FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

TP-Link HS100 Smart Plug (2-Pack), Wi-Fi, Works with Alexa, Control Your Devices from anywhere (HS100 KIT)


Sadly I'm seldom grinning when I review a tech product.  Mostly because of the frequency with which they are difficult to set up and have abysmal instructions.  Wow, was I surprised with this product.  I have that giddy smile that accompanies a successful product test.  This works GREAT!  It configured easily and worked as advertised.   It is annoying that I can seldom report that but in this case I am happy to inform the world and TP-Link, JOB WELL DONE.   I scanned the QRC code on the quick start guide, downloaded the software into my phone, set the plug up and tested it in less time that it will take you to read this review.  What is even better is that the configuration holds even if you unplug the smart plug and plug it in elsewhere in range of your network.  Frankly that flexibility makes the product far more valuable as there isn't a need for constant re-setting the software.

Even better is that this product interfaces with the Amazon Echo.   I am impatiently waiting for delivery of my Echo and I can't wait to try it with this smart plug.  This is a product I can cheerfully recommend.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
