  • Worth noting:

    Echo Dot 2nd Gen
    TP Link HS100 Smart Plug (No energy monitoring) ~$29 at Officeworks
    TP Link LB100 Bulb ~$20-$40 on staticice (shipping may vary)

    So this seems an ok deal!

    note that the plug is a disaster for double powerpoints…you'll lose access the 2nd outlet using these.

    • What's the sorcery behind that?

      • It's like using a big wall wart, it obstructs the other socket.

        • yeah this lol…i ended up selling my 4 plugs and going with the simple Genio Sockets. "Brilliant" from Bunnings & Officeworks work fine as well…they look like rebranded Genio's which are probably a rebrand of something else.

          • @ADGRM: You're correct — These are all "Tuya" devices. I'll lift the description from here: https://github.com/ct-Open-Source/tuya-convert

            A Chinese company named Tuya offers a free-to-brand turnkey smart home solution to anyone. Using their offer is dead-simple, since everything can be done by clicking through the Tuya web page, from choosing your pre-designed products or pre-programmed wifi-modules (mostly ESP8266) to building your own app. In the end, this has resulted in as they claim over 11 000 devices 'made' by over 10 000 vendors using Tuyas firmware and cloud services.

            • @Dislexsick: thanks for the confirmation mate! do you know if they all work under the same app? i've been meaning to try the Brilliants but would've preferred to use 1 app if i could

              • @ADGRM: @ADGRM Sorry, only just saw this. Essentially yes — The "Tuya Smart" app should support them, or in theory use any of them for other brands BUT when doing that the other brand, if they haven't released a product wont show in the app for setup.

                e.g. Mirabella Genio have an IR Blaster, but it might not show the option to set that up in the brilliant app, as I'm not sure if they have an IR blaster in their range. Setup of almost all lights and switches (wall plugs) should be fine in theory though.

                Other option is flashing them with "Tasmota" which is open source alternative firmware, and using that to connect them to Home Assistant or similar. (CAUTION: Large amounts of work and/or technical knowledge needed to do that very well, but end result can be FAR above the current offering, and also not dependent on "their cloud")

    • That shits me no end. Inexcusable design flaw imo.

  • I got a few of these last time. The echo dot v2 are quite good if you're running them off a powered speaker or don't want any sort of music off them as they are really "tinny" in sound. (V3 much much better).

    And you can't beat the price of them in this deal.

  • It says $99 on JbHiFi.

  • Just picked up two packs (different JB shops 100m apart). I plan to use the echoes for multi-room Spotify (so won't be using the internal speakers at all - aux out to an old Bose speaker dock and the other into my amplifier).

    Was going to jump on the two for $79 deal from Amazon for the 3rd gen echo devices but for $20 more I now have two smart lights and two (bulky) smart powerpoints…

  • surely the day is soon coming where these kind of things are given away just to get into our homes

    • Yep my echo dot talks when I don't even say anything.
      My 85yr old mum has full on convo's with her google home because she is "polite" it even calls her by her first name! I go there to see her and go WTF!
      Goodnight Jane" how are today Jane?,"yes I care about you Jane"

    • It has already been that day. I haven't paid for either of the Google home minis I have in my house. One was free with a Telstra deal. The other for having a Spotify family account.

  • shouldn't be too difficult for Amazon to stock their 3rd gen $39 delivered around 11/11
