Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Smart Plug The plug was a bit of a faff to setup. My mobile was on 5MHz and I had to reset to 2.5MHz during the setup. I don't know if running the plug on my wifi extender made a difference but I had to revert to the manual setup to get it working. Also, the button switch didn't always seem to put it into the correct setup state every time. However,it works well now it's up and running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brillant & easy to install Thought I might have difficulty setting this up but at 69 yrs old I manged to set it up to my Alexa. Great for switching off my fan when I'm in bed and on again if I wake up hot. I move it downstairs in the day time to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Smart Plug Works well and had no issues since installed. Did need to split 2.4 and 5 GHz bands but connected easily. Works well with Alexa.

Can you schedule it to come on and turn off at particular times?

Asked by: Nicktherunner
Hi Nicktherunner, Yes, there is the option to set timer events through the BG Home app to cause the adaptor to switch on or off at whatever time you require, and as many times as you need to.

Can this be safely plugged into an extension lead so I can control the power for one device?

Asked by: Ash230
Hi Ash230, There is no reason to expect any issued from plugging this smart adaptor into an extension rather than a wall socket, in fact we have been long-term testing several adaptors in extensions and so far they have behaved no differently to the ones in wall sockets.

Can I plug a 4 extension lead into this plug running Christmas lights or will it be too much power?

Asked by: Rcstewart
Hi Rcstewart, The sockets are capable of switching 13A loads and a little more besides, so as long as you're not overloading the extension there shouldn't be any problem from the socket side.

Won't connect to sky broadband says won't work with 5g but I thought sky was 5 and 2.4 g any ideas

Asked by: Augustine1
Hi Augustine1, It may be that you need to temporarily disable toe 5GHz portion of the signal, or split the two bands into separate signals with different names, within the router interface - then you can be certain that it is the 2.4GHz signal you are using. Alternatively as you move further away from the router the 5GHz signal will have a lower overall range than the 2.4GHz so you may be able to find a socket location where only the 2.4GHz signal is strong enough to be used (you can return the socket to a closer position once it is in the app).

Can these units monitor power consumption through the app?

Asked by: Dermie
Hi Dermie, No, the sockets are designed for smart control only so have no power monitoring capacity.
