Ratings and Reviews
I have the Wi-Fi outlet and use the north outlet app. First off, the device was challenging to set up. The directions didn’t provide places/links for you to stop at a part to complete the task and then move on to the next step. It wants you to remember all the steps and then go complete them. While I was reading the directions by accident I pressed the done button and wasn’t able to bring back the instructions. That is a feature I didn’t enjoy. I went to the website to find a tutorial or just the directions and it said to refer to the set up on my phone. Not very helpful. Once I figured it all out the device was connected!
Here is why I gave this app only two stars (I maybe too generous). There is a bug with the app that when it is opened it says that the device is already turned on. I have a light plugged into the device and therefore know that it isn’t on. The big issue with this is that the timer function won’t work then. It is tricked into thinking the device is already turned on. What is the point of having a Wi-Fi outlet when you always have to log into your phone to turn on the light. It would be faster for me to walk across the room in the dark and plug it in.
I really hope they fix these issues soon. If they do I will definitely change my rating because the product, as I said, has potential of being a really good item.
Doesn’t connect anymore
So initially the app setup was difficult, as the same issues happened with me as the other reviewer. However after taking hours to set it up, it still worked, albeit with some flaws. I recently got a new phone and downloaded the app again to reconnect it to the outlet. This time, it refused to detect the device at all, even though I followed the proper instructions to reconnect and had the blue flashing light for pairing mode. Could not find help or get help on how to reconnect my outlet with my app. A waste of time and money, would not recommend buying the outlet product nor downloading the app.
Make my Black Friday really black: no light with this device. The app is terrible, you need to had an user and password (for a energy plug? Come on) and to after to try to connect to WiFi was terrible, don’t know if they really connect, all this happened between 50 times the app closing by itself without cause. Lost like 2 hours trying to fix it and the result is waist more time to return everything to brandsmart tomorrow.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
