    What do folk generally use these for? I have one and have our Espresso machine connected (on a timer and can turn on remotely as it takes 5-10 minutes to heat up), but can't think of what I'd use any more for, but just want to check I'm not missing out on any genious ideas!

      One use is to turn on your computer remotely by setting the “switch on computer when powered” setting in your bios. After you remotely activate the computer you can then use remote access software from your iPad to login. Handy when you’re at work or on holidays and want to access your PC. Also handy to plug your iron into as you can always check remotely to make sure you turned off the iron.

        Wake on LAN is also available for free for computers connected via Ethernet and properly configured.

          Yeah, I have wake on LAN capability anyway, but have never had a need to turn on my PC remotely before, all files synched with Onedrive. The iron gets put away as soon as I have used it, so no use for that either.

      I have a fan on one in the bedroom. Handy when already lying in bed and a bit warm to be able to just tell Google to turn on the fan without having to get up. Also part of a good night routine that turns on fan and plays internet radio on a sleep timer.

      I had planned to use the power monitoring on my washing machine with Home Assistant to work out when the load finished so it could alert me on my phone. Never got around to it though since got a new washer that has that function built in.

      Still wondering if I can find a use for it to tie in with my solar so when it gets cloudy and consumption exceeds output can switch off whatever it's connected to.

    There was a time when I was interested in what my total bedroom setup was drawing from the outlet at various stages of electronics being used and at various levels of usage.

    I have a big stand up pedestal fan from big w or Woolworths, a smaller desk fan from big w or Woolworths, a low to mid range pc with I think a 240 watt psu, 4k 60hz 40 inch pc monitor with max draw off around 60-100w maybe, 2 speaker and subwoofer pc sound setup i think with total rms of 80ish wattage, small ceramic fan heater for winter 1800-2000w, 2 port usb charger 5v 2a and 5v 1a, unplugged cheapest electric blanket from target or bigw.

    So yeah I wanted to know what my actual draw from the wall was as this was all daisy chained on two powerboards and I know the max limit on watts and amperage is something like 2400 watts and 10/15 amps so I was under the limit if I didn't turn on the heater with everything going on on a hectic full day but not sure how much exactly under and well yeah I don't want to burn my house down in the middle of the night when I'm sleeping and have my heater going while pc is doing updates and various other devices working.

    I may still get one or two as I'm curious how much my fridge also actually uses with its very sub optimal usage (door left open sometimes but housemates while cooking, or just be standing at the door indecisive as to what I am even doing there.. Yeah)

    If I got a third I might use it on something silly like watching the yearly power usage of my router or modem just for kicks or even are old but still kicking definitely not energy efficient top loading washing machine.

    I think for my household we are generally ok with our power usage we maintain about $170 - $230 for the quarterly electricity bill for about 4 people and some spare change but in winter when the heaters kick in and the hot water works overtime along with the kettle we get up to $820 easily for the winter quarter electric bill.

    But yeah my interest in monitoring my somewhat low energy pc setup has dwindled but it may come back again but to finish this wall of text off and prepare for possible snarky comments I have to say I don't think I have seen the HS110 and cheaper than this especially if you can get the free shipping somehow (over $39 for non prime subscribers).

    Have a great rest of the week everybody.

    Has anyone used any other good smart plug which cost < $20? $30 is steep if I need to get few of them.
