    Very Useful Device!

    TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug HS100 The Smart Plug works with your existing wireless network. Setup is pretty easy once you have installed the free Kasa app, which is how you will turn your smart plug, and anything plugged in to them, on and off. And yes, you will be able to control your smart plug from anywhere in the world with your smartphone, as long as you have internet access. And for those of you wanting to take the cool factor up a notch, by controlling the smart plug with voice commands, you can set it up with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. If you are wanting to have multiple devices come on at once, like maybe a lamp and radio, or TV, whatever, plug a power strip into the smart plug, then plug those devices into the power strip. When you turn the smart plug on, those devices that are plugged into the power strip will come on too. I only bring this up for those who may have a hard time understanding just how a smart plug works, and what you can do with one. Not everyone is tech-savvy. Just trying to give them a basic idea of what can be done with one. You could also purchase additional smart plugs and have them all set to come on at different times of the night- turning on lights throughout your home or business, which gives the appearance that someone is there. Certainly won’t stop an intruder from breaking inside if he or she is determined to do so, but it may just give them a reason to stop and think about it. Just keep in mind, some devices may not work with a smart plug; meaning you will need to actually press the power button on them to turn them on/off. I know some TVs are like this. Smart plugs are pretty cool devices, and can be extremely useful around your home or business. If you need further info on this smart plug, and needing ideas on how to use it, search Youtube with the text below. TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug HS100 Happy new year, and enjoy your smart plug!

    Perfect for hooking up home applicances!

    I was given this HS100 - N150 Wireless Smart Plug as part of a free sample program. Yet, it is one of the coolest items I have placed into my house! A large statement, I know, but it has added a lifestyle ease that is simple to justify. Bottom line is my wife loves it and uses it. As a tech power user, I’m constantly trying out new items in my house. But, what made this a success for my wife is her ability to talk to our lights. I use that as a way to hook up our table lamp to our home network through the Smart Plug. And tp-link has made it simple and compatible to Google Home and Mini (which I personally use) and also Amazon Echo products. Thus, my wife comes into the living room to sit down on the couch and instead of reaching down to flip the switch connected to the lamp cord, she simply says “lamp on” and BAMM! It turns on! Ok, how about ease of use? I plugged this into the socket and held the connect button and again BAMM! It automatically linked into my home WiFi network. I then connected it into tp-link’s mobile app Kasa which identified it and gave it access into my Google home devices. This may have been the quickest and simplest install I have ever experienced. Bottom line as noted above, if you want to please your wife, get this product. I’m going to get several more! I may be a reviewer of products, but this one really solves problems and is not just a nice to have.

    This was recommended by the tech wiz to use with my amazon echo+ & echo dot... it has the worst connectivity problems! TP-Link customer support walked me through the simple instructions I had already completed several times then suggested I call Amazon support. Amazon walked me through the same steps several more times, had me delete & re-install both apps... we walked through the same set up again & still a failure... but after deleting Alexa app as instructed I had to then re-install all my smart products already installed . Then Amazon told me to call back TP-Link support again. Yeah still did not work with Amazon Echo + Product is bulky & covered most of outlet making 2nd outlet unusable & is unsightly. There are much better products sold in bulk from amazon that will enable two smart outlets & blend seamlessly with Amazon Echo products! My rating is negative 1star!

      Hi HBonNB,

      Thank you for sharing your experience with our smart plug. In your case we first recommend ensuring your smart plug's firmware is fully up to date using the steps outlined here: http://www.tp-link.com/us/faq-1256.html

      We also recommend using the Smart Plug in the upper outlet, which should leave enough room for a small or standard plug to be used in the lower outlet in some cases. However, if space is tight, our HS105 Smart Plug Mini might be a better option.

      Our Support Team is always happy to listen, and answer any questions you might have about our products. Please feel free to e-mail Kasa.Support@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

      Best Regards,

    I Love This Plug!

    HS100 Smart Plug I am so heavily in the TP-Link and Alexa universes that I can never have enough TP-Link smart devices. This Wi-Fi smart plug is now also compatible with Google Assistant. You can group a series of these plugs via the Kasa app (for iOS and Android) and Alexa. (I can’t comment on Google Assistant because I don’t use that.) I love that I can use this smart plug as a timer, setting up individual on/off for each day of the week, or use it to power on devices remotely or via Alexa voice control. The “away” mode turns the power to the plug on and off at random times within a prescribed time period so that it appears that someone is home. All this is configured through the Kasa app. Alexa just gives you voice control to the on/off feature of the plug. Set-up is easy, and it requires a smart phone with the downloaded Kasa app. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Affordable Alexa Compatibility

    If you want to control a pluggable device via Alexa, look no further. The HS100 is what you need. It is directly integrated with Alexa and can be configured to work locally or remotely if you want to operate devices while away. The setup process could not be easier. The TP-Link Kasa application is used to control all of TP-Link's smart home devices. It walks you through the setup process. Kasa will also allow you to configure a schedule for when to turn your connected devices on/off. Additionally, there is an away mode which turns your devices on and off at different times to give the appearance that someone is home. Comparing this to Wemo, it has been more stable. I've not had any connection issues with this whereas I have had a couple with Wemo, especially when the device had been unplugged from the wall.

    Very cool device with great app. Works well.

    I’ve been using a couple of TP-links Wi-Fi plugs including this one for the last few months. I love how well they work with Alexa and how easy the app is to you. I love it so much I just ordered another Wi-Fi set, smart light bulbs and one of their powerline kits so I don’t have to pay money for slow internet when I move into my new home in the countryside on June 1st. The voice commend on Alexa is great. You simply turn the bedroom lights on and they turn on. You do need to have an option for each device turned on to use it with Alexa. This option is called “remote connected” and you’ll find it in the Kasa app. You also get scheduling capability which is really useful. I’ve already saved money on my recent electric bills.

    Glitchy start up

    I held off on getting a smart outlet for awhile. How hard is it for someone to get off the couch and turn on a light? Well, I'm not ashamed to say Alexa had me spoiled before, but now I'm hopeless. It is so nice to be able to control a light in the other room. Set up thru the Kasa app was a bit difficult at first. I ended up having to delete the plug on my account, then finish setting up the cloud before adding it. Once I had a full verified account, integrating the app with Alexa was a breeze. I managed to use the top outlet so the bottom was free. I also got creative and plugged an extension cord so I could control 2 table lamps with the one plug. I will be buying more for additional outlets.

    I bought this item to go with my Alexa Echo Dot. Pairing is very simple and straight forward. Once paired I can either tell Alexa to turn on or off a lamp, patio lights or front porch lights with a simple command. When I am out of town, these lights can be scheduled to turn on or off while no one is at home (Schedule times). It gives the impression that you are home. Also, I can turn on or turn off the lights through my cell phone from just about anywhere you travel with the Kasa App which is linked to these smart plugs. I would highly recommend this product.

    I happen to see this in BestBuy just like that and bought it, you know what I am using this almost every day. I have a light and fan connected to it to my living room and bedroom. Typically I forget to manage this effectively because of my laziness either forget to switch off in time or some times forget totally due to my way of getting to office , hurrying up to parties etc., Now using the Mobile app I check it often and make sure the switches are operated effectively even remotely. Excellent product to try if you wish to go for Home Automation.

    I love the TP-Link smart plugs. They are really easy to setup and work great. I have quite a few of them and use mostly for lights but they will work for anything you plug into them. I have them all turn on/off at times I've scheduled and I can manually turn on/off remotely as well through an app on my phone. I like that I can turn them on/off individually or as a group and I also have them linked to my Amazon Echo Dot so Alexa can turn the plugs on or off at my voice command. The setup took less than 90 seconds per plug.

    Tracks power usage over time

    I just got two of these and love them. Paired easily with wifi and Google Home. These handle high current devices such as electric heaters. They also track power usage so you can see how much it cost to operate a device over time. This feature is the sole reason why I bought these over the minis. Only downside is what some other mentioned - device covers both outlets on a duplex outlet. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

    This is an excellent smart plug and works great with the TP-Link ecosystem. I was able to control my Christmas lights easily with this device and the app. Setup was a breeze and was up and running in less than five minutes. I love how you can set a schedule and not worry about it as everything turns on and off at the desired time. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants a budget friendly smart plug with great features. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    I use several of these items in our home. Using the kasa app and Alexa, I more easily control lights during the morning and evening and make the house appear to be 'more' lived in than it might ordinarily show. One downside of this device is it partly covers the lower outlet on a duplex outlet. The tp-link app, kasa, is easy once you get used to it. I'd like to see similar security camera products from tp-link for kasa.

    I purchased this app controlled Smart Outlet to turn on/off my living room table lamp and it works great. I have it linked to my Amazon Echo Dot and use voice control to tell Alexa to turn it on or off. No need to physically flip the switch on/off anymore or fumbling in the dark to turn it on. Plus it also has a programmable schedule feature to turn the outlet on/off at designated times which is why I bought a 2nd one for the fish aquarium tank light.

    Very good value, easy to set up

    Johnny

    It does the job, at a very affordable price. This smart plug is extremely simple to set up, and I use it for the bedroom light, and link it to my Echo at home, it works seamlessly! No more hand switching required! Please note that this is the slightly bigger version, you cannot fit two at a 2 plugs outlet. If that is what you need, there is the other TP-Link smart plug version for it. Submitted as part of a free sample program.

    I had purchased 2 of these on Amazon before Christmas through a special when ordering Echo and Echo dot. We found them easy to set up-and very convenient. I ordered another through Best Buy as I had points to use. The first was defective-returned it to a local store and they reordered for me-got it quickly and no problem with set up. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes "techy gadgets".

    Easy setup, useful with the app, works with Alexa. The only two issue I have found with it are- Does not work with Google Home yet, and the wifi range it not so good. It keeps saying my plugs are local only when they are merely in the next room from my router and my phone signal show full wifi connection. I hope they improve this. Also wish they integrated with Google Home soon so I can use voice command like I used to when I had Alexa.

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    After the product failing after a month, I was put through a 2 week interrogation of what was wrong and what I could try to correct it...I was promised a replacement if these suggestions didn't work and even give an RMA # as a 'carrot and stick' routine. I now believe that this company will never replace a faulty device no matter what they promise. Avoid this seller unless you have loads of spare time to waste after the smart plug fails.

    Greetings, I have the opportunity to test a smart WiFi plug from TP-Link. This is a great device to have. I have one connected to my Christmas tree and made a schedule to light up and turn off. I installed in my family room so when I'm out can turn it on from anywhere when I'm away. Set-up with the Kasa app is a breeze and compatibility with Amazon Alexa is so convenient.

    I've just recently started to make my home a "Smart Home." I started with an Amazon Echo Dot followed by T-P Link Smart Plugs for my lights. Then I added a Logitech Harmony Hub for my television and Ecco Bee thermostats. I'm very happy with the functionality of the T-P Link Smart Plugs. They were very easy to set up and connect to my Amazon Echo Dot. There is also an app for my smart phone and tablet, which makes controlling my lights very convenient.
