To begin this review, the Nyrius Smart Outlet is a great device to have, but it is not without its quirks. However, if you look past the quirks you will be extremely happy with your purchase. Having the ability to remotely turn on/off devices and lights is extremely useful, but definitely not as useful as the schedules.
Scheduling lights or devices is extremely helpful, I use it when I leave for vacation. I was looking for a device like this for a while that allowed me to schedule dates and times to turn on lights as well as having a proximity sensor on them.
The software can use a little work, as well as bringing both the light and outlet apps together in one HOME application. That would be kind of helpful.
Build quality is really good. The outlet is heavy, but not too heavy, and definitely doesn’t feel cheap and hollow. It is a grounded plug which helps for larger devices as well.
I did have a connection issue with my phone, but I don’t know if it is due to software or hardware. It didn’t really bother me that much since I only encountered it once. But I thought I should mention it.
One thing I would like to request, is a Analytical feature on power draw. That could be helpful.
