This has made me think twice, been looking at smart sockets for a while. And more or less settled on TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug HS100. mmmm which way to go?

shame it's isn't bayonet

for main lights this kit is what you need. can dim also


tp link for lamps, heater, kettle etc.

best get both.

Probably worth pointing out that if you use the adapters to make them bayonet it won't fit in the ceiling socket while the bit that holds a shade on is in place.

depends on the shade,half mine have the adapter.

The IKEA adapters are the shortest I've tried. You can also pick up a ikea.com/gb/…42/ for £3 and convert the holder to E27. The best bulbs all come in E27 so it's worth doing.

I got an adapter from eBay and it works in my outside bulb

But it is true, adapters are practical but limit the number of shades or enclosures that will allow for "longer" bulbs. Best as said above is to change the bulb holder to e27 if at all possible. Bayonet type is mostly in the uk. Outside the uk the norm is Edison Screw.

I've got Philips Hue for my lights and have a HS100 from TP-Link for a dehumidifier I have. I plan on keeping with TP-Link now for their smart plugs and Philips for their bulbs. Both work natively with the Echo so I never really have to actually delve into the apps for each platform.

There seems little or no stock of the TP link HS 100/110 products in the UK everywhere i look says waiting for stock even the older model. I have several on order but stock won't be available until mid feb.

if you don't mind me asking where did you get the TP link plug from ? I can't seem to find any store that sells them only ebay and i'm really averse to buying tech items from them.

I only have E27 sockets in our kitchen lights and I hate them.
They cause me loads of problems with poor connections.
I've never had a problem with bayonet sockets.

I assume these are the standard and not the ambiance bulbs (still a good price though so voted hot)

I found mine reduced in Sainsburys Brentwood about a fortnight ago. £20 for the plug. I haven't looked since though.

My only concern is plugging in more adpators using power, turning on lights at night with open curtains if you're out, does this not shout "hey, my house is empty?"

Very tempted all my downstair lights are SES or some weird Spot light bulb that cost £9 each? This means I can only use them upstairs.

Still a very good deal op.

Can anyone tell me if this one will communicate to the Echo please? I know some do and some don't ? Think the round ones don't - but as this is a square one it may?

Both V1 and V2 work with Alexa. This is the V2 hub.

V2 works fine with Echo

Thats one of the main advantages of smart bulbs, if you have left your lights on with the curtains open or programmed your lights to come on whilst your curtains are open you can remotely turn them off anywhere in the world that your smart phone can get internet connection. So if your in Sainsburys or if your in Spain, fire up the app and turn off those lights

I thought i'd found a good deal with the sainsbury offer afew weeks ago but they when checking my order a day later it said the item wasn't in stock so cancelled everything.

Might be worth checking in store as they may have one or two plugs lying around. I thinkg TP-Link are working on a new line of smart home products (including light bulbs) which will hopefully result in a replenishment of stock soon.

can anyone tell me what if any are the major differences between the v1 and v2 please?

Thank you for your kind response, some good advice. I like that idea plus I never thought about teenage kids leaving lights on so worth the upgrade. Probably best to install in 2 bedrooms for my house.

can you still use your original light switches for the lights or just the app. as my parents pick kids up from school and clubs etc and go back to mine so how would they turn the lights on. also in kids bedroom how would it work for example.

Yes you can. You'd need to click them off and on again though as they'd already be on.

One major difference for me is that V2 support Apple HomeKit, so you can have Siri turn your lights on and off too

Nice - worked for the light strip, extension strip and and extra bulb also!

The TP-Link HS110 is around £35 and the HS100 is around £25. The HS110 model can record how much energy the device connected to it uses. Probably not worth the extra £10 for it, but it's the only model of the smart plug that appears to be in stock anywhere. I got mine from Argos before Christmas and I see they still have the HS110 in stock just now.

Even better for the teenagers, program the lights to come on in the morning to wake them up instead of the usual 5pm teenagers like to roll out of bed
