10 reviews for Kasa Smart HS105 Mini WiFi Smart Plug tplink, 1-Pack, White

  1. Scott W

    *** UPDATE 12/2017 ***The iOS app now finds and applies firmware updates for all devices. Updating review to 5-stars!*** UPDATE 5-24-2017 ***Firmware 1.2.1 appears to have solved the problem of dropping wifi connection. Prior to 1.2.1, the longest my HS105’s would stay connected to wifi was 8 hours before they dropped/reconnected. With 1.2.1, my HS105’s have now been continually connected for over 96 hours.I am leaving my 3-star rating for now, because… The KASA app doesn’t detect/upgrade the new firmware. To update to 1.2.1, you need a Windows PC and should search the web for “tp-link faq-949”. That will give you a page where you can download a firmware update utility. The utility is very crude, and always says “update failed!” even though it successfully updates the HS105.If tp-link gets the KASA app fixed so that it can update HS105 to 1.2.1, or starts shipping with 1.2.1 installed, I will bring this rating up to 5 stars.*** ORIGINAL REVIEW ***I had a hard time deciding how to rate this…Functionally, it has worked perfectly — I am using it with both the iOS app and Alexa, and it has never failed to operate as it should, turning on/off as commanded. So from a purely functional standpoint, in my particular environment, it rates 5 stars.But there is “something wrong” with the device firmware; it randomly drops and reconnects from wifi. At least with my particular router, this doesn’t present a problem, and in fact the only way I know it is disconnecting/reconnecting is by looking at the router statistics. The connection may last for an hour, two hours, even eight hours — then it disconnects. With my router, it reconnects and continues just fine — but from a lot of the bad reviews here, I suspect the reconnect doesn’t work with all routers. Signal strength is excellent, so it isn’t a signal problem.In fact, I have a tp-link HS200 (wall switch), and it stays connected indefinitely. This is in the same location, with the same signal strength. The HS200 stays connected forever, but the HS105’s (I have three of them) all disconnect/reconnect randomly after 0-8 hours of operation.I have updated the HS105 to the latest firmware, 1.1.3, but this makes no difference.So from a functional standpoint, with my router (Asus AC88U), I’d give this 4-5 stars. Easy to set up, works well with the TP-Link iOS app and with Alexa. But there is something wrong…. And depending on your router, the frequent disconnect/reconnect may be invisible to you (as it is to me), or it may require manual intervention.Hopefully this is something TP-Link will fix with a future firmware release.

    Works amazing for me with zero problems. It was incredibly easy to set up, the Kasa app seems to pretty much take care of everything besides entering in my WiFi password (which I would definitely have a problem with) lol. I received a 3rd gen Echo Dot from a customer at work as a tip so I bought one of these plugs because I was curious if it could handle a slightly annoying problem I have. I recently wired up 6ft strip of WS2812b LED’S to a 5v 30a power supply and a programmable WiFi controller. So I could control each LED individually. Color, brightness, speed of pattern I want running down the strip etc. I even made an Amazon tablet run the Android OS so I could control the LED’s with that and use the Google play store (because Amazon’s Fire OS is pointless, stupid and a waste of my awake minutes) but I still have to bend down to plug in the power cable just to turn on the power supply because it doesn’t have a switch and I did NOT do all this lazy nonsense just to put that much effort into turning it on. SO. Today I plugged it into the smart plug, connected smart plug to Alexa and yelled LIGHTS!!!! Vualá, magic, evil voodoo, whatever floats your boat but point of the story is now I am . 01% lazier than I was before all this and I am completely ok with that. Cheers TP-Link for actually working in a day and age when everything is supposed to work like magic but almost never does. Your my hero. Now I just have to find a way to control light customization from Alexa while covered in Cheetos laying in bed because this whole 2 app control system is already getting exhausting.

    Get these smart plugs! There are cheaper options on Amazon, but do not get those (I’ve tried them and they do not work). This is a reasonable price for smart plugs. I used to have the full size smart plug which hogged multiple spots on a power strip or wall outlet, but this one only takes up one spot (assuming your power strip stacks its outlets vertically, of course). They are easy to set up with the Kasa app, where you can name each plug (e.g. desk lamp, bed fan, etc.) and set up automation (e.g. turning off all your lights at midnight). On Android, you can also add widgets to the homescreen, so that you can control each of your devices with a single tap. They never lose connection (a stable blue light indicates connectivity) or require any maintenance after the initial setup and firmware update. Even after a power outage, these plugs will automatically reconnect without any action on your part. They work with Google Home’s voice commands, just go into the Home app and link your Kasa account. Note that they only work on 2.4GHz wi-fi, so if you have a single-band router, you will always need to have it on 2.4GHz (I would recommend getting a dual-band router if you are looking to get into home automation, as most smart devices only work on 2.4GHz).

    Pros:Super easy and fast to set upWorks wellWorks with Alexa, Google Home, IFTTTCons:No Apple HomekitA bit more difficult to set up Google Home than other devicesThis Kasa smart switch by TP-Link was a pleasure to set up.I had it set up literally in less than 5 minutes, and about as long to link to Alexa and Google Home.The set up instructions are really nothing more than a card telling you to download the Kasa app on your smartphone and adding the switch to the app.The set up is easy. As with most WiFi controlled devices, the device goes into AP mode for configuration and then into device mode for operation. Unlike other devices, and seemingly any that support HomeKit, it simply has you connect to that access point on the phone, then go back to the app. The app connects to the device and scans WiFi. You select the WiFi SSID (network name) you want, enter the password, and done.At this point the switch can be controlled from the app. To add Alexa you select the Works with Kasa option in the app, select Alexa. Then enable in Alexa, and done.Google home is a bit less direct, and a bit more clumsy than other devices, but still pretty easy. You need to go into the Google home app, add a device, search for Kasa, then log into Kasa, then configure. A few more steps, but overall not that bad.It also supports IFTTT, and Samsung Smart home that I didn’t set up.It does not support Apple HomeKit. That is probably why it was easy to set up. I really would like to be able to use HomeKit, but almost nothing works well with HomeKit. The whole set up with the code mostly doesn’t work, and if it does it then gets disconnected.This brings me to why I bought the Kasa in the first place. I had a WeMo (Belkin) smart switch, the equivalent product to this. I couldn’t get it to connect after multiple attempts. I called WeMo support (surprisingly a human on a phone). After well over an hour I was finally able to get the WeMo to connect, then get it to connect to HomeKit, Alexa, and Google home. Great. I had the switch in an easy to access socket to set up. I unplugged it to move to where it needed to be and the WeMo stopped connecting to WiFi. After factory resetting the WeMo I was able to get it to connect back to WiFi, but as soon as it was unplugged and plugged back in, it wouldn’t connect again. At this point I just gave up and ordered the Kasa based on other reviews. It was night and day to set up.Similar to the WeMo, I used an easy to access socket to set up, then unplugged it and moved it to the location where the light to be controlled is. With the Kasa, no problem. This is the same location, and the same WiFi network. The Kasa works. The WeMo doesn’t.Part of the problem is HomeKit. HomeKit compatible devices use the HomeKit set up on iOS devices. Some devices sort of let you bypass this, with the WeMo being one of those devices. This is how I initially got it to connect with customer service, by connecting directly to the switch. If it fails though HomeKit recognizes the WiFi AP as a connected device for at least 15 minutes. You need to wait 15 minutes to try again. The whole thing is a mess. I really like Apple devices, but HomeKit is just way more trouble than its worth. Ironically, the only device that I’ve found that works with HomeKit is a Sony Android TV! That TV now controls the light plugged into the Kasa switch with Google Home.Again, the setup on the Kasa was really easy, the way it should be. The competing WeMo was hours of frustration with no results. This was the second WeMo (it was part of a 2-pack like the Kasa), and the first one was also difficult and unreliable. Unless you absolutely can’t live without HomeKit, buy this Kasa. The Kasa just works.

    I already had the oval shaped one. This one rocks! It only takes up 1 space on your outlet. I have my outdoor Christmas lights hooked up to this! (I have an outdoor electrical box that keeps it weather-proof). We have a large living room lamp, 2 different bedroom lamps, an Air Filter, decorative lights around a privacy screen, and our Christmas Star all on a schedule to come on and go off every day! So lovely! I just bought 2 of these new ones at a great price (less than $16) and will probably buy more! The HS105 is the more heavy duty one if you are trying to turn on something that uses more power. PS – If you have an outdoor outlet that comes with a cover it will fit perfectly inside. I have my Christmas lights hooked up with mine and controlled by Alexa.

    I have our TV and Xbox hooked up to this. This is how things used to go in my house:Me: pause the game and put your laundry awayChild: let me just finish this levelMe: no. I need you to do it now.Child: but mom….And this continues until I’m ready rip my hair out.This is how things go nowMe: pause the game and put your laundry awayChild: but mom…Me: I’m opening the Kasa app…Child: OK! OK! I’m goingI also have a schedule set so it doesn’t even turn in the morning when people should be getting ready for school. After school, it’s scheduled to be off, and once everyone has homework done, we turn it on. The kids know that if I power stuff off from the app, they won’t have a chance to save their game. This is a huge motivator.Keep in mind, if your outlet easily accessible, you can bypass the app by pushing the button on the plug, luckily our outlet is behind the entertainment center and no one can reach it.I also use this if anyone starts fighting over a game. I never knew Minecraft could cause so much fighting between siblings. Now, as soon as I hear fighting, I turn the outlet off. I often hear my kids reminding each othe. “Dude, stop or mom is gonna turn it off!”I have regained control of my household, and it feels great!!!

    I’ve had two of these for almost 2yrs now and they’re great.I love the smart compact design that doesn’t take over too much space. Simple set up and the manual on/of button is very useful. Another great surprised I just discovered is its low standby usage. I used an energy meter with this plugged in and was surprised how little power it required. By itself, the standby power ie in the “off” position, it barely uses 0.3W every 5-15 seconds. In the ON position, the smart plug itself barely uses 0.9W. I use these to control webcams that use significantly more power to extend the battery that powers them. Even the app has gotten better and I like the scheduling options to. All in all, a great value and well designed product. My only gripe would be it could be a tad thinner to allow for room to adjacent outlets in certain power strips.

    This is the first “smart plug” device I have purchased. We have several switches on timers and an older automated lighting system in the house, but I wanted to control some string lights in the porch and since there wasn’t an outlet there we looked for alternatives. Initially we had tried one of those inexpensive remote control outlets. It worked OK for a while, but at times the remote would be unresponsive. At other times the lights would come on or shut off by themselves. We started wondering if perhaps a neighbor had the same type of switch and our signals were interfering.Enter the TP-Link Smart Plug. This is ideal because it only covers one of the receptacles which allows us to continue using the other one. We utilize a few of the Amazon Echo devices in the house so integrating with Alexa was a must. I have a few other TP-Link devices in my home and have been pleased with them, so I figured I’d give this a shot and I’ve been very happy.Setup was easy. I downloaded the Kasa app on my phone, walked through the simple instructions, linked it to Alexa via the Echo app… and done. Setup took maybe three minutes and it worked perfectly the first time and every time since. There are no batteries needed, and no other devices (hubs or other hardware) so all you need is the one Smart Plug, a smartphone or tablet, and wifi. In fact even if you didn’t have wifi you could still control this from a smartphone but you would have to connect to the wifi in the plug itself.Now we can simply ask Alexa to turn the lights on or off and the response time is practically instantaneous. I thought there might be a lag of a second or two when using Alexa but that hasn’t been the case. I can also use my phone to turn the lights on or off (or any device where you have the app installed), or I can set different timers or various scenes if I really want to. However, for our purposes a simple on or off is all we need.Also, the unit does have a button on the side so you can turn the lights on or off manually – but we have the plug buried behind a cabinet so we won’t be using that feature. This is really about as simple as automated lighting can get. I’m very happy and eventually I can see installing some of the hard wired switches in various rooms to allow us even more control over lighting and the ability to ask Alexa to shut off the lights downstairs since asking the kids doesn’t seem to work nearly as well.Based upon my experience I’ll most likely continue going back to TP-Link for our other smart devices since the app is so easy to use and having multiple devices together in one app allows custom scenes and things like vacation mode etc.The only minor (and I do mean minor) negative I can think of is that as of now I do not believe there is a way to dim the lights controlled by the switch. I somewhat understand that since TP-Link has no idea what kind of devices people might plug into it and therefore they wouldn’t want people dimming power to devices that could be harmed by this. However there might be times when having the lights on at only half power would be nice, so just be aware that as of today this is a strictly on or off plug. They could change this down the road with a firmware update perhaps, but I’m not expecting that to happen. If you want to dim your lights, you’ll likely need to invest in one of the hard wired switches that offers that functionality.

    After researching automated light switches and outlets to control my lights, I picked TP-Link because they do not require a separate hub to work. Out of the box, install or plug-in, load the Kasa app and create an account, discover using the Kasa app (connect the device to your WiFi at home) and you’re ready to go.I absolutely LOVE the light switches and the outlet plugs. The online TP-LINK installation videos are awesome; short and concise with clear instructions. These Smart devices work perfectly every time using the Kasa app, Alexa and now the Google Assistant. When the power went out once, the devices automatically reconnected and worked flawlessly. BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!I bought the Amazon Echo Dot – 4 times – and controlled my lights from anywhere in the house simply by speaking to Alexa.Then, as of 3/25/17, Google Assistant got in the action. So now I can also tell my phone “Ok Goggle, turn on the Basement” and the two Smart Plugs (one mini and one original-sized) turn on together since I made a “basement” group to include them both.If you’re buying these Smart Plugs or Smart Switches for the first time, the below info will be helpful to know to avoid asking yourself “why is it not working for me the way people say they do?”1. You need to install the Kasa app and create a user account to operate your devices using your phone/tablet. The Smart devices must be able to connect via the WiFi in your house to be operated remotely (by you not manually touching the device). Although you can still operate the devices manually, you bought these to operate them remotely. The Kasa app let’s you name each Smart device (IMPORTANT: NAME EACH DEVICE AND GROUP AS YOU WANT TO CALL IT OUT USING ALEXA OR GOOGLE ASSISTANT) and create “Scenes” to group multiple Smart devices to turn on/off at the same time. Tapping on the device name in the Kasa app opens the options to set schedules, timers and more.2. Got an Amazon Echo? Install the Alexa app on your phone/tablet, add the Kasa Skill, link the Kasa Skill to your Kasa account (from point #1 above), discover devices, then create Groups – similar to the Scenes in Kasa – and select which devices to include in the group for Alexa to know what you meant to turn on/off at the same time. If you DON’T create groups in the Alexa Skill: A) Simply ask Alexa to turn on/off the individual Smart device name, and… B) Alexa will NOT know which multiple Smart devices to turn on/off at the same time – even though you created a Scene (group) in the Kasa app, key phrase here… “in the Kasa app”. After you create a group name and include Smart devices in the Alexa Skill, you’ll feel like one of The Jetsons, a Star Trek crew member or a millionaire, with the power to command lights on and off using you voice: “Alexa, turn on the Living Room”.3. Got an Android smartphone/tablet with Android version 6.0 or higher? Google began sending upgrades to those devices to install the Android Assistant – the same Artificial Intelligence (AI) used with the Google Home device (the device that competes with Amazon Echo). Here’s the deal, similar to the Alexa Skill, you NEED to enable and setup the Android Assistant using the similar steps I described in topic #2 above: Link it to your Kasa account, create Group names and add Smart devices to the group, etc. To set up your Android Assistant to operate your TP-LINK Smart devices, start by saying “Ok Google, turn on my LIGHTS” – the AI is smart and will prompt you with a bubble for you to setup Google Home interfaces. It’s da bomb!Hopefully this will help you enjoy your TP-LINK Smart devices as much as I do.If you’re thinking “I’m still not sure if I should get these or another brand…” GET THESE!!! You will not regret it. They work great! Also, when I had questions, their customer support was very responsive. The love is definitely there.My goal is to get my entire house upgraded to use only TP-LINK light switches. In time, as the budget allows, it will happen.

    I bought these because a lot of things can be automated, even if it doesn’t seem obvious. I have about 5 or 6 of these in my house. I have my bedroom fan set to turn on at 9pm and off at 6am every day. My lights also come on at 6am so I’m not stumbling through the house in the morning. It’s also really nice to see if you left the light on or anything else when you’re driving away from home to go on vacation. Most people assume these are only necessary if you’re lazy, but there’s a lot more to it. Just a heads up, this will not work on digital things, like TV’s or things with buttons, only switches like fans, lights, and maybe humidifiers/air conditioners. The only complaint I have is that when you lose power, the plug seems to forget the schedule that you have set until you manually unplug it and plug it back in. I live in the country where the power seems to go out about once or twice a month so this is a regular thing for me but I blame my town more than I blame TP-Link
