" ...  Setup with the SmartLife app was pretty easy even on my dual-band Internet (it keeps trying to use the 5GHz) because I already knew to let it try to connect through 100%, then click "View Help," then click "How to Use Compatibility Mode?," which walks you through an alternate Internet connection procedure that uses the slow-blink mode to connect directly to the device. ... Once I got it set up on the SmartLife app, Alexa recognized and added it automatically (maybe because I already had SmartLife outlets set up).  ...  "
