Any idea the wattage rating of this plug? I tried google with no luck. Globe web site no info. I want to get one to control my heater. So far only tplink has that rating.

No idea

there is the manual

it says 15A (is it enough to calculate wattage?)

At that price range, I highly doubt it. The app reviews are quite high stars (or faked) :)

Yes, that is a basic electrical calculation

120v * 15A = 1800W
Thanks,
When Plugged with nothing plugged, the consumption should be low right? (connection with wifi)

If I plug christmas lights that consumes 100 Watts
Will it consume 100W or its maximum (1800W) ?

It will only pull the amps that the device plugged into it requires. The 1800w is the maximum draw.

You're 100w lights will only pull 100w through the switch.

So how does this connect to my home network? It'll be its own client with a MAC/IP? And then my google home will recognize it and be able to control it?
