Watts Clever INPLUG APP Controlled Power Point Socket

Watts Clever have rebranded a WiFi Controlled Power Socket allowing users to turn on and off devices connected to the socket, and monitor power consumption of the device. I have purchased one for the energy monitoring feature.

The last version of the Watts Clever branded app is version 1.1, last updated on the 15th December 2015. Disappointingly, when executed on later versions of Android, the app will not start but rather report:

"Unfortunately, Inplug has stopped"

Sniffing the device with Wireshark shows it uses a hostname of "Ankuoo Neo-XX-XX-XX, suggesting it is a rebranded Ankuoo NEO PRO

Hence, downloading the Ankuoo NEO App successfully works with the Watts Clever branded device and Lollipop.

The latest version is 1.2.1, dated 28th February 2016 and resolves a compatibility issue with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Further investigation shows the device talks back to the cloud using and appears to be a Broadlink SP2 Smart Plug.
