Power Strip

  • Question: How long is the cord? 

Answer:

5 feet

 

  • Question: Do I need this Hub? I thought it worked with google home mini or Alexa?

Answer:

Without YoLink Hub, YoLink Power Strip cannot be used with Alexa and Google home mini.
YoLink Hub connects the YoLink Power Strip to the Internet and YoLink Cloud, and the integration of the YoLink Power Strip with Alexa and Google Assistant is done through YoLink Cloud.

 

  • Question: Are all 4 outlets controllable with the Hub or are some “always on”?

Answer:

All 4 outlets are controllable. You can use the YoLink App to turn it all on/all off/partial on/partial off. Please watch the video guide on Part 2 – Functions for more details.

 

  • Question: Will this work with other hubs like SmartThings?

Answer:

Sorry, YoLink is an independent smart home system. YoLink Hub is the only central controller for YoLink products. Therefore, it cannot be used with hubs of other brands.
But YoLink Power Strip works with Alexa and IFTTT. If you have YoLink Hub and YoLink Power Strip, and your devices work with Alexa or IFTTT, you can connect your devices with Power Strip. Please watch the video guide for more details.

Answer:

Please click “Sync with Mobile” on the Detail page of YoLink App.
