Step 3: Test Your Devices!
Now Let's Test The Process!
To test the entire process, physically remove one smartplug from the electrical outlet. You should get a power loss notification within 4-6 minutes (which is the default interval). You can change that interval later. Wait until you receive a notification.
Now, plug that same device back into the electrical outlet. Generally, a power restored notification should appear in about 3.5 minutes.
Finally, plug the monitored smartplugs into their destination circuits. Remember that the appliance does not need to be plugged into the smartplug itself. The smartplug can be plugged into any open outlet on the same circuit. Do a final test at the destination location to make sure that your wifi signal strength is sufficient. Your system is ready to go at this point!
We recommend that you do similar testing about every 3 months.
