I have some smart plugs that I recently installed at my employer's office to deal with some remote-management issues we were having. I used two different brands (the GE one and the Belkin/WeMo one). They have different vendor apps for setting them up, and I've linked both accounts to my Google Home.
The problem is that the plugs are frequently going into a "not responding" state, where I can't control them, sometimes for hours, both in Google Home and in the vendor-specific apps. The plugs continue to work during this state, in that they're supply power to the connected appliances. I suspect that the wifi in the office may be disconnecting them (I'm using the office's "Guest" network). Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this, or what policies the WAP/network might be using that are interfering with the functioning?
