Set Up Your GFI Notify Power Outage
Step 1 of 3: Configure Your Smart Plugs with the Meross App
A. SET UP YOUR FREE SMARTPLUGS
IMPORTANT: Write down the email and password that you use in this step. The smart plug can be set up in an electrical outlet near your wifi router.
B. SET UP ADDITIONAL SMARTPLUGS
Step 2: Set Up your Account Notifications
A. SETTING UP GFI NOTIFICATIONS
On your computer (not your cell phone), click on LOGIN/ACCOUNT to log into your GFI Notify account. Enter the User Name (or email) and Password that you used when setting up your GFI Notify account. Next, click on “SmartPlug Notifications”. Here you need to connect your Meross account by using the User Name and Password you used when installing the Meross smart plugs.
When that is done and you click on LINK ACCOUNT, you will automatically see all of the Meross smart plugs that you installed. Here you can change the name of any plug.
Step 3: Test Your Devices!
Now Let's Test The Process!
To test the entire process, physically remove the GFI plug from the electrical outlet. You should get a notification in about 6 minutes. After that, also remove the non-GFI plug from the electrical outlet. You should get a notification that your whole house power is out.
Now, plug both plugs back into the electrical outlets. Generally, a power restored notification should appear in less than 3 minutes.
Finally, plug the plugs into their final destinations. The GFI plug can be plugged into any outlet in series with the GFI outlet. The non-GfI outlet plug can be plugged into an outlet anywhere in the house.
We recommend that you do similar testing about every 3 months.
