I've had several routers since I've had the power strip, so I've had to remember how this all works every time. When following the directions, you'll want to press the green LED button and immediately press go on the app. Just the green LED flashing doesn't seem to be good enough. Otherwise this has worked relatively well once setup.
I agrees with reviews that says the power strip arrive very late. In fact I got the package out of the blue more than a year after I forgot all about it. I have worked with the strip for more than a year and have change internet providers and wifi routers and the strip still works fine. You can control four individual sockets and it does give power usage for all sockets individually. However you will need to setup an account with them and if that server service ever goes kaput, the strip will probably be useless then. So who knows how long that gonna last.
Questionable safety Granted this is a review of the product more than the app. I purchased the kickstarter power strip. When I received it, it wasn't UL listed as the creator claimed it would be. As I have recently had a house fire, I have no desire to go through that again and will not allow $99 to put my family's lives in danger.
Kickstarter! After reading the instructions I was having problems setting it up but I read carefully my mistake was holding down the Green Led button. Just press it after 15sec it should start blinking. I like the info the app provides . overall I give it a 4.5 installed it on my kids room. I love it has 6 outlets and 2 usb's.
Not a fake review. Actual purchaser. While I will agree the product arrived with very little documentation, it did have a sticker on the box with the activation instructions and product ID. I downloaded the app and synced my power strip in 30 seconds. Very happy with the product.
Work's perfectly for me so far To no time at all to setup. Works exactly as I expected it to. You of course need to have the Smart Power Strip to have this app work, mine arrived today and I am very pleased.
