Anyone having issues with Amazon Smart Plugs?

I've had a devil of a time with Amazon's Smart Plugs. These plugs are 2.4Ghz only. I don't have any issues with TP Link's HS100/101 plugs, but these Amazon Smart Plugs are a pain. Anytime I lose power (or want to move them), they won't reconnect to the network. Anyone else having issues with these plugs?

    I don’t have any experience with these plugs (I do have a couple of the Wemo smart plugs), but one troubleshooting thing I’d recommend is that if you have Band Steering enabled (Network Settings > eero Labs), turn it off. Band Steering can cause issues with some devices (even with enterprise grade wireless networks).

    Thanks cMoo92 I did have Band Steering On and have disabled it now. Only Smart Queue Management is now on.

    Bought one for testing, as it was on offer, and found it to be the easiest smart plug to set up.  Better than WeMo or TP Link.

    Did it work for you, turning Band steering to Off?
