[Amazon.ca] Wifi controlled power strip - $18.99

For anyone looking for a Wifi Controlled power strip, this is a great deal. I have 4 of these strips and they all work excellently. Full Alexa, Google & IFTTT integration and they work with the Smart Life suite of apps. This is the same strip as the other ones on Amazon, that are selling for $38, like this one here - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0796S4QJY/

EDIT: Regular price is 28.99, but with 10$ coupon on the product page, it reduces to 18.99 in cart

It works with a wide range of apps, including Smart Life, TuyaSmart, eHome Cloud, etc
This is the one I use - iOS - Android

As seifer333 mentioned, this seller seems to be having a bunch of deals including this Smart Plug for 2$ - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B074P2F9XM/

When you buy this kind of smart devices or IOT, you probably may want to buy it from a well-known company or any companies will last. If the company goes out of business in the future, then the apps will stop working immediately and your device cannot be controlled remotely via Wifi anymore.

The seller seems in the process of taking down the coupon as I can see the coupon keep appearing and disappearing (which is normally a sign for a coupon is in the process of disabling it), so place your order asap.

If you don't see the coupon, go to the "Special offers and product promotions" section and clip it from there.

Not a lot of reviews though, so buyer's beware

Update: I believe the coupon for "Smart Plug" probably has permanently disabled now, but the coupon for the "Power strip" still occasionally show up.

Keep refreshing, if you are lucky, you may get it since the data still hasn't sync up to all cloud database server.

This is precisely the reason I prefer Z-Wave (and to a lesser degree, ZigBee) devices. They will keep working long after the manufacturer goes belly up.

And even if you buy from a "reputable" company, they can still affect the product YOU paid for. See the story of the Harmony Link, which Logitech bricked via firmware update when they didn't feel like supporting it anymore: https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker ... ed-bricked. Only after public outcry did they are to replace the device with a newer model. Or, see how Nokia removed features that customers paid for from their Withings scale: https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker ... re-removed.

Maybe I shouldn't say "reputation". A company, with good administration and showing good business practice responsible for its customers, is also reliable. A company with good reputation usually carries this characteristic.

Backward compatibility is another issue with a new OS and hardware rollout almost every year. However, if a company is still in business, then they will still try to support it if it is feasible. Otherwise, it will impact the reputation of the company and the sales of its future product. Sometimes, it is very hard to support the previous version of hardware or software with the new interfaces considering the effort of retesting them. Sometimes, the bug from the older version cannot be resolved unless you use the new interfaces. There are many factors a company obsoletes its older device, but most of them are technical related issues instead of business issues. If the device is cheap, you won't lose much even if the business is quitted. However, for those expensive devices, better to pay a little more buying from a company with good reputation.
