I use these. Certainly not cheap but you get a heap of sensors in one package plus it can run on either battery or 5V supply. I have all of mine plugged into power supplies. They respond super fast and being powered means they act as ZWave repeaters as well. My ZWave network is rock solid and crazy fast.
Looks like my trusty KP115 are almost impossible to get now. I’m seeing mixed reports on local access for the Tapo P110 but the time frames for those posts vary. Can anyone provide a summary on the current status of those plugs?
I found the same thing last weekend. Have been very happy with my Kasa plugs.
I got two of the Tapo P110 and using the Tapo Controller through HACS. It works well locally but the integration warns:
Although the integration works using LAN, the tapo device needs internet access to synchronize with tapo cloud, especially for credentials, a missing internet access could lead into “Invalida authentication error”. Also a static IP must be set for device.
Hi All, just wondering what the recommended/best quad GPO is to interface to Homeassistant? Would only be powering a power dock for a laptop, a laptop, 2 x monitor and a sound bar. My missus is paranoid about fire and turns everything off at the wall switch. So I am setting up some smarts on the house with Homeassistant. And one of them being the ability to turn all my office equipment back on in the morning automatically.
Mercator has a Quad ‘Ikuu’ GPO. 4 individually switched outlets…does power monitoring also, but only on each ‘pair’ of outlets, not all 4 individually.
I don’t have one, but I do have a number of the light switches and downlights, all of which come into HA just nicely
Note - AVOID WIFI stuff where possible , go zigbee - zigbee is platform independent
Thanks! I have a Zwave coordinator (hub? whatever the stick is called!) and TBH while I only have a couple of Zwave sensors they seem far more reliable than my Zigbee ones (which vary from ok to very good). I wasn’t even aware there was a Zwave option so thanks for drawing my attention to it!
There are a bunch, aside from the Aqara (mentioned below - I have one and it’s quite good), a number of motion sensors include a light sensor. Two I can think of are the Hue and some versions of the Aqara motion sensor. I have no idea how accurate any of them are but they are good enough for most purposes I think.
