Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says The smart socket is just that and a direct replacement for most socket about the house. Ive installed them in various places, notably in external enclosures, which through the app controls my exterior lights on timers. Ive never had an issue with the product or the app

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Become a smart home Straight replacement for a standard 2 gang socket. No extra tools or knowledge required. Works with app and Alexa to remotely operate the switches from anywhere. You can still manually switch off the switches as well in addition to being able to program multiple on/off scenarios in the app. I have 5 now as i gradually change all my home sockets to these. I intend to stick to these as they work and are extremely good value for money. Connecting to the Wi-Fi is just a case of patience and method as described in the comprehensive instructions. Not one of my installed products has lost its connection yet and has worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Smart "Smart Socket" Purchased one and now have four. Piece of cake to install, just a straight swop over (Power off first before starting work). Dead easy to set up with the house wi-fi. Don't be put off by some comments; I had two units that were finding it difficult to connect so I followed the instructions to connect them via the BG App wi-fi. Go back to basics when naming the Smart Socket and the individual left and right socket. The design and quality of this Smart Twin Socket is superb. Just make sure you purchase the correct profile because BG make a slim round corners profile and a square corners one. A very satisfied customer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t bother Fitted this over a week ago so when the Christmas tree is in place we can turn the socket off as near impossible to reach the socket once in place. So far it’s crashed 3 times and had to move everything so I can get to socket to repair it with the WiFi. I have a cheap plug in socket elsewhere I have had for years and they give zero problems. This item is not fit for purpose.

Can these sockets be operated while I am away from home, i.e not connected to my home network / wifi but instead via internet access on my iphone and the BG app ?

Asked by: AlNoble
Hi AllNoble, Yes, once installed into the BG Home app you can control them remotely from any internet connection globally (as communication is bridged through a cloud server).

Can this be retrofitted into existing BG Outdoor IP66 Socket enclosure? Also what happens if the wifi disconnects, will the socket turn itself off?

Asked by: TommyLl
Hi TommyLi, The 822/HC has been designed to appear the same faceplate shape as the rest of the 800 series, but there are significant enough differences that they don't fit correctly into the Storm range socket enclosure. We do make a version with an adjusted product already installed, our code being WP22/HC [British General IP66 13A 2-Gang SP Weatherproof Outdoor Switched Wi-Fi Controlled Socket (894PG)].

What is the power consumption of the wifi/smart socket?

I am not worried about the power consumption that will be used on the socket via other appliances. It would be great to know how much power is needed with the wifi/smart features of the socket.
Asked by: IckyChimpanzee
Dear IckyChimpanzee, The stand-by Power is <0.3W.

Can I convert a single socket to a double socket using this?

Asked by: Tezzuk
Hi Tezzuk, If you have an existing single box in the wall then you're not going to be able to fit a double socket to it, the mounting screw holes are nearly twice as far apart as the ones in the box. Therefore, you will need to install a double box or use a 1-to-2-gang convertor pattress.

Can you use an extension with these

We currently have our TV and PlayStation on an extension cable. As we don't have enough sockets for both. I know extensions aren't recommended but we have no choice. Would that be OK to use with this socket.
Asked by: Rebeca
Hi Rebeca, As long as you don't overload the socket then the use of an extension lead shouldn't be a problem, and if you overload the socket then you would be overloading the extension lead as well (most likely) so this likely isn't happening.
