[Amazon Canada] TP Link HS200 Switch - $24.99 (Prime only)

Noticed the TP Link HS200 is on sale again on Amazon for $24.99. Not the all time lowest (believe that was $19.99 around Boxing Day 2017) but still a pretty good price, plus these should qualify for the current 8% Ebates.

I have a bunch of these and they work great, including with Homebridge if you’re so inclined.

Also have 8 of these that I got at the same price (along with the 8 free Google home mini) just before Christmas.

As other mentionned, they often go on sale for 25 if you need more.

I was hoping for a great network switch, instead it's this non-sense again. I'm not even sure this is that good a price.

Nope, I'm in the same boat, townhouse built in the 70s, no C (power) wire.

I just went with Lutron Caseta for that very reason...plus in the end I wanted dimming on at least a few lights, and the cost wasn't that different (minus the hub, which I got on sale as part of a starter kit on boxing day).
I am the Stig's brother's cousin's friend's former roommate.

It’s not a C wire. It’s a neutral wire most are missing. Sometimes some houses have neutral wire tucked back in the box not used.

I ended up using smart bulbs instead.

C wire is what you need for most smart thermostats. It's a common wire that allows 24v power. What you're missing is the neutral. This would be what was called a switch loop, and under new code rules, this particular thing can't be done due to its lack of neutral.
