Set Up Your GFI Notify Power Outage
Alert System

Step 1 of 3: Configure Your Smart Plugs with the Meross App


Every GFI Notify order includes TWO FREE SmartPlugs. When you receive your WiFi SmartPlugs, follow the instructions that come with the plug to install it. That will include downloading the manufacturer’s app from the App store.

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.


To install the FREE “non-GFI” smartplug or any additional smart plugs you may have purchased, the video tutorial to the right shows how to install them. Just open the Meross App on your cellphone and tap on the “+” in the upper right corner. Then just follow the step-by-step instructions. The non-GFI smart plug is used to determine if your entire house has lost power. An additional smart plug can be used with GFI Notify to monitor an additional GFI circuit. (Remember: only one non-GFI outlet should be monitored for this purpose.)

Step 2: Set Up your Account Notifications

Please do not take these steps until you have completed the above step.

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.
