Good price, but I still can't help thinking these should be more like £10 before I start to get a few.

When you say anywhere do you mean over 4G? (ie. Leaving the office)

No the plug logs into a central server, and you access via that server.

When at home you can access them over your wifi network.. when not connected to that (or away from home) you can control them when you have a signal (3g/4g). They are great and work well.. amazon reviews are far better than some of the other smart plugs.. ive been running one for one month so far.. no issues

I think he's asking if he'd need to VPN into his home network to control them.

I have two at the moment that I use both with Alexa when at home or via the app when not, no issues and really easy to set up.

Nope, use your phone over whatever web connection you're on.

The app has all sorts of options, timers, schedules, random between certain hours, etc.

1 per customer? I need 5

Cool, think that answers the question then. Can't help but wonder how that works without VPN or Port Forwarding. My concern would be that it's connecting to an external TP Link entity to forward your requests...

cENTRAL SERVER? So that when they decide your product is no longer wothwhile they turn off the server, or start charging for use .... wont hit for maybe three years, but then, beware.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks op. Ordered

I believe there's a "local" mode, where the device only works if you're in the same home / wifi network

Have you tried ordering 1 at a time? Make sure your basket is clear, and add to basket again.

Definitely only one per customer

I have a pair of these bought in Costco for about £41. Have a look for a YouTuber called Techmoan. He's done a good review. . They can be controlled by a Google Home or Amazon Echo or via the smartphone app. The main selling point over some other smart home devices is that they don't need any extra equipment other than a working wifi connection.

If you are in primenow area, you can grab another one there

Can you? It says "Currently Unavailable" for me...

Thanks, used wuntu app for 3 mobile £5 off so got this for £11.19.

Note that this doesn't natively support IFTTT

Apparently the HS110 is on PrimeDay in just under 50mins...

I already have a TP link but needed more wifi plug sockets.
I bought 2 Wasserstein plugs which were on hotukdeals a few days ago (also from amazon)

The Wasserstein ones work well with the iphone app and also work well with alexa.
Currently £16.99 each but there is a clickable £2 off voucher on the webpage if you buy 2.

They also have the advantage of being less bulky and they allow access to the plug switch.
The big bonus for me is that they have a usb socket on the side, so I can power my alexa dot from it.
I use two plugs for my two lounge lamps
"alexa lounge on" will now turn on and off the lamps.
(alexa lets you create groups so that you can turn on and off multiple sockets at once)

The apps for wasserstein and tplink are both easy to setup and use
Both allow you to turn the plug on and off via your smart phone
both allow you to set up timers on the plug sockets.
The TPlink has an "away mode" so if you are on holiday, you can click this and it will disable the timers. (Wasserstein does not have this feature but personally, I will be using it for lights and will be wanting lights to turn on at night while I am on holiday as a security measure)

if not on your on wifi then yes, your assumption is correct afaik; thus if tp link go bust or stop supporting these and I assume their corresponding servers then they too will stop working on 3g/4g connections.. that said though tp link are a big brand now and i doubt that will happen

"What's included in the package: 1x Wasserstein Smart Plug, Manual, Wasserstein 3 months Warranty: If you are unhappy with your product, we'll get it replaced or issue you a full refund, no questions, no charge, no kidding "

Weird - only a 3 month warranty from the manufacturer. (yes 12 months under sales of good but strange)

Don't forget the Google Assistant is on Android (Marshmallow+) and on iOS as an app which can use voice to trigger the plug when you link it to the TP-Link site. I have three and set to different lamps around the house and turn them on singularly or all at once.

I don't have iOS so no idea if they work with Home Kit.

Good price but not exceptional as I bought some this price a few weeks back. Work well at home or over 4G when away. You can also configure via IFTTT although isn't as simple as some. Overall I recommend.
