    Elgato Eve Energy Competitive and Capable

    I purchased the Elgato Eve Energy and have been using it for about a month. The product works perfectly. It is responsive and I have not yet had a moment where something didn't seem quite correct.

    Furthermore, The energy consumption monitor is superb. There are numerous other devices on the market that monitor energy and can control the power state of a fixture but this comes with the ability to really dive deep into the energy usage via the Elgato Eve application.
    Elgato Eve's application is far superior to other product based applications as it is more robust and allows for much more complex automation to be created by the user.

    Great Product!

    Stopped working after 4 months

    - The plug worked ok for 4 months, was plugged in and working fine, but one fine day suddenly stopped
    - All the documentation included with the item, and online is out of date. Kept mentioning press a button on the side to reset. There is no button on the side
    - Called customer support, very courteous and available on Sunday. They also repeated the same instructions - to press the button on the side. When I mentioned there was none, they went to the lab to get a real product to check. Found out there was no button and that the LED in front not side was also the button. Pressing that did not reset.
    - Started a case, so will probably be replaced under warranty.
    - The customer service person asked where in the world I was calling from - which is understandable - as they have different product versions in different parts of the world. However, the people working on the case started the case by asking the same question over email.
    - One star, as it has been forever since I bought something which stopped working within few months and under warranty. Not the best use of my time to follow-up on warranty. Have bought similar products from iDevices which have been working fine without needing any special attention.

    Perfect for use while on vacation

    This product is exactly what we needed for when on vacation. For years we would just leave a bedroom light on to deter anyone who thought the house would be a target for theft with all the lights off for an extended period of time. Now we can schedule the light to come on at dark and off during the day which saves electricity and better for the environment. It was very easy to pair and one of the best features is you can manually override the schedule if need be. Will be good for Christmas tree usage as well!

    5 stars for sure! I would get more, but at $50 a unit, it makes it hard to justify. Its solid though.

    eve energy

    I can't believe how easy it was to set up and even easier
    to use. I have kicked many chairs or tables leaving
    a dark room in the past at night headed to another room but
    never again. This is a must have in all my rooms

    Defective - tuns off at random

    After using the plug for 24 hours, it is very clear that this plug has a very serious problem: It turns off all by itself at random. This happened to me 6 times in one day. I wondered if this was unique to my individual unit, but after reading the reviews on amazon I realized that other people are having exactly the same problem. I am returning it for a refund.

    Pretty cool to see where my electricity is going!

    I've had the Energy for a month or so now and have been using it with my mobile devices to see how much power they use when charging and how much they use when charged up. I love it for that. I should hook it up to other appliances as well to see how much energy they are using and see if I can replace any with more efficient devices.

    I also would like to hook it up with the motion sensor and get some true event triggers happening. I'm just getting started with this home automation stuff! These Elgato Eve devices make it easy to set up. I wish they had more support/use docs on their website.

    Simple Setup - Works Perfectly - App could use some improvements

    I've got 4 of these now and am very pleased. They're extremely simple to set up and use. I have access to my outlets wherever I am now. They've worked great with absolutely no issue.

    The app is decent but the interface could be improved. You have to hold and keep your finger on it when using At A Glance mode otherwise it'll turn off the outlet. Not a huge issue but I have my fridge on one of these and am fearful I might accidentally turn that off.

    In general, this is a great range of products.

    turns off by itself

    This would be a 5 star product, if it actually worked.

    I hooked it up to a wall air conditioner. It turns itself off randomly every couple hours. In one day it will turn itself off 3-5 times.

    I tried multiple units and they all produce the same problem.

    Works!

    I purchased two of these units and they work well. Easy set up, good integration with HomeKit, and good Bluetooth range. Will be getting more!

    Super easy setup, works just as you would expect!

    After getting Phillips Hue lights I became obsessed with HomeKit enabled accessories. Being Christmas time, I decided to get two of these switches to plug my Christmas trees into so I wouldn't have to go downstairs or upstairs to turn them off when I'm cozy in bed. The setup could not have been easier, simply plug them in, download the app, put in the serial number of the device and done. Works great with Siri and HomeKit. Now I say "Hey Siri, turn off my Big Christmas Tree" and she does! Love this!
