    After tremendous luck buying one of the cheapest wifi plugs on eBay, finding it to work and function flawlessly, I'm exciting about this.

    Don't think I need it, but why not

  •  

    so that's why they're clearing medion for this much smaller version with USB

    does this have power consumption monitoring like the medion ?

      Oh so the medion does actually have power consumption monitoring. I thought I saw that at one stage but thought it was standard.

      I got 3 for $10 dollarydoo's the other day. They are chunky. Thinking I might need to get one of those 30cm power extension cords so I can fit these together.

    I've been grabbing the $10 older Aldi ones which are working well but the smaller form factory would be nice

    Was just eyeing the power board off and wondering if it can be Tasmota'd using Tuya-Convert (v1 or v2). They are Tuya based, so probably. Since discovering home-assistant I am all consumed trying to find compatible, cloud free devices. It's like a disease…. The smart Wi-fi plugs are less appealing after the recent Brilliant Smart Plug deals from Bunnings and Shopping Square.

      IMO the disease is having devices in your home sending data to others' servers and having devices depend upon proprietary apps that may be abandoned at any moment. What you're doing is more like exercise, trying to keep cardiovascular disease away.

        That is a real risk.
        I just bought a Unifi Security Gateway ($160 delivered) and plan on locking my IoT devices onto their own VLAN and blocking them from accessing the internet (when not absolutely required for operation).

        Good step by step tutorial:

          I plan on doing something similar, but just with a raspberry pi and a USB wifi dongle :D

    •  

      Yeah I got 3 of the square medion one's then found out about home-assistant. Wondering if I can flash them or not. Just got a raspberry pi 3 B for $20 bucks, so could looking at installing HA on that when I get my internet connected (just moved)

    Can these be controlled outside your home network?

      Is this a serious comment?

        Is this a serious answer?

    • +2 votes

      Yes, using the physical button.

    • +2 votes

      Yes, the (Tuya-based) app allow you to use them anywhere. That is the problem actually, as the app and device both need to talk to the server (in China ?) in order for them to work together.

        as the app and device both need to talk to the server (in China ?) in order for them to work together.

        So there's a little guy in China busily turning these on and off.

          I dont believe there is a height restriction… but sure..

    •  

      Ofcourse they are connected to the a chinese server, so controlled by a little chinese man called Tuya turning on and off for you when you ask him to

    Must say, I just bought these "Jinvoo" plugs from Amazon, 2 for $26. They are just rebranded Tuya devices so work with Smart Life app. Smart Life app is used by over a million people (1 downloaded app = 1 person?) so its got great app support and you're going to get updates. It doesn't have USB, but for a smart plug, I'm imagining you are not going to be interactive with it physically so why do you need USB? Must say, I'm very impressed.

    Has anyone had any issues with the Bauhn Smart Wifi Plug? Considering getting one but not sure…

    • +3 votes

      I have 9 of them now all flashed with tasmota

      •  

        How do they stack up? i didnt realise that these could be flashed.

        Do you have any links i could look at?

        cheers

          tuya convert 2, check it out on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_IZEa9JcC8

          No issues with them yet, power monitoring works good

          •  

            @asa79: sweet. I will try the new script on my last lot of Aldi smart lights to see if i can get them to work :)

            cheers.

          •  

            @asa79: Are you saying the Bauhn Smart Wifi Plug has power monitoring? That is what I am most interested in but at top of the thread c1ockwork said it did not? Thanks.

            •  

              @Endersx74: the previous model currently $9.99 at most aldi's

              •  

                @asa79: Thanks asa79. I got 3 of them when they were $20 each and two make a screeching sound (electronics) when been used. One of the noisy ones is in the shed for pool pump so ok but need to try and get the other one replaced. I went back to aldi near me over the months but they have never had any more. Was hoping these new ones would be better quality and also have the power monitoring. PS I think the noisy ones were from a batch from previous year … 😭

                •  

                  @Endersx74: Take back the noisy ones

                  •  

                    @asa79: I tried but was told as they don't have any stock better to go through supplier direct. This was months ago. Such a hassle to get it done it has stayed on the to do list dope. They did say could get money back but really just wanted a smart plug with power monitoring that does not cost a fortune Linke the HS110 so thought would try though the supplier. Might be that eastern states had more stock till now. WA seemed to have Nada.

          •  

            @asa79: Hi asa79. I am keen to do this too. I got confused with the Youtube video you linked, but then found this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyUyewiKpRA
            Is this what you did to convert all your Bauhn Smart Wifi Plugs?

            Also how are you now controlling them, eg through a Raspberry PI or something else? I'm really keen for some advice on this.

            Thanks in anticipation.

            •  

              @d123: Yep, tuya-convert via a raspberry Pi 3

              I run a MQTT Server for them to communicate with Home Assistant. I only really use them for power monitoring, not for turning on and off. Only one I have for that is the 3D Printer which Octoprint has a tasmota plug-in that turns on and off the printer when you finished printing etc

              •  

                @asa79: Thanks asa79 for your reply. Say did you use the method in the video I posted above, or some other method? I am really after a good tutorial on how to do it.

                •  

                  @d123: the one in the video

  •  

    No surge protection on the powerboard, thats a little slack

  •  

    All the links for the 30th of Oct special buys are dead.
    WTF did they do?

      That is normal for the aldi website as it only shows up coming ones
