Worried you left the iron on at home? Or that you've had to leave the games console plugged in, as the socket's too tricky to reach? With the TP-Link KP105 Kasa Wireless Smart Socket you can turn appliances on or off, from wherever you are. It doesn’t matter that you’re not at home - or that you can't reach behind the sofa. Just log into the Kasa app and flick the switch remotely. It's slick, compact design means you can plug it in without blocking adjacent sockets too.
But this smart plug doesn’t just turn appliances on and off… You can set schedules to control your appliances and even use the timer function to limit how long an appliance is on for.
You don’t need to call out an electrician or change your plug sockets to get started

A remote control for your appliances
Return home in the evening to the lights already on or the slow cooker warming up your dinner. Use the app to create schedules and control your appliances. Set a timer to turn the heated airer off after an hour. Schedule the hall lamp to switch off at bedtime. Or log in at any time to check whether your family have left any devices plugged in.
Peace of mind when you’re not home
Switch on the ‘away’ mode when you’re on holiday, for added security. This programmes your appliances to turn on randomly throughout the day. So it looks like you’re at home, even when you’re not. There’s also a handy countdown timer. So you can put a time limit on how long the electric heater is switched on – for extra reassurance.
Easy to set-up and manage
The smart plug works on your home’s WiFi network, and it’s ready to go as soon as it’s connected. Control appliances using the Kasa app or go hands-free when you’re in the home using a voice-activated device, like the Amazon Echo or Google Home instead. Connect one or several plugs around the home for different appliances – and manage them all through the app.
“Alexa, turn off the iron”
Use your voice or the touchscreen to control appliances around the home with the Amazon Echo Show 8. Left the fan on? Ask Alexa to turn it off – no need to run upstairs or find your phone. The Echo connects to other smart home appliances too. So you can manage your smart lighting, heating and security with your voice too. Simply ask Alexa to show you who’s at the front door. Or to turn up the thermostat. Or to dim the lights for your family movie night.
