    Just with it did energy tracking

    • Written by PETER L from OAKLAND

    So, I have two iSP6s and one iSP8. All three SmartPlugs work great. There are two differences (aside from the price) that are worth noting: the iSP8 comes with a clicker and has energy tracking. The iSP6 does not. For me, the lack of energy tracking is kinda a bummer because I'm a green kinda guy and want to know what my loads are using. The clicker thing is not a big deal because there aren't that many use cases where it's useful to have an independent want to turn the load on and off. Otherwise, I think that for most use cases, the iSP6 is the better fit.

    This product actually works with homekit

    • Written by Andrew N from Portland

    This product actually works with homekit.

    It took me 30 seconds to install this plug,
    directly into homekit.

    This is compared to the two wemo plugs that i also bought:

    It took me 10 hours over 2 days of trying to get the wemo plugs to work.
    By some miracle (and a ton of end around fiddling),
    I did finally get the wemo plugs to register on homekit (with a bridge),
    but I have absolutely no idea why, or how I did it.

    Wemo seriously needs to get its act together.

    Won't work on my network

    • Written by Joe R from Los Angeles

    The iHome products will only work on a 2.4ghz network. My router is a 5ghz network, so I can't even see the devices on my network. Wish I would have known that before buying.

    Unable to communicate with the plug after a power outage.

    • Written by Chi H from NORTH SALT LAKE

    Like the title states, after a power outage the plug is useless, one must reset and add the plug again, waste of time...

    Constantly Disconnects and Needs to be Reinstalled

    • Written by Neil S from Atlanta

    We have had five of these installed for the past year or so, and they are constantly turning on and off arbitrarily - usually about one to two dozen times per day - and they eventually need to be deleted and reinstalled. This means taking the time to reassign to any programmed scenes or automations within HomeKit - every time. We have replaced with a competing product (iDevices) and have had absolutely NO issues with the performance. Basically, a waste of about $250, because iHome product support is nonexistent and not able to return the product at this point. Will not be purchasing ANYTHING produced by them in the future.

    Terrible support

    • Written by Gary T from Innisfil

    I hope the most recent software and OS fix the problem of constantly disconnecting. I emailed for support and it took so long for them to reply that I had (5 days) tried many things on my own. I found, with this product, that resetting it and then connection it to the WiFi network using IOS settings first, fixe the problem. Their answer was exactly what did not work.

    HomeKit App is the problem

    • Written by nicholas M from Olathe

    The plug works just fine. The problem I have with this is the HomeKit app capabilities or lack there of. Says no hub required, that's a lie. It requires a hub in order for you to use the automation portion in the app and to access it when you are not home. Most smart plugs can be accessed away from home and can be automated without a hub. This one cannot. The hub has to be either an Apple TV or an iPad. I know most people that have Apple products have one of these but I do not. I just have the iPhone8, which should be more than capable to be the hub. Other plugs have all the capabilities under one app without a hub. Seems like Apple is a little behind on this one.

    Work Wonderfully

    • Written by Logan M from Pflugerville

    I bought two of these recently and I couldn't be happier. I like the fact that using HomeKit where my Apple TV acts as a hub I can remotely control the switches. It's almost instantaneous too. I did notice during setup that I had issues when I was configuring the wifi connectivity over 802.11ac. Those issues cleared right up when I switched my iPhone over to use 801.11g then setup the switches wifi connectivity. If you have connectivity issues I recommend doing this as well.

    Falls short

    • Written by Andrew B from Peterborough

    This is a great idea in theory. I bought it and when it arrived I needed phone assistance from iHome support to set it up. Once it was up and running it worked alright. Once added to the Home app you're supposed to be able to ask Siri to turn lights or whatever you're plugging into it on or off. Most of the time Siri can't communicate with it so I was left to manually engage the device over the Home app. We had a power outage today and although the iHome plug wasn't damaged it stopped working. Following every step perfectly it refused to connect again after almost 4 hours of coming back again over and over to make it work. Returning it tomorrow.

    I bought two so I could try these out and wow. Easy to setup and easy to use. I went back and purchased 12 more. Not a single issue with any of them!

    Lights flash randomly, lose connectivity often

    • Written by Chad G from Beverly hills

    I purchased seven of these to connect to lamps in my home. And every single one of them will periodically turn off and back on for no reason. This is especially annoying for the lamps next to my bed. When I open the app, it says the device is unreachable so I have to reinstall it. There is no reason for the device to become unreachable, because I have a stable and strong wifi network. I really liked the idea of controlling my lamps through Apple Homekit and Siri, but unfortunately this product isn't reliable.
