Meross Smart Plug Mini – total junk? Constantly “no answer”

Meross Smart Plug Mini – total junk? Constantly “no answer”

I have dozens of devices that work smoothly in the Home application. I bought a pack of four smart mini-connectors from Meross on Amazon about a week ago and they seem to be unwanted? I’ve heard good things about Meross (and I have one of their smart lamps that I’ve had zero trouble with in the last year), but these sockets don’t work. They are so simple to set up and work a little. But, 12-24 hours after work, I no longer respond randomly in the Home app. The only way to fix the problem is to remove them from the wall and then reconnect them. I reset my network thinking it was a wi-fi problem, but that didn’t make them reconnect. I also ported them to the Meross app to make sure the plug firmware has been updated and is. I have a mesh network at home and all the other 30 devices I’ve connected all over the house work perfectly, including a dozen HomeKit compatible devices, so I don’t think it’s a network issue. Are these outlets just unwanted? I have two other smart outlets, the Koogeeks, which cost about $ 30 a piece that I’ve been using with zero hassle for years. When I saw a pack of 4 smart HomeKit compatible plugs from Meross on Amazon at about the same price as a single Koogeek plug, I thought I had nothing to lose. Now I’m starting to wonder if the reason they’re so cheap is because I’m actually junk. Does anyone else have similar problems? Is it worth getting a replacement or should I return them and look for something else?
