Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job nicely Bought this to control a heater in my conservatory. After reading other reviews, I first wired it up to a plug and set it up next to my router, having disabled the 5GHz frequency. Setup was very simple, and although the instructions were a little sparse, I now have it working through the App on my smartphone. Although I've not used it, I have set it to work with Alexa so it can be voice controlled. Great value as long as you follow the instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Smart Sockets These Sockets are great, as easy to install as any other double socket. The downside came during the setup process, this was a pain and I had to call BG for Technical support. They need to improve their app to make setup a bit clearer, but once setup is complete it was smooth sailing and easy to use. Works perfectly well with my Google Smart systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Socket Easy to install (says my electrician), easy to set up and great value for money (less than a smart plug). Works well with Alexa. Definitely recommend. Too early to comment on reliability but reviews all seem good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Excellent value for a smart double socket. A little tricky to set up but eventually figured it out and works well with Alexa. Can control the outside lights with ease (the socket is indoors of course). Likely to buy more.

Would this be able to turn a kettle on by an app? do you need any other accessorie to go with it?

Asked by: Jennye123
Hi Jennye123, Yes each socket can switch a full 13A (3120W / 3.12kW) load, so a kettle shouldn't be any problem. All you need is a smart device to run the app and an active 2.4GHz signal from your router.

What size (length, wight and depth) back box goes with this?

Asked by: Kanch
Hi Kanch, Any standard double socket sized box which is at least 25mm deep internally should suffice, e.g.:- British General 900 Series 2-Gang Surface Pattress Back Box 30mm (44707); British General 900 Series 2-Gang Surface Pattress Back Box 42mm (65187) etc.

Can I use this with an immersion heater?

The immersion heater is currently hardwired but I could convert to a lead with a 13amp plug, to then plug into the 2 gang socket.
Asked by: FabAct
Hi FabAct, That will depend on the load of the immersion heater, the smart sockets are capable of switching loads of up to 13A or 3120W / 3.12kW per socket.

Insulation test

Is there a problem when doing insulation test do you need to disconnect the socket or will they accept 250 volts or 500 volts
Asked by: Ps8780
Hi Ps8780, As a device designed for UK power systems with a nominal voltage range of 220-254V the sockets will certainly cope with any 250V insulation test, if you were to run a tied Live and Neutral to Earth test then 500V shouldn't cause any problems either as the potential on both sides of the smart circuitry will be the same so no power will be flowing through it.
