    Great Product

    Not sure what the people with the bad reviews are doing wrong. Mine works great. I first tried with one, then added 3 more. Works fine remotely too. With Siri you need something like AppleTV for remote control, but even that works fine. We've used them for two 2-week vacations, all without a hitch, and about a dozen weekend ones since getting them working flawlessly.

    And yes I've tried a few other manufacturers plugs all with limited success -- most don't last two weeks before they hang and need to be unplugged and plugged in (hard to do when you're away). Since I'm pleased with this I'll next get their switch product to control the outside lights.

    Works great once set up

    These can be a little "fiddley" to set up, but once that is done I have found them to be quite reliable. The recent addition of energy consumption monitoring is really nice. My one real gripe is pricing. $99 seems a lot for the new outlets and wall switches.

    Works Great With HomeKit!

    I purchased one of these and then immediately bought another. They integrate great with the HomeKit app and home automation functions. I can't wait to try out the new hard wired wall switches also.

    Great for Turning Dumb Appliances into Smart ones

    I have used several different smart home plugs and switches, and this one has a couple of things I preferred to the others.

    1. The iDevices app is easy to use, and walks you through the setup/installation of the Switch. It also allows you to change the color of the light on the Switch, whereas the built-in Home app in iOS 10 does not have that option. The app also lets you monitor energy usage of the Switch, which will come in especially handy when I use the other Switch I bought for controlling our Christmas lights later this year.

    2. The light is actually a really nice feature. I didn't think I'd use it much, but it's essentially a nightlight for the humidifier I connected the Switch to.

    3. The Home app and Control Center screen is my primary means of interacting with the Switch, and it has always worked well. I have a Time Capsule near the Switch, as well as three 4th Gen Apple TVs acting as HomeKit hubs in my home, so I can remotely access the Switch as well, all of which has been reliable.

    The only reason I wouldn't recommend this is because it's still fairly expensive if you're just looking for something to turn an appliance on and off from a few feet away. It's a convenience, and you pay for that. All in all though, it's been a great product!

    Great products

    Love these products. Easy to integrate around the house. Voice commands with Amazon Echo/Tap couldn't be easier. Game changer!

    Great switch I can use anywhere

    I initially bought this switch to work with my Christmas lights. Was tired of playing with mechanical timers and having to adjust them to do what I want. With this product everything worked exactly as I wanted first time. I was even able to program every scenario I could think of with the new app they have recently released. Have two of these and can't wait till the wall switches come out later in beige. Will be buying several for the house.

    Works well!

    Does exactly what I want it to do. I'm able to control my TV's power and turn on some lights automatically.

    Pretty good once it gets going

    Yeah, as other reviewers have mentioned, it's a pretty flakey set-up. But after that I've had few problems. I do occasionally get the unresponsive message that others have mentioned from homekit on the lock screen, but usually when I unlock my phone and use the full app it works just fine. Love have my space heater and fan go on and off at the perfect times before, during, and after sleeping.

    Turn any thing into a smart thing

    Simple gadget to connect a normal plug into your HomeKit lifestyle. I use this for my Christmas tree and it's so cool to tell Siri, "deck the halls"!

    Would love if it were $15 cheaper, but it has never failed me yet so I guess the price is worth it! Cool product, will be buying again when I need another.

    I love that my pets are never in the dark

    I have a one of these on all of my lights. I love that I can set timers so that my pets aren't in the dark while I'm at work. I loved the switch so much that I also purchased sockets and the outdoor switch. Set up was really easy and it's great seeing how much money my electronics use. It's made me scale back on how long I leave my outdoor lights on.

    Love the night light

    I own the outdoor switch, wall switch, 3x outlet plugs. Everything but the outdoor switch work perfectly. Love the night light option, which I though would be annoying, but the whole family likes the night lights. Had to use the alternative pairing method for one of them but has worked fine since. The outdoor switch needs to be cycled every few days like other reviews mention. Not having a hub sitting around is nice. They are a little pricey but build quality seems good.

    Works great!

    The switch was a breeze to setup with the iDevices app on my phone. The best part is that it automatically shows up on my Home app which allows me to have one place to manage all of my smart home devices.

    I loved this switch so much I ordered their new light switches as well.

    Great product!

    I have 6 of these connected to lights throughout my house. Have set up lights to come on at the time I get up in the morning, and even combined with ecobee motion sensors to turn on lights when someone enters a room. Works great when I leave a light on at home or want to turn a light on in the middle of the night since it's easier to know where my phone is than get to the lamp. Love them!

    Gateway Drug

    I purchased a set of these and an outdoor plug before Christmas to make it easy to schedule my lights and turn them on and off remotely. I had no clue this would lead me to a whole home overhaul. They work fantastically with HomeKit as well as other brands' home automation. Would buy again and will buy more.

    Switch on Switch off

    I Purchased the iDevice Switch to operate my theater rack equipment fan in order to incorporate the fan in my power on scene and have not been disappointed. Purchased on 10/2016. Downloaded the app, ran through setup, received a firmware update, added the device, programmed the scene in Simple Control and have not touched it since. Also of note... I now have illumination in the rack! What a great feature. Love it! Homekit compatible as well! yes...
    The 4 stars, and not 5, from me is based on the click noise when powered up. For me it is a non issue as the switch is located in the equipment room. But for some this could be startling the first couple of engagements! I will add though that It is quieter than the other three I purchased and returned.

    Used to be 5 Stars

    2/25

    Found out today with an upgrade to the app you can not do it remotely. The firmware will not update.
    It has to be done locally. So obviously, if you're on vacation - it won't work. Otherwise, it's a decent product.

    Misleading ads

    The lack of a hub requirement is repeated several times but one IS required if you want to do more than simply turn the switch on and off (and only while in your home).

    DOA Product. Don't buy

    Unfortunately this product was unable to connect to my HomeKit even after doing several resets and wifi dances. Bad product based on this first interaction with iDevices, probably would avoid the company in the future.

    They lose their connection half the time

    These are great when they work. But the problem is they return "no response" half the time. Making them useless.
