TP-Link Unveils Smart Plug with Energy Meter Compatible with Amazon Echo
TP-Link’s Wi-Fi Smart Plug with Energy Monitoring (HS110) enables consumers to control devices wherever they are in the world
Reading, Berkshire, UK - Nov. 1st, 2016 - 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, available for Android and iOS.
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 creating a seamless connected experience. Half of all householders consider the ability to control their home’s lighting remotely an attractive feature, a study suggests.¹
