Description

Why we like the TP-Link Smart Plug Mini

TP-Link is one of the more popular brands for tinkerers and computer-people. But their home automation game has also been very strong in the past 5 years. At the head of the pack is there great line of smart plugs which we would argue are the best in the industry if you just want a plug that works. The TP-Link Smart Plug Mini ticks all of our main boxes for a smart plug and should keep pace with anything else you will find and keeps it in a nice compact form factor.

Voice Assistant Compatibility

The TP-Link Smart Plug Mini works out of the box with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. We have tested it for over 6 months on Google Assistant and it hasn’t had even a single hiccup controlling a basic Ikea lamp. Of course the amount of voice control options is really limited to on/off here so don’t expect the world. But it certainly works well. We have a nickname for the plug programmed into the Google Home app called “Livingroom lights” so it does recognize when I tell it to turn off the lights instead of the plug. Very handy indeed.

Other Compatibility

IFTTT is fully supported as well as other platforms like Stringify. Probably the most useful thing here is to build scenes in Stringify to be able to include your smart plug in an overall macro of some kind. The plug also is compatible with the “Works With Nest” program so you can link it into the automatic Home/Away modes in the Nest platform. This could be really handy for making sure your plug turns off when you leave the house.

Extra features

The TP-Link Smart Plug Mini works through the TP-Link Kasa app which is already pretty good even though it only just came out of beta. You can program a schedule for the plug as well as set scenes if you have multiple TP-Link Kasa products. The plug is also very low profile. It is slim so it doesn’t take up 2 whole plugs. In fact, you can fit two of these plugs on a single socket. This is a great feature. Also, there is a physical button on the side of the plug if you need to go old school for some reason. You can usually find its larger big brother, the TP-Link HS100, in stores for a bit cheaper, but we wholeheartedly recommend the mini simply because it frees up one of your outlets.

Conclusion

Overall this is one of the more rock solid performers in our smart home setup right now. It responds almost instantaneously to Google Assistant commands and has generally been a breeze to setup and work with. This is a highly recommended smart home plug.

    The TP-Link HS105 Smart Plug is great Add-On. This is a great item to pair with a Google Mini or Google Max. With this Smart Plug you can turn your light on or off or anything plugged into it by way of your Google speaker, turn it on or off with your phone, and also create a schedule for the future. You can even use it as a timer. It is very convenient to be able to turn on a light from outside when the living room is dark, or from your bed when you don’t feel like searching for the switch. If you have a Google Mini or Google Max, you absolutely need to get one of these, or two or more for other rooms or items.

    Easy to install and reliable (so far). Using it to switch off a garage door lift motor when out of town. Eliminates the possibility of an accidental or malicious door opening.

    Would not purchase this. Will not connect. No troubleshooting available and all seems to be installed correctly.

    Like the HS100 but better. Prior to using the HS105, I was using the HS100 which I love. It is THE solution for Alexa integration. Now I have to add the HS105 to that recommendation as well. In fact, it is even better as the HS105 only takes up one wall outlet leaving the other open for use. The HS100 and HS110 both block the other outlet preventing its use. The HS105 is directly integrated with Alexa and can be configured to work locally or remotely, if you want to operate it while away. The setup process could not be easier. The TP-Link Kasa application walks you through the setup process. It will also allow you to configure a schedule for when to turn 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 these to Wemo, they are more stable. I’ve not had any connection issues with these whereas I have had a couple with Wemo, especially when unplugging the device from the wall. This review was submitted as part of a free sample program.

    Easy to Use, Reliable. This switch is easy to use and works perfectly. It is very easy to install and setup. I was able to pair it with Alexa by going into the setting in the KASA app for the device and toggle the “Remote” button. The switch is versatile. it can be programmed to turn on and off on schedule, it can be remotely turned on and off. You can still manually turn it on/off. It only takes one of the outlet/receptacle space and keeps the other outlet free for some other use. The away mode was helpful when I connected the lamp to the switch and it turned on and off the lamp randomly which simulate someone is home. I haven’t had any issue after it was setup. The switch is pretty reliable. I love this product. Now, I can control the connected device remotely using KASA app. Overall, I am very happy with the switch. I recommend the switch to others. Submitted as part of a free sample program.
