Innr Zigbee Smart Plug

In my continuing quest to eliminate most of the wi-fi smart home devices from my smart home setup, I had to consider what to do with my wi-fi smart plugs. Since I have to switch out some of my home's electrical outlets, I briefly thought about replacing some of those outlets with GE smart outlets. However, that would likely involve a lot of wire stripping to get access to the neutral wires, so I ultimately decided against doing that. Instead, I went with the Innr Zigbee Smart Plug. The most important feature of this plug is the fact that it's compact enough to keep from blocking off any adjacent sockets.

I ended up purchasing a total of 4 plugs and each one of them connected to my Samsung Smart Things hub quite easily. The Innr Zigbee plugs have been installed at each end of my house and have had no problem staying connected to the Smart Things hub. And, that's really all you can say about these things: They pair easily to the hub and they stay connected. And I prefer using Zigbee as opposed to Wi-Fi for smart plugs, as there are fewer connection issues involved.
