Not a big fan of TP-Link's smart switches. Constant disconnects over the past year or so that I've had them. I hope these smaller newer models are better with respect to connectivity.
Never had issues with them. I'm running into the problem of not wanting to have multiple brands of smart plugs.

The thing with all "smart devices" is most have their own ecosystem so if you start going down the smart rabbit hole you better make sure you like the ecosystem in terms of flexibility with number/types of devices, privacy, and how long is that ecosystem going to be around.

Most the cheap chinese junk is well junk, because there is zero uniformity or those one-off apps/companies aren't going to be around. The cheap stuff is fine if you plan on only using 1 or 2 devices but as soon as you start buying a lot of smart stuff it isn't worth it go to cheapest route possible.

Yes TP-link is also a chinese company but at least they have been around so I think these are better plugs than the non-name brand smart plugs for half the price you can find on amazon. Yes they probably sell your data just like everyone else such as Google Nest, Amazon Ring, Netgear Arlo, and Samsung smart things.

Also another to thing to be mindful of is that most of these wifi smart devices use cheap wifi N chips (that is wifi 4 standard, WPA2) which most likely won't have the same security standards in next few years when WPA3 is the new security standard.

It would be nice if smart devices came with replaceable usb wifi chips so we you can keep using the same smart plug and upgrade the wifi chip via usb to maintain security standards. But we live in the consumer age where everything is disposable.

Yes there is zig-bee and Z-wave which probably make better smart devices than wifi, but are not used or mainstream yet because most people are familiar with WiFi and it already works with their existing network rather than having to buy another specialized device for zig-bee/z-wave.

As for these, they work well, Kasa app works well, the use wireless wifi 4 N standard on the 2.4ghz band only. Haven't seen any wifi AC or 5ghz smart plugs. You can set schedules on the Kasa app as such as turn off/on sunset/sunrise, timers, etc not to mention smart things app integration so they can be triggered via events if you are into that. II wouldn't use indoor smart plugs outside even in a protected cover, they aren't waterproof and humidity will get into the plug. They have a specific waterproof outdoor smart plug for this which is perfect for controlling holiday decorations as it has 2 outlets on it which can be expanded further via waterproof extension cord adapters.

That one was 103P3 which is 12 amp. This is 105P3 which is 15 amp. Huge difference when it comes to what you want to use it for. Haven't seen this price in a while. In for one.

I hate having more Chinese CCP devices on my network but that's what pfSense is for. It works very well, works with Google / Alexa very easy. Very user friendly, lighting is good, has all of the PROPER certifications (Most smart plugs on Amazon DO NOT have all the safety certifications) and looks good.

I would say this is in the top 3 smart plugs on the market without a doubt.
