I have had good experiences with TP-Link devices in the past, so I had high hopes for these little WiFi outlets, and they didn't disappoint.

1) Setup was a piece of cake: just plug them in and use the Kasa app to configure them. You can also control these by voice if you are an Echo user -- adding them as new devices is easily done through the Alexa app. (They are also compatible with Google Home devices.)

2) They are small and unobtrusive, projecting about an inch and a half from the outlet. And because they are so compact, you CAN plug two of them in at the same receptacle, one above the other.

3) They require NO HUB, since they connect via WiFi -- this is a huge plus!

4) They are very easy to control with the Kasa app, which is well designed and fairly intuitive. You can use the app not only to turn the plugs on and off but also to set schedules so lamps or other appliances turn on and off at designated times.

I have had no connectivity issues with these, and I would certainly buy them again. (In fact, I will almost certainly purchase more because I keep finding new places where these can be useful!)

A tip for Echo users: I try to limit the number of different brands and makers of my smart home devices beacuse each brand typically has its own phone app and adds an extra layer of complexity to the whole setup. But inevitably you are likely to have devices from several different brands. If you like to set schedules and routines for plugs, lamps, etc., rather than using each individual brand's phone app, you can set all of their schedules using the Alexa app. This greatly simplifies things, as you can look at ONE app to see the schedules of all of your different devices.

I really like the TP-Link brand and this smart outlet is no exception. With this unit one can at least plug two (2) things in at the same time in the outlet (one smart plug and one regular plug or two smart plugs).... HOWEVER the smart engineer would have put the plug part of the smart plug on the side, top or bottom so that it didn't stick out of the wall 2"+ and with a plug... almost 4". That leaves the plug way out in the room if it is behind something. Great plug... poor engineering.

I hate to write a bad review but this product support is terrible and if something goes wrong forget the hassle to return. I bout the 2 pack. One would not toggle the the remote control switch to use away from the installed location. So i contacted customer support. I spent hours on internet and phone to try and resolve. It could not be done. Plus all the info online they want you to access is not compatible with apple products, only windows. So the gave me a return number and tried to log in. It would not accept my password. I had to reset password 4 times to final get in. Then found other products i had already registered was not in system.
But back to this product. it would not recognize my serial number. Finally tried to use the return system and they want a credit card number...........If it doesn't get back within 30 days from the start of return they charge you. And they send a free return label but no box to return it in....So I had another product and just tried to register and it won't recognize the serial number. Seriously!!!!! When they work its nice but so far if anything goes wrong they do not care about your future business by making it almost impossible to return.

I have an Amazon smart plug and these Kasa smart plugs by TP-Link work just as well. Once you have the Kasa app installed, setup was a breeze and took me less than 2 minutes - including updating the plugs to the latest software version. It is very well integrated and were discovered easily by Alexa w/o any hiccups.

Once that is done, you can group them together however you like. I even create scenes using geo-fencing that will turn on my kitchen lamp when I am near home. I planned to use one of them for my Christmas lights. This way I don't have to bother with the old timer like before.

The plugs feels solid and high quality. The side power button turn on manually with a satisfying click. The Kasa is actually a little smaller the Amazon smart plug. Long term, I have an older TP-Link plug I bought over 2 years ago and it is still working like a charm. Haven't experience any disconnect from my home Wi-fi yet.

Why get just 1 Amazon smart plug when you can get 2 of these for the same price, built, quality, and ease of use.

I have owned a number of different "smart" switches. Of late, I had 3 different brands with 3 different apps including an IHome app that worked horribly with Alex and constantly lost connection, some that used the Smart Life app that made me nearly lose my religion trying to keep them all connected, and a light switch and outlet that use Kasa app (TP Link). The only two that worked every single time and had a mutually beneficial relationship with Alexa were the ones on the Kasa app.

So after finally giving up on the others I grabbed 2 of these. PERFECT! Easy set up. No crazy needing to scan the back of the plug that is clearly plugged in so you can't scan it kind of stuff--or the press the button for 15 seconds and then press it three times fast craziness. Quick connect, and because Alexa already had my Kasa app skill, immediate recognition. Needless to say, I'm super happy! Won't use ANYTHING that doesn't work with Kasa app from now on!

Pierde mucho la conectividad. Batallo tanto con las aplicaciones que Alexa me resulta inútil para controlarlos. Son de contentillo, a veces prenden a veces no. No te puedes fiar de que la orden mandada realmente se cumpla. Para usarlos tuve que actualizar todos mis hubs a 2.4 GHz, perdiendo potencia en mi wifi. Conforme existen variaciones de voltaje, se resetean solos haciendo que los electrónicos conectados se apaguen. Por el precio no esperaba mucho, solo que prendieran y apagaran el árbol de navidad y decoraciones, pero mi decepción es mayor.

No puedo atribuir esos problemas a cuestiones de señal del Wifi dado que el router está a 1.5 metros y con todo y eso pierden conectividad.

No los regreso porque perdí la caja, pero NO VALEN LA PENA. Son basura.

Compre estos enchufes para utilizarlos para encender algunos reflectores y lampara que están en el patio. Tengo 5 meses con ellos y funcionan de maravilla, no he tenido problema alguno con ellos siendo que están a la interperie debajo de una marquesina por lo cual no les da el sol directamente ni la lluvia pero el polvo y otros factores si.

en cuestión de conectividad tienen buen alcance tengo uno que esta en el primer piso y mi router esta en el segundo piso de extremo a extremo de la casa y nunca he tenido problema con la conectividad de red. El otro punto es que se sincronizan bastante bien con Alexa se encienden con rutina o por comando de voz, también tenemos la App Oficial la cual nos permite encenderlos o apagarlos estando fuera de la Red interna osea fuera de casa. lo que no he podido lograr es que interactuen con otros dispositivos como las cámaras (ni con las cámaras de TPLink) para cuando detecten un movimiento enciendan las luces.

El empaque la verdad es muy simple una cajita de cartón natural que aparenta como si el producto fuera reconstruido pero no, los enchufes son totalmente nuevos. El precio pues esta al precio de Enchufe de amazon solo que aqui son 2 enchufes.

Sin más, cumplen con la expectativa muy satisfactoriamente.

Me gustó que en la app de configuración te deja ponerle nombre al contacto. Y luego te deja ponerle un icono, vienen varios predeterminados, entre ellos hay ventiladores, luces navideñas, peceras, etc.

Setting these up is easy. I bought them in part because TP-Link is the same company that makes the Deco mesh WIFI router I have, and I had hoped they'd use the same app so I wouldn't need to manage multiple smart things from multiple apps - no such luck. That said, the apps is just fine, looks nice, easy to use. Very simple and very affordable. I don't use the voice integration so can't comment on this. The plugs are big, so difficult to use if your socket is recessed or has a cover overtop it. The box says the operating temperature starts at 0C/32F. I'm using one outdoors in a covered socket below that range... so far, it still works just fine.

El conector es muy fácil de configurar con la app del proveedor, en 10 min esta configurado, la app es muy intuitiva, para programar horarios o un temporizador. Yo lo uso con google home y funciona perfectamente, las indicaciones que le de las reconoce muy bien el conector. Lo único que no me gusto fue en la caja que venian, en una caja de cartón como si el producto fuera refurbished.
