The updated plug works with the Meross app, available on iOS and Android, as well as smart home assistants like Apple's HomeKit, Alexa, and the Google Assistant. The plug connects via 2.4ghz Wi-Fi without the need for an additional hub, although through HomeKit, an Apple TV or HomePod is required for out of home controls and automation.
The revamped Meross Outdoor Smart Plug is available now on Amazon for $25.99 matching the current Prime Day price for the original model.
