Price has been lowered to $10 (credit to PriceHipster). Bunnings must be clearing their remaining stock. Maybe a new model is coming?

It may pay to live in Tassie, currently showing as In Stock at: Kingston, Kings Medows, North Launceston and Devonport.

Looks to be out of stock or low stock in the few postcodes I checked, so your mileage may vary.

Low Stock in:

  • 3000 Collingwood, Northland

  • 4000 Newstead

I suggest you call ahead before making a trip to your local!

    Wow! I have been meaning to go grab them from officeworks for around 3 weeks now, after the last deal was posted for $15 each, just didnt have the time. Glad I was lazy, saved $5 a hit!

    Definitely going to go today and Price Match :D

    Woah!
    Brilliant.

    I use these with my LED Downlights.
    Work a charm with google home.

    The brilliant app allows for sunset/sunrise switching too!

    •  

      Is that safe? I've got LED downlights as well and this is the first time I've heard of anyone doing this.

      • +1 vote

        If they're standard plugin ones (even in the roof) they're fine. Just have your powerboard connected to this, then into your standard downlight powerpoint, and you're set.

        •  

          That's awesome, cheap way to make the downlights "smart". Mine is in the roofspace, but I'll need a number of these plugs as each light is connected to individual GPOs. Would this also mean that I'll need to keep the physical switch button on "on"?

          • +2 votes

            @cray: Correct - the traditional lightswitch stays on to power the GPO. Plug ONE smart wifi plug in per room, then connect all your downlights through that one with any old powerboard (and extension leads for distant lights).

            You could put a wifi plug on each individual GPO - but that's an expensive solution compared to a couple of leads and a powerboard!

            • +2 votes

              @Switchblade88: Thanks for that! Very handy, just would be slightly annoyed if/when the wifi is down and I need to climb up to the roof space and turn the switch on lol.

              •  

                @cray: Hmmm, didn't think about that…

                I wonder if there's a way to set the switch as normally on in the settings; then any blackout/wifi loss etc means it goes back to a dumb downlight again. Then you'd be set

            • +3 votes

              @Switchblade88: I'm pretty sure that's illegal to use powerboards and extension cords in the roof cavity.

              I would be worried about voiding of your insurance should there be a fire.

              •  

                @placard: It's illegal to install permanent cabling without a licence e.g. in walls to GPO points etc. But anything downstream of a standard powerpoint is deemed safe and thus there's no problems.

                That's one reason they're used for downlights, to make them user replaceable.

                • +1 vote

                  @Switchblade88: Ah k, I see…I do think though I'd be hesitant about installing anything like this in the roof where I couldn't see it regularly. If something started to degrade I wouldn't be aware.

        •  

          a newbie question.. if you have hooked up the lights this way could you still operate the light with the switch the traditional way. ie use as smart light or traditional light whenever I want

          •  

            @Archi: Not really - as soon as you turn off the switch your smart plug loses power, and therefore won't respond to wifi commands.

            Then you'd have to turn it back on and wait for the smart plug to reconnect before you'd be able to use it again.

            •  

              @Switchblade88: This is the downfall of my situation.

              However I only use them in spots of infrequent use - theatre room as an example

              Or we just scream out “HEY GOOGLE, TURN THIS LIGJT ON”

              •  

                @Owgasm: OK.. mods didn't like an eBay link as an example.

                Would you think a smart light switch would be more effective in this situation.

                It's a touch panel smart wifi light switch.

                • +2 votes

                  @Archi: Yeah absolutely. I actually bought $100 worth of china ones. Not realising the potential death threat they posed. So they’re still brand new in bag.

                  This was my only solution to retain 14W LED downlights. I had the aldi 9W ones but they were too dim.

      •  

        :) I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be safe! But it works for me! And my wife loves it!

  •  

    Not in stock anywhere near me ;/

  •  

    No stock anywhere near me

  •  

    Checked Maribyrnong, Port Melbourne, Brunswick, Altona and Sunshine. Only Altona has stock

  •  

    What area of Bunnings would one find this?
    (I previously just price matches office works

    In stock or low stock at various Gold Coast stores.

      Hahaha…oh dear!

      Sounds like lowest intelligence is just the beginning.

    •  

      Were you looking for these adaptors or something else? I was going to head down to Carseldine tonight to pick up some of these…

    • +1 vote

      Google for "Chopper Bunnings". You could thank me later. :-)

    •  

      Carseldine has been showing stock available for weeks, but the staff can't find the box! Didn't check at the service counter however. I ended up going to Officeworks and they price beat no questions asked.

      •  

        They had them well hidden at the Morayfield store (super high top shelf opposite the smart lights - totally different isle to the smart sockets). A workmate bought down the bay and they were just in a box down some random isle. lol

    Oh forgot to mention go to the Officeworks they beat the heat and save another $1 or so and easy to find

  •  

    I suspect Bunnings didn't like Brilliant dealing with Aldi. Can't blame Brilliant as Bunnings didn't seem to give them a good location or carry their other products.

    I wonder if Bunnings is going to release a similar device under their own brand.

      i thought aldi's version is medion at $20

      •  

        Aldi sold a range of Brilliant WiFi LED lights in the last couple of months.

      •  

        Aldi's Medion are now just under $10 if you can find stock. My Bribie Island store still has a few. They are big and square and totally block the next outlet however.

    •  

      As with Aldi, these were bought in as a promotional product. When they're gone, they're gone.
      Some stores show a negative stock level on Bunnings system!

  • +3 votes

    Good luck finding these, even the ones showing stock say they don't actually have stock, system is wrong.

  •  

    Guy at Bunnings told me they are going with these Arlec ones instead. Can’t find the single unit but they were $19 each from memory.

    Most stores don’t have them out on the floor. Usually in a box up on top of the shelf.

    My HS100 plugs have an audible noise when they're on, do these?

    • +1 vote

      My HS100 don't make a noise and neither does my one of these.

      If it is a really high pitched noise then may be it makes it and I can't hear it.

      •  

        my aldi medion 2018 makes high frequency whine

        bought another one this year (looks the same but different markings/words) , and it's fine

    •  

      I have the same problem with a HS110 even when the relay is off. This only started after a few months of use
      No issue with the Brilliant so far but miss the power monitoring.

  •  

    Thanks OP, I live just around the corner from Kingston Bunnings!

    PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

    At my local Sydney store (Smithfield).
    They’re not located on shelf with the smart/wifi bulb section with Phillips etc. nor were they with Arlec smart plugs

    They were located - Same aisle as the power boards and outlets.
    Located on the floor in boxes (mid aisle). With the box cut open on display.

    Good luck, if anyone wants some and for some reason would work out better for me to grab them. Let me know

    • +1 vote

      Also, I just bought a few and they scanned at $15 still. So either not updated or pricing error. Show them the website link and they’ll fix it

  •  

    These were bought in as a promotional product. So once sold out, unlikely to be restocked.
