Alexa Smart Plug Exioty

Alexa Smart Plug Exioty is supported by dual-band connectivity, meaning that it can connect to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi networks. This is a major benefit because there are not many smart plugs in the market that offer compatibility with 5GHz frequency bands.

This device also integrates seamlessly with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to control your devices using voice commands. The voice-pairing connection also makes setting up very easy. All you need to do is just plug the Alexa Smart Plug Exioty into your power outlet, then say "Alexa, discover devices". Alexa Echo will discover the smart plug and do the setup. After that, you can see the smart plug in the Amazon Alexa app and control it right away.

As the smart plug is integrated into the Amazon Alexa app, you can utilize the features in the app to set automation, such as creating routines, schedules, and timers. This can help you to save energy, ensure that your appliances are turned off when you're away from home, or even create a wake-up routine that automatically turns on your lights in the morning.

Another benefit that the Alexa Smart Plug Exioty offer is the mesh function. When your smart plug is disconnected because of the far distance it has from your Alexa Echo, you can easily set up another plug between them to restore connections.

Alexa Smart Plug Exioty

As the name suggests, the Alexa Smart Plug Exioty is heavily dependent on Alexa. If there are issues with your Alexa Echo, you won't be able to control your smart plug. If your Alexa Echo is outside the connection range, the smart plug will disconnect.

Furthermore, the Alexa Smart Plug Exioty is only compatible with these Alexa devices: Echo 2nd Gen, Echo 3rd Gen, Echo Dot 2nd Gen, Echo Dot 3rd Gen, Echo Dot 3rd Gen with clock, Echo Plus 1st Gen, Echo Plus 2nd Gen, Echo Show 1st Gen, Echo Show 5, Echo Show 8, Echo Show 10, Echo Spot, Echo Input, Echo Flex, Echo Studio.

If your smart home devices are not built around the Alexa ecosystem, this product might not be suitable for you.

Final Thoughts

Accessible at an affordable price of only $9.87, Alexa Smart Plug Exioty is a great option that offers dual-band connectivity and many features. However, it is very dependent on Alexa Echo and does not compatible with other smart home ecosystems such as Google Home or Apple HomeKit.

If your smart home ecosystem is built around Alexa and you're looking for a 5GHz-compatible smart plug with many features at an affordable price, we recommend Alexa Smart Plug Exioty for you.
