If you are looking for a way to make your home appliances smarter, then the Gosund Smart Wi-Fi Plug is a perfect solution for you. In this guide, we will take you through the entire process of using the Gosund Smart Wi-Fi Plug and how to connect it with Alexa.
Firstly, download the Smart Life app from the Play Store or App Store. After downloading, create your account by finishing the simple registration process. Next, connect the Smart Plug with the socket and press the on/off button for about five to ten seconds. As you can see, the blue light has started flashing, which means that your smart plug is working correctly.
Now, go to the Smart Life app and select ‘add device,’ then select ‘electrical outlet.’ If the blue light on your smart plug is still flashing rapidly, then select ‘confirm indicator rapidly blink on the smart light map.’ Enter the password for your home Wi-Fi, and wait a few seconds while it connects and loads to 100%. The light on the smart plug will now turn red after a successful connection.
After successfully connecting your smart plug with the app, rename the plug in your app to easily remember which plug is connected to which appliance. To connect your smart plug with Alexa, you will need the Amazon Alexa app. If you do not have it, download and install it now. On the Alexa app, click the menu icon, then select ‘skills and games.’ In the search box, type in ‘Smart Life’ and select the Smart Life app icon.
Enable the Smart Life app by tapping the enable button, and input your Smart Life app user name and password. Then click ‘link now’ and finally tap the ‘authorize’ button. Your Smart Life app has been successfully linked to Alexa. Now close the window by clicking the X in the top left corner. Click on ‘discover devices,’ and your Alexa app should find your new smart plug. Once it’s done, click ‘done.’
Now you can use voice commands to control your smart plug, such as “Alexa turn off lamp.” Following the steps in this guide should help you use the smart plug effectively. If you have any issues, contact the Gosund technical support department at service at gosun calm.
