WiFi Power switch to remotely power cycle your hub $16.18 w/Prime


#1

Sometimes you need to remotely power cycle your hub. (V2 hubs need to remove batteries):


#2

Don’t we want to keep devices transmitting 2.4GHz away form the hub?


#3

Hmm, I heard that too but I guess you could plug this in the wall which should be far enough away from the hub.


#4

Hmm, price shows up as $24.08 for me. I was going to buy it just for the Wifi extender.


#5

Prices tend to fluctuate, sometimes hourly on Amazon.com. Be patient and the price will probably drop again.

Had that happen a couple weeks ago. Wife went to show what she had just ordered and it was $10/ 25% less than she had just paid. For the first time contacting Amazon CS did no good and they refused to match the new price ( even though it had not shipped yet ) or at least give us a gift card for the price difference / inconvenience. Conveniently it was marked as shipped while she was on the phone with them so we could not just cancel and re-order it at new price. Well not unless we wanted to pay $16 shipping to return a $40 item to buy it again for $30.

It’s really infuriating that Amazon will not adjust the price after purchase, especially when the item hasn’t even shipped. In those situations I just say screw them, order the item at the better price and then submit a claim saying the first item is defective so they give you a 100% refund and pay for the return shipping. I figure if this happens to them enough they’ll adjust their policies.

I could have, but not with this item. Hard to say a 20lb box of stuffing for teddy bears was defective LOL

I want to suggest wrong color, but that’s just getting petty… :slight_smile:

If you’re going to pick up a cheap WiFi switch I’d recommend looking at the TP-Link models. There’s a good chance that we offer compatibility with them before the end of the year.

Any chance of iDevices Switch support forthcoming? I got a ton of them for cheap on clearance at HD and would love to be able to use them with ST.


#14

Not on our roadmap right now. I’ll mention it to our Partnership team.

If you guys are using a credit card that has price guarantee coverage, you should use Paribus. They monitor your email and/or Amzon account for purchases, and submit the claim to your CC automatically. Just saved $30 on a Fire tablet we bought in May.

Thanks. I’ll settle for the TP-Links for now. They’re regularly on sale for $19.99 and if you keep your eyes peeled you can sometimes pick them up for $14.99. I’ve got a couple right now I stopped using that I’ve swapped with the iDevices outlets because they work with HomeKit. Once ST integration happens I’ll likely swap the TP-Links back in and pick up a few more.


#17

I remember when they first came out, I had forgotten all about them, thanks for the reminder.


#18

Hi @Tyler,

Which Models of TP-Link are you looking to integrate?


#19

I’d expect to support both the Smart Wi-Fi Plug and the Smart Wi-Fi Light Switch.

Just found this reply to a review ov TP-Link Smart Outlet.

Need to open a port on the router firewall to ensure that TCP port 50443 is open device remote control.
