submitted by Crystal - 2 years ago

Once successfully connected you will have control over your devices from an unlimited range. Please feel free to reach out to us by calling 1-844-302-2943 to learn more. -Cync Support

The plug was easy to setup and schedule my lamp for on and off times. It worked great for 5 months. Then it stopped turning the lamp on. I tried several times to update, then I tried deleting everything and start over. I could setup and enter the schedule but the lamp never came on.

I usually use Tp-Link Kasa home devices, but I saw this plug at the store and decided to give it a shot. It works just as well as any other smart plug. The only thing I wish it had was A energy efficient/Monitoring plug. But I give it five stars because it does exactly what it’s supposed to do, and what it says it will do. Overall, it’s a great plug.

says you don't need a hub and is compatible with Alexa. You DO need a hub for it to be compatible with Alexa. Very misleading and frustrating
1 reply from Cync Support team - 11 months ago
Jod, we sincerely apologize for your experience. The Cync Smart Plug does not require a hub when used with the Cync App, and you can link a voice assistant app to it. A hub is only required when setting up a device directly in the Alexa App or Google Home App. Please feel free to contact us at 1-844-302-2943 for assistance with your devices. -Cync Support

This product is unreliable. It doesn't consistently turn on at the scheduled time, it doesn't consistently turn off at the scheduled time, and it is randomly unreachable through the app. I have smart bulbs, security cams and other home automations from various companies and all are infinitely more reliable than this plug.

DO NOT BUY

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
glutton for punishment - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Thought I would cut the transit time and buy this instead of the typical smart plug. I’m tech savvy and figured I could work around other reviewers issues. Boy, was I wrong! App is junk and required for any other interface. (Google home, Alexa, etc. ) Took forever to get it to connect to WiFi, as others indicate. Finally got it setup, lost power due to storm, and now it won’t reconnect. GE needs to get the Cync app figured out or allow the device to connect directly to the preferred app. Save you time, money, and sanity and buy something else.

Product has a good weight. But it’s a garbage product. Followed the weak instructions on google home and the cync app only gets so far and then has a connection error. The google app will say its connected but never pops up in order to add the plug on. Ugh. I’d give it zero stars if I could.

We deeply apologize that you were unsuccessful in getting the plug to connect. We recommend factory resetting it by holding down the button on the right side for 10 seconds or until the LED light turns red.

RebbyB - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I don't use the app much - only when we go on vacation - but it is SO not intuitive. It takes me forever to find where in the app to change the on/off times for the two plugs we have. I try clicking on "scenes" and then get lost in the app, then try clicking on rooms, and nowhere is there a place to change the on/off times. It should and could be so, so much simpler.

Domino - 2 years ago
Despite the GE website claims and written product instructions inside the box, this plug does not connect directly to Google home app. I tried upwards of 30 times on different days and different WiFi networks, with no success. Customer support offered no remedy. You'll have to download and use the Cync app to get the plug connected to your WiFi. This requires setup of a GE account, which took took 15+ hours for me to even achieve because the verification email needed to first log in is consistently delayed by several hours. After that saga, the plug was found by the Cync app relatively easily and you can then link your Cync account in the Google home app. Schedules for on/off can be configured in the Google app rather than having to do in Cync, fortunately. However, the indirect linking via Cync means that connection runs through the Cync servers which are unreliable (remember the verification email delay? that wasn't a one-off).

Hello Domino, we deeply apologize for the amount of effort it took to get your devices set up and linked to your Google Home. This is certainly not the intended outcome that we expect from commissioning our devices.

I purchased this on sale & specifically for the Christmas tree lights. It was simple to connect with the Google app but for some reason it disconnects itself. I’m able to use voice commands on my Google Home but via the Google app it usually shows “offline”. It’s good enough for the price and use for short term use but if you’re looking for something to use long term I’d try another brand.

Defeats the purpose of a smart plug

1 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
MsPacNW - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
Lack of functionality defeats the purpose of a smart plug. Consistently disconnects itself from the WiFi network so it’s rarely available to control remotely. The accompanying app only has the ability to set a schedule to turn the plug off, not on - again, completely defeats the purpose of a programmable smart plug.
1 reply from Cync Support team - 2 years ago
Hello MsPacNW, we have made changes to our scenes and schedules. The start and end times are now merged into only one schedule. You can find more info on our support article cyncsupport.gelighting.com/s/article/scenes-and-schedules. Feel free to contact us at 1-844-302-2943. -Cync Support

I had my clients purchase these to replace standalone timers that drift way too much. These connect to the router and keep time with the computers perfectly. One nice feature I like about these is if power goes out nothing has to be done to reset them. The come back on with power and work as scheduled.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am surprised how often I’ve actually used this once I got used to having it! I just use it to turn on a light, really, but it’s still convenient.I do not have a real frame of reference for the quality- I don’t know what the limits are or how long it will last, but I like it.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was my first time using a smart plug so I had a little difficulty initially getting the schedule to work out but I’m sure it was user error. I’m using this with my front window lamp. Works so easy with Google home that I am planning on getting a few more.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love that this converts the plug to a smart plug. It’s easy to setup. Just download the app, pair and plug. You are ready to go and can control the device from your phone. It’s a great alternative when the smart device is not an option.
