  18. Initially I had some teething problems as it would not work with the Amazon Voice Service, Alexa which I have on a number of Amazon Echo devices. I received some great support via the TP link email helpdesk, and they’ve tweaked things their end and now everything works seamlessly – Alexa included. This means I can turn plugs on and off, by saying “Alexa, turn off” to my Amazon Echo devices.

This means I can turn plugs on and off, by saying “Alexa, turn off” to my Amazon Echo devices.

  20. A product based on false advertising always gets up my nose. I bought this after reading this part of the extended description “The Smart Plug now works directly with Amazon Alexa” because I ONLY want local Amazon Echo control and not Internet connectivity for security reasons. So Imagine my surprise when it arrives and at the bottom of the quick start guide it tells me to go to this URL to learn how to set it up with Amazon Echo: […] That URL states that you need to sign up for a TP-Link Kasa account, the Kasa app and the Kasa skill to make it work, with a second URL on how to create a Kasa account […] That’s not my definition of “works directly”!!!Furthermore, on downloading Kasa for iPad (by the way, the TP-Link articles don’t include links to the app and it doesn’t appear in the App Store when searching on an iPad), there is a link for Terms & Conditions and one for Privacy. Within these legal docs, I discovered that (a) TP-Link provide your personal details to third parties so that customers can be advertised to and (b) they do not guarantee that they can keep your personal details such as email, address, credit card info secure and the final nail in the coffin (c) they do not guarantee the continued service that makes Kasa and connected devices work! What? So, if the TP-Link marketing team decide to abandon the product range, they can just turn the whole thing off? That may sound unlikely but believe me, I’ve been on the receiving end of such product strategies. Signing up to such T&Cs may be acceptable for a free service but not for a paid product. I did try getting the Echo to directly recognise the switch after putting it in discoverable mode to no avail. This implies that the Echo takes your voice command, passes it to the TP-Link skill which must push it to TP-Link in the cloud before finally coming back down to your house to control the switch. That is a security nightmare waiting to happen and not one I am interested being the Guinea Pig of.So, if you’re reading this review as a potential customer, you’ll not be surprised to learn that I returned the unit straight away and will try the Wemo switch from Belkin instead. If TP-Link is reading, please take note. You should provide a way for local use case only and not force customers to agree to your ridiculous contracts or force the use of Internet control. Please also correct the false advertising on your Amazon listing.

  21. Great Smart Plugs, TP-Link be aware I bought these over other brands purely because your Alexa integration works better than anyone else’s I can find in the UK.Really easy to set up, even easier to then get working with Amazon Echo. The app is more developed than some of the other IoT control apps I have seen, the devices themselves are smaller and neater than even Hive’s smart plug. All in all a great job.One request….please please please can you work do develop the same technology into a UK market Light Switch, single and double gang options. Make these and I’ll buy 10 ! nobody is really offering a viable alexa compatible option for the UK market at the moment.

    Bought this to make sure our dog didn’t eat up the sofa, the main reason I bought this one was due to how easy it is to set up. Pretty simple as long as you follow the instructions. My only disappointment was that there is no speaker so we couldn’t tell the dog to stop if he was doing something he shouldn’t. But gives a very clear picture and night vision works great.

  26. Perfect, just what I wanted to link up with Alexa to control a lamp, easy to use and set up, perhaps a little thicker than I wanted but that is a very minor point, easy to use on pretty much anything you can plug in. I have tried it with a fan, a electric fire and various lights and all work well. Just plug it in, set up with WI-Fi, pair with Alexa and you are good to go.

  27. This product works well. I intended to use it to make a lamp come on when it got dark and it does just that with no issues.The app that is used to controll it is called kasa, and it makes it very easy to connect to your wifi. When you have the app open and try to turn the plug on it does it without any delay! If you are out of home you can still use the app to turn the switch on and off but there is a few seconds of delay as you may expect.The shortcoming of the plug is that its quite bulky.You can use widgets on you smart device to control the plug but only by groups of devises and only for one action wich makes the widgets more cumbersome to use for controling individual devices while adding a few seconds of delay to control the plug.The app has a timer function so you can switch the device off after a certain amount of time. You can also schedule the device to come on and off as many times as you want (limited to minute intervals). The other anoying feature was that the timing is difficult to set up as its like setting alarms. If you want to set lots up ie for a fish tank pump to go on and off at half hour intervals you have to set up 24 on signals and 24 off signals.Overall I have enjoyed the plug (so much so that i bought a second one) and think they have so much potential.

  28. First thing I wanted to mention is that these are really easy to set up both on WiFi and with Amazon Echo/Alexa. We bought them to control lamps in our living room and we were able to unbox and say “Alexa, turn on living room lights” in about twenty minutes.The only negative is that the smart plugs are a little bulky – if for example you have little clearance between a current socket and the back of a sideboard you might need to get creative.The positives are that they look good and have a nice visual light on them that confirms they are connected to WiFi and their current power state. A physical button exists on the plug to change power state if you need to. The setup on Android with the Kasa App was really easy – you can provide each device with a friendly name and also set up schedules if you want the sockets turning themselves on and off when on holiday for example.Once set up on Android or iOS and the sockets are connected to WiFi they can then be set up with the Amazon Echo using Amazon Alexa app. Bear in mind before you can find the sockets in the Smart Home section you must first ensure the sockets have any updates installed from the Kasa App and then install the TP-LINK Kasa skill. Once the sockets are found in the Smart Home section they are very easy to configure and add to groups – attached some screenshots of our configuration.Overall we’re very satisfied and will no doubt be getting some more in the future.

  29. TP-Link HS100 Wi-Fi Smart Plug, Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, No Hub Required, Control Your Devices from Anywhere (UK Plug)Absolutely love these smart plug sockets – they are so useful, easy to control and can be programmed via the TP-Link App called Kasa. The TP-Link website rates these as having a maximum load 13A, and a maximum power 2.99 KWAnother great feature is this can be used with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant (in addition to setting schedules in the Kasa App). I love the ability to say ‘Alexa, switch on or off bedside light’ and it’s done! You simply add the ‘skill’ to the Amazon Echo via their App or online. And, each socket can be named to whatever you like (I prefer to keep the description short).Setting these up requires the use of the Kasa App – download that to your mobile device and follow the instructions – it takes a few minutes to connect to your device then the wi-fi, but once it’s done, its so simple to use.Another thing, if you’re using Amazon Alexa, in order for the Echo to accept and understand the voice commands to instruct the smart sockets, you need to open the Amazon Alexa App, go to the Settings option, select Smart Home, then select Devices, and finally click on Discover – your devices will appear and be available for voice command.I love these – they are brilliant! They are a little bulky and am sure in time there will be far smaller units, but they are so useful – it’s fantastic to be able to set schedules and manually override if you’re away from home to switch your devices on or off.

The TP-Link website rates these as having a maximum load 13A, and a maximum power 2.99 KWAnother great feature is this can be used with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant (in addition to setting schedules in the Kasa App). I love the ability to say ‘Alexa, switch on or off bedside light’ and it’s done! You simply add the ‘skill’ to the Amazon Echo via their App or online. And, each socket can be named to whatever you like (I prefer to keep the description short).Setting these up requires the use of the Kasa App – download that to your mobile device and follow the instructions – it takes a few minutes to connect to your device then the wi-fi, but once it’s done, its so simple to use.Another thing, if you’re using Amazon Alexa, in order for the Echo to accept and understand the voice commands to instruct the smart sockets, you need to open the Amazon Alexa App, go to the Settings option, select Smart Home, then select Devices, and finally click on Discover – your devices will appear and be available for voice command.I love these – they are brilliant! They are a little bulky and am sure in time there will be far smaller units, but they are so useful – it’s fantastic to be able to set schedules and manually override if you’re away from home to switch your devices on or off.

  51. This device works with an app called ecouodfamily.it is generic app that is used by these Chinese knock offs. The app then links to Google home, assistant (see screenshot) or Alexa. Long winded I know. But the app is not in the list to select on assistant. So cannot do all the really cool stuff like saying ok Google good night and all the lights go off. If you are happy just to go on a generic app and turn off lights on and off this will be okay.The manual that comes with this only has instructions for Alexa.

  52. My third device and as previously, excellent product works perfectly with Echo. Not the easiest product to set up, but if you follow the instructions carefully there are no problems.

  53. I have bought a number of these smart plugs. They work well, enough however two have melted without blowing it’s supplied fuse. The first time it happened I just thought I was unlucky. The second time today and I know it’s the device.I have a portable air-con / heater unit that runs off a normal domestic 13 amp plug. The smartplug is supplied with a fuse and that should protect itself. Even though weeks have gone by using the same aircon everyday on the same TPLink smartplug, today the smartplug melted down, enough to leave the live pin plus fuse holder stuck to the plug socket. Somehow the unit continued to work until the smell of burning led my nose to the problem. It was only on switching the thing off and trying to remove it from the socket that the destruction can be found.TP Link should lower the fuse rating on the device to avoid this overload-heating issue surely if it cannot handle the amp-rating of its own supplied fuse…. I will write to them and suggest it.

  54. Works very well. Haven’t figured out what to use it on a regular basis for. Favourite use so far has been to turn off slow cooker when at work. I had it on a lamp (haven’t got Alexa yet) so could only turn lamp on using app and not by lamp switch as the plug is off by default.

  55. Well these arrived quicker than expected, and as they are a present for my wife and the home security, I wrapped up two and tried out one, it took a lot of faffing about but finally got it to work off turning on and off a Christmas light from my phone. It seems to work off 4G as well as WiFi, (set up on WiFi first) I do not know how to control this from the Echo Dot yet but that is also wrapped up for Christmas. The theory is I should be able to turn on lights when we are away from the house. I can only try. I do not know how to change the name of the device, so it might affect all of them???? (I am 72 and have fear of modern technology)Up date on Review one of the units failed to work after a week The company have been in touch so good service there. but I am still left with one not working unit which will be returned, I have asked for a replacement, but the company thinks everything is working OK now.I am pleased with the working two from the pack as they are only being used by my wife as a disability aid to turn of bed side lights etc. either from the phone or the echo dot, so I guess if all three were working this would get 5 stars.

  56. Set up straight out of the box following the quick set up card instructions in the box which was straight forward and then acrivated through the ‘Smart home’ tab in the Alexa Echo app. Now I can turn my lounge lamp on & off via a simple Alexa command! Will definitely buying more smart home plugs and devices as they are the perfect companion to the Echo.

  57. They do work as advertised, however while they are on they cause unforeseen interference with other devices – they hog the WiFi connection completely (which is nuts seeing as you need it so infrequently just to turn lights on or off), and in particular they mess up your ability to watch tv using your Chromecast completely. You have to switch off all the plugs or else Chromecasts won’t stream at all (they don’t get sufficient bandwidth).Big big problem as it’s highly unlikely you want these plugs to dominate everything connected to your WiFi

  58. So I’ve ended up buying a couple of these and I plan to use them in as many sockets as possible around my house.Great for lamps, electronic devices and now I’ve even got one on my coffee machine – you’re able to control the plug from an app (switching on and off) as well as setting up timers and schedules!You can set a schedule for a TV in your kids room to make sure it switches off when you want them to sleep or get their homework done!They’re so easy to setup too – Literally Just plug it in, connect to the app and tell it your WiFi password. That’s it. You’re ready to go!!What’s even better is, they’re compatible with Alexa! So if you’ve got an Echo, you can control the smart plug with your voice! Now I can wake up in the morning, ask Alexa to turn the coffee machine on and by the time I’m downstairs, my coffee is waiting for me!Brilliant little devices at a bargain price! You won’t be disappointed!

  59. Amazon Prime delivered today. I followed the helpful user manual, first scanning the IOS App QR code (also Android Ap QR code available). Downloaded the App ‘eFamilyCloud’ (first making sure that my iPhone was connected to my home with 2.4GHz WiFi.Registered and chose a password.I forgot the step to reset the device. I plugged in and switched on power, the light was flashing and the App found the device and linked quickly.I checked the App switched the WiFi Socket on / off – yes!!I next used Amazon Alexa App and added the ‘eFamilyCloud’ skill and linked (all in user manual) – yes again!! Alexa switches the socket on / off at my instruction.My only complaint is that the light on front of the socket is far too bright and might disturb in eg a dark bedroom!? Hence I’ve only given 4 Stars rating.Note: Power limit is 2000W load (about 8.5A).I haven’t yet tested App timing and it’s other features, which look useful.Multi-pack purchases are even better value!

  60. Arrived the next day, works after easy setup you open the app and you can view, BUT! it does not record unless your device (phone) has the application open/running, in other words you can only record while the application on your phone ON. Motion Detection all is does it send you a notification.

  62. Great quality image for the price only complaint is setup via WiFi seems hard work. Best advice is to connect via Ethernet to setup and then move to WiFi from there.

  64. When the camera works, its great. However i frequently find myself having to reset it after checking the app and seeing no camera available. Use it to check on thinhs when travelling so losing connection while we’re away is disappointing, especially since it happens a lot. Will probably get a different cam next time with more reliability

  77. Wifi connected home automation is here to stay. This plug is connected to your wifi and using the Kasa app on your phone you can turn it on/off easily and set schedules – so it can be used to replace a standard timer switch if that is what you want. There are some neat features, such as the ability to say you are on holiday and it will set a randomised on/off timer, within a given time frame, so it looks like you are still in. So far so good…I want my home automation to link into my voice activated devices – mostly I want to control this with my Amazon Echo devices. Whilst this looks simple enough to do I found it a bit of a chore..I tried, I tried, I updated firmware, I did a reset, I tried, I tried and I tried again and then my Echo just found it – in theory you used the Alexa app on your phone, add the Kasa home automation skill, add your logon details and then it should be discovered…mine took many tries and I’d just about given up (I’d actually contacted TP-Link support…I work in IT so I’m pretty loath the contact support) when it worked. I can now control it using my voice (as long as I’m near an Echo) or the Alexa app, and it still follows all the settings from the Kasa app. It’s pretty useful to be honest, it controls the lamp in my bedroom – voice control for on and off!!!

  78. I bought one of these to replace my Belkin Smart sockets. These are okay – when they work. The problem is that they keep dropping off the network and are a real pain to reconnect.The TP-Link HS100 has much better reviews everywhere so I decided to try one of these to replace them.Setup was not easy. It should have been, but it wasn’t.I live in the middle of the countryside in a stone house and a little distance from a public road, so I don’t need a password on my wifi. Someone would have to be in my garden and outside a window to pick up my wifi! Therefore it’s not an issue for me at all.This socket will simply not work with an unsecured network. You have to either change all the settings on all your devices to use a password, or create a new wireless network with a password.I had to create a new SSID with a password, specifically for this device. Devices like this should not require this level of technical knowledge!I followed the instructions, connected to the socket wifi – but the app wouldn’t recognise that the socket was connected. I tried several times, but nothing. The app wouldn’t find the socket. A couple of times, the setup seemed to complete, but the light on the unit never turned solid green.When it finally found the socket, and I tried to connect to it, the app kept telling me that I could only control it when connected to wifi, despite having an active wifi connection!Eventually I worked out there was a conflict with my VPN, I had to disable it to get everything working.It took over 30 minutes and lots of swearing to get it to work – all because it didn’t like unsecured networks. This should not be a limitation. No-one should tell me whether I need a wifi password!Eventually, when it was configured, it worked more reliably than the Wemo sockets. They are cheaper, more compact and more responsive, and have more IFTTT recipes.If the network limitations are not a problem for you, these are great.

  79. Really easy to set up. I already has a Kasa account and it literally took me less than 2 minutes to set this up. Simple and well written instructions and a well designed app make this really easy to use (Android version tested). Another couple of minutes to link it to Google Home and sign in using the Kasa log in, and I had myself a voice controlled plug.The device itself, whilst not the slimmest or most attractive on the market, is functional, there is a local on/off button, it displays he current state of the plug (if it’s powering anything), and it’s wifi connection state.The app itself is very well done, giving schedules (which include sunrise and sunset events), away mode (random on off times during a set time and day window, and a switch countdown timer mode.I already have a first generation HS100 and a HS110 (the power monitoring version), and owned them for a couple of years. They have been very very reliable, with literally no problems whatsoever, no need to reboot them, they have worked perfectly, so I have lots of faith in this brand of devices and no reason to believe the second gen HS100 is any different.I recently reviewed a competitors wifiplug, and the setup difference between this, and the other plug in literally night and day, This is the real deal, and well worth the asking price.
