come on, With the way Facebook and the like are playing up, I don't see as the Chinese are any more of a risk, And every Tom,Dick and Harry has already got most of my details, Bit late to start worrying about that now.

This the older one with No energy monitoring
Think this is going to be the normal price for these as the new version are £12.99.

Yes. you r average Joe is going to leap straight into that.
I'm pretty clued up and unless things have changed, it really isn't that straight forward.
Unless you care to show me a real simply step by step 'how to'?

I tried it, now I stick with the TP-link sockets.
They just work.

It's not the issue with the Chinese, it's a matter of budgets and branding. I think we can be confident that a big network equipment manufacturer like TP-Link has a greater budget for securing their devices than a no-name brand. What's more, given that there's a brand association they're more likely to focus on securing them due to the risk of reputational damage.

That's not to say that spending more gets you infallible security. The big players regularly leave vulnerabilities, and aren't always great at fixing them when they are identified. But I still fancy that the chances of having your home network exploited is lower with someone like TP-Link than a budget equivalent with a tiny budget and minimal time for security.

I got some and there are nice, took a while to connect, I think cause I had 5g interface but once worked it out, connected and fine, haven't got no nuclear bombs on my plugs so I never have problems with Chinese sever

No they are smart plugs which can be activated or deactivated via an app (manually or via custom schedule) or with a smart device (e.g. echo dot)

TP link are chinese.

there are fears over chinese access to home devices in the west as it all goes through their firewall and there is potential for backdoors, etc. see controversy over huawei, etc.

tbh they are welcome to know when my garage lights are switched on and off.

Huawei ban is due to Sino-amercia trade war, Google is simply doing what Trump says, politics. Who is really stealing our privacy? not Chinese but the Yanks
Got the triple pack, easy to install but if you reboot your router you have to go round and power cycle and reconnect to the WiFi network each time. Have some others and they reconnect no problem, it's a pita when some plugs are in hard to reach places

Hi,

EU are wary of all non EU suppliers (inc US) and they def don't play Trump's tune

ec.europa.eu/com…049

theregister.co.uk/201…en/

this is independent to the trade war.

whilst there is some paranoia about it, backdoors have been found in loads of china produced cameras, routers, IoT devices, etc. some normal. many not.

and then there's the state sponsored IP hacking which is incontrovertible.
These also work very well with Home Assistant. HA connects directly to the device (bypassing the Kasa cloud thing) so it's much more reliable.
