Works well but shows your WiFi password 2/5
By Stumbling Monk
Works well. Easy to add stuff. Easy to use with Alexa. But when I add a new device it shows the WiFi password for my network (since I’ve typed it in before to add other devices). That’s pretty not secure and I’m thinking it shouldn’t trust it.
Schedule stopped working 1/5
Everything was fine until this morning, now the schedules no long work. Hopefully SmartLife is correcting this now. The weird thing is the app works manually and Alexa commands work. Maybe the developer should stop “fixing” what isn’t broken.
Timers don't work anymore -3/15/2019 1/5
Even after 3 updates - They stop counting when you minimize the app. Going back to wemo I guess.
Last update broke timer again!
Functional App 4/5
The app does a good job connecting to my devices and functions quickly. It’s a no frills app with very few add ons. Overall functional and bare bones but does the trick. You don’t really need much more.
I have a smart power strip and two smart plugs. this app makes it easy to create schedules, it’s nice to schedule my coffee maker to start brewing ten minutes before my first alarm. very cool 😎
Works with 2.4Ghz Networks Only! 4/5
This app works with 2,4Ghz Networks only! I wish it could work with dual-band Networks too for faster connection with the applicable smart Wi-Fi plugs or devices. However, it is compatible with my Amazon Echo Spot (“Alexa”) to control my smart devices from anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection. I am satisfied enough with it so far.
Siri shortcuts don’t always work 3/5
Speaking to Siri and having it run the shortcut created for a device within in the app doesn’t always trigger actions with the app. It often causes Siri to tell me I have no devices connected using HomeKit.
Easy Peasy 5/5

This was the easiest setup I have ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My Smart Home 5/5
By Jojo in Torrance
From the day I received my Smart Life outlet
modules back in December I’ve used them daily to control my living room lamps.
Easy to set up and even easier to use!
Would love to have few more as well as a couple of wall switches...
Thanks Smart Life!
Good product, good be better 3/5
With the newer App updates, I can no longer connect to and configure my iKustar mini-plug Model: WP5 Input. Would give App 5 stars if this problem could be fixed.
Frequently stop working 1/5
About once a month units stop operating according the the schedule. Have to delete all the plugs and start over. A total pain.
Last update blew the schedules 3/5
I love the app, and the switches. Never had any problem until the last update.
Now, the scheduled ON or OFF times don’t work. Everything is manual.
I have deleted, and reinstalled the schedule..... nope.
Nice Product 5/5
No complaints for price paid. Works and looks great.
Works well for Tuya IoT’s but missing Stringify support 4/5
I like that this app allows me to manage all of my Tuya built switches and plugs all in one app. However, the next level of home automation is Stringify and currently, Smart Life does not work with Stringify. Only IFTTT which isn’t nearly as good. :(
I hope Stringify functionality is added soon.
Complex initial setup but amazing since 5/5
And great value for price. I bought 2 double plugs that I have in two different rooms. Initial setup on the first plug confused me but the second was a breeze. I wish I had bought the light bulbs from them instead of Phillips Hue. The app allows for family setups (although I live alone so I don’t use that part) but it gives me info about electricity usage and even weather! Not sure why the latter. I generally control them via voice using Alexa but if I happen to have my phone in my hand I may check status or add a timer or something directly through the app. And the pricing is the icing!
Needs more control options 2/5
I’m glad that it works with ifttt, but you need to add toggle and duration options. In other words, if I want my smart life socket to turn on when my Ring senses motion, I should be able to have the socket light turn on for 60 seconds then turn off. Other brand mini sockets allow this, why not Smart Life?
Great product 5/5
By Sandy J. G..
The product is easy to install and use. It’s great to turn on the lights before I get home from work.
Very easy 5/5
This was very easy to use and set up. I love being able to activate from my smart phone!
By Hansbxbdhjsbsbd db
App is crap, doesn’t connect to product
I wish that in your two or three gang switches you would Show them in different switches not all one. That way also if you want to separate the three-way switch one for your living room and one for your outside patio you can do that. Also you cannot tell by looking in the first page of your app if any lights are on or off on the 3way switch or 2 way Switch it’s annoying that you have to click into the icon to see what’s on and off
Works well and easy to program.
A-ONE product. BEST OF ALL AVAILABLE DEVICES!!!!
Super WiFi plug! 5/5
By May Laptop
These WiFi plugs have dramatically changed my way of life, time and is a an energy saver!
Doesn’t work 1/5
Carefully followed instructions. It will not recognize the smart plugs. Returning the junk.
Terrific app 5/5
By Daniel Carpenter (DDC)
One of my favorite apps in my home automation, I usually look forward to being able to delete the app and have everything unified into one but smart life stays!!
Nice and simple! Just now it should be. 5/5
Great app. Easy interface.
Two people with different deviice dont work 2/5
My dad doing it and then all of mine disappear
Please fix and allow more than one user use and then i will upgrade this review!!!
Please adjust widget! 2/5
I really like this app, and really like that they now have the option to access control from the widget screen. Unfortunately, the widget lets me access only 4 lights, which are all on timers, so it’s irrelevant. Would love to be able to choose which smart devices we can access from that pane. I wasn’t able to switch the order of my devices within the app, which could have solved the problem. Other than that, it’s a great app!
Only Chinese Support? 3/5
The App is good, and I have a few smart plugs that seem to work pretty well. However, I want to connect the Smart Life App with my “Schlage Connect” deadbolt and can’t find information anywhere. When I attempted to access support, it is all in Chinese!
I Love The Plug 5/5
It works great in my home
OK but no data export or notifications 3/5
I just wish I could...
- get notifications when a scheduled event occurs (switch on/off) since sometimes I don't want that scheduled event and i could correct manually if notified an event occurred
- set a "always countdown timer" so every time manually switched on (by my kids, for example) it will switch off after an hour rather than be forgotten and left on all day
- export the energy use data that is displayed in the app. I can look at it within the app, but that's it.

Seeking help here since app support is in Chinese 1/5
I purchased 4 sockets that use this app. I’m currently using 2 of the 4 sockets in my home. One of those sockets was used on my nightstand lamp. I set up a scheduled routine to turn it on at a certain time in the evening and off at a later time (if I hadn’t turned it off when going to bed). It worked well until I turned off the routine when I went on vacation. When I came back and turned the schedule back on thru the app, it no longer works. I even tried deleting the old timers and setting new ones. And it still doesn’t work. Any help is greatly appreciated... and I will rewrite my review to a much better star rating once I get support. (I only gave it one star to get your attention).
Login required now 1/5
This app used to be great. It gave me silly control capabilities in my phone for a diffuser. Cool feature, more or less unnecessary though.
Then there was an update and it now requires your information to even use the app at all, and the terms are the usual vague we only share your information... Etc.
You don't need my phone number or email to turn my phone into a remote control for silly smart devices.
I'd use the app without the login features, but not with it. If people want to save their login information to a profile to use across devices or something, cool, let them, but don't require it.
WHAT DID YOU DO? 1/5
By Part time Hater
Updates app to 3.5.8 and all my switches were gone and I can’t get them setup again!!!
Smart switch 5/5
I am happy I can control my all light only when adding led strip control with music playing I think it’s good idea
I love the wife system 👍
Smart socket sp10 1/5
Don’t work Bluetooth don’t work wifi
Like the control 4/5
This is a good application. It allows me to manage several plugs and several lights around the house for security. It is amazing to me that I can turn a light on and off in my house even if I’m in another state. I look forward to future enhancements to this product.
Awesome App!!! 5/5
Awesome easy to use App with a bunch of different scenarios you can use. I set one where my bedroom lamp will turn on and off (alert) 10 times and all other living room lights turn on if my front door is opened after a certain time at night (intruder)! I only wish it also had location services built in. Location services can be used in IFTT but functionality is limited and not all smart devices I have work smoothly with it. Will only buy smart devices in the future that are compatible with this app! Love it!
By Asleep in WI
So happy with these. I bought another 4 pack. Have them all over the house.
I love the simplicity of the app.
Would like to see the ability to set brightness in the schedule.
Would like to see a sunrise function in the schedule, where I can set the light to get brighter over a short time period, simulating the sunrise.
They are perfect!!!!
Using it every day 4/5
It’s okay 3/5
The app is great when it works. Sometimes I’ll get on and it will say my products are offline, which is frustrating when I’m trying to work on my aquarium (which is plugged into a smart power strip). Especially after the power fails. Other than this flaw the app works as expected.
Continues to work as advertised. 4/5
Have been using for close to a year. Works well and easily programmed. App could be improved to better explain modes and display all setup modes and schedule for a single device.
Smart life Plugs 5/5
Equipment works as specified.
I quality product 5/5
This device has some cool features, voice control, timer, tap to activate, personally I’m very pleased with this product.
