About the vendor and its products

Nexa is a Swedish supplier of smart home products but doesn’t seem to operate a web site in English. The solutions are based on either Z-Wave or Nexa’s proprietary protocol (and some older products are controlled using traditional RF-based remote controls).

A Nexa Bridge app is used to control the products, and there is both a Homebridge plugin and a Homey app.

LGDR-3500 smart plug

Outdoor

This smart plug is one of not too many that can be used outdoor, which in many cases can be useful. It comes with a remote control, which also makes it possible to set up timers, but via the Nexa app it can be integrated into both Homey and through it in HomeKit. That makes it a fully fledged smart plug that can be part of programs and automations. Our experiences with this device are good and it has been put to ma ny different usages; during winter the Osram garden spots are connected to allowing restarting them if they lose connection while in spring it helps control a greenhouse heater, and finally during December it controls non-smart Christmas lights.

Various rooms as needed

These are “smart plugs” that are many years old and that have not been used for a long time. They are not particularly “smart” beyond being able to be turned on/off using an old-fashioned remote control, but when we acquired a Broadlink universal remote control it became possible to integrate these into HomeKit. They are not in ordinary use, there are simply no more places in the house to install smart plugs, but when needed they are used when setting up new products that require frequent restarting. Connected to the Boradlink remote control, they in practice work just like any other real smart plug.
