      Wi-fi Range extender with buildt-in Smartplug func

      Posted
      itzram

      There are two parts to this product. It is a wireless Wi-Fi extended and it is also a smart plug. The electric plug is managed through wifi. TP-LINK Kasa App available in all the app stores allows you to remotely (not physical interaction) manage any device (on/off) attached to this plug. I setup the app in about 2 minutes. Probably 2 or 3 taps in the app is that is required, rest of the time is taken by the app to basically discover the devices, connect to them and setting up themselves to manage those devices. Really simple, intuitive and fairly quick. There is also a "scene" functionality. This is quite interesting. Basically, you can create a customs scene, say a "Movie watching" scene. In this scene you can set all light adapters to off and only one ambient light adapter to be on. So if you tap that scene, all lights turn on/off appropriately in one tap. This is pretty cool. I can only visualize the idea behind it as I had just one adapter to check the functionality. You can also set the app in away mode which will allow you to operate the plug even when you are away. For example you could turn the lights on in your house during night time when you are away to simulate presence in the house. The app also integrates with Alexa which means that Alexa can learn to use the app to manage the devices. So, you can talk to alexa which talks to Kasa and manages the devices. The second part of this device is the Wi-Fi extender. This is similar to the AC2600 Wi-Fi extender available with TP-Link. I have used this product and I can tell you that they have fixed a bunch of issues on the AC2600 with the AC1200 range extender with smart plug. I could setup the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies in one pass (the AC2600 has many issues in setup). There are quite a few controls such as a access controls that you can set regarding which devices can access the extender. However, one big con is that performance through the extender drops like a stone in water. In my house, I could get only 50% of the performance with an extender as compared to direct Wi-Fi. That is some serious performance overhead there in this device. But then, the purpose of this device is to provide better performance than a connection with just a single band of signal. The KASA app also allows you to control the extender functionality completely over the cloud when you are away from home or using local Wi-Fi when you are in. Everything works like a charm. I would recommend this product where you are looking to make your home smart and at the same time trying to get some wifi extensions going in your backyard or something like that. Submitted as part of a free sample program There is another major con. There is a significant reduction in performance when you compare to connecting to an extended vs direct Wi-Fi. In the case of the AC1200

      Perfect Size!

      The HS105 turns any of your standard devices into a "Smart" device. Once you start using this, you will quickly see the benefits. This is especially apparent if you own an Amazon Alexa device (echo/dot). The build quality is very good. It is sturdy and certainly doesn't feel flimsy or cheap. The design of this product is where it really shines. One of the biggest complaints of most Smart Plugs is there bulky size which in turn means that they often cover/obstruct more than one power outlet. I was pleased to find that TP-Link has overcome this issue with this newly designed Smart Plug. What's more impressive is how simple the solution was – making a wider Smart Plug, instead of a taller Smart Plug! Good move TP-Link! Since this is considerably smaller, I was worried that the range (distance away from the Wi-Fi router) would be affected. I had no issues, and I was able to plug this device a reasonable distance away from my Wi-Fi router. The scheduling aspect is great! There are a lot of variables you can set. Time (hours and minutes, am/pm), switch action (on or off), and repeat (days of week - you can select one individual day, every day, or a combination of days). A programmed event requires two "events" in the app, a switch action "on" and a switch action "off". This is useful if you have a routine with turning on/off a device in your home. Some uses I have for this HS105 are for lamps, entertainment units, irons, fans or just about anything you want to conveniently turn on/off or set timers for. Overall this is a fantastic Smart Plug that works flawlessly. This review was submitted as part of a free sample program.

      Absolutely Perfect Smart Wi-Fi Power Plug

      Posted

      This one is a home-run ! The TP-Link HS105 Smart Wi-Fi Plug is a perfect solution for remotely controlling any device that you would plug into a standard 120volt wall socket. It is a perfect size, so it does not block the second wall plug, and two HS105's will even fit side-by-side in a standard dual plug wall outlet. Installation and setup takes less than 5 minutes. You simply download the TP-Link KASA APP to your iPhone or Android device, plug the HS105 into an outlet, and then launch the KASA Application and follow the simple prompts to configure the Wi-Fi plug to operate to any schedule that you may want. It also works with the Amazon Alexa, further simplifying your remote control options. I have used two of these to control the scheduling of on/off times for two cabinet light sets that plug in to separate outlets on either side of my fireplace. We have a lot of power interruptions where I live, and my old rotary timers were always getting out of synch with each other, in addition to always needing to be re-set after power outages. The two power outlets are in the lowest cabinets and back on the wall - a real pain to get to. This is NO LONGER A PROBLEM! With the lights plugged into the HS105's, I just set the schedules, and they run perfectly, correcting to the actual time based on my wireless router's time which updates automatically when power is restored. Disclaimer: Submitted as part of a free sample program I will be buying a few sets of HS105's for the Christmas season. I have the same synching and remote on/off scheduling problems in multiple locations when the Holiday lights are out. It will be very nice to be able to control all of those to any schedule that I want from the comfort of my chair (or bed) ! I haven't tried the Away Mode and remote scheduling feature the HS105's while traveling yet, but this is clearly a very handy feature that I plan to use. All in all, I am very satisfied with these programmable plugs, and I highly recommend them!

      Solution to control Home Devices thru your Network

      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I received the HS105 Smart WiFi Plug as part of a review program. Similiarly, as before, I like to point out that I’m technical, but not an IT person or a hacker or anything like that. In fact, I’m a FamilyMan with multiple users (teenagers) and thus multiple devices hooked into my router. Usually anywhere from 20-25 devices. And this Smart WiFi Plug works directly within my needs because I have a second house and this device helps me manage my home devices from afar. First, let’s talk about setup. The HS105 smart plug is – well – plugged directly into an open wall socket. I then opened (or for someone new, you’ll need to download) the TP-Link Kasa app. I then pressed the button in the app that requested for me to add a new device and BAM! There is was, it then asked me to click the button in the app which gave it the command to link into my established home network and BAM! It connected, that’s it, nothing more to do other than give it a personal name (Kitchen Plugin). I can’t make this up, it was that easy! So, what’s cool about this is that I can now control a light, schedule it, etc to act as if I’m home even when I’m not. I can schedule a timer, or tell it I’m away! All in all a very simple and useful tool to have whether in my case at my second home, or even at my primary residence to control the lights in my teenagers bedroom to get him to go to sleep! It also works with Alexa if you have one of those.

      Installation a bit tedious, but so far works well

      I so far have three of these, controlled by an Amazon Echo Dot 2nd generation. Installation requires that you first download an app to your phone (called Kasa) and create an account with TP-Link. Then you connect the plug to an outlet and set your phone to use the Wi-Fi signal coming from the plug. Then you set the plug to use your own Wi-Fi connection, switch your phone back to your own Wi-Fi connection, and then you should see the plug in your list of devices under Kasa. In my experience, the Kasa application would keep asking to reconnect after this last step, but if you close and restart the app it sees the plugs fine. On the Echo Dot side, you have to add the Kasa skill and then provide access to the TP-Link account used when configuring the plug through the Kasa app. Note that when you add another TP-Link device (like another plug), or rename one you already have, you have to go back into the Alexa app and rescan for devices - they're not automatically added to Alexa even after the skill has been configured. The only other thing to note is that the plugs do make a switching sound when being turned on or off, like a light switch might do. So the plugs are not silent when changing state. Other than that, they are unobtrusive and their connectivity light only turns on when they are switched on. When they are off the light is off so no night-light effect.

      Smart plug mini is a real space saver

      Posted
      RonJon

      Installation was blissfully easy on my Android and iOS devices via the intuitive Kasa app, which holds your hand through the entire process. During testing, the TP-Link Smart Plug never lost its connection to our WiFi network, and the handy Remote Control feature lets you easily control your plug even when you’re away from home. There’s even a clever “Away” mode that turns your lights on and off at random to make potential burglars think you’re home when you’re not. Like its bigger brother, the Smart Plug Mini enjoys easy setup on iOS and Android, a great mobile app, convenient remote control, integration with Amazon Alexa, and neat extra features like the aforementioned Away Mode. Unlike its sibling, however, it only covers a single outlet regardless of where you position it. It’s one of the smallest plugs, making it a great choice for buyers who don’t have a lot of space. Unfortunately, it also costs more than the Smart Plug with Energy Monitoring and, well, doesn’t offer energy monitoring. In other words, you need to be really concerned about space to choose it over the slightly larger alternatives from TP-Link and iDevices. Price and features aside, this plug is every bit as solid a performer as its stablemate: I had no issues with connectivity during the testing period, and it was very responsive to commands on both iOS and Android devices. If you find it on deep discount and don’t need energy monitoring functionality, it’s a very good choice. Review submitted as part of a free sample program

      Great product but some caveats

      This plug worked as advertised. Positives: -Excellent value for smart remote control from my phone app (android). - Good wifi receiver worked throughout my house including outside outlets. I went ahead and bought two more after initially testing the first one. -Can change dusk-to-dawn settings automatically through out the year so I will replace the old timer controls that I have to change manually. - Can turn on exterior flood light manually at night e.g. if I hear something outside or dogs are barking, etc. Negatives: - Potential fire hazard- I would not recommend using at the full rating the company claims (15Amps). The penetration of the metal contacts into the female portion of the plug doesn't seem adequate. I plan to use mine for low-current LED lighting but I would be nervous about running the full 15 amps without thoroughly testing for overheating especially from a remote location. - TP-Link has padded/flooded their reviews with over 18,000 and with over 1000 questions/answers on Amazon, I was happy to be able to see real reviews and make my purchase decision at BestBuy.
