Good Morning Cyndy and Arthurlaporta,

They’re in the process of looking into the root cause as our typical troubleshooting processes aren’t working. We’d be happy to share more information of any possible solutions once they’re available. We appreciate your patience in the meantime.

Re: Smart plug install error

Thank you, Mariah. At this point none of my 05 smart plugs are working since I deleted them in order to refresh and try to bring them back up...I’m getting this error for all 05 plugs - I am pretty sure it is an issue with the APP...which by the way needs a lot improvement. I’m thinking of returning all 05 plugs to Best Buy and change brand into something else similar. Good product, it was working fine - but the App SUCKS! Thank you, and please advise asap.

Re: Smart plug install error

Hello all,

 

Thank you for your patience while we looked into this for you. It's my understanding the app should be updated soon to correct this problem, but in the interim, please follow these steps:

 

  • Follow the setup process in our app as normal
  • After going to settings and selecting the Insignia device’s WiFi, you will receive the “Error Opening Page” message about a hotspot login. Press OK to dismiss error
  • Press Done to dismiss the Insignia device’s popup page
  • Switch to Safari
  • Open a new tab if needed
  • Type in the following URL: bbyinsignia-iot://wifi_setup
  • You should be prompted with ‘Open this page in “Insignia”?’ Tap the ‘Open’ button
  • This should bring you back into Insignia Connect to finish the setup process

 

I hope this helps. Please let us know how it goes for you.

 

Regards,

John

Re: Smart plug install error

Works up to the last step listed above. However when you click the Connect button after you select the WiFi and enter the password to the WiFi in the App you have to select connect/continue button and it does nothing. You are getting closer.

Re: Smart plug install error

Morning Mcdonal75,

 

Thank you for sharing that the fix isn’t working quite as expected for you. I’ve shared the same troubleshooting steps with the other open thread as well. It’s my hope that some of our other friends here also try these steps to see if they get the same result. Please note I’ve also escalated your feedback back to the correct business team for further review. We’d be happy to share if they have any other suggestions for you to try.

 

Kindly,

 

Mariah

Re: Smart plug install error

Well, I went to Best Buy and managed to return only 2 of my 5 Insignia smart plugs, because they were purchased on December 2016 and Best Buy didn’t want to accept a return. So, since I have no patience to wait your engineers to fix your terrible app, I have ordered and received the Tan Tan Smart Plug - their app Smart Life is a billion times easier and more intuitive than Insignia’s. The set up was extremely fast and easy and the integration with Google Home took a few minutes. At my command, the lights turn on immediately (Insignia’s had a big delay sometimes). Please ask your team to look into Tan Tan (Smart Life app) and urgently do something to fix this issue (yes, now I have 3 Insignia Smart plugs just seating in my closet with no use). This is why some companies close doors and go out of business - please hear your customers and act fast. Competitors are out there, doing a good job. Good luck.
