This controller will turn lights and other devices on and off—and that's about it.

Can power devices on and off according to a schedule ; Measures power consumption and lets you set limits ; Automatically shuts off if it overheats

Can't dim a connected lamp ; Can't automatically turn off after another device triggers it to turn on ; Android app is buggy

This is one of the least-intelligent smart plugs I've encountered. As cheap as it is, it's too expensive for what it delivers.

D-Link mydlink Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W215)

 

D-Link's mydlink Wi-Fi Smart Plug lets you turn small appliances on and off, track their power usage, and create power schedules using your iOS or Android device, but it's a bit bulky and doesn't support IFTTT recipes.

Easy to install. Monitors power consumption. Multiple scheduling options.

Bulky. Does not support IFTTT. No cost monitoring.

Conclusion The mydlink Wi-Fi Smart Plug from D-Link offers a relatively easy and affordable way to remotely control specific devices in your home without the need for a hub. It uses your existing Wi-Fi network and lets you turn things on and off with...

D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug review

 

The $50 D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug is a decent option if you're interested in basic home automation. Pair the plug with a lamp or other small appliance and use D-Link's free Android or iOS app to turn it on and off, set custom schedules, and monitor its...

D-Link's $50 Wi-Fi Smart Plug offers remote control of your small appliances, including scheduling and energy usage stats -- a better value than the $60 Belkin WeMo Insight Switch, which has similar features.

The Smart Plug isn't compatible with IFTTT, setup was surprisingly involved, performance was unreliable, and the app design could use some work.

D-Link needs to partner with IFTTT and fix performance inconsistencies to match the versatility and convenience of Belkin's WeMo Switch and WeMo Insight Switch.

D-Link WiFi Smart Plug Review

 

Piecing together your own smart home used to be a headache; now, you can buy products off-the-shelf, like D-Link's new WiFi Smart Plug , and be up and running from your smartphone in minutes. We're not just talking remote control over lights, either:...

The market for DIY smart home tech is growing rapidly, and remote-control outlets are one of the most basic components: it’s something you need to get right if you’re going to do home automation properly. D-Link’s first attempt has some obvious...

Review: D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug

 

Plug gives control, data on power consumption, but application needs work

Monitoring capability ; Setup ; Size

Application ; No off-site control

Home automation fans have been getting their fair share of gadgets and accessories in the last few years. Starting with light bulbs, and ramping up to larger machines like refrigerators and washing machines, the home automation market appears to be g

D-Link mydlink Home Smart Plug

 

An easy and powerful way to control your plug sockets from your phone

Really easy to set up and use ; Much more convenient than timed plug sockets ; Works anywhere around the world

Plug's a bit big ; Expensive for such a simple device

It may be pricey compared to traditional timed plug sockets, but the D-Link Smart Plug does enough extra and works well enough to convince us that it’s a worthy investment. Simply never having to worry again about whether you remembered to switch your...
