The problem with the UK 2 wire setup is that you need to allow a small amount of current to loop through the system when switch is off - so that the RF receiver hardware is still powered. I'm not sure if there is anything available because of this. Even if there was, a key limitation is that it would only work with dimmable bulbs. I personally don't like the idea of a bulb socket always having current go through it, even when off.You could go down the route of a wireless device fitted in the bulb socket (plenty on the market). I don't like these personally as the switch can override everything. To get round this you'd need to wire your light permanently on, and replace the switch with a battery operated RF switch.The only practical non-battery solution I've seen is something fitted where the lighting loop in the room starts (might be called a relay; can't remember). This requires getting to places that are difficult to access - such ceiling voids etc. You then replace your wall switch with a momentary push type. When I next need to pull up floorboards in my house I'll see if this is going to be easy enough to do!Note - I'm no expert and don't pretend to be, just passing on my findings.


Have you seen the guy making replacement light switches for the hue switches, they can fit over or replace the switch?

I was all over lightwaveRf when it first arrived until I needed a neutral I need some solutions for non standard Lamps having ornate multi-lamp halogen low voltage lamps in virtually every room.


But lightwave is the one system that doesn't require a neutral... Unfortunately it is also one-way and 433 MHz rather than the more reliable ZigBee and zwave systems (even WiFi is more reliable IMO). And quite expensive on a per switch basis.

The other option is to go with zwave dimmers/relays like aeon and... sorry can't remember the other brand. They are also quite expensive but you can fit them at the light fitting with permanent live and use the original switched live (hence wall switch) as a soft toggle. Great if you have a ton of bulbs connected in sequence as is common for GU10s in the kitchen.

Are there smart plugs that dont require a hub? Thanks


Yes the Sonoff plugs don't require a hub, and they're dirt cheap from overseas suppliers (less than £10 per outlet)
These are good when they work!!!

Having invested in these Energenie plugs x9 , purple more expensive feedback plugs x2, sensor x2, extension x1, main hub x1 they get bogged down especially the mobile app, when you click to turn on a lamp and next thing you know the app refreshes and you end up pressing the fan heater on instead grrr.

The best way is use the web interface to turn things on and off as it doesn't seem to suffer the lag. The quality is a bit of a mixed bag, one of my purple plugs emit a high electrical frequency sound which is very annoying, and the energenie remote extension build quaility feels cheap.

If only Xiaomi released their IOT with UK support and plugs I would have bought their version as the price is cheaper and quaility way better.

I'm dissapointed because there is no feedback in the plugs, which means that the hub fires the "on" command, but does not know if the plug has actually switched on. Think about pressing the remote control and the corresponding device does not work, you have to move the remote or press the button again. This means that frequently programmed actions do not turn on as planned. You return home to find your light NOT on, or your lamp does NOT turn off when you ask Alexa to do it. You need to upgrade to the more expensive plugs to get this feedback loop so the hub knows if the plug as actually switched on when the command is fired.


This, a million times.

I have 6 Energenie plugs, and 1 Hub. I frequently have issues in that I turn something on via the App / Alexa, and... well.... it just doesn't turn on. It remains off. It also does not confirm that it's on or not.

I also woke up a year ago to the downstairs fire turned on and it was boiling so must have been on for a long time. Not good at all.

Their support is DIRE. They make you jump through hoops, and they talk to you as though you are an idiot on the phone.

Spend slightly more and get working and higher quality products.
I've had loads of remote type stuff over the years and I find the Energenie remote control sockets to be very good, very responsive.

I then bought the hub as I was adding more automation but I returned it within days. It was very slow to act and the connection was a bit flaky. Thinking it was an issue with that particular hub, I exchanged it but the replacement was equally as bad.

Nowhere near the efficiency of other hubs, clearly you get what you pay for in my opinion.

But, seriously, got an Echo on Prime Day (I mean, why wouldn't you??) and so surprised at what it can do. We have Evohome and can now turn the temps in each room up/down by voice command. plus we are also edf energy customers so can send meter readings in through voice command. Just surreal, the possibilities are endless. The wife was very sniffy about me buying it but is now actively looking for a Philips Hue set up. Amazing...

You need the Hue bridge before you can use the single bulbs.


Yes, once you have the bridge it makes sense to use HUE, or you could use a different brand that doesnt need the bridge.. I mean what ever is right for you is fine, personally I am struggling to think of a real reason for the switches..

I have a few echos and just started to use the HUE system.. I can see myself replacing all the lights in the house with white hue bulbs and dimmers, and all the lamps with the RGB bulbs, Im going to put a motion sensor in the kitchen an have it control the lighting in there the GU10's are expensive though..

But the switches I cannot think of a reason for them.

Since the new gateway was installed, had no issues at all.



So out of 10 devices only one has never had to be reset in 3 years. I wouldn't class that as reliable.

Theyre laggy as hell, especially through IFTTT and the app is awful... says things are turned off when theyre on! Think the app is coded to instantly say off when u tap the device, rather than waiting to check with the switch (which they cant as theyre RF connected to the hub not wifi) emailed them and they confirmed that's how they work. Not trusting a heater with them after that and would recommend paying that bit more for we mo switches and no silly hub needed either.



If you want plugs that report back to the hub/app then you have to pay extra for the energy monitoring ones, which use different technology.

I agree that these plugs are not quite as reliable as I was hoping. The lag between using the MiHome app, IFTTT, or Alexa can be quite bad - normally about 4-5 seconds but occasionally up to about 10 seconds and sometimes not at all. We've resorted to using the remote control most of the time.

Ironically, of the 2 switches in use, the closest one to the hub is less reliable than one on the other side of the house!

For info, these probably can only measure (or deduce power consumption) linear power usage (where VxI is steady across the sine wave). Electronic devices with rectifiers etc will not be measured correctly. Any heating, refrigerating etc devices AND old incandescent bulbs should be pretty accurate. The mentioned 9W off a DAB radio is wrong as it is electronic. Some devices give silly readings (my induction hob on standy gave readings of ca.150W - bonkers). Look this up on the internet.
check your electricity bill to see how much 1kWh costs
on all your appliances the energy consumption is listed in watts or additionally a (euro)label
you really dont need to buy smart meters
ere is a handy guide
Should this start showing info as soon as its plugged in and the battery tab removed? I've even plugged our Dyson Vac into it no it's showing zero power usage (yes it is switched on!) ?
SFconvert

I doubt it is using 9w, that would be a surpassing amount of heat, think of how warm a 9w led bulb will get. I find these give a more accurate reading if you plug a lamp in, say a 40w bulb,(anything that's a constant draw) and then add your appliance you want to test into the circuit and measure take away 40w. It's likely less than 2w



The particular one I use I was able to test and yes it's not 100% accurate, but since the radio says it consumes 9W, the meter says it consumes 9W and I have tested the meter on other low wattage devices, including those I already have known power consumption values for, I'm happy to believe if it says 9W, it's going to be between 8.5 and 9.5W. If the consumption doesn't change from powered on or off, the accuracy of the meter isn't that important, it's that fact that's most important.

I don't honestly think accuracy is that important so long as it's less than 10% and it's more a case of getting a ball park figure than accuracy. In the case of the radio it does get warm and the power supply used to stay nice and warm, so I wouldn't at all be surprised if a lot of the waste energy was heat.

This means it burns a unit of electricity every 4.5 days or so, if it's not physically turned off at the socket, which considering it's also a clock radio would be a problem. Switching to a more efficient identical specification power supply means the consumption when it's not on, drops to 0W or so. That means over the space of the first year of ownership, the meter would recoup it's cost, but also the cost of the cheap power supply that was used.Perhaps more usefully, this unit can then be plugged into other devices and you can identify all those wasteful devices that you normally ignore. Interestingly enough my old meter showed that my 32" CRT television burnt less electricity in standby than the DAB radio, which wasn't obvious and my stereo was using enough electricity to run a small fan heater, even when not playing music.Of course it's entirely debatable whether knowing how much electricity is used is important or not, but for me it was but perhaps that's because I've got PV panels on the roof, and often it's the most surprising things that save you more than you'd think. I bought my original meter a good few years ago, so perhaps fewer devices are stupidly inefficient.mike


Thanks for the reply Mike. Interesting to hear that there are such devices that can use annoyingly high usage when in standby! When you say you switched to another power supply, do you mean you bought a different mains adapter for the radio and that fixed the problem? Cheers

I'll be using the plug in sockets to switch on and off monitoring devices that may need to be reset.

You can use them to switch lamps on and off in a room, for example I have some led strip lighting and lamps plugged in , in difficult to reach places, so I could use it to switch them on and off.

there are some compatible trv's which I believe can be used with the hub, good because you can set the temperaure for a particular room at different times, (like not heating living room at night, when you are in bed.
