Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG SMART SOCKET Very useful addition to a smart home. Especially useful for a usually inaccessible socket. Operate plugged in lamps or appliances from anywhere. Program to turn on and off with the Easy to use App. So useful I now have 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product with detractions This is a complete pain to set up, once done it's fantastic but be warned, DO NOT USE to power any internet equipment. I made the mistake of using this socket to control my AV set up, with one side for AV the other side for normal permanently on use to power router etc. Power cut showed up it's weakness, once power restored it obviously wouldn't work without wifi but no wifi because it wouldn't work, catch 22. Had to plug router etc in to a normal socket which meant running an extension thus adding to the clutter I was trying to avoid so now I have a twin socket with one side unused & useless because I can't have it permanently on as it won't work if the internet goes down contrary to what they say in the blurb. Apart from this failing it works great and is much neater than a big adaptor type plug.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mind of its own Like the idea of this instead of plug in smart sockets. That said after several weeks of use I have found it unreliable. It often goes offline for no apparent reason, fixed only by rebooting router. It also switches on without prompts from Alexa or the app (had electric fire connected!). Will go back to plug in smart sockets. Disappointed

Samsung SmartThings connection?

Does this connect to Samsung SmartThings?
Asked by: DanJ82

When are they going to fix IFTTT?

It says supports IFTTT in the description here and on the box, but it does not support it.
Asked by: Eddie111111
Hi Eddie111111, We are sorry that IFTTT was not available from launch as we had intended, we took some advice early on which proved to be inaccurate and so had to start again from scratch with the compatibility. We are now quite close to rolling the function out, so keep an eye on the features information on forthcoming BG Home app updates to see when this happens.

Standby power

What is the standby power consumption per hour? Trying to work out if this will be better than leaving items on standby?
Asked by: MTESK
Hi MTESK, The listed `standby' power consumption is <0.3W (so less than 300mW).

Can I use this socket with an iPhone 11?

Asked by: WireWeaver
For the iPhone download the BG app from the AppStore. App is required to connect the device to your WiFi. Once connected the individual outlets can be separately named to allow control with Alexa, or you can control directly from the app using your iPhone (especially useful when offsite) Can also set timers and program on/off times for each socket.

Asked by: Neilruston
Hi Neilruston, Currently our BG Smart devices work with the proprietary BG Home app, and also the Amazon Alexa and Google Home skills of the same name.
