TP-Link

This extension allows the control of TP-Link wifi plugs.

It can be used alongside, or as a replacement for the Raspberry Pi GPIO’s.

If you are not comfortable playing around with mains voltage, then this is the extension for you. All switching is done over Wifi, eliminating the need for wiring up SSR’s.

You will need to follow the TP-Link instructions to set up the plugs using the free TP-Link Kasa app. Setup is simple and only needs to be done once per plug. The setup will basically register the local IP address of the plug.

Once this is done, new fields appear on the Heating Elements and Pumps sections in the settings. You simply need to add the IP address of each plug into the TP-Link Address field and add the port number into the TP-Link Port field.
