Anyone know why the Wyze plug outdoor has a “lip” sticking up interfering with the outlets? I finally had a use for mine but then couldn’t use it as it doesn’t have a flat surface for larger plugs like you find on outdoor equipment. It will only accept small plugs that don’t overlap the face due to this silly lip that protrudes. I suppose I could plug in a short extension cord, or file off the lip, but I do wonder if Wyze stuff gets user tested in the real world. All kinds of things (like AC adapters) can’t be plugged in due to this “feature”.
Now you’re making me go outside and look. I had noticed an issue. One has a standard outdoor 3 wire extension cord plugged in (with the molded plug), and the other has the huge plug with built in GFCI for an air conditioner.
I think it’s so water drips of that lip instead of running along the flat surface and coming in contact with your plug prongs.
It can work if the plug has a small raised area (like some GFCIs). The cord I needed to plug in is a heavy-duty one with a fat round plug. It would sort of work but wasn’t in all the way, so worse for water penetration than if it were flat
