Hot! These are good value plugs - they are normally about £9 on Amazon.

They contain a generic WiFi chipset that is produced by a company called Tuya - who sell this on to various other companies who brand it up themselves - en.tuya.com/.

Tuya have an App that allow companies to white label them (obviously "Eveready" have done that) - but the Tuya App or Smart Life App work with all the devices that contain the Tuya chipset - there are other Apps that are simply whitelablled versions of the same.

They work with IFTTT using the "Smart Life" service.

They are compatible with Alexa and Google, but they are limited to 2.4Ghz WiFi - this can cause some connection problems with certain routers.

For £5 - they are a bargain.

Thanks Op! Time for trip to B&M...

Is this compatible with Google Home or Hive? Also, does it use its own app? Heat anyway.

The only timer sockets I can see on the web site for £5.99 are these analogue ones. Could you post a link, please?

This is different to the above ones.. Not smart
If it works with Alexa, the next best UK plug would be TP Link around the £17:49 mark !

Heat, instruction manual shows how to connect it to Alexa, but also suggests it works with Google and IFTTT via eFamilyCloud app/skill.

Do you know if they work ok on 2.4/5 GHz WiFi with same SSID if you initially setup with only the 2.4Ghz band available ?

Had to disable the 5Ghz band when re-setting up a tp-link smart plug to new AP /router etc yesterday, but then works fine after.

I keep a separate WiFi network configured on my UniFi APs for 2.4Ghz - so I haven't tried that, but it they remember the BSSID once connected they should keep working. Depending on your router you might be able to configure a different SSID for the 5Ghz band, which would be the best solution.

Supreme Imports in Manchester pay Energizer,who own the Eveready brand, a licence fee to use the Eveready brand name. They also pay to use the JCB brand name on batteries and other electrical goods.

Thinking of maybe using this with a lamp to turn lights on n off whilst on holiday!
Can you set timer so it cones on occasionally?

Really useful post! I've used these with Alexa and Google with no problems, too.

It's a very good point to people about 2.4ghz WiFi...

The main issue this causes, is that for the initial setup connection it can fail to connect the plugs. Easiest workaround in my opinion is to temporarily deactivate 5ghz broadcast on the router until the plug has been set up (how to do this will vary slightly depending on router model). Then reactivate 5ghz broadcast afterwards, and all should work flawlessly.

Off to B and M to try and get a couple more plugs! Smile8
does this device give feedback, that its actually switched on or off?

It tells you it's on or off in the plug app. (also tells you in Alexa and Google Home apps).

Colour of light on the round switch on the plug itself (blue or red) also confirm if its on or off.

Hope that helps.

It did, this is the US everready. British ever ready was a separate company and was bought by energizer (who now also own US everready)

Using Tuya Smart. I find the app is pretty good and responsive. Controls a bedside lamp and downstairs lamp in the house. We have also used it in the past to boil the kettle before we get out of bed in the morning!

But for Amazon Echo or Google users, once Tuya is linked with their services you don't need to use the Tuya app, as you can use their own apps or voice control.
Got a couple of these this afternoon. Good post op
Still marked at £12 in our store but scanned at a fiver. There are loads and they are shelved well away from the rest of the range, too.
Bought one earlier and couldn’t get it connected.
I then changed my router settings to 2.4ghz only and it worked straight away after that.
