Frequently asked question
please use the plate inside our package. your original plate needed screws to fix the it, but there were no plate screw holes reserved on our product.
Never heard of those apps. Are they Android based? anyway, this switch does work seamlessly with Apple HomeKit. Hope that helps.
It comes with a single gang snap on cover plate. If you need a two, three, or four gang plate, you can use any 'Decora' style cover plate availble online or any local hardware store. I have purchased enough of these to upgrade my entire house and purchased my multi-gang cover plates from the local big box store.

Wiring takes some know-how, but set up with Apple HomeKit & everyday use thereafter have been perfect. Work well and look nice.09/23/2022Verified Purchase
You might need a bigger box in addition to the neutral line.
tl,dr – Meross hardware easy to install, meross software is easy to use, Apple Home setup is more of a meh. Make sure you think about what electrical wires and space is available before buying these and while the Apple Home compatibility is good if you’re already using it, it didn’t add much value for an iPhone user who is using Amazon echos as my smart home hub / voice commands
As a disclaimer, I’ve been adding smart switches to an old 1930’s craftsman home that has probably had a couple of electrical jobs done before I bought the house, and not all that surprised that the previous owners had done some interesting solutions, but that has for better or worse, made it possible for me to work though some of these modern era upgrades, and even since I started adding smart plugs and smart switches to the house, I’ve been loving it. I have had some previous generation meross products (some of their smart plugs) and while everything eventually gets added to my echo commands, it is nice to stick to some same platform parts to bridge the gap between hardware installation though its network setup before the final connection to Alexa.
So lets start with the hardware. It is straight forward and easy to connect. The instructions are fairly clear, the requirements for a neutral line is clear from the official posting, and while adding said neutral line probably isn’t the easiest job, you might want to factor in the size of the gang box you’re putting it in. I don’t think I’d had any issues with replacing a single switch, but two smart switches in a 2 gang box with both the wires to the lights, the fan, a extra set of wires for the neutral line, plus all the wire nuts that come with the switches means that there’s a lot to fit in a box and you are no longer able to use some of the tricks that you can with screw terminal switches. While I was able to get everything in there, it was a tight fit and I did have to open it up to fix a a wire nut that I think the wires got shifted around when getting it all into the box. Now again, the box I had problems with is a old work box, and it is the standard if not slightly smaller size, so if I was doing it again, I might have gotten a new box, but something future buyers might consider as a potential problem. Wire nuts provided are pretty universal. No problems connecting with 2 14 gauge wires, nor with 4 wires, but the size of everything does add up. Other little nit picky stuff is would sort of prefer more standard switch plates. While I like the idea of screw-less surfaces, I was putting these into 2 switch box and had to get a 2 switch switch plate for them. Not expensive, and not a surprise, but would have been nice to have plates I could use easily on other boxes or skip it outright and drop the cost another dollar or two for parts that I don’t need.
With all the wiring done, it’s installation time. As noted, I’ve used other meross smart devices in the past, and the installation guide in the OS is nice, although repetitive when you’re installing multiple devices. With the Apple Home feature, it was nice that my iPhone was detecting the newly install devices and instantly offered to help connect them, but honestly mixed bag. The code reader for the stickers on the devices never worked, but easy to figure out which switch was witch with the easily viewable home codes and MAC addresses. I did have a few attempts with Apple’s Home system spitting out various issues while setting up the device, but I suspect it’s more of an Apple thing than a Meross thing since once I did get them setup for my home network (and on my iPhone it HAD to be though Apple’s Home app setup) it was just a couple quick commands to the Meross app before they got paired with my Alexa commands.07/27/2022Verified Purchase
Very happy with these
Easy install and works well with Apple HomeKit07/18/2022Verified Purchase
Excellent for Home Automation
These switches are excellent value, relatively easy to install, and quick to incorporate into HomeKit.
The switch is bulky in the back — it can be a little hard to put it back in the electrical box. Also, there is no indication of how many amps it can support.06/10/2022Verified Purchase
Not much to say here, the switch looks good, installs easy and just works! I didn’t use the Meross app and just paired with HomeKit, responsive and no issues pairing the switches.04/28/2022Verified Purchase
Low cost for HomeKit devices
Once configured, all of my Meross devices for HomeKit have been rock solid. While getting them to configure into HomeKit can be challenging, once configured, I’ve had zero problems with any of them and I now have 11 Meross devices mixed into my Smarthome.
Definitely recommend but make sure the phone you’re using to configure them is on a 2.4Ghz WiFi network before you start. I’ve found once you start and fail to configure these, they become difficult. (They don’t work on 5Ghz WiFi.)
EDIT: as of this writing on 9/17/22, all of my Meross wall switches are down and have been intermittently down for days with not much response from Meross support. Think twice before buying. Shame, all my Meross stuff had been pretty good but this looks like a major issue across a lot of users and the vendor seems to be hunkered down avoiding us.04/15/2022Verified Purchase
