Review of the Orvibo S20 WLAN outlet
Orvibo S20 WiFi radio-controlled socket - test report

First impression of the Orvibo S20

The Orvibo S20 is a Wi-Fi-enabled power outlet, which can be seen between the actual power outlet and the device as an adapter. The socket is controlled by an app that is available for both Android and iOS. The Orvibo S20 can operate devices with up to 2200W. It understands the WLAN frequency range 2.4GHz, as well as the encryptions WEP, WPA and WPA2.

With regard to the scope of delivery, a warranty card and an operating manual in English were included in addition to the socket.

commissioning

For commissioning, the socket must be in "Pairing" mode. In this case, the attached LED must repeatedly flash red. To connect the socket to the Wi-Fi you need a special app called "WiWo". In addition, the smartphone or tablet must also be in the wireless network. The app then sends the WLAN connection data to the Orvibo S20 socket, which configures itself independently.

App

Within the app you can manage the outlet. You can switch on and off, delete or change the configuration. In addition, the app has a timer function, so that the Orvibo S20 automatically turns on or off at certain times. Scenarios can also be configured.

Summary

The socket reacts immediately to key inputs, which are made via the smartphone or tablet. The workmanship of the Orvibo S20 is good, it is very easy to use and also offers parental control. The app offers many useful features, including a timer function and sceneries. Unfortunately, the outlet could not access my hidden Wi-Fi. Only when I made the SSID public did a connection work.

The Orvibo S20 makes everyday life a lot easier and is a good way to the Smart Home. Above all, anyone who carries his smartphone with him at all times can easily control his devices. Clear purchase recommendation!
