TP-Link HS110 Smart Wi-Fi Plug with Power Monitoring $22 Pickup @ PC Byte

140

TP-Link HS110 Smart Wi-Fi Plug is on sale at PC Byte for $22 pick up. I price matched at Officeworks for another 5% off at $20.90. I like these plugs because they track all the power usage, handy when you want to know how much power is being used which can't even be done by the Mi Plugs.

    I bought a couple of these a while ago as a gadget try but apart from turning on the Christmas lights I really don't have much use for them. What do people use them for?

    •  

      I use one with Home Assistant to let me or my wife know when the washing machine finishes a cycle so we can hang it out…

      Also use a few for automating lights off and on (as expected)

    •  

      I have it connected to my column heater with the setting turned on, so I can switch it on using this. Will be doing the same to my fan since it's not a smart fan.

      I connected it with my hubitat and smartthings sensor, whenever I am around my home office area, it switch the light on at night time

      Use mine with homebridge to kill power to my garage door opener when I'm sleeping or away.

      •  

        Use with room heater and fan to turn on or off at a set temperature at my location.

      Connected to a large server and allows the server to be started remotely while saving money on energy on what would otherwise be a lot of power usage for the server to be plugged in and switched off.

      Its also been useful for measuring power usage of anything.

    Yes.. Christmas lights are what I use one for.
    Other than that, the only thing I can think of using one for would be to schedule on and off the air stone or wave maker in my fish tank.

    Just a note that these are being discontinued in favour of the kp105/115 which are roughly the same price, can fit side-by-side on a standard GPO and doesn't have aubible coil whine (from the KP115s I've tested). I use these to control a variety of things that use standby power on peak/off peak. They can be used to control downlights if you're not willing to go the route of replacing them with smart ones.

      Can the KP run off a hidden network? I don't think the HS can.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    Relies on their stupid app. You can get HomeKit compatible smart plugs for less than this, sans power monitoring. I don't feel like Googling for HomeKit compatible power monitoring smart plugs right now.

    •  

      You don't need their app, I run this with homebridge which exposes it to HomeKit..

      •  

        I've tried homebridge and it is not as convenient as native homekit where you just scan the qr code on the plug itself and you're done.

    I have been eyeing these for a few days, just have been too lazy to go out there to pick up and didnt want to pay shipping.

    good call with price matching OW. Looks like its out of stock at PCByte. Fingers crossed another deal will come up.

    If you have a few of these, heres a nice app to check your usage. I run it off a linux box, but there is a windows app in there as well.
