(It does ONE thing well--you can turn it on and off from your phone from anywhere.)
I have TWO of these, both less than a month old and with the latest firmware (0.8.83). The leading zero means BETA and it shows.
For example, I have a rule for them both to turn on at 8:00 and turn off 10 minutes later.
One of them turned on at 8:05 while the other turned on at 8:07. Sometimes the delay can be as long as 15 minutes.
Both turned off 10-15 minutes later, but then the other turned back on again at 8:22 for no reason, turning off again 10 minutes later.
My scheduled events are all during the day, but I once woke up in the morning and found that one of them had turned on at 2:00am and had been on all night. There is no pattern. Random on. Random off. Sometimes within a few minutes.
All of these problems are due to the iHome cloud service which manages the rules. It is possible that it works with Alexa or some other scheduling service.
I've used it for a month and tried everything to make it work. Resetting. Updating. Having only ONE rule.
I was told that there was nothing they could do until the next firmware update sometime next year (2017).
Ok so I was throwing away the packing materials and noticed a separate insert that ihome threw in the box. It was recommended that you factory reset the device before using it by holding the power button down for 10 seconds. It appears they are testing these at the factory and they may still be paired to another device. That is probably why the setup was a little rocky.
Edit again: knocking off a couple of stars. The app randomly logs you out and you need to sign back in everytime with both email and password. Something like Touch ID would be great but as it stands it's really not the most convenient thing to control the lights.
They fixed the app for the most part. I don't get asked to log in anymore but from time to time the app forgets everything and I need to force close it for it to load my devices again. I have it set up for me and my girlfriend with I problems aside from the force close thing.
Last last edit:
Updated to 5 stars. Works fine with both mine and my girlfriends phone as well as control from a tablet. Seems that the recent app and firmware updates did the trick.
The iHome android app and plug firmware were updated in January 2016. The software is now compatible with phones running Android 5.1 and 6.0.
The iHome android app lacks features that the iOS app has and is clunky; fortunately, the iHome Smart Plug can be accessed via the Wink App, which adds a great deal of versatility to this "smart" plug. For example, through Wink, I can control the outlet based on output from various sensors and can set a schedule. Because the outlet can be accessed via the Wink API, it is even possible to control it using the Amazon Echo. I have found the plugs to be extremely reliable, once I figured out how to keep them from going offline. I use them to power three heated cat beds for my cats. Using robots within the Wink app, I can turn the heaters on when the temperature in the house drops lower than 70F, and turn them off when the temperature is above 70F.
The only caveat to these plugs is that strong WiFi signals cause the plug to drop offline. There are three solutions to this:
a) Add a secondary (older) WiFi router that does 802.11b/g - the transmission power is low enough that the plugs don't drop offline.
b) I'm using an Odroid XU4 (something like a Raspberry Pi) to provide a WiFi hotspot for these plugs (and my Wink Hub) - once again, the low transmission power works well
c) For many routers, you can reduce the transmission power through their configuration webpage. Reduce this from 100% to 60-80%; the odds are high that your iHome plugs will not drop offline.
Top reviews from other countries
I don't find it is very compatible with other smart devices and because of this I can only give it three stars. There can be work-arounds via IFTTT but as of now I have not found a channel there.
The big question. Will this save you $50 in electricity, Probably not. Will it help you sleep a little better at night knowing that you are trying to do your part for the environment and not waste. Maybe. All in all I like the idea. I would like to see more integration with Ecobee (There is Homekit, Nest and Wink integration. Unfortunately that is not the direction I went.)
