Geeni Smart Surge

Geeni recently introduced the Smart Surge ( which is a WiFi surge protector where each of the 4 outlets can be controlled independently. At $39.99 is would make a cost effective option to control several lamps or other items all located nearby. It also has 4 USB charging ports. It’s controllable by Google Home and Alexa but has anyone successfully integrated it into Smartthings?

If the device itself is connected to the internet (as a wifi device is), then generally ST and the device maker would have to make an official integration, or if the device maker has an open API then a community developer could potentially create one too.

So does this device have an open API?

I bought 6 Merkury innovations color bulbs from They use geeni Android app. It appears from searching that geeni and “smart life” apps are related. When I installed smart life after geeni it asked me if it was a genie or smart life device.

The point is smart life is in IFFT. I’ve emailed them about an API.

Have you been able to add the power strip in the Smart Life app?

I could do some basic integrations if I can at least get the Geeni/Merkury device to show up in IFTTT.

I haven’t gotten back to it yet, but sort of.

In doing some research it looks like these are all resellers of tuya stuff. I have the bulbs in the app, and supposedly it will work with ifft, but I’ll let you know when I get some time.

Ok, so… No luck yet. While smart life integrates with ifft, it doesn’t work with my bulbs. That power strip is intriguing, but I can’t say if this will work. Good luck, sorry.

Yo, fellow mehican!

Any word on Geeni integration (I’ve got several of the bulbs and a power strip)? I’m especially keen for location-triggered automations (e.g., as I approach home, turn the entry lights on), but Google Assistant only offers triggers (and no actions), and I don’t find any other access point to the Geeni devices.

While I know that this is mostly on Geeni, if Assistant had actions in IFTTT, it seems like that would cover it as well.
