Do Wifi smartplugs that work with 5 ghz / Wifis do NOT have constant “update” problems?

Do Wifi smartplugs that work with 5 ghz / Wifis do NOT have constant “update” problems?

So I have a bunch of Meross Smart Plug Minis that work, * when * it works, pretty well in Homekit / own app. However, throughout the day they always seem “lost” and Homekit only says “Update” for them for a while (forever? I never had the patience for more than a minute). Sometimes turning off and turning on the Wifi of the iOS device solves this, but sometimes I try it 3-4 times and there is no change in this regard .. they seem to “update” forever. Moreover, my new Casron Lutron light switches + their bridge work perfectly so far .. all the time and also whenever the Meross ones are “Updated”, so I guess they are, not the Homekit / app Home etc. in general. & # x200B; Can I do something to improve this behavior of smartplugs and / or are there others that do not have that problem and work as I intended and all the time? The house is well covered in Wifi wherever the smart sockets are and, ideally, I would not change Wifi “only” for sockets. & # x200B; Any help or recommendation is appreciated!
