Frequently asked question
Sorry, currently it cannot support Apple HomeKit. But it can work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. We have forwarded your feedback to our product team for further improvements. :)
Smart Plug has multi-voltage support and works in the range of 100-240V. But the voltage standard marked on the label complies with the local market's standard. Please check the size and specifications if you need to use this Smart Plug in another country.
Based on what I have seen with all wifi smart plugs. You should look for a different plug, maybe one designed for outdoor use and one has a higher wattage rating (FYI, this will most likely be a better choice, i.e. handle higher loads, and will be safer).

You should look for a different plug, maybe one designed for outdoor use and one has a higher wattage rating (FYI, this will most likely be a better choice, i.e. handle higher loads, and will be safer). This unit is rated for a max wattage of 1800 W (=15A x 120V), however, it is best to keep the total wattage used to about 70% of the max rating, therefore 1260 Watts (=1800W max x 70%). The max load, i.e. 1800 W, is commonly tested only for a short amount of time, e.g. 10 minutes, and is not designed to handle an 1800 W load for 1 hour or longer. This is why you see these units fail, abuse.
It can turn the power to the coffee pot on and off but it you have to push a button to start the coffee , it won’t start the coffee brewing. There would have to be a switch that you can leave on for this to work but most residential coffee makers have a push to start button that activates a relay. I hope this helps.

Good product, but doesn't work with Google Home reliably
I ordered two of these on sale for $14 each, and I’d say I got what I paid for. Yet another app on my phone is unwelcome, but necessary to set them up and control them directly. There’s a button on each plug that allows you to quickly toggle them on and off, and that’s useful for me because they are easily accessible, not so if it’s hidden behind a TV or cabinet.
I have a reliable Google Home setup in place, and I logged in to the service as directed, and found two unfortunate roadblocks with Eufy smart plugs and Google Assistant.
1) The name you give your plug matters. We use ours with two lamps, and I had to name it ‘Living room light’ for the command ‘turn on the living room light’ to work. Originally the plug had the name ‘Living Room’, and then asking Google to turn on or off the lights won’t work. In their defense, this isn’t really a failing, because you can use a whole lot more than lights with these plugs, so the fact that I have to specify what’s plugged in to them in the name is something I warn a buyer about, not a problem.
2) Google Home is certainly unreliable when it comes to these plugs. I have two Google Homes in two separate rooms of my house, and almost every time I go to ask for a light switch, Google swears it’s not available. I can ask one Home to flip the lights and it won’t work, but I can ask the other Home on the same network and it’ll work a treat. Sometimes both Homes say ‘the living room light seems to be unavailable’ and I can pull out the Eufy app and both lights are connected to the network and working just fine, especially with their own app. It’s sad that I can’t use my voice to control these reliably, but the short reach to the app or to the button on the plug doesn’t make it a deal-breaker, just a product apparently too cheap to be reliable.
I do suspect this is a software issue with Google/Eufy however, because the app and button is as reliable as I could ask for. I suspect there’s a bug with Google’s systems and Eufy’s systems, and I implore the developers to fix this. For comparison, I have several other smart devices on my network and Google never fails to control them.
The energy monitoring isn’t something I use regularly, since my house is already somewhat energy-saving, but I appreciate that I can just use a $14 plug to measure energy instead of buying a more expensive Kill-A-Watt. As far as I can tell, it’s accurate and easy to understand.
Four stars for being another cheap and functional quality product from Anker(owners of the Eufy brand), but one star lost for advertising compatibility with Google Assistant, something that flat doesn’t work in my tests.08/18/2022Verified Purchase
Eufy Smart Plug now works with Google Home.
Eufy Smart Plug does not work with Google Home.
Eufy Smart Plug does not work with Google Home. The Eufy app works flawlessly. The button on the smart plug works flawlessly (and the Eufy app sees the state). Google home simply does not see the plug (‘the Living Room Light seems to be unavailable’). I have confirmed my Google Home Mini, my Android phone and the plug are on the same network (an ‘N’ network, since the AC network does not work with the plugs). So they should be able to communicate with the Google Home Mini, but cannot. Again, the Eufy app on my phone works flawlessly, but Google Assistant on my phone does not see the plug, so it is NOT an networking issue. Bummer. NOTE: I did not have the same problem with the Eufy smart bulbs, they all worked. Another thing worth mentioning, I had a smart bulb named ‘Living Room Light’, but then removed that and added the smart plug instead and named it the same thing, it may be a naming confusion on Google Home’s part. My next step is to delete Eufy from Google Home and re-add it in the hope that is clears any naming problem.
OK! That fixed it. The issue was probably a naming collision since I had a smart bulb named ‘Living Room Light’ that I had removed, then added the smart plug and named it the same thing. To fix this, in the Google Home app on my phone, I removed the EufyHome app from the Google Home app: in the Google Home app home screen, open the menu in upper left and choose ‘Home Control’ – that will bring you to the Home Control screen. On the Home Control screen, choose the menu in the upper right (3 dots) and choose ‘Manage Accounts’. In the Manage Accounts screen select the ‘EufyHome’ service and then choose ‘Unlink Account’ from the contextual menu that pops up. Save. Then go through the process of adding EufyHome back into the Google Home app and your smart plug will start working again. (I closed the Google Home app before adding EufyHome back in, but I don’t know if the is necessary)
Update: The fix worked for about 10 minutes, now it is back in the original non-functional state. Neither the Google Home Mini nor my Google Assistant on my Android phone can control the light. The EufyHome app works find. So I can control it from my phone with the EufyHome application and set timers and the like. However, I wanted to be able to just turn it on with my voide. My recommendation, if you want to control this with your Google Home Mini or other Google Home hardware device, then (…removed…).
Update: After posting this review (which was two stars at the time) a Eufy representative called and left me a message saying that they know about the problem and are fixing it and offered me a coupon for their online store for my inconvenience (I did not take them up on it, as I did not want to change my review until the product was fixed). In fact, it is now fixed. My Eufy home plugs all work fine. I have a plug that controls my living room light and a plug for the kitchen light. Both work well and provide a lot of convenience. My only wish now is that Google home did not respond verbally when I ask it to turn the light on or off, it’s not necessary unless it cannot do it. That however is not a Eufy issue, it’s a Google issue. It is clear the Eufy is highly focused on customer service. Eufy is the Anker home brand. I have had excellent success with everything I’ve purchased from Anker. I also own the Eufy wireless vacuum and it really excellent given it’s very low price. So I am very pleased so see that Eufy combines excellent customer service with their fine products.
So I would now recommend this product to others if they are at least a little sophisticated with their phone, as the setup requires using both the Eufy app and the Google Home app. For instance, my kids would have no problem with this, but my Father-in-law would not be able to handle it.08/18/2022Verified Purchase
