  • If you want to control the device's power directly, you can use the Sonoff smart plug.
  • Check your router settings , if they are in AP mode to be able to find the consoles
  • To ensure compatibility with iCafeCloud, please change your router to access point mode. You can do this by accessing the default IP address 192.168.0.1 and navigating to Settings > WiFi Router > Operation Mode > AP. This adjustment will ensure that your router is detected by iCafeCloud.

  • We recommend using the Sonoff smart plug only to control the power of the TV where the console is connected. and do not use the smart plug directly to control the power of the consoles it won’t shut it down properly.
    (How to connect the smart device with the console: wire->Sonoff->wire->socket->console NOT socket → wire -> Sonoff -> wire -> console. So you don't need to cut off your console wire. normally install the smart device under the pc desktop.)
