Promising review: "This is the second time I purchased these Wi-Fi outlets. They are so easy to set up and integrate with Alexia. I’m planning on using them to turn my Christmas lights on and off. Additionally we are going on vacation for two weeks and I am programming them to turn my lights on and off so it looks like we’re at home. Love them and will probably purchase more."

Make sure the internet connection will reach your garage. ... From easy to expert level, this is easy, beginner level install."

Promising review: "I’ve always been a big water drinker, but sometimes I do slack. My cousin had one and I thought it was super cool. We now compete with each other. I love it! I get to keep track now of how much I drink, and If I slack it lights up to remind me to drink more."
Promising review: "This is an excellent smoker and produces mouth watering results. The item was packaged very well and easy to assemble. The wi-fire feature allows you to monitor you temp and lets you know when it has completed warm up or cool down. The recipes are really helpful, if you are considering this product I would encourage you to buy it."
Promising review: "I purchased two of these to achieve true stereo. The updated spherical design is a great update to the column design. Although the speakers are physically small they are relatively heavy. The sound quality is superb and the volume is more than adequate. Set up was easy using the app. These are great addition to my family room."

Promising review: "Great for home automation. I have 6 of these lights in our home. I use Google assistant to control them with voice commands. I have then scheduled to turn off automatically I have a few of them scheduled to come on at sunset so we never come home from work to a dark house."

Promising review: "Heaven sent! Bought a few for each of our camera bags. Best decision I made because of the beta alarm in the app if you get too far from the tile. Saved our gear!"

Promising review: "This was the best Wi-Fi connected smart timer. I like the ability to control it from anywhere in the world over internet.
