I missed out on the Sainsburys £20 deal on this. But now Maplin have them reduced to £22.49 (already cheap) plus 4.4% quidco.

EDIT: the 10% is already taken off - my bad sorry!

Good price, have a couple of wemo plugs but imagine these will do exact same job.

students get another 5% (or 10% I forget) off

Can't see another 10% at checkout.

If you can find any in Sainsbury, they were reduced to £12-50p each in my local (bought 4 two weeks ago). I know there is unlikely to be much stock around now, but thought it worth mentioning, just in case you get lucky!

No 10% extra off for me either. total price is £22.49. Same as Amazon.
I think that the Sainsbury's ones were the ones with energy monitoring for £20 which are more expensive

What are people putting on the end of these.?
So far I have a fan and radio

i'm thinking of getting one to reboot my PC while I am out the house

Grear price, mine have worked really well. Haven't lost connection, needed rebooting, etc

No 10% off for me either, must be a specific to email address, or is there a code?

Wish these had IFTTT integration... only thing stopping me from buying them

Is that wise with the amount of current a desktop pc draws?

I've got them set up with:

various lamps (as I don't like the big bulky wifi bulbs, and have some chandelier style lamps with multiple bulbs)
my living room fire (its electric)
my wifi router (so I can reboot it remotely)
a dyson fan
my garden lights (so i can time them, but also activate them remotely)
xmas tree lights (now put away though)

It's great when you set them up with alexa, so you can just say alexa turn off the lamps or alexa turn on the fire

I scoured all the Sainsburys within a 100 miles (north east) and managed to get one at £20. Most stores said they went instantly - even at £20

No IFTTT integration, so it's a no go for me. I've got a D-Link that works great, but it's physically bigger than this, so after a smaller footprint.

I didn't think of that, should be the same as just turning it off at the switch? would only be very rare occasions

You say you've got your router connected to one of these,but if you tell it to switch off when you are out the house,how do you get it to turn back on again as it needs to use the router to be on in order for it to work.

Nice! I've used Maker before, but I wasn't aware that you could use web hooks with the TP-Link stuff. I'll have a look, cheers.

You can "toggle for X seconds" I believe. So it changes to an "off" state for 30 seconds or so, then back on.

​Could you not just use Team Viewer to do that via your mobile/ tablet or PC?

​What kettle turns on when it gets turned on at plug point?

I thought they all had switches unless you plan to flick the switch after you've used the kettle or something...

Had some other home plugs. These are by far and away the best I've used. Absolutely superb and the iOS app is really really nice

Plug kettle into TP link socket, press green button to turn TP Link switch off, Fill kettle at least half way, switch kettle on.

Set Schedule for Switch or turn it on remotely using Kasa App or by voice control (Alexa)

Max power on these is 3kw which is the exact power of my kettle, no issues since November for me.

When you set socket up, just name it Kettle because if you call it after your friends wife, it will get confusing if he finds out you are turning her on several times a day!

Always make sure you always leave water in the kettle.

These have a much better wifi reach than Wemo but unfortunately they fail on lack of IFTTT integration and missing the very important feature of switching off automatically after a set time from being manually turned on (like the Wemo can).

So basically, with IFTTT you can set it to turn off remotely say after 5 minutes, but as it stands, you can still turn it off after 5 minutes but you have to do it through your schedule.

swings and roundabouts for me.

same price on Amazon £22:49

No they are totally separate issues. These do not have IFTTT integration but also they do not have the ability to turn off automatically (outwith a preset schedule). The latter function is a built-in feature of Wemo app that does not exist in these (and has nothing to do with IFTTT). Also turning them off on a schedule is utterly useless for on-demand operation (e.g. turning a heater on on-demand for it to be turned off automatically after 10 minutes or turning a lamp on remotely at any time for it to then turn off by itself after a specified time).

Sorry should have explained that, it's not my main router it's my tp-link powerline going into a separate hub that feeds the av stuff in my loft (can't get wifi in my loft, and the powerlines often crash and need a reboot)

have it on good authority that an Alexa update for myappkettle.com is imminent too (for those who don't wanna flip the switch/use a smart plug

OP should edit the main price (£20.24) as they are £22.49 which isn't much of a saving.

very nice, but can't really justify spending £130 when this will do the same for less than £50

​Still waiting for that killer auto on feature then. That sounds like too much effort for me haha

I have the Ghoma one from B & Q which was £20.00. works well. Use it on the sky box in the bedroom as sky can't appear to make boxes that don't hum when on standby. As they take nearly 5 minutes to warm up fully comes in really handy.

does the Ghoma plug work with Alexa?
