Software
E-Welink is a free universal smart home remote control software. It can remotely control hardware products of different types and brands including ITEAD. You can download it from Google Play Store and Apple App Store. It supports dozens of smart devices, including smart socket, LED lamp, fan, heater, air purifier, etc.

Performance Result
ITEAD S20 Smart Socket wireless range is excellent. I have no problem to get it connected from the farthest place – kitchen away from the wireless router. Yes, it can be connected on any wall socket in my double storage house. As for usage, it is straight forward. You can turn on / off the connected device manually through eWeLink app. Or set timer that suit your needs. That’s it.

By the way, Amazon Alexa is supported as well. Too bad that I don’t have Amazon Alexa to test it. So you need to try it yourself in this case. For your information, eWeLink is connected to their cloud server for all the process. If the server cannot be accessed, you still can control S20 Smart Socket but limited to local network only.
