Does this work with ST? Stringify or IFTTT?

I got this at the same price last month. It came on time and the setup was easy. We don't have any other smart home thingy so nothing to compare to, though when we went through the day light saving time I had to redo all the setup as the time was messed up. It paired with my echo instantly. Overall it's a good buy. Nothing extraordinary.

Very easy to set up and use but bad quality control. One of mine stopped working after a month. The other two are still working tho

I bought these last time they were at this price, received in a few days. Works with our google home setup with no need for any sort of hub. Setup is easy, smart life app is ok, but needs some work. Overall I think they are a good deal.

Thank u all for your responses, I guess I'm wondering if it's better to get smart wifi plugs that would work with an existing hub since u would only need to use 1 app vs these which requires another app.
I can see these having their own benefit for maybe having different setups within a house or wouldn't that be feasible? Still learning.

I've been through this. Bought a ihome branded WiFi plug with dedicated app and ST integration. Still hated the idea of it being reliant on my wifi so I sold it and ordered a zwave plus plug that works as a repeater too and extends the overall range of my zwave mesh network.

I jumped into smart home things rather haphazardly,, based on whatever deal showed up on SD. In the longer run it becomes a pain.

Integration is good. If you can afford it, buy something that might cost more but gives you piece of mind.

I even have a zigbee plug that I'd like to replace with zwave, not because I prefer one tech over other. Most of my integrated smart stuff is running on zwave, thus this zigbee bastard is sticking out like a sore thumb. adds no range to my devices.

examples, have both ecobee and nest. would love to get rid of nest cause ecobee worked just fine. nest can be linked up with ST but it's an unofficial and painful method.

myQ internet gateway for garage door that refuses to add ST to integration list. the God darn thing syncs up with nest but not ST. farking lol

I'm not an expert in any way, but to be fair this is not entirely true.
If this plugs use the Smart Life app then it is possible to make them work with IFTTT and SmartThings as long as you are ok with waiting 1-1.5 seconds extra for your plug to turn on/off and you count on an Always ON internet connection. I have so far been using many of these plugs since they have been coming up on sale for months and I have found a way to bridge ST and the Smart Life app using IFTTT. Every single one of my plugs I can manage them via the ST app, Asking Google Home to turn these on/off does update the ST app and triggers the action withing the first second 1 or 1.5 sec.
So far I have the following models: XS-SSA01, TUS-001, JH-G01U and YM-WS-1, The former 2 will appear in IFTTT for the Smart Life app while the rest will require the user to create a Scene within the app that will show up in IFTTT.
ST integration requires creating a virtual On/Off Button Tile and create an applet in IFTTT to bridge both the ST Tile and the Smart Life plug (or scene).
In a short sentence: it is possible but not the classical way; it will require some knowledge and it is kind of tedious. But once is done it's done.
