      Nonsense - there's still some in Kalgoorlie!

      •  

        Why would someone pay $25 for something huge like this? Even the Xiaomi ones are huge.

        •  

          At least this one works

          The Chinese versions are rubbish

          This is an excellent price - alas none available in perth

        •  

          Mine from Xiaomi (or similar?) works fine for half the price (or thereabouts?) delivered (admittedly quite slowly :-).

          Nothing personal with the neg.

          Because the vendors, being australian retailers, have a vested interest in selling things that are complaint with electrical standards that are not likely to burn your house down.

          You import some junk from china and plug it in, that risk is soley on you, even your home insurance will be all 'sorry bro, burned your own house down, that's not something we cover'.

          @Twilight: that’s something heavily debated around here and there’s no proof that this is the case.

        •  

          @theguyrules:

          No proof? Call your insurance company and ask if you want proof. I'm not interested in debating it.

          Fairly warned, be thee, says I.

        •  

          @Twilight:
          Good, then we can both leave our opinions here without debating.

          @Jmark: Yeah, I also realised that's what the issue was.

    Thanks OP . Ordered one for click and collect tomorrow.

    Just a heads up, you can get the 2 pack energy monitoring version from kogan for $70 delivered via Shipster trial with a $20 off $100 code and a Referral link so $35 delivered each (just add a $5 item so total price is over $100)

    https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/2-pack-tp-link-hs110-wi-fi-smar...

    I would definitely go with the energy monitoring version

    Serious question… Can I use these with my Google home mini ?
    Of course, they would rather I buy the echo, and everything else amazon.
    However with google being open source etc, I am hoping I can install app on phone, and google home mini connects to phone app, turns smart plug on/off . Or maybe I can install apps on my google home mini itself ?
    Also, is this good for protecting my ps4,xbox,smart tv , from power surges etc .

    • +3 votes

      I’m using it with google home (not mini). Just need to register your device with tp link app, Kasa, and you’ll be alright.

      It took me entirely too long to figure out why on earth you'd want to be able to turn on and off your Google Home with this. I am not a smart man.

      • +1 vote

        I still haven't figure it out, can someone explain? Do you guys mean that you use your google home to control the plug so you can ask google to turn on/off things?

  • +3 votes

    The TP-Link Smart WiFi Plug lets you control your electronics anywhere in the world through your compatible smartphone or tablet. It can also let you schedule automatic on and off times for added convenience.

    sorry but can someone give examples of practical uses if you bought this product?

      I've got a heater blanket that I'd have it set off after an hour of it being on and I'm probably asleep. Could also turn it on remotely if you're in another room or not at home so that it's warm before you get to bed.

      Another good one is for the kettle. If you want to boil it first thing in the morning whilst still in bed or just too lazy to walk to the kitchen, you can turn it on remotely (depends on the kettle).

      • +1 vote

        I'm keen to know how it pressed the button to start my kettle hehe. sure its good to give it power, but my kettle button still needs pressing. Or are there smart kettles out there in this world?

        • +1 vote

          My kettle can be switched off at the oulet but still have the mechanical switch on the kettle itself on, allowing the smart plug to work. If it's just a regular button where there's no distinction between on/off (like a computer power button) then it wouldn't work.

        •  

          @BlazinPast:

          Most kettles I see are a mechanical button, needing to be pressed, before kettle starts.

          Of course stopping anything is easy, stop the power stops everything

      I use one for heating up the espresso machine before getting out of bed (20 minutes min to get to temp) - but granted, not many have such machines.

      My car charger operates 1 hour after sunrise until 1 hour before sunset to utilise solar power.
      I can turn on my babycam from another room if I forget and bubs is asleep
      My Treadmill and TV turn on (two outlets linked together) at the same time (TV switch isn't reachable from wall mount)
      I turned $5 LED strip lights into expensive homekit lights for $10

      (I use Xiaomi outlets, but same same)

      I have a smart plug (a Belkin Wemo one) and use it to control a fan I have at the back of my entertainment unit that I turn on when playing games on my HTPC so it doesn’t overheat. Works really well.

      •  

        So you blow air at the HTPC?

        •  

          Nope, have one of these cut into the back of the cabinet that’s hooked up to the Wemo. Exhausts the hot air from the back of the PC.

      I use it with an Amazon Echo Dot to voice activate the living room floor lamp on/off. It has a physical foot activated switch which has a short cable & is in an awkward location against the wall / couch — works a treat via voice instead.

    •  

      I use for floor lamp (mood lighting)

    •  

      Same for the two above regarding using it for a floor lamp. I have it set to turn on at sunset and turn off at 9:30pm. I can also turn it on/off without getting off the couch.

      There's also an away mode that randomises the schedule I believe.

      Being able to turn off my desk lamp night light just before I go to sleep without having to reach and get out of my bed is pretty awesome for me. I can imagine using this method more around the house but for now it's just my remote WiFi night light switch.

      Haven't played around with the schedule timer but I imagine that is also a good way to limit yourself and time the light to go off when you want to sleep or if you fall asleep.

      I have the following use cases (I also control with google home/mini):
      + turn on room heater before I get up.
      + turn on living room lamp at sunset and off at 10.30 (these switches have the advantage that when electricity goes out and comes back on again they will revert to their previous state unlike a smart bulb which will come on in the middle of the night and wake you up!)
      + turn on lamp for lizard enclosure (I've got one to monitor electricity here)
      + turn on phone charger one hour before wake to give phone a boost for the day without having to leave on overnight
      + turn on electric blanket ready for me to jump in to bed at night

    •  

      We have one on a light so if we're out later than expected we turn on the light so it looks like someone's home. Brother did the same but the sunset setting when he was overseas.

    Ya snooze ya lose. Guess it prevented me from an unnecessary purchase.

    Good Switch. Can be turned on and off remotely and you do not have to be on the same network. Can measure power usage. Great buy for the price. I use mine on a mining rig

    Picked mine up last week from this deal. It's very wide. If you have dual socket GPO you'll struggle to get access to the second socket. Is there such a thing as a very short extension cord?

    Set up was very easy. My lamp will now switch on at sunset :)

    •  

      Shouldn't some form of a double adapter do the job?

      •  

        Yeah but then I just lose access to the double adaptor second plug. Maybe a diamond like this would be better than a side by side double adaptor.

        •  

          Yeah thats the type I was thinking of as well

        Damn no officeworks near me has stock, will try get Harvey Norman to price match.

          @AG1304x:
          Went in to HN. No go for me. He wouldn’t do it because EB took the listing down. Even though I showed him the EB price on my phone. Oh well

  •  

    The price is a little bit higher than I got.

  •  

    OP - can you change title to "+$ for delivery", not quite clear (IMO)

    Missed the update, so if you could remove delivery from title?

    Thank you, OP.

          That's gold. The 110 is more expensive because it can report on energy usage. The 100 is on/off.
