TECKIN WiFi Smart Plug

I would love to start this review by saying the TECKIN WiFi Smart Plug is the perfect smart plug given the price, number and features – but it’s not.

Let’s start with the negatives. They’re bulky. This isn’t a unique problem but for those who have smaller switch wall sockets – this can be a big problem. It didn’t affect my review – but it’s worth noting.

Setup can be fiddly, a little technical knowledge will help. We tend to find that a lot of voice assistant devices like the Amazon Echo use 2.4 GHz WiFi bandwidth only – this is worth checking before purchasing. This is the same for most smart plugs so is closer to a standard than a flaw.

The rest is good. Very good.

Fantastic value for money smart plug that covers all the basics

A cost effective smart plug pack for your voice assistant or phone

The TECKIN WiFi Smart Plug is an ideal starter pack for those looking to add smart home capabilities to utensils. Plug in lights, fans, coffee machines or other low power devices and control their on/off with a voice assistant like Amazon Alexa / Google Home or using a mobile phone.
