I've got a bunch of plugs that do nothing for 11 months of the year too


I also used one of the energy monitoring ones to show the missus how much energy the kettle uses when she insists on brimming it for a cup of tea that she inevitably will leave to get cold and not finish drinking

There is a great community group on Facebook, they may know the answer
Can this also work like a timer plug, by setting off / on schedules?

Yes, some info from the product page
The TP-Link Kasa HS100 V2.1 Smart Plug lets you control any plug socket in your home remotely. Plug in your lamp, TV, or charger and easily sync up your smartphone or tablet to control your appliances.

Because you've got total control via the Kasa app, you can switch lights on when you're away from home, or double check you've switched off your hair straightners on your morning commute. You can also set schedules - get your coffee maker going before your alarm goes off, so you can enjoy an espresso first thing in the morning. Going away for a while? Set your lights to turn on and off each evening to make your home feel more secure, and enjoy your holiday with total peace of mind. You can also control your devices with your voice using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Switch on the lights on those dark winter mornings before you get downstairs, or check everything is switched off before you head to bed by adding it to your night-time routine.

Don't think that works, unless there is a special way to ask for this. But another way to do this is to set up a custom "routine" in the Alexa app. For example I have a heater in one of my plugs and when I say "Alexa, I'm cold" it turns it on, and then after 60 mins it turns it back off automatically. I have a lamp in another socket which I have on a timer too in response to a command. It's easy to set up a routine for this, the first step would be "wait 60 minutes" and the second step is "power off". You can throw in more steps, like to initially turn the plug on, and verbal feedback for when it's turned on and/or off.

Let me see I didn’t see a time
Function in routine settings last time in Alexa app create routine
It's a plug.

No it’s a smart plug.


This isn’t just any plug...(excited)
5 stars
What does everyone use these for? I've got smart lighting, smart heating, motion detectors, door sensors etc... But can't find a use for these. I have one that only gets used at Christmas so Alexa can turn the Christmas tree lights on and off...

Table or free-standing lamps - especially those with multiple or GU-size bulbs, coffee makers, restarting a frozen computer in my office and so on.

Evil genius . I like it.

To add to uses for these: hook up to a slow cooker and you can control when it goes on or off. Perfect for if/when reality is restored and you want to come home to a cooked meal
Heat added, Just what I needed, thanks,

Yeah, these are very versatile and easy to move around. Good quality too, not had any go bad yet. The biggest problem is devices with soft-switches (eg not mechanical) that default to off when power is restored so you can only use these for turning some items off not on again later.
Does it show the power consumption?
Also £14.99 Prime next day ✌🏾
Bought a few on the 3 for £29.99 offer they had earlier this year. Presumably they were version 1.
Has anyone figured out a way to link these to some kind of sensor yet? I have my outdoor lights on one of these plugs, would be good to have them motion activated, like a security light. The two smart setups I have in my house are HUE and these (plugs and cameras).

I use a Smarthings hub. You can program rules like this into it. I have cheap Xiaomi motion sensors in all rooms that switch the lights off when nobody is in the room. You can also set it up to create alerts like an alarm....

Great I think I done it I didn’t see the time setting so

I have a dryer

I have set a routine

“Alexa switch on dryer “



Power on dryer

Wait 4 hours

Turn off dryer


Hopefully it works
Any idea how long the Spotify codes last for once you've gotten one?

I have 3 of these. One is behind the fish tank and is for the fish tank light, it's set to turn on at sunset and off at midnight, also switches by voice from echo dot. Saves me crawling under fish tank on my knees every time I want to turn the light on. Another turns on my amplifier via voice command from the attached echo dot. The third one turns on a table lamp in my living room at sunset, this one is for security so the house looks occupied when I'm out.

The only really useful one is the fish tank to be honest.
No Apple home support, and being pretty bulky the only downsides.
Very reliable and decent app. Timers for scheduling off and on.
Seem very solid very well made.

I've moved over to Ikea ones for Apple support. TPLink said they would do Apple support, then renaged on it. Shame.
£15 for 6 months Spotify Premium, hit from me. Will sell the plug on lol.
Isn't the tapo smart plug the updated version of this for £5 cheaper
I use both Tapo & Tp model and can't fault them.
The tapo is smaller so plug not blocking the one next to it on a 4 way block.
I have these - really good and reliable - have never gone wrong.

You can do timers with Kasa app , I have it setup to turn on and off on schedule on Kasa app rather than via Alex

You can do it all with 'home assistant'.
I have a couple of PIRs in the back garden that switch on my wall lights when they pick up up motion at nighttime only, then send me a picture from all my cameras to my phone (using telegram).
All I say is make sure you get a decent PIR for outside, like the one from pyronix otherwise you'll get loads of false alarms when the sun hits the PIR.
