      I bought 2 - work as expected, will be buying more

      I didn't bother with the Elgato app because I already know how much power the lamps draw from the socket. My main use for these is as internet controlled switc I didn't bother with the Elgato app because I already know how much power the lamps draw from the socket. My main use for these is as internet controlled switches. These plugs integrate straight into iOS. I have an apple tv4 and remote control from outside my network works fine. Siri commands work fine, and quickly. I like the ability to be able to switch multiple sockets on and off at once. I like the simple-but-powerful timer functionality, and especially the sunset and sunrise events which act as a photo diode substitute. Bit expensive maybe, but the potential they give for automating a whole house is incredible.

      A simple on/off switch

      I purchased one of these and now I'm going to get another one. I am using the first as simple programmable switch to power a table lamp and replace an old unrel I purchased one of these and now I'm going to get another one. I am using the first as simple programmable switch to power a table lamp and replace an old unreliable electronic timer. They are quite expensive for a switch, but the convenience of being able to quickly change the on and off times make them useful. I recommend that the first time you set up timers is to use the Eve app and not the Apple HomeKit app as I had problems with the latter and the lamp not turning off when they it was supposed to. The Eve app take a bit of getting used to, but try to learn how it works and you will be successful. The only advantage of the HomeKit app at the moment is being able to set a timer at sunset and sunrise. I would like to see this feature extended to, for example, switch on at 30 minutes prior to sunset. There is no technical reason why this could not be achievable.

      Great

      I purchased one plug to see how well it worked. I am happily impressed. I waited to get one for a while because I wanted it to work with HomeKit and it was the I purchased one plug to see how well it worked. I am happily impressed. I waited to get one for a while because I wanted it to work with HomeKit and it was the first in the U.K. To do so.. For features and apples excellent approach to security. Setup was straightforward and fast (except my Tv see below). Reliability so far is 100%. I can use the plug with Siri, or control centre to quickly automate it. As well as the Eve App and Apples Home App. Home App scenes have a sunset / rise feature not in the Eve App btw. I really like the simplicity of the Home App combined with Siri and control centre. Only issue I encountered was with HomeKit and my Tv. In order to use HomeKit you need keychain enabled and to use two-factor authentication. When I enabled the latter on my iPad it did the same on my iPhone. But when I went to use the HomeKit app it wasn't showing my Tv as a hub. Without that you cannot automate it away from home etc. It turned out that I needed to sign out of my Tv and then sign in again, now with two-factor authentication (which was active now from turning it on with my iPad). Then it all just worked, and my Tv set itself up with the Home App. It was a bit frustrating for the two days I spent scratching my head and looking at manuals and forums Until I came across the solution for myself by trial n error. More detailed help for trouble shooting setup issues would be great. Other than that teething problem, I really like it and intend to get more. Great to be able to monitor power usage too as a bonus.

      Works a dream

      I purchased one to test as I want to control lamps in my lounge. Setup was very simple and whilst I installed the Eve app, I have tended to use the built in Hom I purchased one to test as I want to control lamps in my lounge. Setup was very simple and whilst I installed the Eve app, I have tended to use the built in Home app to control it. It has worked 100% of the time and using my Apple TV as a hub required no setup and has worked without issue. I'll be ordering more very soon to complete the project.

      Disappointed

      I purchased four of these to work with my Apple TV 4th Gen, I hoped to use the Automations and geofencing options. However after a month of trying I or even App I purchased four of these to work with my Apple TV 4th Gen, I hoped to use the Automations and geofencing options. However after a month of trying I or even Apple couldn't get them to work reliably, locally you could turn on and off the devices all be it slowly, however the Automations would just not work or very rarely work. Big disappointment as both Apple and Elgato have good reputations, I've ended up selling them and gone for another system.

      Very disappointing

      I bought this to control some outside lights so that when we drive in we switch on the lights but it will only work on one phone so my wife cannot turn on and o I bought this to control some outside lights so that when we drive in we switch on the lights but it will only work on one phone so my wife cannot turn on and off the lights. I called the helpline and they told me to switch on and off the lights manually. Well, i think that defeats the object of a wifi plug.
