Good Price. Durable! By:
I've used this WiOn outdoor wireless Plug-In for a year now to control my dog house heaters while I'm at work. I wanted the heaters to be on in the chilly mornings, but off later in the day when it warmed up. This product is perfect: I control it from the WiOn app on m iPhone. I turn the outdoor heater before I leave for work and then anytime later via the app, turn it off! This model doesn't have it's own timer but that is a small matter to control the off/on myself. It's a good and simple, and Ilike that.I've had zero problems. I recall having a bit of a problem syncing it up the first time, but I tried a couple times and it worked; I didn't have to call support or anything. I bought this item on faith because it was reasonably priced, especially compared to the many other products of this sort, plus it seemed to have a lot of satisfied purchasers, and I've been completely happy with it.
I'd give it 6 stars if I could By:
I bought this timer a few years ago to help automate some outdoor lights. I liked how it could sync to sunrise/sunset and update to daylight savings. This thing has worked flawlessly since the initial purchase. Every night the lights come on, every night they go off at 1130pm. Amazon is great because you can find many obscure items such as this - but often times you're rolling the dice. This was one of those that worked out!
Great Product By:
Works just like advertised. Very user friendly.
Work great By:
These work great have five setup for Christmas lights. Easy to connect to WiFi and the app and easy to program. You can name each controller on the app for easy ID if you are programming differently or want to manually control, all for just a few dollars more than a good dial control timer.
