About the vendor and its products

Meross is a relatively young Chinese company, but one that still offers a rather broad ranger of products for the smart home. The products are divided across a number of categories (notice that some of the products are region-specific):

  • Smart plugs/smart power strips, spanning a number of different types, for both indoor and outdoor use

  • Lighting, an extensive category spanning both smart bulbs, a smart light strip that is as much as 10 m long, smart lamps, and smart switches

  • Garage door openers, also here in some different versions

  • Smart thermostat, for valve-based radiators

  • Smart humidifier and in May 2021 a smart air purifier was announced

  • Sensor for temperature and humidity

  • Smart "baby machine", a combined smart lamp and audio player for soothing sounds

  • Smarte remote controls, in a couple of versions

  • Base station, which is required for some of the products

There is a dedicated Meross app for setup and control of the products. This varies from product to product, but there is often compatibility with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT.

Component Room Experiences
Smart WiFi Garage Door Opener Garage (uninstalled)

 We have uninstalled it now, but we had the version with HomeKit support, primarily acquired since our existing smart garage dor opener, Tailwind, not had been updated with such support. Installing the opener was very easy, especially since some cable clips and other material had been installed with the Tailwind device and which could be utilized now. Integration into HomeKit was also straightforward, and Meross quickly fixed, through a firmware update, a bug that meant the door status always showed as "Opening...", whether it was open or closed.

Smoke detector with smart hub

Basement living room/garage

When we were looking for a smoke detector that was HomeKit compatible, there were some options to choose among, but this one from Meross was by far the cheapest. Setting up was easy, and (fortunately) we have not had any need for it, but it keeps watch over the garage.
