Looks like TP Link is selling a lot of its accessories. In time for Thanksgiving drop?

I mentioned this the last time this deal came up - I have the outdoor and I'm using it to powercycle my Modem and Router in sequence every morning. Works great.

I don’t want to buy tplink smart products anymore, my Asus ax86u router complains he can’t afford more than 10 Kasa products.

In for one - thx OP seems like a good deal. Similar price to the non-smart ones CT/HD sells. Hope it works in the cold for plugging the car in.

I have this exact one and it works great. Even added to the SmartThings network and control from there. Takes a bit of patience adding it to the network but afterwards very straightforward setting up. I think I'll pick up another one. BTW, the outlet cover is loose, so don't lose it!

I'm guessing Tplink is dumping their current line of smart home devices (dimmers, switches, plugs, bulbs, power bars, etc.) in preparation of greater Thread support that's coming down the pipe?

I've had good experience with their dimmers, wall switches, and smart plugs including this outdoor one. But I picked up two sets of smart RGB bulbs when they were on sale a couple weeks ago and I've been having connectivity issues with all 4 bulbs. Over time (usually overnight) they become non-responsive in the Kasa app and the only way I can fix it is to turn off the bulb manually and turn it back on so it reconnects to the wifi. I don't think it's a wifi issue because all my other tplink dimmers, switches and plugs are not disconnecting. Just the bulbs. Anyway off topic... Tplink products are generally very good but you do need good wifi coverage for all the devices to stay connected.

Does Tplink powerstrip allows you to reboot what ever plug, you have connected to it, using their software?

I used a Kasa KS100 outdoor on the condo balcony to power my Christmas lights the past Holiday season - worked great and survived. I had it covered up with plastic and placed below a table to prevent rain/snow from getting on it. But ya the outdoor version is more appropriate to use.

TP Link has a Kasa app that you add all Kasa devices to (to power up, down, or set a timer).

It would be convenient if it had the ability to reboot devices connected it. I was looking forward to it in buying it. I wanted my modem connected to it and have that reboot ability. I wonder if there are any of these wifi power plug that has the capability to do it.

If the powerstrip works the same way as the outdoor smart plugs, then each outlet will show up individually in the Kasa app, allowing you to control individual plugs on the power strip.

It does. By reboot, you just mean the plug turns off, then turns back on, right? I'm pretty sure you can automate that in the Kasa app. For sure you can do it if you have the device integrated into SmartThings/HA/Homebridge...

turning off/on is only set by schedule right? Once you turn it off manually, you can't manually turn it back on using the phone software, if i'm targeting my modem to turn off, right?

I bought it two weeks ago and it was $1 cheaper. It works great so far.

The bulbs have connectivity issues and if you use the auto "circadian" mode they will stop responding to google/home and alexa.

Is this quad core 1.8ghz router having trouble handling more than 10 kasa products?

I don't understand what that means.

If your router can't connect to more than 10 devices it should be put in the bin.
