  1. Once you figure out how to use timers (put in days of the week) it works awesome. I have been using it for over one year with no problems. One negative for all apps like this is that they need a constant connection to the internet, obviously if the connection disappears (or wire is weak) automations are missed. So I would not use a setup like this for something critical. other than that, I love it.

  2. To the extent of its features, this app is very good. However, it is missing some basic functionality IMHO. Such as “if/then/else” logic. some devices, such as dual-location 3-way switches, operate “backwards” at times (on instead of off, etc). Don’t know if that’s this app’s issue or the device’s, but it would be useful to have a way to troubleshoot–which is another key missing feature IMHO. I plan to continue using this app. Thank you to the developers!

  3. :D dice:

    It does what it’s supposed to, but it would really be nice if the developers would create a home screen widget that allows you to choose specific individual devices/rooms. It’s a bit inconvenient having to open the app completely just to turn the lights in my room on and off, and the current devices widget is huge and clunky. If they implemented this, then the app would be perfect.

  4. Works once only. The first use is good. I use it with a Bluetooth kitchen thermometer. After it connects, you can monitor the temperature progress as intended. The problems begin once you stop/loose the connection. The app will sometimes reconnect but it will no longer track or save data. It will only work again if I uninstall, delete data, restart phone and reinstall the app. Any saved data is of course lost. So frustrating!

    Looks like the app was changed recently and setting up a schedule is easier than before which was a major complaint of mine, so that’s good. Everything else works well, my devices work as expected. The interface and layout still needs some work to be more user friendly, but overall I am satisfied.

  6. E Grayson dice:

    Easy to install. Fairly intuitive. It works when the software which came with Lenovo smart bulbs, wouldn’t control their own devices. Interacts with Google assistant, too. For scheduling, it’s a little vague. I can schedule a light to come on at specific times. But, there’s no “off’ command. (Maybe they ran out of space on the server or the scheduling software was written on a Friday?) For setup on the bulbs, the phone had to be connected at 2.4Ghz. But, after setup, it works fine on 5G.

  7. Up until 8 days ago, they worked perfectly with Alexa. All 10 lights changing colors, scheduled lighting and commands worked great. I’m not sure if it was an update but now they’re basically non-functional until controlled directly with the app. I’ve factory reset them several times and may just replace them all with another brand. I’ve have them for over 2 years.

  8. Please implement a number pad option for inputting settings like temperature. It is so difficult to dial-in exact numbers due to the large temperature range, making it frustratingly difficult, sometimes impossible, to get the number I want. I gave up, and had to settle for the closest number I could get it to. It’s extremely frustrating, and completely unnecessary…. Just add a number pad option along with the slider.

  9. I like the app, it is easy to set a schedule. However, about one year ago I added the four smart plugs I bought. I deleted one recently and was not able to re-add it. I spent hours, looked at notes I had made, talked to tech support, etc. Somehow now it can’t find the unnamed and unnameable 2.4g network coexisting in the AT&T 5g network. I bought a set of Kasa plugs and their app added it smoothly. I also have cameras which found the network without difficulty.

  10. Stopped working with Alexa app. Gave up trying. They used to work no problem.. All plugs of this type same problem. Definitely on their server end. Update: Apparently, the actual smart outlet appeared faulty as I was able to correctly able to use the app to successfully setup a similar outlet that did get recognized by Alexa. I have discarded that outlet.

  11. (Currently it would be 1⭐, as the last update broke the app for me and apparently many others in the comments. Leaving 4⭐ as I’m sure they’ll get it sorted.) Good app, straightforward functionality. Pairing is either fast and easy or impossible. It’s paired with every brand/device I’ve thrown at it so far (when it works) and the control options typically are fairly equivalent to if not better than many native apps. 4/5 due to reliability issues; understandable, but a semi-regular occurrence.

  12. So it connected when I got it a couple days ago. Granted it took messing with it for about 30 mins but still got the connection to work. Turned it off to move it to another room and now it’s back to square 1. Only difference is now it won’t connect at all. It’s even closer to the router and no go. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. Nice intro to your product. Makes me think twice about investing in other items. Hopefully this is just a one off event and I’ll revise this if better

  13. The app is far from user friendly, or “easy” as they state in the brochure. The support is without a doubt the worst I’ve experienced. They expect you to go back and forth messaging in the app on your phone typing with one finger and refuse to call you to resolve any issues. Once you finally get it connected it’s confusing because when you open it it says “No smoke alarm” which most would read as the device is not configured in the app, but their intent is that there is no smoke. Obviously Engl

  14. I have my snake plugged into this plug. I have it set to automatically turn on and off at 8am and 8pm. This has been working perfect for me for months but all of the sudden the plug is offline. I tried re-downloading the app, setting up new routines and tried relinking to my alexa and it still is not working. Please fix! This is putting my snakes life at risk! I can’t always be home to turn the lamps on and off

  15. Terrible. The app and the lights worked great back months ago for months when I first got them. Then all of a sudden I noticed the lights changed colors automatically. Opened the app and had to sign up with an account. Did that and tried to change the lights back to the color I want. Does not work. The same one bulb is controlled by all the devices listed in the app. I can only control 1 of my 6 bulbs. Going in the trash. What a waste.

  16. I don’t know who’s brilliant idea it was to make an excellent functioning app and make it utterely useless. The scheduling function was taken out of the choices. I used to be able to program a device to turn on and off a various times and days, along with sunset and sunrise. What is the purpose of this app if all you can do is a timer function. I have previous routines programmed on devices that I can’t modify or delete that are still active. Utterly useless Rate ZERO Stars

  17. My devices refuse to pair. issues were working fine for over a year with no issues, and now they suddenly won’t stop blinking and the pairing can’t find them. I’ve triple checked my WiFi and Bluetooth settings, and everything is correct. Never had a problem until recently, and I’m seeing from others that I’m not the only one. PLEASE FIX THIS!

  18. Really have come to like the way the Smart Life app has integrated into all my other smart devices. I’ve installed everything from Alexis products, off-brand plugs & switches, to outdoor lighting, and even music equipment and it’s all easily bundled into Smart Life. Very easy UI, design, and can also do everything away from home! Great job to the developers!!👍🏻

  19. My smart outlets have worked perfectly for nearly 4 years; now, suddenly, they are always “offline” and don’t converse with Google Home. Firmware for each plug is up to date. Google Home is up to date. Extremely frustrated and it seems like I’m not the only one with this issue. May be forced to buy different smart outlets if issues aren’t resolved.

  20. The app has a widget that is supposed to allow quick control of your devices without opening the app, but at least on my phone it makes my device crash every 5 seconds, so the function is just useless. Other than that, the app works great.

  21. Good hardware but terribly overbloated and glitchy software. The lag between inputs and outputs on digital switches is sometimes as long as 10 seconds, yet somehow there is no lag when doing the same action via Alexa/Google Home. This tells me the issue isn’t the hardware itself, but the Smart Life app. Tuya will never succeed in the mass market if they cannot optimize things for the average consumer

  22. Works very well. Easy to use & figure out. Pairing is quick. Some items have “phantom” programs that don’t show and can’t be deleted that turn lights off/on. Annoying, but may be the lights, as we have several brands. we don’t use Alexa or Google, just the app.

  23. Aside from it taking me over an hour to finally connect this device to my phone. It’s been nice. I’ll no longer have to hunt for the remote. But it would be nice to have more customization for some buttons. I’d like to re-label the INPUT buttons to make it easier to select the correct input… yes I’m a little frustratingly forgetful.

  24. The widget doesn’t follow the placement order shown/set in the app, making it hard to keep finding which device you want to toggle. Scenes don’t allow for bulbs or light strips to be “toggled” like plugs do, so separate actions must be made to turn things On then Off. Light strips don’t obey scene color settings, just turn on white. Setting custom icon images for devices would be great. A Wear OS app would be great.

  25. This app allows me to manage smart products from different vendors in one app rather than installing an individual app for each product. The downside is that there are interface inconsistentcies because each vendor still has their own interface for their product but it’s still better than running 10 different apps on my phone. You can also create scenes and IFTTT routines across different smart devices which would more difficult to do outside of single unified interface.

  26. What happened to this app? The scenes stopped working since the last update. Door contacts are pretty useless if they only trigger one time. Outdoor camera always says it’s offline. I only have 4 scenes programmed and they all work great one time. then they have to be deleted and reprogrammed. Useless.

  27. *Update* App continues to be a technological dumpster fire. I really do not understand how it continues to fail in every conceivable way. Turns on several devices radomly everyday. Yes, they have been factory reset several times and removed from all programming. Still occuring. Never happens with the 2 dozen Kasa devices I am using with their app.

  28. A horrible app. I only use it with a timer attached to my hose bib to water the lawn. It locks up my phone (android) every time I use it. Touchscreen becomes unresponsive or it double-clicks on every touch. It goes like this: Install app, water my lawn, clear cache & data, restart… or uninstall app until it’s time to water my lawn again, then install app again. Weeee.

  29. Update: After adding another wifi router for the 2.4Ghz required (because I am not willing to reprogram everything in my home to accommodate this app and plugs) the system is working again..we’ll see for how long. Previous review edited for space restrictions: PLUGS, LIGHTS, OR ANYTHING THAT DEPEND ON THIS APP! Worthless and a complete waste of money!An update to this app lost all the settings to my home..great app before update..Hours of work and a waste of valuable time. Thanks for nothing!!

  30. Works well and is completely adaptable with sperate controls over each outlet. Wifi connectivity from the outlet to my router has been flawless and I can control the pool filter from a distance. After hanging the outlet and plugging in my filter, I added a ‘skirt’ around the bottom with 4″ tape and have had no water issues dripping into the sockets or pooling on the plugs causing corrosion as happened with my last variety outlet

  31. I just need to make all of my new and future Wi-Fi plugs and devices Smart Life compatible. Send me the list! If you don’t want to get another app, just look for devices that say “Smart Life”. When you rename your plugs something simple (lava: for the lava lamps, strip: for the light strip etc..) and you will get the best results.

  32. Jos M dice:

    I have the alarm system. It works great if you want a simple house alarm that sends you notifications if its triggered when your away. The app is easy to use and let’s you change settings for all the sensors. A few months into use and so far it’s worked great.

  33. Nice integration with Alexa and ITTT as well as built in automation. for instance I ask Alexa to turn on my air compressor and this app sees the outlet turn on and automatically also turns on the shop light and 8 min late is set to turn the compressor back off as a protection measure. Only wish it was compatible with all my automation devices.

  34. Feature rich and intuitive, it’s come a long way and it’s my favorite IoT control app. I wish I could run all devices through this app. One thing I have not been able to figure out is how to sort my entire device list alphabetical order, which is really annoying to not be able to do.

  35. C dice:

    This app sucks when it comes to paying for the VAS added video cloud service. The times don’t match the videos and it’s just a mess to use. I don’t know why I keep paying for pure junk but it needs to be fixed. I have recordings showing at 2am but the slider will not go back beyond 4 am and even at that some videos are just a blip then cut to the end. If it isn’t right stop and fix it or don’t make it an option to pay for. The automated functions work well as well as turning devices on or off.

  36. The key is to make sure your cell phone is on the same wifi. Some of us have multiple access points and change which one we are connected to for security reasons. The app does not support the newest ip6 protocol, leaving the device useless.

  37. Has worked well with all the Smart Bulbs, Lamps, Outlets and Power Strips I’ve purchased, although I went through significant trial/error at first since app supports multiple manufacturers. App is a bit clunky to navigate, but after figuring out where things are, it does what it’s supposed to do, very well. Would be nicer for app to mimic TP-Link’s navigation (or be better than TP-Link’s) to identify new devices, and set/program features (that’s the clunky part). Overall, it works. -G. Jetson.

  38. Tom Smith dice:

    Update 4/4/22 It turns out the features I was missing are there, just not intuitive. Customer service replied and showed me how..now I love this app.. 5 stars, baby! Update 3/2022: Automation works well. Would like to see improvements in automation, such that can remove a device from a scene without deleting the whole scene. Also would be nice to reorder the devices shown on home screen. Basic on off control from phone works, but automation doesn’t. Defeats the whole purpose

  39. Rin Rem dice:

    Works half the time, most of the time though, it says everything is offline. When clearly it is not. The amount of times this thing looses its connection to connected devices is mind boggling. This app is more troublesome then helpful. This is not a smart app. This is a dumb app. What a wasted potential. Not to add to the fact every update so far has done nothing but limit what you can do with groups. Trash app and trash updates. Look elsewhere for an app to control lighting and the such.

  40. Tracy Lam dice:

    I was trying to put in smart plugs for a few lamps but they just weren’t connecting. I thought it was a plug issue since my wifi worked and I had no issue connecting to anything else. Well, I got a different brand for the plugs and same issue. Turns out it’s probably not the plugs and the app just sucks. Kind of mad that I wasted time on this. So much for smart living when the basic app doesn’t even work.
