I used tuya-convert [github.com]. It is nice because you don't have to open the device or anything.

Once it's flashed, you just have to change the template it's using to enable all the outlets and power monitoring features. You can then emulate a hue bridge device or belkin wemo (use hue bridge to have enable each outlet to be controllable).

I've attached some photos of how my template is configured and what the main screen of the device looks like once it is flashed.

I like this setup as it also allows for having local control of the device, even if we lose our internet connection we can still control the outlets as long as our local network stays up. I used to use home assistant [home-assistant.io] but found that I could get by fine just by bookmarking the ip addresses of the different devices I have on the network if we ever need to control them without Alexa.

I have 5 of this and love it. 3 of the 4 switches are smart and you are able to control 3 of them individually. IIRC, energy monitoring is only on the 3 smart plugs. However, it only monitors energy of the 3 switches as a whole(no individual monitoring). Uses the KMC app which works fine

I have 3 or 4 of these also, very happy with them. It also uses the urlhasbeenblocked app if you have other things using that.

This is a great price for a great device.

I've got a couple of these running in my apartment right now. I flashed them to use the tasmota firmware and use them with Alexa with great reliability. One is set on a schedule to turn on a space heater just a little bit before we wake up, it's made getting up this winter much more bearable. I plan on using it to control our swap cooler come summer time.

I had one but I returned it.. I am not sure if it was defective or because it was far from my WiFi router..

It would keep turning off once in a while.. Not sure if it was related to losing WiFi connectivity with my router..

Thanks for the info, was wondering if they were tasmoto compatible.

This is why I don't understand why people were so crazy about that $5 amazon smart plug deal (granted, that's much smaller). This is only $10 and apparently it's much better.
