BG Smart Sockets?

Anyone using them with HE?

Just 2 types, what looks like square edges and rounded edges.

But £20 from Screwfix, so if they work, I'm in!

Hi, I'd be interested as well, I have a couple which i brought last year....before I went HE. They are very reliable with Alexa but obviously would prefer if I could integrate them properly.

Apparently they have broadlink chips in them and can be used via mqtt with Home Assistant according to a blog I found.

Is it this one you found? https://hasscasts.com/bg-smart-socket-review/

That's it.

You can now use IFTTT to control these sockets.

I saw these reviewed on hibberthome tech this morning. They look nice

I’ve bought one, I’m increasingly frustrated that there isn’t either a Zigbee or Zwave version which is simple, cheap and doesn’t have a LED so bright it illuminates the whole room. At the moment I’ve put the ZBMINI behind the double plate but then it doesn’t provide switching for each socket.
