Might be worth a look for those who want to add a remote controlled socket to Alexa.
This is the HS110 version which has the power monitoring as well.

1 per customer unfortunately.

Should also work with Google Home

Bargain, got 3 and love them! paid nearly £35 too. Considering the standard ones are £22-25 it's worth it to keep an eye on your energy usage on that appliance

Not sure whether to get the energy monitoring one at this price. Currently have the tv plugged into one and phone chargers etc into the other (for the timer function!).

Just looking around my house and the majority of electrical items i have require you to switch them on once they are plugged in, even phone chargers only draw power when a phone is attached. Therefore on things like the tv i can only see these as being a way of switching from fully off to standby which whilst not being a bad thing seems an expensive way of flicking a switch.
Before i get berated by the usual arguments i do have 2 Alexa dots and Hue lighting so i am not adverse to spending money to avoid flicking a switch but i just cant really justify these, however i would love someone to convince me otherwise - credit card ready and waiting :-)

Heat for the saving by the way

We have them for lamps. Very useful for those sort of things. Also everyone should have one for the Christmas tree lights alone as it saves doing the Christmas tree limbo every year to try and turn the lights on.

Perfect for turning lamps on, nas drive, decking lights.
Edited by: "jaddy" 17th Apr

I've got 2 for the table lamps in the lounge/dinner and 1 for the display cabinet in the dining/lounge room, all connected to the echo dot and they work perfect. When I come in to the rooms at night I tell echo to turn on all with 1 command and again when I leave to turn all 3 off again with 1 command. It saves me going to 3 locations to turn these things on and off and I got a spare one for the Christmas tree lights as well. Great cheap bit of kit to make some of your house automatic. It's great to walk into the room and tell echo to turn all these things on with 1 command. Not for everyone but for me it works. Hot Hot Hot.

Kinda what i thought then, great for turning on individual lights which i do using hue. Still might grab one though as you never know what uses i may find and Christmas isnt that far away

Just thought of a use, when it gets hot i have a large fan in the corner of the bedroom so with one of these i can switch it on or off without getting out of bed. Sold

I have one of those big turbo fans in the living room, pointing out of the window to expel hot air. It's strong enough to create a breeze through most of the flat. I could use Alexa to turn it on as soon as I wake up to start cooling the place down (rather than having to walk through a wall of hot air) - thanks for the idea.

That's generally true but phone chargers do draw power in standby with nothing attached. It has dropped a lot in recent times (less than 0.1W) and is virtually unnoticeable but they do draw a small current, though as you say, not enough to warrant plugging into a smart plug.

I dont have the energy ones but as remote power plugs these are the best on the market at the price. Outstanding pieces of kit that work with Alexa as well.

These smart plugs are a great bit of kit, far superior to the 'Orvibo b25, smart plug' which i first purchased, and returned for a refund, due to a very poor app'

Purchase these, and return the others to Amazon for a refund.

Thanks this is a good price. I already have two basic (without power usage) for those plugs you turn off at night (TVs etc). I will use this for an electric oil heater. ideal for those plugs you cannot reach.

btw it should be obvious BUT this does not switch on a device with a switch on it. it switches on the power supply to a socket, so it won't switch your kettle on or put a teabag in your cup either. lol

I use mine for sockets which are hard to reach where you want power off overnight for safety. this includes TV which firebrigade says should be switched off standby. yes you need to switch tv on using remote but for me it's better. as for lights I use LIFX so no point for those. yes, xmas lights is an idea

I have one of these which I got for free when I bought some powerline adapters.

Works a treat for switching on my espresso machine to preheat in the morning....

These look like just the sort of thing I don't really need but cannot be without.

Heat, thanks.

Alexa, turn on my electric blanket....

My tv switches on automatically when I turn the plug on. Not sure whether that's a good thing or not!

I wasn't aware that you should switch tv off standby overnight.

This plug doesn't have native IFTTT support, but there's a hack to interface it with IFTTT yourself.

I'm thinking of using this plug with a mobile phone charger, with IFTTT to turn off the plug when the phone's charge reaches 100% or >90%, so as not to over-stress the battery overnight.

Nothing wrong with been over cautious but TV's are one the lowest causes of electrical fires now
In fact most TV fires are caused by it been set on fire, doesn't need to be plugged in for that
Any electrical item poses a fire risk even this smart plug

​I tend to put the plug on timer for about 2/3 hours when charging my phone overnight. So it automatically switches off after the phone is >90% charged.

IFFTT goes whoosh over my head!

Cheers, went for one power saving and one regular.

Prime now has £10 off £40 and let's you order 2. I just paid £38.98 for 2 plugs coming tomorrow.

​That is good but is there a way to get an IFTTT notification when one of these are turned on or off? this is the function that I am looking for and is lacking as far as I can see.
