Got it. Thank you.
How do these compare with the larger TP-Link plugs that use their Kasa app? They look a lot less bulky.

I've had two of the HS100s for a few years and they work well. The Kasa app is great for controlling lights because it can be set to stitch on at sunset, regardless of the time of year.

These don't support IFTTT, but the Kasa ones do. These are smaller. They have separate apps. That's about as much difference as I can see

Even better value if you’re after 2. Thanks
Apologies for the newbie question on these products - but in terms of quality/functionality can anyone tell me if there is much difference between this TP-Link one and the Nooie Smart Plug on HUKD today which are working out less than £6 each if you get the lightning deal?

So are you discussing state secrets or are you a career criminal to be so paranoid about them hearing you?
This is the problem with all these smart things: there are far too many different services and APIs so you end up with a different app to control each device. And this one is even more ridiculous because TP-Link already have a smart brand called “Kasa” so now they’re fragmenting their own smart ecosystem. I just don’t get it.

As much as I despise Apple as a company, I think what they’re doing with “smart” is exactly what we need: unifying all these things under a common API that will be open-source and hackable by DIY devs.

FYI Kasa has been reverse engineered so I can control these things using an open source system removing the need for any phone home apps. Nice and hackable.

Kasa also works with Smartthings. These plugs have been cheaper,and likely will be again before long. I’m sure it’s possible to set up a sunset routine on the Kasas, possibly with some help from IFTTT.

Pretty sure HS100 does NOT use Zigbee. I have a few and I’m almost certain they are wifi only.

The other guy who answered you is wrong: the Kasa plugs like HS100 do NOT support Zigbee (or z-wave for that matter). They are wifi only. Do not buy HS100 if you need Zigbee support. Just saving you the frustration of a refund!

You’re right, will edit my comment to avoid confusion. Still think he’d be better off sticking with Kasa, as this isn’t even an exceptional price.

No worries! Yeah I’m trying to understand the difference between Tapo and Kasa to be honest. I do like how small these are but I think Kasa also now does a micro plug don’t they?

Can you confirm that the Kasa and Tapo families of devices are compatible? I don't see the Tapo P100 on the list on the page you referred to. This text from TrustedReviews seems to indicate the opposite:

As this is a TP-Link product, you’d expect that it would work with the usual Kasa app. Sadly, this isn’t the case. Tapo is a product range that TP-Link got by buying another company, which means that it needs a completely different app, called Tapo.

OK, Thanks for explaining. (I updated my comment before reading your post, BTW!) As I've only just started to look for smart plugs, I think I'll go straight for devices with plugins for Open Source software, or ideally alternative firmware. Cheers.

On a lot of items, I'm happy to try generic brands, but I've (literally) had my fingers burned with smart plugs. I'm happy to leave these in for a two week holiday controlling lights etc - I'd worry about burning the house down with some of the no-name plugs.

But a) how is it doing this? There's no mic, and b) why allow it internet access? Mine works locally on my network, not externally. That's just network setup.
