Frequently asked question
No, you don't press anything. You just put your hand there and pray it worked. Cause there is no feedback that you did it right. And there is a delay on the switch. Poor user experience.
No, this smart WiFi light switch can not dim the lights. We will launch a dimmer soon, please keep an eye on us. For further support, please feel free to contact us via the link below, https://www.amazon.com/ss/help/contact/?sellerID=A99MZGWBBIGK9
Yes you most certainly can. I have mounted in a dual switch box with a regular dual switch plate.
The timer works from the app if you want to set up like outdoor light or a fan to countdown from the switch. I think the schedule function is better.

The solution I've been seeking....
I have this great ceiling fan in my room. The remote doesn’t work well at all. Basically have to stand on the bed and be like 2 inches from fan housing to shut it off. So in Florida at 3am in the winter, we might have our fans on when we go to sleep, but wake up freezing early in the morning. My first solution was a digital count down switch timer (60-5 min increments). It was great, but had to get out of comfy bed in the middle of night to turn back on or off. Here comes the Etekcity WiFi light switch at a reasonable price. I had already loaded their vsynch app on my device because I purchased a Etekcity WiFi kitchen scale that Bluetooth information to the phone, so I was familiar with the app and it’s stability and features. So here’s the first thing you need to consider when purchasing a WiFi enabled device like this. Pick your ecosystem. Each manufacturer uses their own proprietary app to control the device. However, in the case of this device, after installation, you can use your Amazon Echo device to control the WiFi switch. You can also remotely, like while I am at work, turn the switch on and off from my phone. That is cool. But the real reason for this long drawn out story is to tell you how I solved my comfy bed story. Now I can just ask Alexa to ‘Turn on/off fan’ and she takes care of getting out of bed and doing it for me. A lazy man’s dream. Now on to installation….
I had some problems with setup due to a poorly indicated link in the app, which i recently emailed tech support to address. After I figured out the right link to click everything worked flawlessly. However, I was surprised that my Centurylink DSL router did not provide 2.4gHz connectivity. So I had to buy a $20 Netgear extender https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L0YLRUW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 , which solved the problem, and now I get stronger internet outside my house as well.
Like other reviewers I was a little worried about disassembling the face plate from the switch as I needed to add it to a two switch wall outlet. See Pic (FYI my face plate was already cracked prior to installation). It feels like when you remove the face plate provided with the switch that you are going to crack it in half, but it actually removed without problems. Wires were extra long, which is good, for those of you who might need to snip some off or need extra length. and the inclusion of good quality wire nuts was a great addition to the package.
Very happy that I don’t have to get out of bed in the middle of the night anymore. I already ordered my second switch for lighting purposes, and a bunch of WiFi plugs from Etekcity that use the same app.

Works well alongside my other Vesync wifi outlet adapters
Since I already had this brand of outlet plugs, I wanted to get the same brand for these wall switches. That way I only have one app for lights, etc. I am now using two of these for the porch and deck light switches. Works fine with Alexa. Only two negatives which I think I can solve. One, my subwoofer on the same electrical circuit now makes a light tapping sound when it is not in use. Subwoofer is always on and must be picking up something in the house wiring on this circuit. The other issue, I am not using the included wall cover plate on one of these switches, because there is a switch next to it. So I had to use a wall plate that has a regular light switch hole on one side, and then the GFCI hole for this wifi switch. But, this wall plate is not seating against the wall tightly because the plastic flange on this switch is thicker than regular light switches that have thin metal tabs where the mounting screws go. I think I can fix this by removing some material behind this wifi switch. The other one, I used the included wall cover plate, and it works just fine.09/22/2022Verified Purchase
Easy installation and integrates well with Amazon Alexa
Once you get used to configuring Smart-Switches, the process is pretty straight forward. One suggestion, read the instructions first. I replaced the existing switch with this then looked at the instruction sheet. First step, scan the bar code on the switch (the part now in the wall) to access the setup software. LOL, my bad. Fortunately you can also get it directly online. I had already received an email from the company with steps to follow if I encountered setup problems. I didn’t, but this kind of proactive tech support is unusual and I very much appreciated it. I installed different brands of smart switches during my smart home setup. In the process I learned that, while the process was about the same, each required its own app on your smartphone. My advice: decide on one brand of smart-switche and smart-plug so you can just add devices to the app as you expand. After you connect it to your network and name it, you then have to go to the software for your hub if you want to use voice control – which is the best part of having them Without Alexa or Google Home these are just switches and plugs that you can use from your smartphone, and what’s the fun in that. I decided on Alexa for my smart-home and have a Show, Show 5, Tap, and various Dots throughout the house. The next step for me was to run the Amazon Alexa app, go to Skills and Games, select Devices and add the new device. If it isn’t listed you need to use ‘discover’ and hope it connects. This is another reason to decide on just one or two brands and be certain it’s ‘Alexa’ or ‘Google Assist* approved. Fortunately all of mine were. Once you complete this step your product and apps should be integrated. You can control them with your voice by device or by group. I changed the activation word from ‘Alexa’ to ‘Computer’ because I think it sounds cooler and releases my inner Spock. I can now say ‘Computer, turn on the family room lights,’ to turn on the overhead light and table lamp. I can turn them on or off individually if I prefer. From this point forward you’ll be using Alexa or Google almost exclusively to control the devices so the brand is less relevant. However, you need to keep the apps on your smartphone for tweeks and firmware updates. Because I did this project with more than one brand I created a folder named ‘Smart Devices’ and put all the apps there. Depending on the scope of your project you’ll probably want to do this anyway. You’ll need apps for your speakers, TV, garage door, anything that you’ll be adding to your connected home. Of the switches I installed, my favorites were Etekcity and WeMo. Both work about the same but the Etekcity switch is more visually appealing as the function indicators, i.e. WiFi, only light up when you need them to during setup and configuration. WeMo has more devices available so you may choose that route if that’s important for your project. Bottom line, the Etekcity is a little less expensive, has proactive tech support and works and looks great. RECOMMENDED07/19/2022Verified Purchase
