PRESS RELEASE

TP-Link’s Wi-Fi Smart Plug with Energy Monitoring enables consumers to control devices wherever they are in the world

Homeowners can now control connected devices with their voice or the swipe of a finger wherever they are in the world, thanks to a new smart plug from TP-Link, a leading global provider of reliable networking solutions.

The TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug With Energy Monitoring (HS110) can give the impression a house is occupied, control lights and electronic devices to come off and on as needed, and provide added reassurance for homeowners on holiday or at work.
 

Householders can also control the smart plug at the touch of a screen via TP-Link’s free Kasa app, which is compatible with Apple and Android devices.

The smart plug also works with Amazon Echo*, the e-tailer’s hands-free voice activated hub, which features Alexa the personal assistant. 

TP-Link smart plugs are reliable, cost-effective, simple to use and easy to add to a home network to create a seamless connected experience. Half of all householders find remote control of their home’s lighting attractive, a study suggests.¹

The HS110 can also analyse a house’s real-time and historic energy consumption. It complements the TP-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug (HS100) which comprises the same features, minus energy monitoring.

Will Lui, country manager at TP-Link UK Ltd, comments: “Time-pressed householders want simple, cost-effective solutions that enable them to organise their busy lives when away from home. TP-Link’s smart Wi-Fi plugs provide peace of mind wherever they are in the world.”
