Finally got it to work. After finding a comment left on Kickstarter by one of the developers, I was able to get it working. You need to connect to the unit in your WiFi settings on your phone, then open the app and connect your unit to your WiFi. Then go back out and connect your phone back to your normal WiFi settings, then go back to the app to control the unit. It's definitely not as simple as "plug it in and control it" like they try to make it sound. I'm kind of scared though after reading comments about meltdowns.
Unreliable Works half of the times. Have to switch it 2 or 3 times to turn on the light I've connected. Remote control over the phone network doesn't work.
The Android app portion of this product is crazy bad, but I respect that the features are at least there enough to work in the most basic sense. Toggling a plug on/off works reliably and that's all that really matters to a lot of use cases. The hourly/daily timer settings are tricky to figure out at first but it works. I have two of the plugs and one of them insists it needs a firmware update but fails to ever update. The app works 'on the cloud' too, not just local wifi like some apps, so I've got to give it that. Overall the Android app sucks in terms of UI and reliability, but it does work. The latest version 6.0 keeps my GPS on all the time, and I'm not even sure which feature would need to use the GPS. Luckily permissions on Android Marshmallow are granular, so I just disabled the "Location" permission and I'm good to go.
Ok On my Samsung Galaxy S7, the Advanced feature doesn't work or stay turned on.
