    Just a feeling but I suspect smart plugs are a better option overall - smart plugs themselves are prone to failure over time and having all the electronics in the socket seems like a nuisance if that ever happens and much less flexible too (for moving around).
    Valid point but I don't like how bulky some of the smart plugs are. This is why I have opted for the sockets instead.

    Good way of saving in leccy bill, as I'm sure it doesn't need much itself to be online, but switches off all the stuff on standby plugged into the socket.
    More than you'd think, you'd need a handful of devices sitting on standby to break even on the energy used for the always-on Wifi. For energy efficient smart devices you want something like Zigbee, designed for the purpose.

    But for devices that are actually on, not just standby, sure.

    I have a couple of these in my kitchen. Worked flawlessly so far. The WiFi range is not the best, but I have an access point in the kitchen too, so work well. They were £10.99 new when I bought them. (edited)

    Have smart plugs , extensions.. time to try sockets. Thanks and congrats with the 1st deal post (edited)
    It's the best way. Certainly the nearest. I use mine to warm up my espresso machine before I get up on certain mornings. It's been worth it for that alone.
