Q: Can I control both outlets remotely in the YoLink In-Wall Outlet?
A: No, only Outlet 1 in the YoLink In-Wall Outlet is a smart plug, allowing for remote control via the YoLink smartphone app. Outlet 2 is a standard, non-smart electrical outlet and cannot be controlled remotely.
Q: I purchased a YoLink wall outlet and it has plastic inserts in the outlet slots. When I insert a plug, the plastic pieces won't move, and I can't insert a plug. How do I remove these inserts or get the slots to open?
A: The plastic inserts in the YoLink wall outlet slots are indeed a child safety feature designed to prevent children from inserting objects into the outlet. These inserts should automatically slide out of the way when you apply equal pressure on both sides of the plug while inserting it. If you're having difficulty inserting a plug, try applying firm and even pressure on both prongs simultaneously as you push the plug into the outlet. If the issue persists contact YoLink customer support for assistance.
