Ok, the sockets  connect to Broadlink Prov but my wi-fi LAN and so it is impossible to upgrade the firmware, the current version is V10018.

And it is greatly inconvenient to change line connection each time returning home, really similar discomfort.

For me it is absolutely necessary to use the wi-fi Lan of my house.

Hi dear friend,

I am sorry but not very understand your question, why you need change line when you back home ? I am confusing your question.

The SP mini actually can work well in LAN, even no internet connection.

My outlets not working in my LAN "Dominico" home,
only work on network "BroadlinkProv" and so it is impossible to control them when I'm not home.

Other question if I go into the house, my phone connects automatically to my wi-fi "Dominico" and not to "BroadlinkPro" 

 You need me to make the choice of the network that connect, manually, with considerable loss of time.


So my sockets not connect via my LAN  "Domenico"  


I hope I was clear

Tank's  for help

Hi, we just ask the broadlink tech help,

the socket didn't pair with "Dominico", the "broadlink prov" is the net work that the socket itself !!! [How do you make it out...]


jajaja...but it is very simple to fix, please let the phone connect to the wifi Dominico firstly,
then reset the socket by hold the button, when you see the quick blinking will be OK, and then match the socket by your phone app :)

and I will attach you the user manual. This manual is fit for SPmini and SP2.

Please check at page 2 :)
