Amazon are selling the Kasa HS100 Smart Plug by TP Link.

Kasa HS100 Smart Plug

Features

  • Compatibility – Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for Voice Control
  • No Hub Required – Works with any Wi-Fi router without the need for a separate hub
  • Remote Access – Control devices connected to the Smart Plug wherever you use the free Kasa app on your phone
  • Scheduling – Schedule the smart plug to automatically power electronics on and off as needed
  • Away Mode – Turns your devices on and off at different times to give the appearance that someone is home

What can you do with it?

  • Schedule a plug to come on automatially at set times on particular dates – e.g. put lights on when you’re on holiday or turn lights on for when you’re coming home.
  • Remote control via thet Kasa app to turn plugs on. Also works with Alexa and Google Assistant.
  • Away mode is like scheduling but with a bit more randomness, turning a plug on and off multiple times to simulate someone being at home. I didn’t really like this, as it turned on/off more than I would if I was actually home.
  • Use it to turn on your Christmas tree later in the year – great if the plug is hidden at the back.

Anything to note?

  • This version does’t include Energy Monitoring – that’s the HS110.

Is it a good deal?

Yes, although Argos sometimes sell this as a bundle of three which works out a little cheapear individually.
