Rated 4 out of 5 by from SMART SOCKETS Decided to try these in the teenagers bedroom as they always leave everything switched on. Brilliant, easy to fit, downloaded the app and took some time to connect but works a treat, I can turn the sockets off when I am not at home. Will need to have a go at setting up on the Alexa App too. Will be buy-ing more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality sockets I've installed two of these sockets over the past two years and both have failed on me. One failed safe, and would not turn back on, the other failed by turning itself on and off repeatedly, even after I reset it to disable the wi-fi connection. To save the time and effort of having to swap a socket I'm now just switching to pass through smart switches with a dumb socket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY reviewer I have 2 of these replacing standard sockets behind a wall mounted TV. Easy to install, easy to set up and great value for money. Works well with Alexa. Definitely recommend.

Burning out

I've had smart plugs burn out where I've had my heater plugged in. Want to buy, however I read somewhere that anything with a motor is an inductive load. Could you please comment as you say your circuits are resistive, thanks
Asked by: MsKazza
Hi MsKazza, The inductive load rating for these sockets is 3.33A (800W / 0.8kW), so if your heater is consuming more than this level of power then it may cause a similar issue with our sockets as well.

Can this work off a Phone App alone?

Hi, Is it possible to operate this socket off a phone app alone...or is a piece of hardware such as Hive or Alexa also required?
Asked by: FC86
Hi FC86, Yes, primary control of our range of Smart sockets and adaptors (and soon light switches as well) is via out proprietary BG Home app, there is no requirement to also use any smart speaker system.

Does socket remember state after power cut?

Does this socket resume automatically to ON state after a power cut if it was powered on before power was lost? I have a fish tank that needs to be powered at all times.
Asked by: TimWR1
Hi TimWR1, When power (and router Wi-Fi) are restored the Smart device will double-check with the cloud server what state is is supposed to be in and set itself that way, but in the meantime it will remain in its previous state (if router Wi-Fi isn't available).

can I control an oil filled radiator with this socket and can I switch off power to each individual socket on the device or does it just switch on/off power to the whole double wall socket

Asked by: pajero600
Hi pajero600, Yes the sockets can be individually controlled through the app, or have individual timer events set for them (again through the app). As long as the radiator in question doesn't overload the socket's switch mechanism (13A, 3120W / 3.12kW) then there shouldn't be any issue.

Does it make a noise when turned On/Off?

Does the switch make a clicking noise when the state is changed? On to Off or Off to On?
Asked by: T1MK
Hi T1MK, Pretty much all relays make a clicking sound, some louder than others, so we can't say there is absolutely no noise when the sockets switch on or off, but in most situations it's not a problematic sound and so may not even be noticed usually.
