Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG Home smart sockets Great value for money and very easy to set up and use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not work! The app from BG is next to useless, can be a struggle to connect, then it comes back with an error when you try and give a name to the socket. Also, after going through that it will not do a firmware update... then they go offline... If you can them back online it's random if you can switch them on/off from the app. Being returned.... Also check online, these are known issues which BG have failed to fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bought six of these to control disco lights up near the ceiling in a man cave. Downloaded the app, followed the instructions and now able to switch each one on or off using my phone - love it. You can even create a 'scene' and turn them all on and off at the same time. Delays and timers are also available along with the ability to select different parts of the day. Thinking about fitting more of them in the main house.

What colour is the light ring. Is it only on when the socket is active?

Asked by: PeterWS
Hi PeterWS, There are two coloured lights in the ring, but you would only normally see the blue power indicator (which does go off when the socket is off yes), the red pairing light is only used when setting up the socket or if there is a disconnection from the Wi-Fi network which sends the socket into `offline' mode.

Switching on /off

Do you have to use an app to switch these sockets on /off, or can you tap the round things to switch on /off - as if like a standard switched socket?
Asked by: Growup
Hi Growup, There are indeed circular physical switches on the sockets, inside of the power indicator light rings.

Maximum wattage

What's the max wattage . I want to use with a 2kw freestanding heater ?
Asked by: neilcw303
Hi neilcw303, The inductive switching capacity of each socket is only 800W, although the resistive is 3120W, but most electric heaters are at least partially inductive so we cannot be 100% certain whether your particular unit would be ab acceptable load or a significant overload and therefore we would have to recommend that you do not use the socket to control that heater.

Will this work as a non smart socket

Can this socket work as a non smart socket ? I don't want it to be connected / paired with Alexa or Google assistant. I want to be able to use it like a traditional socket by pressing the on off switch !
Asked by: Jav1234
Hi Jav1234, Yes, if you don't download the BG Home app and add the socket into it then there will be no smart function, so the buttons on the socket will be the only way to operate it just as with a non-smart version.

Are these compatible with the smart life app?

Asked by: DiyEric1
Hi DiyEric1, We have a specific app to control these sockets, called BG Home, plus identically names skills for both Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and the sockets are also fully IFTTT compatible (so if Smart Life uses IFTTT it should be able to talk to them).
