£24.99 @ Maplin
More of a heads up than a deal necessarily as these have been listed for £20 before. However they've been sold out in most places since Christmas so if you've been trying to get your hands on them

these plugs dont do ifttt. but tp-link said its coming soon.


Can't you use ifttt via Yomoni. Yomoni can trigger the commands using Alexa which the plugs do work with?

You can use ifttt via Yomoni as far as I'm aware.
Hi, when did they add ifttt to these, cheers.
Yup looks like they're all gone again. Didn't take long as I only got the email from them this morning.

Fyi you can add the two sensors in this kit to other systems and not need the hub (such as samsung smartthings) and then flog the hub on ebay...this makes for some cheap sensors for smartthings.

Should you wish to buy a Hive thermostat in the future, it comes with another hub anyway

Hive have 20% off everything at the moment if you only need the sensor
That's right. This is for someone who's planning to start Smart Home with Hive. The Hive Hub is required.

Can't see point of this. Door & Window sensors pointless unless as part of a burglar/security alarm( deterrent ) Without an audible alarm its pointless unless I'm missing something??. Yale Alarm YALE HSA6200 WIRELESS ALARM KIT £89.00 @ screwfix comes with 2 door contacts & 2 room sensors
That's right but that's only alarm. Nothing else. Hive starter is an entry to a Smart home. And even if I'm in my bed upstairs I know if front door or window downstairs is open. Got a notification on my iPhone and lights switch on. Just example.

This is silent alarm and I'm getting notifications on my iPhone every time door open. Then I can check on my Video Doorbell who's coming/leaving. And if I open the door lights upstairs switch on. Another benefit I can control lights using Alexa and Hive System. Of course that's my opinion....

This might just help someone. I had my Hive 2 fitted by a British gas engineer yesterday for £99. Basically, I had the engineer down yesterday to service my boiler and i'd read from another thread that they usually have these on them. At the time, I was prepared to pay £149. I asked the engineer to knock £20 off as it was Christmas, To my surprise, he went a step further and said that he could knock £50 off and he would pretend he was replacing an existing unit (or something along those lines). I signed the contract, he made a call to the office and 90 minutes later my Hive 2 had been installed and working. So over the moon.
We paid just £149 for it to be supplied and installed by British Gas (we only use their servicing products).

The £143 from Maplin is WITHOUT installation, needs to change the title of this deal, as Amazon at £135 without installation is cheaper...


I was going to update to just have John Lewis one. As you will see from the above comments I realise the Amazon one is cheaper. Hence why I expired this as it isn't the best available deal.

Excellent price if it is the item pictured. Maplin are usually rediculosly overpriced for tools and components. Did you get one OP? As I am wondering if the picture is wrong and it is just the spare teflon nozzles.


​If you are still interested I picked this up the other day and it's the full thing, good quality too.

I don't think these are £30+ everywhere. Amazon have them for £12.95 and they have bad reviews. They seem flimsy and don't last long
So you looked at amazon which have no stock lol well look a little more in to a search and you will see them all £30+ and as for build quality well its under a tenner you wont find any thing made of gold at that price fella

Would these work with PS4
It does not as it's 2 x 3.5mm connections
So are you saying it has separate mic/ear 3.5mm jack plugs?
yes, you can get a converter for ~£5 though so even with that on top this is a good deal

I've purchased one, thanks Sparks. If it picks up dog hair it'll be worth its weight in gold!
​No problem, I hope it works for you :)

It does. It's remarkably good for 40 quid! It takes a while to do one room but it beats getting the big heavy vacuum out every day. It does pick up dog hair but you have to be careful that the dust bin doesn't get full and the inlet hole doesn't get clogged. I recommend using it every day if you have moulting pets so that fur doesn't build up too much. It seems to go in completely random directions after it bumps into furniture so there's no method to its cleaning, but hey, for under £40, it's a steal.
For anyone who hasn't got one of these. It is well worth £40. Picks up so much. Does also do carpet. I took the mop off and finds it doesn't get stuck as much. Well impressed!
Narfette
picked one up today - works really well on the hard wood floor, even got under the fridge / washing machine..

No good on carpets, but not bad for £40


​Sounds good. Mines coming today so will test it out
squiff

These are terrible. Battery life is appalling, need to plug it in manually, doesn't do carpets, or anything with the slightest bit of resistance.
I also got mine for £36 (40, but 10% student discount) from maplins about 2 years ago, and it was the standard price.
How do you plug something in UNmanually, and if it's as bad as you claim, why didn't you send it back?

A couple of people were bickering in the comments about whether or not it did it automatically. Might as well explicitly say it.

I did send it back. This is a complete waste of money.
this is no dyson, I bought one with the intention of just using it for a robotics platform, but was impressed at how well it works given the price. if you've got £200 for proper one then get that, if not then go for it, it's better than a £40 robot vacuum should be.

Laws in the UK regarding drone flight makes this a risky hobby. At the moment, there is nothing to stop you going and buying a drone and taking it out flying, as long as the drone weighs less than 20kg and you are not using it for commercial reasons.

However, you must avoid flying it within 150 metres of a congested area and 50 metres of a person, vessel, vehicle or structure not under the control of the pilot. Thats not to mention the risk of getting sued under privacy laws if you are recording video too.

The penalty is unlimited fine or a custodial sentence. It just takes one pc correct do gooder neighbour to complain and you might be eating porridge for a few months. I've got a cheaper model with good range and already had people asking if I've videoed their property. I gave them the traditional one fingered salute.

No fun any more.


​care to back up your claim of unlimited fine and custodial, with factual evidence.

Interesting read on Drone forums with these things malfunctioning and flying off into the distance never to be seen again or if your "lucky" you find it smashed into the ground or a hundred feet up in a tree.
happens regularly and the manufacturer punts in down to pilot error. Beware X)


​That's true, although wasn't aware of anything re the phantom until you said. However, if you look in some of the social media forums you find posts like, 'lost drone', ' found drone in my garden,' etc and seen several for the phantom.

DJI will hear your case if you say the thing malfunctioned and few off or failed to respond to the controls. They have a way of finding if it was user error or product error as the controller stores the metrics. For e.g. If you say you pulled the joystick back but it careered forward into a wall they can check it.

No denying they're clear, but the volume on the mic is terrible.
I wonder if this just affects PC then..


​I have these for Xbox One and have no issues, in fact I am constantly told it is too sensitive so I fold the mic away a little. These are excellent and for the money in my opinion there aren't any that are better or comfier to wear for long periods.

Just an FYI - these have a problem with low mic volume. A guy I know online has them, and even with the latest firmware, his mic boost right up and my discord at 200%, it's extremely hard to hear him over in-game audio

Make sure you put "Jarvis 16.1" on and not the newest Krypton 17.0 version

The newer update is blocking any "builds" to be used on it (ie No Limits, The Beast etc)


You mean V17 Krypton won't allow a build to be installed? Can't say I have heard mention of that. I know some builds won't 'work' on Krypton, is that what you mean?

is not so good, the updated one gets better reviews. I have read a few reviews before buying this one and it generally gets positive feedback.

I've collect a reserved item at Newcastle upon Tyne branch and was given a £5 gift card rather than a voucher. Even better as I checked and this was active to use straight away, and presumably would last for whatever the usual expiry date on their gift cards is rather than having to be spent 26 Dec - 8 Jan as stated in the offer.

Same here - £5 gift card that can be used any time. Maybe pop back tomorrow and buy 100 AA batteries for £14.99 (less £5 with gift card and get another £5 gift card)
they price match other retailers too e.g. PC World. Don't know if you can still get a voucher afterwards though

​It's still seems a decent deal, ebay has a lot of fake sennheiser items for cheap and it's only dropped to £5 once on Amazon, so in balance it's a good price! Worth mentioning it's only available for click and collect though.

I am waiting until Poundland have similar ones lol
I go one even better. I say "switch off lights", and then I switch them off. I'm sure it will catch on but I realise true innovation like this takes time to proliferate. I also don't need my anything to talk to my anything else.
One of the most useful features of these lights is the ability to set timers, great for winter saves you coming home to dark hall way. Also if on holiday can set them to turn on and off to look like someones home. Not all about just being lazy / talking to them. I just have them in my lounge and hallway, although is nice to dim from the sofa when movie starts!
Timer settings work as a solid argument yeah. I was just referring to all the people falling for the silly gimmick that is Echo. There is practicality, as you've outlined, and there is paying over £100 so you can ask something to do something that by the time you've finished asking you could have just flicked a bloody switch. (_;)


Echo with raspberry pi and fauxmo. Can do some amazing stuff with a relay some batteries and wires. I have an echo and 4 dots, couldn't live without them.

Might be worth spending just a little extra for the updated version.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Divoom%C2%AE-Timebox-Portable-Bluetooth-speaker/dp/B01JO6WQMU
hey what's the difference? cheers
I think they have improved it all around, plus the front display has an extra 21 pixels.

ah thank you

Paid £35 quid for this last week. Seems pretty decent. A lot better than my chromecast which is pretty useless in comparison for similar money.
I currently have the google chrome. Can you please explain why this is better as I don't know if I will benefit from buying one. Thanks.


​Well, the main reason I bought this was for a TV in my kitchen. I didn't want to run a cable from the loft aerial so I can use this instead. You can download apps to this and do other things like play games if you were so inclined. The chromecast I only use to send 'stuff' too, which you can do with this also as far as I know.

I use the TV Player app on this and it works well for my needs of a kitchen TV, not sure if I'd want to use it as my main source of freeview.

Also has apps like Netflix and YouTube to use on the TV rather than send from a device.

I've not used it for long but it seems to be pretty decent.
Also same price on Amazon.

Bought them for 19.99 and applied the 5 quid prime app thing on top to make it 15 in total - real steal at that price.
​Ive heard people reference this £5 "thing" but no idea what it is. Please explain. Thanks.
So Amazon have a prime now app (available for iOS and android) and if they deliver to your post code and you make your first order you get a 5 pound off code for goods sold by Amazon - which is what I used to buy these. Please check if your post code is covered and take benefit from it, if it is -:)
Wow. Didn't know anything about that. Thanks for the info Matwalaboy. I will go check. :)
you are welcome - hope you can save that 5 pounds :)

It's an American socket

That explains why it looks so antiquated.

Just stick something metal in the socket. If you get a shock you know it's working fine.

If my sockets looked that weirdy shape and size I'd know things definitely weren't fine. And I'd also wonder where I'm supposed to get a 1940's style plug to go in it.
Very basic, handy for checking your sockets are wired correctly but thats about it.
Something you will probably use only once.

Decent ones by fluke, martindale etc have rcd trip, earth loop ipmedance and earth volt
tests but cost at least 10 times more.

Are these any good ? bought cheap batteries before and turned out to be false economy.
I've found they power RC cars well and they didn't go flat quickly, the ones from the pound shop didn't work in the controllers.
Well, Poundland do Kodak Xtralife 6 for £1, and they score quite high on the chart above..

maplin logoMaplin – Electronic Specialists Since 1972

It all began from the bedroom of an Essex apartment in 1972, when a trio of technology buffs started selling consumer electronics by mail order from their catalogue. As positive word of mouth spread, they were able to complement mail order operations with a physical store in Westcliff-on-Sea and they've never looked back. Thanks to increasing revenues, Maplin were able to set up additional stores and warehouses, and even develop a range of home-build electronic project kits.

Now under the umbrella of Rutland Partners management group, Maplin runs over 200 physical stores across the UK and Ireland as well as mail and telephone order operations and an online store. Maplin also established a drop-shipping service in 2013 for budding digital marketers.

The Maplin online storefinder lets you find your nearest brick and mortar store in the UK and Ireland by entering your postcode, clicking the interactive map, or selecting your location from the list.

One other important category in the online store is Special Offers. So if the sales banners or ads on the homepage don’t tickle your fancy, head to the special offers section where you'll see popular products at discounted prices in addition to introductory offers on new items and brands. And if you find a product somewhere else at a lower price, Maplin will match it or refund the difference if you bought the product from Maplin up to 30 days ago. What’s more, Maplin’s Black Friday sales event is a good time for bargain hunters to grab online-only deals.

Returns and Refunds Policy at maplin.co.uk

Maplin has a handy 30-day money-back guarantee if you decide you no longer want something, if it’s not how you imagined it would be after you open it, or if it’s the wrong item in the box. This step by step guide will help you create a returns request for unwanted products:

  1. The first thing you must do is contact Maplin to make a returns request within 14 calendar days of product delivery. The quickest way is to take the product to your nearest Maplin store. Failing that, simply email Maplin at [email protected], by telephone at 0333 400 9500 (01-8782800 for Irish customers), or write a letter to their freepost address at Maplin Electronics, FREEPOST MAPLIN, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Rotherham, S63 5DL.
  2. Maplin’s customer service will then give you a returns authorisation number.
  3. Repackage the item or items and post them to Maplin Electronics Ltd, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham S63 5DL. You are responsible for paying return shipping costs.
  4. The money will be refunded when Maplin are satisfied with the condition of returned items.

There are a few exemptions you should be aware of, though. First, you can’t return any item if you void the manufacturer’s warranty in any way, like breaking a seal (including on a DVD or CD) or activating software. Second, you can’t return items with a product activation key that was damaged after you bought them. Third, gift cards cannot be refunded once purchased. Fourth, any orders paid via PayPal can’t be refunded and only qualify for an exchange.

Plus, if you buy something from Maplin and it breaks down within a year, Maplin will exchange it or give you a refund (except PayPal) when you present the item and proof of your purchase to their customer service team as per the steps above.
