Vs a more mainstream brand like Wemo or all IoT not worth the risk?

Does anyone know if these plugs will work with the smart life app? Product listing doesn't have this information.

Depends on your level of paranoia. IOT will ALWAYS be insecure, its why the device is 12 dollars and not $200. It is not cost effective to make these types of devices secure, and so unless you want to fork out the cash, they wont be. Nothing wrong with taking precautions, but dont buy into the paranoia.

Fake chinese knockoff company. Those "2 pack" logos designed to mimic the amazon logo are a dead giveaway. Done to give the impression that the brand is related or endorsed. Don't buy.

Excuse my ignorance, but would the risk be limited to someone turning on and off your outlet?

General question on home automation and smart plugs. How do smart plugs work if they are on 2.4 GHz wifi but the rest of my system (phone and computer) are on 5 GHz with different SSID names?
Most of these products allow remote access. You can control these from everywhere as long as you have internet access.

Realize that to have the capability to connect to a wifi network, report back if the device is on or off, etc is basically a mini computer. Sure, they are low power and low performing, but none-the-less a computer. If the device is compromised it can provide an outside attacker a tunnel in to your own network.

No.

Technically if they gained access to this device remotely (via backdoor or compromise, etc)- they can access your wireless network behind your NAT/router firewall - that can pose a significant risk.

There's also the risk that there's a defect that could be exploited to trip a breaker, cause a fire, etc under some circumstances. (IE: loop cycling a high load device on and off very quickly could damage the device, cause a fire or trip a breaker pretty easily. Some people did this with early wemos as a proof-of-concept if i recall.)

If I didn't already have 3 WeMo plugs, I would definitely try these. This is a little less than half the price I paid for the WeMo plugs. TU

Not limited to that. The firmware or programs on the plugs make them smart. Hackers might be able to inject their codes to run on those plugs. Since the plugs are inside router/firewall, other connected computers or devices are exposed directly.

Most routers nowadays treat both bands as the same network. Although, sometimes they offer functionality to have them act separately.
I assumed they each spoke to the internet separately, so which wifi band it's on wouldn't matter in the slightest. Is that not the case?

Lol, this is a Amazon item. I'm not saying anyone needs to buy but the multiple package is sold on a lot of items.
