Reviews on Amazon make me want to stay away from this item. Some people mention needing to have a BestBuy account in order for this to work... http://a.co/cDvloWe

You do need to create a Best Buy account if you don't have one to use them. I was able to link my existing Best Buy account (for shopping - it wasn't a new login for smart devices). However, these seemed pretty shoddy compared to the WeMos I have. They disconnect sometimes and have had to be completely reset and in order to get them working again. I wouldn't buy these again.

Lol. Thanks for the warnings everybody. Going to stay away from this junk. Nothing worse than needing some light in the middle of the night and not getting any.

This older version of Insignia's smart plug does NOT work with HomeKit. Only with Alexa and Google.

I own this plug and it's terrible. Once set up and linked to my google Home it constantly has trouble turning on or off. The setup disappears in the phone app. Even though the outlet is recognized, it often isn't there for selection to turn on/off in the app. I don't recommend this.
