The smart plug standby wattage is around 1W.
You do need a Wi-Fi connection to set up your smart plug with the C by GE app. When you are in the same location as your plug, the C by GE app will connect to your plug through Bluetooth. When you are away from home, your app requires an internet connection through Wi-Fi or Cellular Data to communicate with the plug.
All C by GE smart bulbs (A19 and BR30 sizes), Light Strips and Wired Switches (on/off, dimmers and dimmers with motion sensors). Because the Plug is a hubless product (enables voice and out-of-home control), you cannot connect it to a C-Reach or Sol.
The smart plug also enables voice and out-of-home control for our C by GE lights by simply adding your smart plug in the same app Location as your C by GE lights. For voice control, you will need to link your C by GE account with Alexa and/or Google.
No, our smart plug only works with C by GE devices.
Yes, because our smart plug is Wi-Fi enabled, you can control it out-of-home without the need of hub or additional device. Just use the C by GE app.
Our plug is compatible with Alexa and Google. It is not compatible with HomeKit. Because our smart plug is Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled, you can control it with Alexa and Google without the need of a hub or additional device.
For Alexa control, you will need to link your C by GE account with Alexa.
For Google control, if you are using the C by GE app, you will need to link your C by GE account to the Google Home app. If you are only using the Google Home app, you can connect the Plug directly to the Google Home app.
The Google Home app will identify what kind of device your plug is controlling based on the plug’s name in the app. For example, if you’ve named your plug “Lamp,” because your plug is controlling a lamp, the Google Home app will identify it as a light. If you do not have a lighting-oriented name for the plug, then it will appear as a plug in the Google Home app. You can also change the name of the device after initial setup in the Google Home app, which could change whether Google Home shows it as a plug or a light.
No, you can only turn devices, including lights, on and off with the smart plug.
