That’s a shame 😳😳
Will it work with Google home? Will it work with the hue hub? Do you need a hub at all?

what the accompanying text says

"The MiHome Adaptor is a control only product. It allows you to use all the control features in the MiHome App including simple on/off, timers and geofencing. The adaptors are also controllable via the MiHome remote control (PL14994). This product only receives communications from the MiHome Gateway (PL14992) and does not send a response, therefore it is not recommended for use in safety critical applications."

You sure an Energinie plug can be controlled by a xiaomi hub or are you assuming the name miHome makes them compatible? . just checking, If you have them working that's fine but I'd be pretty annoyed if I took your advice and ordered the hub from China to find it wasn't compatible.

I had the same thought with my Aqara gateway but it’s not listed as being compatible.

So you are 100% positive that these plugs work with a xiaomi gateway, even though these plugs transmit and receive
• Radio Frequency: 433.92Mhz (ISIM band)
when the xiaomi transmits and receives 2.4Ghz Zigbee

As I said it says it needs a mi gateway so one would presume so no?

it says Mi|Home Gateway! not Original Xiaomi Mijia Multifunction Gateway.
I fell foul when I ordered 10 Hue smart spotlights after Hive announced hue bulbs were now compatible. Then found out I needed the hue hub to drive them

Mine isn't a mijia made sure of that when choosing it.
Bear in mind these are RF and do not report their state, signalling is fire and forget so it may turn on when you tell it, or may not..
Also if someone manually switches it on using the button on the unit, you have no way to tell from a "smart home" point of view, so not very smart.
Better off with Sonoff or similar if you are looking for cheap smart plugs.
+1 for Sonoff plugs
I don't think.you need the hub if you have echo +
Ok, a few things, since I have a few of these, and everyone else is just speculating...
1) You need the Energenie Mi:Home hub - nothing whatsoever to do with Xiaomi, just an unfortunately similar name.
2) The system using the hub has advantages and disadvantages. The thing I really like is that the hub is the only part of the setup sitting on your network (and it's hard wired, so no WiFi issues, and no messing about with network bandwidths like you have with the Sonoffs). It then operates your various Mi:Home devices with RF. It's not 100% reliable, but it's close... close enough that I've gone from 1 wall switch to half a dozen, with another half dozen of these plug adaptors.
3) While the plug adaptors are good, I agree that there are other equally good solutions. The real jewel in the Mi:Home setup is the wall switches. I've never fancied having the 'smart' in the bulbs - it just seems illogical for so many reasons. Smart switches makes so much more sense to me, and these do it at a very reasonable price. Also importantly they're made for the UK market, so unlike many they don't need a neutral.
4) As someone pointed out, these don't report state (same with the wall switches). Agree that's a definite disadvantage, though they do a more expensive version that reports state and power use, I haven't got one of those so can't speak to its effectiveness.
5) Mi:Home plays very nicely with Alexa... I'm sure Google Home would be fine too.

I'll keep an eye on this thread, if anyone has any questions fire away.

No, you definitely still need the hub, even with Echo+
