    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
