Good price for a good product - if you actually need 3 of them. TP-Link has been one of the more stable suppliers, and is well-supported by home automation software and services (including a local control api), but it's best not to over-invest in home automation beyond immediate needs with the current chaotic state of the market.

You should probably add 3 pack to the title. I thought it was the price for 1 which would be a terrible deal, but for 3 it's not bad.

Just a headsup that these can't dim very low without flickering issues. I replaced my lutron maestro's with a few of these, and it's not even close.

Great product, decent price.

Kasa is the best option for wifi based smart devices.

Keep feeding the giant and you will not have good prices on anything.
I typically default to Amazon because it gets to me quicker and the returns are so easy to deal with.

But you're right. I should start using the alternatives when the price is right.

I have plenty of these connected to a bunch of different types of bulbs without any flickering issue. Could be compatibility issues with your bulbs.

I hate that they don't make a double or thripple wall plate.

What would they have to charge for it?

You can get standard decora plates in home depot for like $2.

Does Costco have wifi dimmers? I have couple of regular dimmers from Costco and two of them failed.

Mine are connected and working as well, however, there is a calibration for all led switches to determine the low boundary of the dimming. before flickering or strobing occurs. These switches performed much worse than the Lutron Maestros using the same led bulbs. Are your bulbs able to dim completely to the extent that there is barely any light coming out from them?

Some 3 packs and singles in the Amazon Warehouse for even cheaper. I have bought Kasa switches from Warehouse previously without issue - think people sometimes return these when they realize they require a neutral wire.

I have a couple of these with dimmable LED bulbs and pot lights. No issues with flickering either.

I had a whole lutron RadioRA2 system in a previous house that I took out when I moved and none of those dimmers work properly with LEDs because of minimum load requirements...

Glad that these TP-Link units work well, since you can get 5 for the price of 1 RadioRA2 dimmer.
