WorkChoice is a Wal Mart brand, and these WiFi wall taps have been selling very inexpensively for weeks now. The reason for the clearance pricing is because these units expose your SSID and password in plain text, potentially exposing your home wi-fi network to rather easy hacking. However, if your WiFi router has a guest network, just use the guest network when connecting the outlet to WiFi, and make sure your guest WiFi has a different password from your home network. That eliminates the security issue. I have two of these, and have ordered two more. They are easily controlled with the cell phone app from anywhere as long as you have either a mobile data or WiFi connection to the Internet. Of course, you can also set a timing schedule to automatically turn things on and off on a schedule.

A nice feature is that the phone app can show you how much power is being used by the device plugged into the outlet. It also calculates monthly cost. It uses 12 cents per kilowatt hour by default, but you can edit the numbers in Settings to whatever your energy company charges.

The product and the app are both as good or better than similar products I've seen. There is room for improvement, so, I give only 4 stars. But, I am delighted with mine. When I'm on the road, I can check my security cam to see if my brother has fallen asleep on the couch watching Netflix on Roku. If so, I can turn off the TV, Roku and living room lamp, all remotely with my WorkChoice/Eco WiFi outlet. Brilliant!

Once you figure out the somewhat older app interface, this item works well and does what it should.

These plugs are the worst. If you lose power they turn off. Also if you lose power they can lose their internet settings and switch to another time zone. Want your device to turn on at a certain time. Sorry, now it is on 5 hours later. There is no way to tell what time the device is working on. The program app S so basic you need the manual to figure it out.

RUN AWAY.

1 star is too generous.
