TP-Link HS110 Smart Plug

The TP-Link HS110 is a WiFi Smart Plug with energy monitoring capability. You can remotely switch connected appliance on or off and also monitor the appliance’s energy consumption. It is great for those plugs that are hidden and out-of-sight (e.g. TV console).

I managed to get it via Amazon Prime Now (Singapore) for S$29 after a S$20 discount coupon (“VISA20”). Most brick-and-mortar stores are retailing for S$65.

In the package, you will find:

The build of TP-Link HS110

The TP-Link HS110 with UK-style electrical pins.

I got the UK plug model which shouldn’t differ much from other variants except for the pin/ connector, voltage and support for wireless channels.

The TP-Link HS110 Smart Plug should be slim enough not to obstruct anything when used on a double socket.

The TP-Link HS110 WiFi Smart Plug is generally made of plastic except for the electrical connectors. It fits well in both my single and double socket outlets without obstructing other electrical sockets or being obstructed by walls.

The round button allows you to toggle the power to the connected appliance. It is also the status indicator. The rectangular setup button on top allows you to initiate wireless pairing or reset the smart plug.

On the front face of the TP-Link HS110 WiFi Smart Plug, there is a physical button for toggling the power to the connected appliance. With this, you can manually switch on or off your appliance without going through the TP-Link Kasa app.

Behind this button are the status indicators for WiFi and power state. The indicators glow thru the translucent button.

At the top of the smart plug is the settings button. It allows you to initiate the WiFi configuration process or reset the it to factory defaults.

The TP-Link HS110 Smart Plug has user changeable fuse. It supports up to 13A.

The TP-Link HS110 WiFi Smart Plug has a fuse to provide overcurrent protection.
