  1. James Johnson

    I bought this one because I kept looking for recommendations on the best smart power strip, and this one kept landing at the top of the lists. Really great strip, spacious so you never run into that issue where you can’t use all of your plugs because they’re too close together, easy to set up, and if all else fails, it is a nice sized blunt object which can be used against attackers.It would be neat if the USB plugins were smart too, but otherwise, this is a terrifically quality smart strip. While not the smartest object to ever exist, it is probably significantly smarter than some former presidents I could name (wow, I got political commentary ovah here! And I have left it open to interpretation, so that regardless of your political preference you can pretend I am not very obviously referring to Donald Trump!).

  2. Amy Schoener

    I have so many individual Kasa plugs throughout my home that when these strips went on sale, I bought several to put in places that I need more than one plug. I LOVE them! So easy to set up and they work great! They are expensive but worth it if you are looking for the ease of running a routine or saying “Alexa, turn on/off ……” and having several things work at the same time.

    I bought this to use on my reef tank. I have my return pump, heater, ato, wave makers and protein skimmer connected to it. I have scheduled off/on times for feeding… synced up with my automatic fish feeder times each day. It works great! I can also control individual items within the app on my phone at will.

  4. Lidie

    I must say, this is one very convenient smart power strip that’s worth the price.I focused on making a smart home office and being able to control most of my electrical devices with Alexa.I had previously bought the Alexa smart outlets, but they were to bulky and looked ugly.I bought this strip to see if the outlets worked with Alexa, and they do. They all show up on Alexa so that you can create routines. Will definitely be buying another one in the future.I recommend this.

  5. Dyllan M.

    I was skeptical, I’ve bought a lot of smart-home electronics that I ended up needing to flash with my own written Firmware to make it play well with my other devices on network; however, this device just works. (I don’t use Alexa or Google Home)The device was found in seconds without me pushing a bunch of buttons, and excluding the icon selection, setup was easy.It plays amazing with all the devices on my network, and has been able to handle everything I have thrown at it. I will definitely be buying more

    I use this strip for my two plant cabinets and I love it! Super easy to link to the app and get set up. Very simple to label which outlet does what, group my grow lights, and get them setup to run with sunrise and sunset. Will purchase another when I getore cabinets set up

    This works fine with Alexa, and SmartThings. As with most of these types of Wifi products, you do need to download the Kasa app for the initial set up. Since I have other Kasa devices, as soon as I added this plug strip, my Alexa announced that it had found it and it was ready for use. There are push buttons by each outlet to switch manually, or if your internet is down. The USB outlets are not controllable and are just always on. I’ve had it online for about 7 months now and have not had it drop out.

  8. Andy Castille

    I connected it to WiFi using kasa-cli and got in showing up in Home Assistant in under 2 minutes. The ability to control each port and view power usage and current draw individually is perfect. Would love to see an 8-port version.

    I got this mainly to monitor power drain. Sure, some plugged-into-the-wall devices work to that end, but either you have to scooch down to the outlet to see it, or put it on an extension cord and then it’s still far too unwieldy. With this, you can just open the Kasa app and see what the wattage is real time, plus see kWh of daily and long term use. That’s just nice.Also just having the switches there on the strip to turn items on and off individually is great. Especially good if you have a computer you like to put into hibernate. The lightest wind gust against the mouse and it’s right back on again. Not anymore! Heh heh.My only real complaint is that, like a lot of “smart” devices like (scales, lightbulbs, etc.), it only uses 2.4GHz, not 5GHz. Fine if you’re in a house surrounded by nothing, but if you’re in an apartment, hoo boy, better make sure you’re not sharing WiFi channels with anyone. There’s tools for monitoring who’s using what nearby, and as long as you use your own router, changing those settings are easy. Still, idk why they can’t use 5GHz. Why do some devices do that? Why do so many still use Micro-B USB plugs/ports?Other than that, I have no complains. Highly recommend.

    Why is it great for tinkerers/homelabs you may ask?It’s a power strip that’s regularly on sale for $45. You may think that’s a lot for a power strip, but once you realize that it has not only INDIVIDUAL CONTROL on each outlet, but also power monitoring on each outlet? That’s an INSANE feature to have.Currently, I have one on a 3D printer. It controls the printer itself, the light, and the monitor (which doesn’t always have to be on) – the ability to see a rough estimate (I haven’t verified the accuracy of the power usage) of the power usage, and integrate with OctoPrint to automatically turn the printer and light on/off is amazing. I ordered a second one to use for the server rack and be able to monitor the power usage of the core network (Modem, Router, Switch) as well as a quick “remote reboot” for them all.It’s plastic, so it’s not the most sturdy power strip ever. WiFi signal is actually pretty good, never had communication issues with it even when other devices struggle. The firmware is old enough that it can be directly accessed/toggled, though this isn’t guaranteed to be the case for long – the smart plug minis have been updated (so I hear) to disable it due to security concerns, who knows if that affects or will be applied to this.Sure, you can get more open ones, or even ones that work better with your setup. But for the price, and the feature set, I’d 100% recommend this hidden gem just because it has much more than you expect at first glance. But only on sale, I don’t believe it’s worth the full price of $80.
