TP-Link will collect information about the devices connected to the plugs (Point 2.3). They may collect IP address, location, mobile device information, user name, email address, shipping address, log-in and password details [!!], communications via phone calls, e-mail, social media, … the list is extensive and alarming (Point 4). Not only will TP-Link be allowed to use such information itself, it is also allowed to transfer such information to third parties (Point 5.2). Furthermore, customer information may be transferred to parties that may acquire TP-Link in the future (Point 5.4).
One buys a wifi-enabled plug to connect to one’s devices to power supply remotely. It must be able to manufacture plugs that do just that without requiring an app to set up. More importantly, there is no reason for the plug to collect so much information from its customers. There is even less justification for them to pass our personal information to third parties. Whether or how they may be able to collect such information is secondary. I cannot grant them permission to do so.
Therefore I intend to return the product.
I deliberated quite a bit over buying these smart plugs (with my own money I hasten to add, I am not in any review program like Vine). I own some of the Kasa ones and they have worked flawlessly for a long time, so I thought that I would continue to trust TP Link. The biggest thing that attracted me to the Tapo ones was the price. When I purchased them the Kasa plugs were about £25 with a minimum order quantity of 2. The Tapo ones were more or less half the price! As for the quality they feel just as well made and I don’t feel like the Kasa ones are any better. As for the functionality it is pretty much identical to Kasa with the added extra of sharing control with family and friends. I don’t see any reason to buy Kasa anymore and will get the Tapo ones for half the price. Basically Tapo is like your Tesco value and Kasa is your Tesco Finest (other supermarkets are also available). There is no real difference in the contents just a different name and packet. These are really good value and if all you want to do is switch power to something then buy these over Kasa. If you want lots of smart things in your home then Kasa has a more established and bigger product range.
• So easy to set up my cat could do it.
• Low price compared to the sister brand Kasa.
• Build quality equal to Kasa.
• Function just as well as the Kasa plugs.
• Neat and small compared to Kasa.
• Discreet power light (I find Kasa too bright at night).
• WiFi range seems just as good as Kasa.
• They maintain all settings if power is lost (for example moving to a new plug socket or mains power failure).
• The switching noise (on/off click) is quieter than Kasa.
• App feels fresher and more modern than Kasa.
• Small packaging made of mostly card which reduces waste and environmental impact.
• The plug name that you set in the Tapo app does not carry across to Google Home (It does to Alexa though). You have to name it again in the Google Home app because it just says Tapo plug and the model number etc. Kasa drags the name right into the Google Home app.
• The manual on/off switch is hidden on the side and may be difficult to reach in certain situations.
• Not as established as Kasa yet. Kasa has more products in the range.
• No iOS widget for quick access and I presume Android may be the same.
• They won’t remember if they were on or off after a power cut. This means they default to off when the power comes back on which is something to be aware of. Kasa does remember if they were on before a power failure.
** UPDATE **
AFTER TESTING THESE FOR A FEW MONTHS THEY HAVE ALL GONE BACK FOR A FULL REFUND. ALL 4 I OWN CONSTANTLY DISCONNECT AND SHOW AS UNAVAILABLE. KASA NEVER DISCONNECT SO WHY DO THESE?! PAY A BIT MORE AND BUY THE KASA ONES. THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY CHEAP FOR A REASON.
1) Size. They are small - smaller than the Kasa ones, about the size of one of those old multi-plug things that you used to get in the 1970s where you could plug three plugs into one socket. This means you can get more than one in a double wall socket or extension lead.
2) Sunrise\Sunset. This is really great. We have a light in the hall that we want to come on when it gets dark. Before getting these we had to manually adjust the timer every few weeks to take account of the sunrise\set times. This thing allows you to program it to come on a number of minutes\hours before or after sunrise or set.
And lots of reasons why they are so good:
1) The TAPO app is clean and easy to use
2) It's a doddle to set up. Bluetooth is used only for setup - which might seem like overkill - but it does make the setting up of them a doddle
3) It's so much easier to set up timers on a phone app than on a dedicated timer plug
4) You can switch them on from anywhere in the world - well, anywhere where you get a mobile phone signal. And you can tell if they're on or off from anywhere too.
5) "OK Google, switch on the hall plug". Again, easy to set up in Google Home.
6) The instruction sheet says that you can plug an iron in with them. So, if you've ever wanted to switch your iron on whilst you're on a night out you can! All that's needed now is a remote ironing app. An iron! Why do they suggest an iron?
And the two (valid) reasons you might not want one:
1) No geocaching. So you can't get things to turn off when you (or your mobile phone) leaves the house.
2) No IFTTT. So you can't get things to turn off when you lea... Or do other cool stuff. But IFTTT is for those who love to do cool stuff - this is a simple bit of consumer electronics.
Finally, they're not Kasa compatible - which means I've got 178 apps on my phone instead of 177. First. World. Problems :-)?
