It seems that Amazon has the Sylvania Smart Home 72922 Sylvania LIGHTIFY Smart Plug for $23.14. That’s a pretty good price, but is it a good smart plug?
I guess the question is, how weak is the ZigBee radio on these things?
As a reminder, I am coming over from Iris, and have had mostly Iris 1st generation contact sensors, which are ZigBee, the radio in the ADT ST hub seems stronger than the Iris one, and I only had issues with disconnects on the 2 furthest sensors, that went away after I added the Iris ZigBee smart plug to an outlet in the kitchen on the other side of the wall from the 2 sensors in question. (Garage doors, and master bath window). After doing that, I had zero drop outs.
I am planning long term to add 2 smart plugs to each bedroom (one per nightstand lamp) and 2 in the living room which gives me a total of 7. In the bedrooms, I am pretty sure if I can find them, I am going to want 2 outlet smart plugs. Probably going to have to look for one that is individually controllable. Most likely just do an outlet instead of a smart plug…
