Yeah, but I don't have a Quantum Tunnel to time travel.

This is a good deal. I'm going to pick up a couple of these today. Thanks

Yup, certainly agree as I bought two HS200 and received two Google minis. Already installed and working great. Am facing the problem of too much bulk/wires in one of the installations though. Right now it's sticking out almost an inch! It's the new ghetto high tech look :)

Gotta wonder if anyone ever paid for a google mini.

Genius strategy though. Eavesdropping on millions of homes.

Bought one, looks and works great.
All my other switches are zwave but at that price it's worth going wifi with the rest of my regular switches. Now waiting for the dimmer to go on sale.

Bought 1 with free google mini. Already got burned by going all out with 12 GE link lights and an Almond router a few years ago. System was unreliable. Early adoption woes. If this TP-Link smart switch proves itself to be 100% up-time reliable I will build on it.

I have 12 of them and adding another 12 right away. No issues. But I also have 2 Google on hubs

I've had one for around 6 months and it's been very reliable. The switch is a bit bulky and it doesn't fit perfectly in my wall box so the faceplate sticks out a bit.

But I have it set up with IFTTT and Alexa and it works great.

I have two light switches to control one light. Could I replace one of the light switches with this and still use the other one? TIA.

Your talking about a 3 way setup. You need the 3 way switch from TP-Link which comes with 2 switches (you only need to use one per 3 way setup). I think it's at a historical low of $65 right now

Hey you need a three way switch, which they also make but is more expensive. They sell them in 2 packs, but only one of the switches needs to be smart, the other one can be a regular one.
