These plugs are NOT meant to open close your garage. You need something like MyQ module connected to control your garage via smart phone or remotely.
100% agree. There specific switch/plug/button for it.

watts = PF × amps × volts = 1 x 10 x 110 = ?

10 Amp on this HS103 vs. 15 Amp on the HS105 is the difference.

Technically TP-Link website [kasasmart.com] shows 12amp but when you look at watts it states 1200W resistive load at 120V. So in reality 10 amp max. They should really not play this stupid game to try to increase their numbers for marketing purposes and let someone accidentally burn their house down. I would rather play it safe and use the 15A HS105 for anything above 7A and not chance it since you don't know what the startup load on most appliances are. Personally I use the HS110 for my heaters so I can watch the power consumption when I turn it on remotely to make sure it's not burning my house down but I may be paranoid after watching a cheap no-name one break in front of me when I used it with a heater well below its specifications.

I would say good deal, however amazon have wifi plugs that if you buy a 4 pack, they are 7.50 each. I have used 3 different companies so far and they all have worked well.

These do not have energy monitoring.
Thanks for the info. Can you tell me where you got that info? Or do you own some? I couldn't find anything on the tp-link website.

Which one is recommended for printer. I would like to control the power to printer to turn on only when needed and then turn off remotely
for ink jet, either one,

for laser printer, neither one.

why are you turning off the power to your printer. The idle power usage for the smart switch is going to be about the same as the sleep power for your printer, AND you will have to turn the printer power back on again after each power cycle (unless it is really old with a toggle switch).

I hope you realize, that in most of the cases that a heater would burn your house down, the power level wouldn't change. Heaters generally run close to the breaker limit anyway so if it started to draw a ton of power you would pop a breaker. What usually starts a fire is the inability to exhaust the heat the heater is producing at normal power, i.e. covered, tipped over, fan stops working, and generally a heater will also have thermal switches and tip sensors to help prevent this as well.

Are they good for power supply to the garage gate opener. I want to control that when I am away from the home.
you need to be careful using a smart switch with a motor load. They will likely say they are not rated for inductive or motor loads but you should make VERY sure.

I'm not worried about the heater, I'm worried about this switch, exactly because most heaters have those kinds of protections. There are plenty of horror stories about these types of switches, especially the no name ones.

Just to be clear, I want to just toggle the power supply to the garage door. Not actually open/close it. It won't work for even that?

Got it, thanks. So the idle power usage of smart switch is going to be same as sleep power of printer. I was thinking that smart switch is capable to be turned off completely instead of idle.

would these be good to power on/off a security camera like wyze, or turn on portable air conditioner?
