£9 extra for version with remote or £25 for the hub to control it.
Wonder if this can be paired with the Hue hub :/

Nope.... "Unfortunately, Hue doesn't support the TRÅDFRI Control Outlet device type. There's nothing we can do to change this since it's up to Philips developers to make changes in their Bridge so that it accepts our Control Outlets.

/Oscar IKEA TRÅDFRI Team"
Interesting. You can pair ikea tradfri smart bulbs and light controls to the hue hub, I would have thought it was possible to connect the smart plug also. Not officially of course. Irrespective Samsung Smartthings can control the bulbs and dimmers and will be able to pair the smart plug also, there's not a single zigbee or z wave it hasn't been able to pair

Hard to flick a light switch on when you're on holiday, and want to make it appear as though someone is at home. I have routines that open and close the curtains, turn lights on / off randomly and arm/disarm the security cameras.

Don't think so. Although SmartThings should be able to control it, as I suppose it is ZigBee.

A silly comparison at best. I’m willing to bet the people who are buying these smart home devices are also the people who are moaning they can’t get on the property ladder.

I have only one smart plug in my house, (plenty of smart bulbs, some motion sensors, contact sensors, water leak sensor, and smart thermostat etc). However, the use case for my smart plug is a life saver. I have a manual coffee machine, a gaggia classic which if left on just gets hotter and hotter, no auto off. The smart plug turns the machine on every morning before work, I'll make my coffee and if I haven't switched the machine off myself after an hour it'll switch itself off. Also, if I leave the house and I leave a certain radius, the machine will switch itself off. As another person mentioned, I can also see the status of the device using the app.

I can't see another use case for my needs as pertinent as that of my coffee machine, maybe a routine to restart my crappy virgin router once a month in the middle of the night to keep it working properly but still wouldnt mind picking a couple of ikea smart plugs for £9 each as I decide

The light switch in my garage is on the other end. Is pitch dark when you get in. My washer and tumble dryer are in the garage and are used often. As I already have an Echo device, purchased for other purposes, why should I not take advantage and have a smart light in the garage? It is true, I can ask an electrician to fit a switch, but will cost. I can use battery power lights too. But what is the point? My 4 year old boy cannot reach the light when he wakes up, as he is too short. So he wakes me up at 6 to put the light on in his room as he wants to play. With voice control, he can put the light on. My home alarm is connected to my mobile. Last year, while I was away, the alarm triggered twice without a reason. Instead of keeping my neighours awake, I was able to control it from abroad. Yes, I survived without smart devices. But this is a novelty, when people get the device, why should not use it at full capacity?

Also good for people with disabilities as they can use a remote or voice controlled. Having small children, going to the toilet at night sensors will turn the lights on.
Hearing a noise downstairs at night and able to turn the lights on in the whole house from one room (security benefits).

Times move on I assume you walk everywhere and don't drive or take the train or plane because you will become obese. Or if you do drive you still put the key in the door to open and lock because it's only obese people that will use the car fob.
Are there any smart plugs that work with hue does anyone know?
Or do I not need them to go through hue, do I have hue for bulbs and plugs just through my google home?
I want my christmas tree lights smart, fed up already of reaching behind the tree and it's only day 2!

I have one of these and plan on buying more. IKEA use the Zigbee protocol, which these power plugs also use, which is quite cool. These will work with Smartthings hub, which I have, and I understand they will work with Phillips hue (but I have not tested, I suggest googling it).
I currently have my xmas lights on a timer with these on. I have lights on based on timer, time of day and movement. So there is few use cases, while in and out of home. But dont expect to save any money, just make life a little nicer.

Yeah, lights switch works fine. Smart stuff works better.
You like fine, I like better. Horses for courses.

Seriously, your logic is rather flawed.

Yes, I've spent hundreds of pounds, but what I've got isn't the equivalent of "a light switch" - actually, I've got about 25 smart bulbs, three smart plugs and several home speakers.

Comparing an individual switch, is my set up better?
Yes, 100%. Now all of my lights are fully dimmable, which means I have better quality of light in my house all the time. Some lights come on with motion, which is nice for welcome lighting. Some change the hue of light too, which is nice for lighting different tasks.

But the power here isn't in comparing a single switch, it's about having a "smart home".

Last night I stopped watching TV, went and got a glass of water and went up to bed.
When I was in bed, I said "Alexa, bedtime mode" and Alexa:
Turned off the lounge lights, turned off the Christmas lights around the window, turned off both sets of Christmas tree lights.
Turned off the hallway lights, the Christmas lights on the stairs (which are plugged in in the office).
Turned off the kitchen lights.
Turned off one landing light, put the other on nighlight.
Turned off the outside Christmas lights (plugged in in guest bedroom)
Turned off the bedroom lights.
Turned the heating down.

I figure I'd need to turn off 12 of your "light switches" in 7 rooms of my house to achieve the same thing.
...and likely repeat in reverse in the morning. then again when you leave for work. Then again when you get home...
You think this is a good investment of your time to wander round and round your house turning things on and off over and over again. I don't. Horses for courses.

I picked one up on the weekend, on the plug it's rated at 13amp and 2900W - which is nice...

One negative with this plug is that you still need the Ikea "steering" device. So a remote, you can't just join it to the Ikea gateway.

I've got some under-cabinet lights in the kitchen linked to some GU10 bulbs, but pressing the button switches everything off. Alexa can differentiate between them, but they are all joined to the remote.

Slightly annoying, but definitely a first world problem!
Would this work to turn the router off ?

Check your router settings to see if you can set timers and a password. No cost and much better that a plug.

I use Sonoff for various applications around the house, have a look @ the TH10 it has a temp probe that is fully customisation, I have mine monitoring the temp in the kitchen and switching the kick heater on and off as appropriate.

Cheap as chips and very reliable, cost around a tenner with the probe iirc.

They're not on all the time...Indeed, Alexa makes sure that far fewer bulbs are burning at any given time than in our "dumb home" past

In this instance, the christmas lights are on because I'm a festive soul. The lounge, hallway, kitchen, landing and bedroom lights are all on because that's the path I take to get to bed from the lounge.

But in theory, most of them are easy enough to flick off on the way past actually.
And you're right, the Christmas ones are actually the most inconvenient and they're only temporary.

...but even in the rest of the year, I get the reassurance of knowing that I remembered to turn everything off, I can carry my drink and a pile of washing up to bed without having to faff about balancing things, and so on.

My overall impression of all things smart home is that it's a culmination of very small savings that add up to make it worthwhile.

£9 extra for version with remote or £25 for the hub to control it.


It’s widely adopted standard called Sigbee. You don’t have to buy Tradfri hub, almost any Zogbee Zigbee hub will do
