Tempted at that price, but the reviews really look bad on this. Lots of complaints about reliability and random disconnects from wifi.

No idea who makes it. I bought one back in November (same price). At first, it would not work, but after doing a factory reset it worked perfectly. For HomeKit you don't even need the app.

No problems so far, but only a couple of months.

It doesn't cover up the second plug which is really nice.

I bought 4 of these for my Christmas light setup and would concur with the negative reviews. The Insignia app is terrible. Set schedules change themselves or disappear. Remote access does not function properly. I was never able to access any of the devices when I was not on the same wifi network. On the positive side I could control all devices through both the app and Apple Home on my iPhone while on the same wifi network with no problem. I was not able to test if remote access and scheduling worked better through the Apple Home app as I do not have an iPad or Apple TV which are required to act as a hub for those features.

FYI, this version does not support HomeKit...
