    Nevermind, found the confirmation on the support page.

    Remote access of the smart plug is enabled once you have registered and linked your Smart Plug using the mydlink™ service. When your smart Plug is enabled for remote access, you will be able to control your Smart Plug from anywhere using your iOS or Android mobile devices. Your Smar Plug device must also be connected to your home WiFi network for remote access.

    Cool. Does this work when the phone is not connected to (in range of) the home network?
