Great way for controlling thing around the house or for when you are away. . Would have got 5 stars if the manual button was easier to access when a plug was in the socket. They tell me it is being redesigned. I’m awaiting that before buying some more. The advance scheduling is a bit of a clunky interface but very flexible. The temperature sensors are all over the place with readings over 50 degrees c out of the box. Could do with a self reboot when it looses the wifi. I’ve had to cycle the power, which means i have to be there. Apart from that they work very well and i would recommend them.

Works well but could be louder.

A product which gets the job done. Great product with little wrong with it. Good range of detection and easy to set up. Only reason it is not 5* is due to it having to be plugged into the socket without any way of moving it elsewhere. Hier sind die Spezifikationen für die mydlink Home DCH-100KT/B Smart Home HD Starter Kit:

  • Power consumption (typical): 5 W, AC input voltage: 100-240 V, Current: 16 A
  • Certification: FCC, CE, UL, CE/LVD, CE LVD, FCC Class B
  • Wi-Fi standards: 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n

Good but became unreliable after 3 months use. . So i purchased this to control my heating in france from the uk. It worked fine for about 3 months, and saved me a freeze-up. However now it is forever loosing the wi-fi signal and requires a reset (unplug and re-plug in), then it goes ok for about 2 weeks and drops out again. I have since changed to a rival brand that is cheaper and so far that one is 100% reliable. I liked the d-link as it gave wattage output and i could tell when the heating wasn’t working correctly (as the system pressure had dropped), so this was rectified by my neighbour and it saved me a major freeze up. Just wish it had maintained it’s reliability.

Smart plug does work with alexa in the u. K. But. 17- the d-link skill is now available in the u. K so the ifttt workaround is no longer required. This smart plug works very well with the downloaded ‘mydlink home’ app for my iphone. I had it set up in minutes and was happily annoying the girlfriend turning the lamp on and off over and over again using my phonelike many others though i bought this item to use with the amazon echo and so i was disappointed to learn that the ‘d-link skill’ has not been released in the u. There is a workaround though; simply download another app called ifttt (at least that’s what’s it’s called for the iphone) open the app up and do a search for ‘d-link’ (type it exactly as shown here). It will bring up a number of d-link items which should include the smart plug.

Basic, affordable surveillance. These units work pretty well but don’t expect much in the way of image resolution from them except in bright sunlight. They are very sensitive to changing light conditions if you use the motion detection feature. They are quite easy to set up and work perfectly in standard browsers. Security is pretty poor but at least they have some. Never did get ftp working but didn’t try too hard as the email feature works well. Besten mydlink Home DCH-100KT/B Smart Home HD Starter Kit

This is the second one of these i have bought, it works very well i had no problem setting it up i used the qr code and manually added my wifi i have them both connected through my amazon echo to turn off/on my appliances by voice it also logs how much electricity your appliance is using you just need to set up the cost per unit of your electricity and the bill date, the only thing you have to watch out for is the bill cycle only remembers the current month its working on so at the end of each bill cycle at the start of a new month it reverts to zero to start over, i would have liked to have looked back on previous months running costs.

It needs to be switched off and on again to reset it quite often.

Contrary to some comments i found this really easy to set up and use it regularly to deliver. Contrary to some comments i found this really easy to set up and use it regularly to deliver music to my audiolab. Sound quality of that music is most acceptable.

Poor set up makes this product a bit of a dud. . This has been a fight to set up at all. Once it has an ip address on your wifi network you can’t actually do the set up. It only has its own wifi before any wps or manual wifi set up takes place. If you have reset it you have to restart it by turning it off and on again otherwise it won’t connect at all. If it goes wrong you have to basically reset the whole thing and start again. The restart is turning it off and on. The reset involves holding a pin into the reset socket and turning it on keeping that pin pressed on the reset button until you get the correct flashing red light. This is not in the quick instructions. You can be up a creak before you’ve even started as most people would just turn it on and press the wps button as it obviously needs to connect to your own wifi.

Good but disconnects sometimes. Would have gotten 5 stars if it didnt just randomly drop the connection from time to time and be a bit complicated when setting up.

The app is very temperamental, have to readjust wifi settings on phone inorder to connect to camera and the door sensor isnt very good, it keeps disconnecting so we have to keep reinstalling it. Picture from camera is good and motion detection is very sensitive so be careful where you put it.

Works well, took me a few minutes to set up but now it’s fine. Have set this up so that i get notifications every time someone moves past. This can be activated and deactivated whenever using the push notifications option on my iphone.

Music adapter – exceeded expectations. Early days, but this device does seem to do what it claims, which 2 other devices have not. Which considering one of them was a bose soundtouch, this is super impressive. I have tried a few items to attempt to get a relatives huge itunes library (over 34,000 tracks) to other locations in the house, tried a pure device, even stumped up for a bose unit, only to find out it literally can not cope with libraries like thisplugged this in, pressed a button to connect it to the existing network and bam, airplay is working on 2 different units with 2 different itunes. I’m shocked at upto 1/10th the price of a bose. Yes you need another unit, but people usually have that. After this i have also used it as a dnla source, which works pretty nicely also, including the windows media play dnla streamer, which is working now as i type this. I have not tried the direct wifi options, so perhaps that is where some people have been having issues. And i saw some comments that the sound would dip for some. This is typical in my experience when you are using a device and streaming from it at the same time.
