In this video we take a look at the setup process for the TP-Link HSxxx series of WiFi Smart Plugs. A Smart plug is a device that you attach to a power outlet in your home to make it remotely controllable via the internet.
With remote control over the electrical supply to a device, a TP-Link WiFi Smart Plug can give our household appliances additional features and functions, for example:
