Orbivo, the Belkin WEMO Knock off - $18.99USD ($25.51 CDN) Free Shipping
- Deal Link:
I was shopping around today and came across this company called Orvibo, an obvious knock-off of Belkin WEMO (even the same Green similar logo!). Unless they are affiliated, this is clearly a knock off.
The Orvibo, just like WEMO, can be controlled via your mobile devices, as the Orvibo is connected to your home network. As long as you have data or wifi and the Orvibo is connected to your home network, you can turn the electronic on or off from far away.
I am usually very skeptical of buying Chinese made knock-off electronics, especially when this one connects to your home network, but Orvibo is also sold on Amazon, which makes it a lot more comfortable for me to try out. For $18.99 USD ($25.XX CDN), it is not too expensive of a gadget to try out.
Below is a link to Orvibo's main website:

The Orvibo on Amazon:

and on Aliexpress, which is currently on sale right now until the end of the week.

$7 cheaper than Amazon, which also has it on for sale right now at $32.99.
The only negative review I've seen so far are some people having trouble with the android version of the app. I am guessing it doesn't work too well on older phones.
Anyways, happy hunting.
