TheSmartestHouse lists the Aeotch Smart Switch Gen 6 as not being safe for fans or motors.
“Works with resistive loads only with 15 Watts on load minimum (don’t use with inductive loads like fans and motors!)”
I am using it on an extra refrigerator I have to turn it on once in a while to keep it fresh and functioning. Seems to have been working fine for months. Just curious what this warning is about. The plug is rated for 15amps. It’s plugged into a 15amp socket so if it tried to pull more it would trigger the breaker. Is there something more to consider about the load. I found this http://www.schneider-electric.us/en/faqs/FA111665/ but I can’t find anything from Aeotech themselves saying this is an issue. So not sure why this site says this and if it is any issue.
