What internet provider are you with that you have a need to spend $10 to remotely power cycle your modem that often? Asking so I know who not to sign up with...
How do you remotely power cycle your modem if you don't have Wi-Fi ?
EDIT: Nevermind I just figured out that you could set it to a timer.
I'm not the OP but I have to recycle my Fido hitron modem about once a week even after getting a new one. Once that contract was done I switched as fast as I could.

Can I connect the plug to google home mini without installing Globe app?
You can use it with Google Home Mini....however you need to set it up using the Globe suite application first...as you need to initially setup up the Globe smart bulbs/plugs using it first... Then if you would like to control them using the Google mini... You will then use the Google Home application to link up the Globe Suite application to it.

Cheers

Not currently... But a support person from Globe electric mentioned last time when they were on sale about two weeks back that they are working on a new firmware for the plug to allow power usage monitoring....no eta

Well set mine up tonight for an outside yard lamp. I got it paired right away, and can manually turn it off and on. I did setup a dusk until dawn action for it, but it wont work. But I think its because I set it up after actual dusk so it might take until tomorrow to work. Will see if it turns off in the morning automatically in the morning

Does anyone know if you can set a dusk until a certain time setting. Or is it just dusk until dawn.
