Ledvance Smartplug+ Zigbee outdoor socket test

Today, I’m going to test and detail a rare Zigbee 3.0 compatible product on the market, that of connected sockets compatible outdoors. In France at the time of writing these few lines, it is to my knowledge the only product available for salein France. If you are a Belgian national, you can get the lidl plug for outdoor with consumption measurement and at the price of 22€. What a lucky bunch!

Conclusion

The socket is of good quality, the integration into zigbee2mqtt (therefore Homeassistant and Jeedom compatible) is done without problem, the translucent button is well done, however I put 3 stars because the socket does not meet EU France standards so not usable without an additional plug and that’s a shame, personally I still haven’t understood why French sockets don’t have the same standard.
