Is anyone else having issues getting these plugs working with Christmas lights?
I’ve tried the SmartThings Plug, and that just doesn’t seem to like them at all. As for the Wemo Socket, im also 100% sure that last year I had this working with them, but I can’t get them working this year.
The lights are all powered by a 12V adapter, so I’m thinking that this is part of the problem, but i’m not 100% sure.
I’m using Iris wall warts, Aeon ZW appliance modules, GE outdoor ZW modules and GE ZW dimmable wall warts, they all work fine. The only issue is 1 of my LED sets ( Taotonic controller ) does not come back on when power is restored. So after ST turns the GE outdoor controlling it on, I have to use Harmony ( or it’s own remote ) to turn the actual lights back on .
I have the plug that came with the ST kit as well as two iris outlet smart plugs. EAch are connected to a christmas tree and each work perfectly. I have them set to come on at 6PM and off at 10PM. But I also have it so you can tell Google Home to turn on/off any one of them individually or as a group.
What is the exact problem you are experiencing?? I am happy to assist and so you know currently have 28 of the Iris and SmartThings SmartPlugs deployed for Christmas lights with no compatibility issues. I have plugs connected to LEDs using just a couple watts. These are relay devices and should be compatible with any 120v Christmas light set.
