Could not connect to my wifi Even though my network is not using IPs of range 192.168.10.x, the app keeps complaining and would not configure. Allows very short passwords, so would not connect to my existing wifi. Tried creating a guest network with short password but the app keeps complaining about ip range. Tried wrong password also and got same message, so this means the app does not bother attempting to connect before it gives up for some foolish reason. Dont waste your time. The plug is going back.
Unsuccessful I tried multiple times to get it setup, about 2 hrs, but I gave up. Tried updating the software using wifi, but the App would crash. It is a good idea if you can get it setup.
The updated version for Marshmallow works as expected. I tested it on my Nexus 7. The plugs are not very smart though. There is no way to group the plugs. I would like to see an option to tag each plug with group tags so I could turn on or off a group of plugs.
What a pile of crap! I wish I had read the reviews for this before I bought the "smart plug". Absolute and utter junk. Does not work at all.
They work well once configured, but... The AH357 smart plug cannot be initially configured with Android 6. It can be configured with Android 4, and I did not test with Android 5. Once configured, the smart plugs are very easy to manage. However, there is no 'name following' in the Amcrest Connect application, each Android device used to manage the plugs will needed to have the plug names manually entered in the app, if you prefer naming consistency across Android devices.
What a fool believes.. So I just got my S7. Had an S3 for about 3 years. Anyway downloaded Amcrest Connect on the S7 and was transported back in time to when I first went through the ordeal of connecting my 2 Amcrest switches. I have a 38 year IT background including applications, network and systems programming retired as a department Director. My hobby now is configuring Ip cameras and home automation web relays for friends and family....I've had better luck on a craps table.
1. Fix compatibility with Android versions 5.0.1, 5.1.1, and 6.0 (Lollipop and Marshmallow) - These versions can now configure the smart plug and it to the wifi network.
1. Once the plug has been setup, the app may not register that the plug is on the network. Simply switch to the Device List page and the plug will be shown.
