I have just been rather forcibly updated to the new DLink app (, which I used to use with a bunch of DSP-W118 smart plugs to turn lights on and off according to a schedule depending on whether we were at home or not. The new app is "more intuitive" - NOT.  It did not take my setting over into the new app, and I cannot for the life of me discover how to set the plugs up to do what I need them to do.  The software is a complete shambles.  


Have any of you out there got to grips with it?  If so, please give me a few pointers -- at the moment I'm not able to get it to save any schewules at all.  I'm using it on a Galaxy S7.

Nothing much really - tap on the menu and find Schedules. Add a new schedule, select which device, drag your finger around the calendar to determine week days and time...


To remove a schedule tap Edit on the top-right of the schedules list, then tap the (-) signal.

Great, thanks Mauricio, that helped a lot.  I had 15 schedules brought over from the last iteration, with quite a few duplicated.  I don't have the (-) to remove a schedule, but swiping left got rid of unwanted schedules.  I still don't find it intuitive, but it may be my intuition at fault...  I could find no help on using the app online (yesterday).
