Not sure how long the sale will run, but good price for this plug (usually retails at around $29)
Does it have scheduled on/off? Or just remote on/off?
have the same one, love it. unlike xiaomiplug, this ones doesnt have any internet problem, works everytime when you click the switch in the app, and instant.
Looks like Amazon have price matched.
For those that have these, how many do you own/use?
This or below?
TP-Link Tapo Mini Smart Wi-Fi Socket - Voice Control, Remote Control, Schedule, Timer, Away Mode, Safe, Alexa, Google Assistant (Tapo P100(1-Pack)) https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08SJ7MLRR/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_g...
For another $7.96 you get Energy Monitoring with KP115. But if that is of no use, this one is better
Check max load. I think the kasa are rated higher
I don't have the energy savers but six of the others. Out of all my Smart stuff, these have never let me down. The last one I bought I plugged the kettle in it. Last thing at night I fill with water, make sure the plug is off and the kettle switch on. In the morning, the wife gets up, says to Google, "turn on kettle". when she gets down the kettle is ready and she pours hot water in her cup with tea bag in it.
yes, love this too. It just works, no messing about. Easy to reconfigure if swapping SSID, even keeps the previous settings. Recognised by Google Home app, so can invite other household members to use.
Will it tell me when my washing machine is finished via Google Home?
Your washing machine itself needs to be smart to send data to Google Home
All the smart plug does is turn the power on or off, it can't report to you the status of the device that is plugged into it.
(Though it does have real time energy monitoring I'm not sure if the app will send you an alert when the energy usage drops underneath a certain threshold.)
Yeah, knowing when it's not drawing power with an alert to Google home is what I'm after
It is possible, but the app won’t do it. You need something else polling the plug to tell you that. Also it may depend on washing machine just how easy it is to tell when it is finished vs just a pause it the cycle, but works perfectly for mine.
I have C# code which can run on a PC, find the plug and tell you when washing finishes. If there is interest then I can clean it up a little and put it up on GitHub.
Always share it around mate.
I set this up with an Arlec Energy Monitoring smart plug.
As most of my smart devices are Brilliant Smart I just linked the plug via the Brilliant app rather than the Grid Connect app. When I clicked into the device via Brilliant app the landing page for the device itself was the same as if I linked it via Grid Connect. That landing page allowed me to set alerts based on energy use. So I set it up to alert when power draw fell to zero.
It worked perfectly, until it didn't anymore. After a year or so it seemed to sense low power draw continuously that dropped to zero about every 5 minutes. Needless to say after a week of five minute alerts then plug was pulled.
Based on the comments by mps41 it would seem the built in landing page for this plug does not allow this functionality. If you want an easy plug and play get an Arlec/Grid Connect plug and keep the receipt. If it dies like mine did just take it back. I'm sure it will have a year warranty or the like.
Can I use this to schedule my modem/router to switch off when I sleep, and turn on when I wake up?
You can use any smart plug to do that. A schedule is a schedule though, so you need to go to sleep at the same time each night or you need to 'turn' the plug off yourself when you go to sleep.
Is there any Smart Plug that helps with reviewing energy usage over a period. Got this KP115 and I note that it provides the current energy usage along with the period to date but not the details of usage over a period.
