My home was recently wired for a generator. I thought I’d acquire these plugs and leave them running for a while in order to obtain a true picture of how much power each of my electrical appliances takes. I was interested in learning how frequently appliances like a freezer or refrigerators cycled on and off.
I installed one of these plugs on my refrigerator but discovered that the control device for monitoring temperature and other factors uses enough electricity to fool the plug into believing it is always on (any measurable amount of power shows as “on”, even under .1 watts)

I adore the app, all the symbols available for naming the device, how simple they are to set up, and the pleasant little click that occurs when I use the app to switch off my gadgets. It is effortlessly linked to my Google Home app and complies with all of my habits. For reference, I have them connected to two Christmas trees and a lamp.
I’m not sure what to use the fourth one for just yet since the rest of our lights are smart bulbs and the majority of the appliances I’d like to plug in (coffee maker, Dyson fan, old tv, etc.) still require the power button to be depressed. The plugs are completely faultless.

During the holidays is when I mostly utilize these plugs. I’ve never seen a connectivity issue if you leave them linked after they are. It might be annoying to set up several plugs when it takes many attempts to reconnect after being disconnected or unused for months (but they usually do). Overall, I have not yet discovered the PERFECT smart plug, and this one functions just as well as the others. I would advise
ALIAS from Southampton
Like most people, I rearrange my family room each year to make a place for our Christmas tree. However, despite having a foot pedal-style switch for the tree, it always ends up between the sofa and the tree and is thus challenging to reach with either hand or foot. I made the decision to test these outlets this year, and thus far, I’m extremely pleased. Installing the software and setting up the switch for my phone’s WiFi was quite simple.
Now I don’t have to reach dangerously around the decorations; I just open the app and light up my tree. I don’t know the range of connectivity because my router is in the same room, and I choose not to connect to Alexa because I like the app as is.
