I've had one since summer of 2019. Been great for gazebo lights and a bug zapper in the summer time and Christmas lights in the winter time. I think I paid $25 for it. At $20 its a no brainer

Chiming with praise for this device also. I use a couple of them in my infrared sauna to turn it on and off, they've been fantastic. They've also survived in there over 6 months now, with daily use, and temperatures sometimes reaching as high as 75 celcius. These things are incredibly well built.

Do you plug this into a GFCI outlet? If so, isn't it weird that it just hangs off the outlet?

Or are you guys plugging into an outdoor extension cable?

Not anymore. Latest Canadian Electrical Code mandates “covered when in use” receptacle covers in new installs.

Bought one even though I have no outdoor outlet. I'll think of a use for it later. Indoor TPlink switches have been working fine for the past couple years, so i expect this would work fine outdoors...

Thanks...

I can tell Alexa to turn on/off a plugged in light with this?

That’s what I’m wondering about too. My outside plug has a cover. If I plug this in the cover will pop open. What is everyone doing ?

I have a different brand of wifi plug but my outdoor plug on the house is deep enough to close the cover and there is a spot for the cable to exit on the bottom of the door and the wifi outlets are hanging below.

Yes. In fact you can give a different name to each of the 2 outlets and address them each individually.

Bought these a couple weeks ago. Works well with my google home minis.

I tried connecting it to my wifi and it wouldn't connect, once I reset my router, it worked.

Great for my backyard string lights. And I love the manual button to turn it off/on.

LOL I'm trying to justify spending 20 bucks on this, as I already have an outdoor two-outlets extension with a photosensor (from Canadian Tire). I think the one I have actually makes more sense for things like Xmas lights as it is fully automatic (unlike the smart switch where you have to do it manually every night), and doesn't depend on your WiFi being operational... But the smart one is more cool for sure :)
