Etekcity Smart Outdoor WiFi Outlet (15A)

Model: ESO15-TB

  • Use Amazon Alexa & Google Home: Set up your smart outdoor outlet to work with voice control. Easily give commands to your outdoor appliances, even while you’re inside: “Alexa, turn on the backyard patio light.”

  • Control from Anywhere: This WiFi-enabled outlet isn’t limited by range, unlike RF-controlled technology. Wherever you have internet connection, enjoy managing your outdoor outlet through the VeSync app. Turn on your holiday lights from the comfort of your bed, or even from out of town.

  • Set Up Schedules, Timers, and an Away Mode: Set up over 30 programs such as Schedules, Timers, and an Away Mode through VeSync. Using these modes and functions often helps save electricity and cut down on energy bills.

  • Convenient Dual Outlet Design: Save yourself from extra installations—when you set up one smart outdoor outlet, you get two sockets to plug high-powered appliances into. Each socket can be individually controlled and customized through the app.

  • Sunset & Sunrise Options: Sync your Timers, Schedules, and Away Mode to work with local sunset and sunrise times. You can program Christmas lights to turn on right at sunset, or patio lights or decorations to turn off at sunrise—especially convenient during the holidays!

  • Handle More Power: Suitable for both indoor and outdoor appliance use, the outdoor outlet can handle appliances such as heat lamps, patio lights, etc., up to 1800W. You can also mount the outlet on the wall for extra convenience. Its power rating of 15A / 1800W means 2 appliances can be used at once.

  • IP44 Rating: The outlet is constructed to be UV-proof, weatherproof, and ready to brave the outdoors. It can also withstand light snow and rain. Check out the IP44 rating for more details.

  • Built Safe: Enjoy FCC- and ETL-approved hardware with surge/overload/overcurrent/overheat protections! Included with purchase: 1-year buyer’s assurance (with a free option to extend it by 1 more year), plus lifetime support from Etekcity’s friendly and responsive support team!

Troubleshooting

 

Why isn’t my smart outlet connecting to the VeSync app?

  • During the setup process, you must be connected to a secure 2.4GHz WiFi network.

  • Make sure the WiFi password you entered is correct.

  • Try moving your router closer to your smart outlet (164 ft / 50 m visible range is best).

  • Make sure you don’t have too many devices connected to your router. Your router may have a limit of connected devices which can be turned off in your router settings.

  • Close and reopen the VeSync app.

  • Clear your VeSync app cache.

  • Reset your smart outlet.

 
 

How do I change my WiFi network to a 2.4GHz WiFi network?

  • Most dual-band routers support both 2.4G and 5G networks. Select the WiFi name that does not end in “_5G”.

  • If your phone is attempting to connect to the 5G network, try “forgetting” or temporarily disabling the 5G network.

  • If you are unsure, or if the 2.4G and 5G networks do not have separate names, please contact your internet service provider.

 
 

I can’t find the “Etekcity” access point during configuration.

  • Press and hold the power button on the smart outlet for 5 seconds to trigger Configuration Mode. The “Etekcity” access point will appear in your list of available WiFi connections.

 
 

My smart outlet is offline.

  1. Make sure your router is connected to the internet, and your phone’s network connection is working properly.

  2. Delete the offline smart outlet from the VeSync app. Swipe left (iOS) or tap and hold (Android), and tap Delete.

  3. Reset the outlet by pressing and holding the power button for more than 15 seconds, until the LED light blinks rapidly. The outlet will restart and blink slowly again.

  4. Once the smart outlet has been deleted and reset, reconfigure your smart outlet with the VeSync app.

  5. When the outlet is online again, go to Device Settings and tap Upgrade Firmware.

  • Note: Power outages, internet outages, or changing WiFi routers may cause your outlets to go offline.

 
 

After adding my smart outlet to VeSync, why won’t the smart outlet icon appear on the My Home screen of the VeSync app?

  • After adding your smart outlet to the VeSync app, close and reopen the app.

 
 

Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant can’t find my app or can’t discover my smart outlet.

  • Make sure your wireless network router is close enough to your smart outlet. The smart outlet must be within a 164 ft / 50 m visible range from the router.

  • Check that your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant is working properly.

 
 

Why isn’t my smart outlet turning on/off as scheduled?

  • Make sure that the schedule is still turned on.

  • Make sure that your phone’s Location Services are turned on.

  • Make sure the smart outlet is connected to a working network and is not offline.
