Energenie MiHome Smart Plugs | Review & Giveaway


Smart home devices are becoming more popular with the tech-savvy and those wanting to make their life easier and simpler. I've always been into gadgets, so was delighted to be trying out the Starter Kit from Energenie (£79.99)*. The pack contains three smart plugs, the MiHome Gateway and a remote control. MiHome is Amazon Alexa certified and will connect with other platforms including IFTTT, Nest and more so you can set this up with your other smart home devices. A free, easy to use app for either iOS or Android will help you get up and running and allow you to control your devices from your phone.


The system can be set up quickly with minimum effort. I found it so easy to do it via the app as it guides you through each step. There is no messing around connecting it as you can simply scan the QR code on the back of gateway unit and it recognises what you are setting up. Setting up the plugs was also nice and easy and I was putting them around the house in no time, being able to control them from the app whether this is switching them on and off or setting up a timer. A geofencing feature can be applied to your devices which is based on your phone's location, so it could automatically turn the plugs off after you get a set distance away, or alternatively, put them on when you are nearly back so your home is ready for when you step in the door.


A remote is also supplied with the starter kit which is capable of controlling up to four devices. You can do this either individually or all of them together using the master control buttons. I find this comes in useful when you don't have your phone to hand or want to keep it next to the sofa. I've always been keen to get smart home items so have really enjoyed using these smart plugs, it's made my life that little bit easier. The great thing is that you can keep adding more devices including for other areas of your home including heating, lighting and appliances so I'd definitely want to get some of these in the future.
