[Amazon.ca] TP-Link Kasa WiFi Dimmer Light Switch (HS220) - 3 Pack - $69.99

Was looking for a few of these and found it on amazon (the buy box is not amazon but some third party FBA, so you have to "see other offers" to find amazon - the link should work).

3-pack for $70.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07HGS ... EEQB&psc=1

The cheapest these have been is $24.99 each and at one point, the 3-pack was also $70.

Edit: as per below, cheapest was $59.99 for the 3 pack.

I had done a quick search and didn't find any deal posted for that price. Either way, this is $10 more or $3.33 more per each. No biggie.

Actually it’s been $70 since December, when I bought 5 packs. Then it went down to $60 in January and I got a price adjustment for all of them.

Yup. I seen the threads but they are all expired. Bestbuy is $80.

Maybe I should've said "deal is back?".

I have 2 of these and they don’t flicker. I use one with pot lights and the other with a 3 bulb ceiling light.

I have these dimmers controlling both LED panel pot lights and older pot light housings with either halogens or LED bulbs and I've not experienced any flickering.

If you are getting flickering, ensure that the bulbs you have installed are actually dimmable.

Flicker is caused by an interaction between LED bulbs and the electronic dimmer. It can occur with any combination. You can't predict that it will or won't occur with any specific model of dimmer, it depends on your bulbs. Since it's usually cheaper and easier to change the bulbs than the dimmer, that's what most people do.

I just got this and I get a buzz below 100% but apa a flicker when it turns on (flashes at high brightness at start)

Supposedly from other reviews that means I have a floating neutral and need to better improve that

So i was replacing my switch with HS220, I opened it up and i found the neutral, 1 load and 2 hot wire. No ground. Why would I see 2 hot wire (line)???? Tried connecting the two line wire together and it doesn't work. Although, i found 3 neutral wire on the back of the box and undid and used only one. Later found instructions and the person was twisting the neutral from the switch to the 3 wires.

My guess is:
from breaker: 1 line and 1 neutral.
to lamp: 1 load and and 1 neutral.
to next down-circuit junction box: 1 hot and 1 neutral.

total: 2 line/hot (should be connected together), 1 load, 3 neutrals (should be connected together).
