  • Q: Can this be used with a window ac or a portable floor ac?  (6 Answers)

    By Clarkie 

    • Best answerIt can handle up to 1800 watts, so if your AC draws less, it should work, however, I have not used them to power that type of device and motor loads are different than incandescent/led lights, so you might want to check directly with iHome. I have found these unreliable in use, so I would not recommend them.

  • Q: Can this plug be connected to Apple HomeKit and Alexa simultaneously so either app could control it?  (5 Answers)

    By WayneB 

    • Best answerYes, you set up an iHome account and you can connect that account to a number of different apps and bridges and smart home speakers simultaneously. I use mine with Wink, Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Home, simultaneously.

    • Best answerPlease check the specs of your television. This will not work on newer televisions because the plug responds to on/off rules (commands). If you turn the television "off" (example unplug the TV). When you plug it back in to the wall, the power will not come on unless the power button is pressed manually.

    • Best answerNo need to enter your hidden SSID or password. My SSID is also hidden & I had no issues setting mine up in seconds. Just download the iHome Control App & it will connect automatically using the information from your phone. Quick & easy!

  • Q: Does this work with IFTTT?  (8 Answers)

    By Joe42 

    • Best answerI don't believe it works directly through IFTT but you may get it to work through a hub like: iHome + HomeKit HomeKit Compatibility Controlling this HomeKit-enabled accessory requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 9.0 or later.

    • AThe device plugged into the iSP6 SmartPlug must have a manual power button and be left in the ON position at all times so the iSP6 can be controlled remotely. For more information please contact our Support Team at 1-800-288-2792. Monday - Friday from 8am - 10pm EST.
