Sounds like these don't work with modern routers that automatically switch between 2.4 and 5G wifi

I already have TP-LINK (Kasa app) smart devices.

When you mix brands, whare are you guys using to control them (program timers and so on)?

1 app per brand, or is there an app to rule them all ?

Good deal. I bought the 2-pack last Nov for around $25. I really like that you can control the plug and the USB port independently or all together. The app is decent too to program schedules. Works flawlessly with Google home.

I bought a 2 pack of these before (they go on lightning deals once in a while and sell out quickly). The Smart Life app is used to configure them and you can control the electrical outlet and USB separately. I don't really use the app anymore and use my google mini to turn it on/off manually if I want (it can turn the USB port on or off also). I have them both on timers and have the USB port on part of the night to charge my phone. I have the TP-Link ones also but prefer these because of the USB port.

You can control them with Google home, but I think you still need the native app (ie Kasa for TPLINK) to schedule stuff.
So at the end, you still need to install all apps (1 per brand)?

That is correct, Kasa and the globe app. I understand what you are saying but it's pretty hard to stay with one brand when you are considering the price difference between brands.

Can anyone confirm or deny that this is the case?

Don't like the 10A only maximum load on these. I don't see any ETL or UL certification on these too.

True!
Especially for 3 ways dimmer or other products harder to find.

The tp link mini is only $15 at the microsoft store . Imo it's is worth the extra $4 per plug to get the better known brand with a higher amp rating.

Damn, just switched everything over to Telus Wifi boosters so I guess I keep looking.

What app will I need to install on the phone, what permissions does it need, and does it get regular security / firmware updates?
