Can you give a practical example. I'm not hot with tech


Connect some Christmas lights to it and control it via Alexa or google. Or put it in a timer or set a scene. Eg ok google it’s Christmas (lights turn on and Slade comes on)

What's the WiFi part of this? Like an extender of existing signal?


It's a smart powerstrip, meaning you connect it to your WiFi network and it can be interacted with remotely

Turning it on and off, it's a smart extension?

Let's say for example you have a lamp plugged into it, you could use an app on your phone to turn it on from across the room. Or if you have Alexa/Google home then you could simply say something like "Alexa, turn on {device} "
And have it turned on, this also works for turning the device off.
Just think about what electronics you wish you had remote control of

If it's just one appliance you want to control, this brand also do single plugs

If been trying to assemble a set of use cases for these, but every time I try, the deal expires, so far I have.

1) programme lights to come on and off to hopefully put off burglars
2) programme an oil filled radiator to come on early in the morning in the kitchen, so the whole house doesn't need the central heating on
3) set up a timer for the child's xbox and TV, lights to go off at a certain time
4) turn off fans, air conditioning at a set time (electric blankets as well?)
5) control halloween and Christmas lights

Yes it works in the same way a normal signal extender does
only 3? I'd expect at least 6 for that kind of money even if it's controlled via App

Plug an electric blanket into it... game changer. You can then either set a timer, or half an hour before bedtime say "Alexa / Siri, warm up my bed!". Hey presto, toasty bed.
Heat, but isn't it cheaper to get a smart plug for £9.99 and a power strip for £10?
Is this controllable down to the individual socket?

Yes - if you don't need individual socket control.

Yes pretty good. You can get a 4 pack of smart switches for around £25 so similar price and more flexible, though a strip is cleaner.

That's what I use for my TV setup. One smart plug turns my telly, soundbar, back lights, roku and ir blaster on/off with one voice command. Sorted.

But wouldn't you still need remotes to control the features 9f these devices so why bother using a smart plug, I get the other scenarios like Christmas lights or turning kids devices off..
Autismmummyreviewer18/10/2020 05:40

It doesn't extend your wireless signal. It connects to your wireless network so that you can control the sockets remotely.
Seems good for remote (different location) on/off imo. Also for turning multiple devices on/off at the same time. But imo it is a sign of how lazy we are becoming as a society. Get up off your arse & turn it on/off. Although this may be really good for people who need help with mobility etc. Heat added. Thanks OP.

This is a game changer. Went out last night. Before the 30 min drive home I turned the blanket on. Happy days when I got home
Worth mentioning that you can control these using the Kasa mobile app even when you're away from home.

I often fall asleep at night watching TV and although I can set a sleep timer on my TV, it only goes into stand by mode.. And my surround sound stays on. I use this to make sure it all turns off fully at 1am every night.

When I want it on, I just say to Alexa 'turn telly on' and my TV and surround sound both turn on.
Edited by: "MetallicA" 18th Oct
can you control each individually? Eg. have outlet 1 on and outlets 2 & 3 off?

Agree with other comments, yes its cheaper to buy their nasty bulky plug in with a separate power strip, but this looks a lot neater. Heat added

i would not have one of these controlling a games console with set on/off time. that sounds like a recipe for disaster
Does it work with 5ghz? Off to Google
Does this take more electricity? I remember when I had a single plug one , I found it was like the switch was constantly on as it was connected to the WiFi etc? Any idea with this one ?

I have a 3000W rated smart plug for my iron. It's a reassurance being able to check from work if by chance I had left the iron on by mistake! A few more connected to table lamps around the house linked to Alexas in the rooms, because I cannot be arsed to press a switch!

I have mine next to my bed, connected to my Echo Show 5, mobile phone plug and electric blanket. When I'm out, I tell Alexa on another echo that I'm going out so it turns off the echo show next to my bed. At night, I ask it to warm the bed and I have my phone charger coming on an hour or so before I get up as I don't like charging all night. I used to have individual smart plugs, but not keen on too many WiFi signals next to my bed at night (I always have phone in flight mode when asleep).

I'd be worried about the iron being maliciously turned on (if that's possible). We have a rule that the iron must be unplugged when not in use, but that's with kids in the house.

Well you can see the plug's status on the app. I've set up a pretty decent firewall with an RPi for my network, it will take some effort to break in to my network.

Nah, my IR blaster is on the extension as well. That works on the broadlink app, which is alexa compatible.

So I can use alexa to control my roku via an ir blaster via alexa (native roku support is useless on alexa).

Viola, voice control for everything if I so desire. I generally just use the broadlink app to control stuff though, simple enough to tie in my TV, soundbar which doesn't support TV vume inputs, my roku, back light and ir blaster.

So I've replaced my "entertainment centre" above with

This app, or I can use voice control, but I generally just use that to turn everything off/on.

The blaster is a learning one, so you can point the original remotes and name the function, like I have above.

Long reply, sorry. One smart plug, one ir blaster, no more remotes. Sorted.

Never considered Harmony Elite?

I did. The blaster was about. ? 11? quid though. Looked at a universal remote, just don't need 95% of the buttons. I'm happy using my phone screen for everything nowadays. Harmony and other stuff is a thing of the past for me now. Especially as I can set timers and schedules via alexa.

True... my setup was £120 on prime day'19...but imo, money well spent.
