Bought this a few weeks ago at the same price from a thread here. Still unopened waiting for a use.

I plan on plugging in my modem to one outlet and wifi router to another to schedule a weekly reboot. TV to a third for alexa voice control and fire stick 4k to a usb port.

Edit: I confirmed the strip will follow preset schedules even if the internet is down.

Is there a reason they seem to charge so much more for a more basic feature (power monitoring). I like kaza use a few of them but I actually prefer it for the Power Monitoring system.

I'm wondering if I should maybe change to another company.

In my opinion, TP-Link is hands down the best brand in the automation space right now. They have a huge product line, frequent sales, and great support/updates. I have many of their products integrated into my Smartthings and they've been flawless.

Good to know. I just wish they had power Monitoring on more their devices as I enjoy that part a lot.

Can the 3 outlets be controlled separately?

I can't access the admin panel remotely in my Archer C3150 unless I am using it to manage the networks DHCP...

There is no "reboot". It is power off or power on.
If you power off your WiFi router the power bar will not be connected to the network and will not know to turn on.

LoL I used to have to do that with my Netgear and Asus routers, and modem, however, since getting a ubiquiti edge router Ex, i have over 690 days of nonstop uptime, full history of performance, etc. No reboots. Just trying to put it out there, if you yourself can or know someone that can, setup a good high performance router.

Otherwise, great deal, I hook these up to cameras and Android tv boxes in case they misbehave.

Keep in mind, whatever you're using to trigger the scheduled on offs for the modem and router doesn't require the internet.

My SmartThings hub for example stops working when I disconnect the modem or router using this solution, hence why I upgraded to ubiquity edge router Ex so I don't have to ever reboot again. But of course, if you have something that triggers without the internet, then that's the more quick and economical solution.

Are smart plugs safe to use on small appliances? For example a dehumidifier? I worry about any wear and tear on the unit if it's powered on/off on a schedule. This would simulate if I pull the plug, as opposed to manually turning the power off.

When rebooting the modem are you not supposed to unplug all the Ethernet cables first and then only plug them in once the modem has fully rebooted?

I have a wired mesh system and I find that if I don’t unplug, reboot and plug back in a specific order, my wifi won’t necessarily work 100% of the time.

I actually haven't tried it yet but was hoping the schedule would continue to function without internet. I'll have to test to see.

thinking more about this, this won't work, you turned wifi off, now your smart plugs are in disconnected state, how do you turn these back on? Maybe I am missing something.

I don't think I would have an issue setting up a better router. My modem and router work decently most of the time but there have been times when there has been a power out and not all my devices reconnect nicely. I guess my router coming back online faster than the modem re-establishes a connection can cause problems. It hasn't become a big enough bother for me yet to spend a new router :)
