Published on January 4, 2021

[Action Required]

Hello,

Q. What is happening?
A. We are ending support for all WIFIPLUG LEGACY devices on all WIFIPLUG Servers on June 30, 2021.

Q. What does end of support / end of life for WIFIPLUG LEGACY devices mean?
A: As described in our terms and conditions, end of support for WIFIPLUG LEGACY happens in two stages. Starting June 30, 2021, the WIFIPLUG Servers will no longer apply any security patches and other updates to the devices functions, and all legacy devices (see below) will no longer be eligible for free technical support (end of support). In addition, you will no longer be able to create new functions using the WIFIPLUG app (These include setting scenes, timers or creating groups, renaming)  Starting July 30, 2021, you will no longer be able to update existing functions using the WIFIPLUG app, this includes onboarding or use of any oAuth applications, including Alexa and IFTTT (end of life).

End of support does not impact function execution. Your functions will continue to run. However, they will be running on an unsupported runtime which is no longer maintained or patched by the WIFIPLUG team – any errors, faults or support issued will not be the responsibility of WIFIPLUG.

Server decommissioned, complete end of life Jan 4 2022 – at this stage your devices will no longer function and will be disconnected from the WIFIPLUG cloud permanently.

Q. Why are you writing a blog and not contacting me?
A. We are writing a blog as many of our early users / legacy users created usernames that did not require an email addresses. This is a public domain and can be viewed by all customers at any time.

Q. How do I know if I have any LEGACY devices?
A. The following list of devices will help:

Q. I have WIFIPLUG HOME is that affected?
A. No, the WIFIPLUG servers have been optimally designed to facilitate the data and security of all WIFIPLUG HOME devices, including WIFIPLUG HOME v.1 (launch date 2018) and WIFIPLUG HOME v.2 (launch date 2021)

Q. What do I need to do?
A. You should consider upgrading your devices (some are nearly 10 years old) By moving to a WIFIPLUG HOME 1 or 2 version you will continue to benefit from important security, performance, and functionality enhancements offered by more recent releases.
