Bought the 2 socket set. They appear to be the same as the other sockets we have from other sellers. I guess there's one manufacturer out there and a bunch of resellers.

Socket uses the SmartHome phone app for setup. Pro tip: be sure your phone and the socket are on the same wifi network or setup will fail.

If all goes well, setup only takes a minute or two. Now is the time to decide what you want to call the device. Choose wisely, since renaming in Alexa is a pain after you put it into a routine. If you've already got Alexa running, it should automatically become visible.

In the past, I've had good and bad luck with the long-term durability of these sockets. Some fail and need replacement after a month or two, and some have lasted for a couple years. I usually keep a couple in the drawer just in case. This set came out of the box working, so that's a good start.

If you're just starting out with Alexa/Google ecosystems, these are a good start.
