I am looking for a dual outlet smart plug to control a sidewalk heater (~1amp) and Christmas lights. Ideally, the plugs would be individually controllable. Because they are running non-mission critical items, I am OK with wifi and 3rd integration if there aren’t good z-wave or ZigBee alternatives. I will not get anything Tuya or Smart Life or Globe life because their integrations have been cluster f*&^s.
Who is running exterior lights? What do you recommend?
meross makes a dual plug that works with just about everything. Alexa, GH, SmartThings, HomeKit, etc. (affiliate link)
meross Smart Outdoor Plug, Waterproof WiFi Outdoor Outlet, Compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and SmartThings, Remote Control, Timer, FCC and ETL Certified - - Amazon.com
get the newer model, it handles plugs better
meross Outdoor Smart Plug Compatible with Apple HomeKit, Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant and SmartThings, Waterproof WiFi Outdoor Outlet, Remote & Voice Control, Timer, FCC and ETL Certified: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific
the only thing I don’t like about the new model is I hit the on/off button when I grab it
nice! need to update my saved items list. looks smaller, too.
if homekit is not needed, check out Kasa… I like these except they don’t support Homekit as mentioned but slightly larger than the meross plugs
Kasa smart outdoor plug by TP link, weather resistant, dual outlets, control from anywhere, works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and no hub required (KP400).
Thanks everyone. I ordered this new Meross plug:
meross Outdoor Smart Plug, Outdoor Wifi Outlet with 2 Grounded Outlets, Remote Control, Timer, Waterproof, Works with Amazon Alexa, SmartThings and Google Assistant, FCC Certified - - Amazon.com
Price. There was a $2 coupon. $18
The Kasa plug covers aren’t attached. Seems like a big oversite.
Homekit was not needed
I wish there was slightly more space between the plug covers and the outlets. Makes a tight squeeze when you have two plugs but not intolerable.
yes sorry, forgot to include the non-homekit version for the meross outdoor plug which is cheaper
