A bit late to this party but here’re some examples to help you. I use smart plugs made by iHome for the following:blackston3 wrote: ↑Aug 12th, 2018 10:48 amWhat do you guys use smart-plugs for?
Most tools, devices, and electronics all have a switch or power button that needs to pressed to turn on. So if I activate the smartplug to turn on wirelessly, the electronics connected to it still have to be pressed manually to get turned on, right?

I'm not sure if you answered Blackstones question. Sure you can set the wifi plug on timer but dont you have to toggle the power button on for the devices? I cant turn on the fan or my Danny ac without power ahead of time.vancityguy0 wrote: ↑Aug 16th, 2018 4:17 amA bit late to this party but here’re some examples to help you. I use smart plugs made by iHome for the following:
1. Portable A/C (Danby 14k btu bought from Costco)
2. Floor fan
3. Bedroom Power Strip (connected a few chargers here. )
4. Home office Power Strip
5. Home theatre Power Strip
1 & 2 are turned on per schedule, 30 minutes before sunrise, to keep the south east facing side of the house cool for summer.
3 to 5 turn on/off on a fixed schedule to conserve power.
The plugs also have an energy meter built in to track Power usage and to help manage energy costs.

Couldn't get them to work, as in they were not functioning once configured or could not configure them? These are just Tuya devices which seem to have support in HA, so your statement is worrisome because I'm hoping to use them in HA once I manage to find them.

Yes but does not stop anyone from issuing a reset and taking down all your smart switches. Just does not seem like this was thought out.
