Troubleshooting the Gosund Smart Plug installation

Do not worry if you run into a problem while setting up your Gosund Smart Plug. The fix is often very easy.

  1. If the indicator of the smart plug isn’t flashing rapidly when the plug was plugged in, hold down the On/Off button and wait 5-10 seconds to see if the light starts flashing.
  2. To reset your smart device or switch to AP mode if it isn’t connecting to Wi-Fi, hold down the On/Off button from 5-10 seconds. You can do this directly within the Gosund App.
  3. Smart plugs will only work on 2.4 GHz WiFi networks. When setting up a dual-band router (i.e., it has both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz), make sure you select the 2.4GHz network.
  4. Make sure your plug is as close as possible to your router when setting it up for the first time. Once the plug has been set up, you can move the plug anywhere within the house.

 

This can be done by simply unplugging your router and waiting for 5 minutes for it to restart. You can then plug it back into the router and wait for it to turn on.

After you have set up your Gosund Smart Plug it will automatically connect to your router every time.

Using Gosund App

Go to the Gosund app and register for your account.

After you have created your account, open the app and go to the home screen. Tap the plus sign.

This will prompt you to add the device to your app. To set up the plug, select “electrical” then “socket”.

Next, make sure that the outlet you are setting up has a flashing light. For 5-10 seconds, hold down the On/Off button.

After that, the Gosund app will ask you to confirm your WiFi password in order to connect to the outlet. After you have done this, the Gosund Smart Plug will start connecting.

 

Return to the homescreen

You can then see your new device from there! You can adjust settings, schedules, or other options right from your home.

What to Plug in

You’ll need to decide what you want to put in your smart plugs.

These plugs are extremely versatile and can be used with any device that requires an outlet. After the smart plug is connected to the device, the app can be used to turn it on or off at the power source.

 

Make sure that the device you plug into turns on when it receives power. It won’t work if it requires input from you.

Many TVs are now in standby mode. When you plug your TV into a smart plug, and attempt to turn it on, the TV will go into standby mode. You’ll still need to use your remote to turn it on.

What are Gosund Smart plugs good for?

Smart plugs from Gosund, and more generally are the best way to make your home smarter.

 

The plugs simply plug into the wall and then your device is placed into it. You can plug in a lamp, for example. The schedules will allow you to control when the lamp turns on or off. The app allows you to control the lamp from any place in your house.

This is a more cost-effective option than replacing every light bulb and switch in your home.

You can also connect the Gosund plugs to your smart speaker (Google or Alexa) by using your voice. This means that you can ask your speaker to turn the lamp on or off.

The Gosund plug can be used to save money on your power bills. You can use your smartphone app to do the job if you forget to turn off something while you are away from home.

Plugs are ETL certified making them safe and secure.

No Speaker

You don’t need an Amazon speaker or Google speaker to use these smart hubs.

Smart plugs do not need to be connected to the app in order to work properly. If you have an Alexa, Google Home, or any other device that can connect to the app, you can set up the Gosund plugs to work with them.

You’ll still need the guide to follow. After you have connected your smart plugs to the Wi-Fi using the Gosund app, your smart speaker should be able to automatically find and connect to it.

This can be done manually or with the Alexa and Google Home apps.

The fact that the Gosund Smart Plugs are able to run without any speakers makes them extremely worthwhile. These plugs make smart home technology more accessible for everyone. They are worth considering.
