Works perfectly, could be slightly smaller.
Install was very straightforward on my SmartThings Hub v2 - just plug in, press the action button on the bottom and put the ST hub into thing finding mode... comes up as an "Aeon Secure Smart Energy Switch UK" and then functions perfectly, including reporting Watts and cumulative kWh. Works exactly as you would expect really, so on that front it's perfect. The only thing holding it back from 5 stars is that it is slightly large compared to the most compact designs of sockets (e.g. the aeon labs smart switch 6 or fibaro wall plug), but it is the most compact UK plug type I've managed to find... so until Aeon or Fibaro see fit to release a UK version of their smaller plug sockets I guess this is as good as it gets! The main problem you will find is if you want to use the smart switch on a power strip, you may struggle to plug anything in on the immediately adjacent sockets.
