The Meross WiFi Dual Smart Outlet is a versatile device that allows you to connect two accessories using a single plug. You can control each accessory separately through HomeKit, making it a convenient and cost-effective alternative to purchasing two individual smart plugs. Meross is a well-established company in the HomeKit ecosystem, offering a range of HomeKit-compatible devices at competitive prices.
The design of the Meross WiFi Dual Smart Outlet is compact and space-saving, utilizing only one outlet. It measures 4.5 x 1.6 x 1.2 inches and weighs only five ounces, making it an unobtrusive addition to any home. The status light on the front indicates power and connection status, providing a clear visual indication of the device’s operation.
A single power button on the side of the plug allows for physical control of both outlets simultaneously. However, it is not possible to control each outlet individually from the plug itself, requiring the use of the accompanying app.
The setup process for the Meross WiFi Dual Smart Outlet can be completed using either the Home app or the native Meross app. Once connected to a 2.4 GHz network, the plug can be integrated into the Home app for seamless control and customization.
The initial installation may experience connection issues, but these can be resolved with the addition of a WiFi extender or router restart. In the Home app, the plug can be customized and grouped with other devices to create automation routines.
With a retail price similar to that of a single smart plug, the Meross WiFi Dual Smart Outlet offers great value for money, allowing control of two devices from a single outlet. Despite initial connection issues and limitations in physical control, the device responds efficiently to commands and is easy to use.
Overall, the Meross WiFi Dual Smart Outlet is a cost-effective solution for controlling multiple appliances, offering the same functionality as two separate smart plugs at a more affordable price.
