Frequently asked question

Can it be controlled & scheduled with a windows app? Like turn on and dim to 60% every day at 7PM ?

Like any other Alexa controlled plug or switch, you can program it to turn on and off at specified times. This plug does not allow dimming, only switching it on/off. I use my Android Alexa app from my phone to program my devices. The Alexa Windows app might work for you, but I can't get it to work with my devices.

    Super simple to set up! Holiday lighting will be a breeze!

    Ok, I am SOOOO FREAKING EXCITED about this plug…seriously! If I had read the complete description, I probably would’ve known this when I placed the order, but it has TWO OUTLETS that can be controlled INDEPENDENTLY!!! How cool is that?!? Holiday lighting and deco is going to be easy-peasy lemon-squeezy this year! Guess that means we can do MORE!!
    And integration with Alexa app could not be any easier unless an Amazon employee popped out of the box and plugged it in for you. (Which would be a little weird, so don’t do that….but thanks for making it simple!)

    Works as promised, but only within the Alexa ecosystem of smart devices.

    Disclaimer: I received this product for no charge through the Vine program but pay income tax on the retail value of the item.
    This weatherproof outdoor plug is ideal for remotely controlling outdoor lighting, fans, or any other appliance that you might use outdoors. It would be especially useful for holiday lighting where you can use the Alexa app to remotely program start and stop times without having to go outside in the cold, rain, or snow.
    Physically, the device is constructed well. The receptacles have separate silicone rubber covers to protect against water entry. The covers seal shut, but they feel a little loose in the closed position. The manual states the device has an IP65 rating which means it is protected from dust and water jets from any direction. To achieve that water resistance, the manual says the plug must be 4.7 feet above the ground. That seems a bit impractical as most outdoor receptacles are near the ground.
    The device can be controlled manually with switches located on the plug, but to use it as a smart device it must be used within the Alexa ecosystem. It will not work with Google Home, Apple HomeKit, or any other smart device app other than Alexa. If that is acceptable to you, this plug will work well.
    Setting up the device is easy. The only way to set up the device is to go to the Alexa App on your smartphone or tablet, select Devices, and add a new Amazon Basics device. Among the choices you are presented with is an Outdoor plug. Once you have chosen that device the app asks you to scan the QR code printed on the plug or in the user manual, but not the QR code on the box. Scanning the code then gets the device registered on your Wi-Fi Network and it is ready to go.
    Although setting up the device was easy, I couldn’t immediately control the devices with the Alexa app the first time I set it up. I had to unplug and plug the device in a couple of times before I had voice and app control over the two receptacles. That could be frustrating to someone who hasn’t previously used smart devices and discovered their occasionally finicky behavior.
    The two receptacles can be controlled independently. By default, they will appear as ‘plug 1’ and ‘plug 2’ on your list of devices on the Alexa app. However, if you have other Amazon smart plugs already on your network, they will rename themselves to ‘plug 3’ and ‘plug 4’ or whatever number is next in line. Of course, you are free to rename the receptacles as you please.
    In summary, this outdoor smart plug works exactly as promised as long as you remain within the Alexa ecosytem of smart devices.

    Works well

    Bought 2 for my backyard and front lights to control it with Alexa voice commands. Works perfectly, never a problem so far. As for the weatherproofing of the units I am not so sure because the plastic flaps are dangling down and do not keep in place, which is not a problem as long as the plug openings face downwards. can recommend.

    Easy setup, works great, extremely happy!

    Previously purchased a different outdoor plug from 3rd party thru Amazon. That app never linked to Alexa & plug didn’t work as described so returned it. This outdoor plug has 2 outlets. Both can be controlled separately thru Alexa. Setup was less than 5minutes. So glad I bought this one! No more going outside to unplug holiday decorations! Woohoo!

    Good outside plug

    Didn’t think I’d want a plug that Alexa could control, but it is amazing! This plug is so simple to use and has 2 different plugs you can control individually.

    Fantastic Quality and Easy Setup

    I had zero problems adding this device to Alexa. Just plugged it in and a few seconds Alexa announced that it had been added. Each plug can be turned on and off from the app or via voice command or directly with the push buttons on the plug itself. When turning off or on remotely, there is a click sound at the plug itself and a small green light that indicates when the plug is on.
    Heavy duty cord is short, around 6 inches, and grounded plugs have sealing rubber covers. There is a hanging tab so that the unit could be hung very near the outlet where it’s installed. My plan is to use this with Outdoor Christmas lights that are within WiFi range. I look forward to eliminating those winter ventures out into the cold to turn on and off the lights. Of course, it’s entirely possible that I find a use for this before the holiday season and its Christmas designation is never realized. (Or even more likely, that at post Thanksgiving decoration time, I won’t be able to remember where I put this… I know. I’ll store it now in the decoration box.)
