What is Plum’s return policy?


We will accept returns within 30 days of the purchase date if the product is not derated and is good condition along with the original packaging & accessories. The purchaser is responsible for the return shipping costs. Contact our support team to set up a return and obtain an RMA case number.


What is Plum’s warranty policy?


The warranty covers all product defects for 1 year from the date of purchase. 


Anything beyond 1 year will be decided on case by base basis. 


We often send refurbished units that have been tested, repaired, and fully functioning depending on availability. If your defective unit has been derated, we will send a replacement unit that has already been derated when available. 


We send advanced replacements and include pre paid shipping label to return the defective product. Once the replacement product has been installed, please return the defective product in a timely manner to avoid additional charges.

Can I install a Plum Lightpad on a 3-way circuit with a dumb switch?


Yes but this will disable the dumb switch which technically makes it a 2-way switch. If the Lightpad is installed on the Load side of the circuit, the dumb switch will cut power to the Lightpad every time it is flipped on or off causing it to reboot. We highly recommend using a Lightpad on both switches for the best experience. 


What wifi frequency does Plum use?


Plum Lightpads use the 2.4ghz frequency band. If you have a dual band router and the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands have the same SSID, you will need to login to the router admin panel and separate them by giving them each a unique name. 


example: [Mywifi_2.4ghz / Mywifi_5ghz]
