Can ring smart plug tolerate backfeed?

Can the ring Outdoor Smart Plug tolerate backfeed on the “hot” terminal, as from a bypass circuit?

Hey @ROGERBOHL. The Outdoor Smart Plug is capable of controlling most devices that plug into a standard 120V home outlet, but neighbors must be mindful to not overload the device. The Outdoor Smart Plug cannot support current draw more than 15A, exceed 1800W of resistive load, or control more than a 1/2 horsepower electric motor. I hope this information helps! :slightly_smiling_face:
