Scott Gibson’s version of this adapter was branded EcoPlug; Walmart sell a version under WorkChoice 1 Ol and Amazon have a version called Woods WiOn – they’re all based on the ESP8266.
The switches can only be controlled via the app (which is pretty crap) but I have captured and dissected the communication and discovered it is essentially just a UDP packet controlling the switch state. I was considering writing an openHab binding for it; but decided to open up the switch instead.
