Edited by:"schmecksville"Found 23rd Nov
Argos have matched Maplin and Amazon on price at £19.99 each, but also have a 3 for 2 offer on until 1st December to get them down to essentially £13.32 each

Can also get an Echo Dot and 2 x HS100 Smart Plugs for £59.97

Edit: Due to Argos IT issues after black friday, it doesn't show properly when added to basket. If you contact customer services or local store, they should honour it as most people have had since then, but some did find an issue with individual stores

They are good for things like lamps that aren't suitable for hue type bulbs or appliances you want remote access to the power sockets.. example I have one connected to my boys bed lamps on the bunk beds, that way i control the lights ability to turn on and off, I allow the lamps to be turned on at sunset and then I set a timer for 30 minutes past bedtime, so they can't be turned on again, past bedtime... and only the night light will be effective. I also have hue bulb in there main ceiling light, which is on a 15 minute timer, so if they turn it on 15 minutes later it turns off..

Ill be using a few for all my xmas lights this year, so I can

Use Alexa to control a power socket. Also has timer, schedule and can be controlled by an app independent of Alexa

Nice one. Was looking one. But 3 for £40 is a great deal.

Thanks for the response. Would I be right in saying , you could have any household appliance plugged into this and be able to remote control it?

Hey, no stupidty, I should have put a description in, as scaryprowler put, you can use Alexa (or Google Home) or the app to add smart control to anything on a plug, so I've bought mine for my under blanket heater, Christmas lights, slow cooker, etc that I can turn on or off when I'm not home or just too lazy to get up and turn on myself

Cheers op, just set one of these up in the last hour with the echo plus and decided i would need 2 or 3 more...this site has cost me a few quid this week!!

These plugs work with Alexa to manage your plugged in appliances through Voice Control.
You can assign a name to each Smart Plug and communicate with each plug by it's name when making a voice command.
You can also create a group for all your appliances and control (turn them on or off) all in one command.

So if you have a bunch of lights plugged in at the wall you can say "Alexa Lights On!" etc

Thanks,I almost bought one for £25 the other day and was trying to convince myself I would find a use for it, now I have 3

You set the timer on an app ?

Yep

Bought ta!

Don't forget quidco... it says 7% if this is a 'black friday deal' (?) and £2.50 bonus before midnight tonight.

Good spot, for this sort of money i'll happily jump ship from Wemo.

Will these also work if you had (for example) a 4 gang extension lead plugged into it?

Got one via Amazon/echo deal, now I've ordered another 3!! Great spot and great price! I even went through voucher codes for £5 Argos voucher over £25 spend.

i used them recently with Amazon and got my £10 voucher then, so no reason why this shouldn't come through as well!

cheers op!

Anyone tried these? I'm so tempted by Smart Plugs but not sure which are the best to get?

I've not got mine yet, but it looks like a similar set-up to Philips Hue, which I got this week. You set it up on the TP-Link Kasa app first and then authorise Google Home to connect to the Kasa app, then you see all available plugs and add them in to Home - tp-link.com/us/…tml

"Alexa, open the gate to the shark tank, - mwahahahaha".

Thanks Op, three ordered for collection tomorrow!

Had WeMo but the plugs are just too big and these seem more reliable IMO

* Must remeber £5 voucher tomorrow *remembe

I think it will likely be better quality and probably worth paying a little extra when dealing with power for piece of mind, but then you never know as even big brands can just rebrand a cheap product to make it appear better quality and charge extra for it when the innards could be the same

Brilliant deal, thank you. Reserved three for collection tomorrow morning to add to the one I bought from Maplin yesterday.

Really easy to set up and works spot on with our Echo Dot.
