What makes this plug different?
The Edimax smart plug allows you to switch your devices on and off through your smart device as well as monitoring the power usage while in use. You can receive emails notifying you when your device has been switched on and off, as well as being able to schedule the switching to a time when you are not at home.

How easy is it to set up?
Setup couldn’t be any easier and is all done on your smartphone or tablet. Plug the item into the wall, download the app from your respective market and connect through the Wi-Fi options to your plug. Once you open the app, it will ask you to connect to your home wireless network, and when you have done this it will now automatically pair up the switch and the router for you to be able to use anywhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps losing connection and programme I have persevered with this for a month, but will be taking it back for a refund tomorrow - despite good wifi coverage for everything else in my flat, this device keeps forgetting it's connection to the router once a week or so, and I have to get out a ladder to go up to an inconvenient spot (the reason I purchased it in the first place) to turn it off and back on again. Even after a reboot the scheduler functionality (another key purchase issue) "forgets" to turn itself on. Neat design, easy to use though to program the timer settings you have to do each day separately - there is no ability to set the same times for every day etc. Not recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very difficult to set up I bought this yesterday and have spent all evening trying to set his up. I successfully managed to achieve this on the 2 hour and it functioned correctly. I stupidly tried a factory reset so that I could take it to another location and now it won't establish a connection. Tried IOS, Android!!! Way too much trouble. It will be returned.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesnt work with Alexa I was hoping to find a way, if not directly, then via Yonomi or iFTTT or similar, to control this plug using Alexa. It appears that I would need to write my own. Whilst this isnt too hard to do, I would rather spend the same money on something with out the box support. Other than that, it does what it says on the tin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flexibility I bought this to add to further ones already bought in the past. I chose the Edimax unit because I found Python code examples on the web so that I can use these devices with my own code as well as the Edimax App. I have written code under QPython on Android devices but a PC or Raspberry Pi could equally well be used. I haven't tried using these from outside the home, only from my local network and have had no reliability issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more noisy mechanical timers! I have recently bought two of these for a bargain price of £7.50 each and I have set them up successfully...follow the instructions carefully and patiently and it all goes to plan! I have had some issues with the app when I'm away from home and was not able to remotely access the plug timers but I will try again - it may have been that my internet at home was down. Overall, so far, I am delighted with these plugs and the silence they have brought to my rooms! Just the ticking clocks to sort out now! :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok but not as advertised...! BIG problem is that it does NOT monitor power usage as advertised. Bought this to monitor and control different rooms. Setup is easy enough and schedule takes a bit of trial and error. May send this back

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as sold When I purchased 2 of these it stated on Maplins website it worked with Amazon Echo, it does not. Whilst I found these very easy to set up with my phone app it is not what I wanted from the product and will return when I get chance.

Is this the SP2101W model with energy monitoring, or the SP1101w model that just switches off/on?

Asked by: Nick
I would advise you to amend the description: "The Edimax smart plug allows you to switch your devices on and off through your smart device as well as monitoring the power usage while in use. " This plug DOES NOT allow you to monitor the power usage, only turn the device off or on.

Just purchased 2 of these and it states on the description "Works with Amazon Alexa voice control system" but there is nothing to say how to set this up, please confirm how this is done please. 

Asked by: Uncledaya
Following in depth enquiries it would appear that the Edimax plug is not suitable for use with Alexa / Echo dot.
