As of March 2, 2017 these devices quit working with Amazon Echo.

I did some searching online last night and it appears it wasn't just me. There were lots of complaints from other users on the Alexa "skills" section who reported their TP-Link smart plugs quit working with Alexa yesterday. Hopefully this is a temporary situation and the people at TP-Link will get the problem resolved but as of this morning I would NOT recommend these devices if you want to use them with Amazon Echo. see less As of March 2, 2017 these devices quit working with Amazon Echo.

Simple answer. You can have 10 or 15 if you want ... I have 20( 15 smart bulbs ) and 5 switches. I had to use switches because I had globe bulbs ,chandler bulbs, an overhead fan with multi bulbs.

TV overhead, TV lamp, front porch, couch lamp, Xmas tree, hall light,living room lamp,kitchen fan,etc. my Honeywell thermostat,.. I chose not to include my door locks with Echo.. I found that standing outside the window next to Echo and yelling Alexa turn on the living Room Lamp she will do it. Remember she is voice activated , voice recognition , but not voice spicifc . So any voice works. So if door locks are connected. It would be possible for some one to stand out side and yell Alexa open the front door. A plus to all this tech. Is you now can operated from any WiFi . I leave my lights off when at work. Before I leave work I turn on my pole light and my sun room. Think of the savings in electricity. Also you can dim lights , some bulbs you can change colors, and you can set timers so they will come on at different times automatically .. Looking now at a Neato Robot vacuum that Alexa can run and a garage door opener. ( Infinite possibilities. see less Simple answer. You can have 10 or 15 if you want ...

Yes, and make sure you don't use names like "room 1" and "room 3". Instead use " living room" "Tv Lights" Also a helpful tip. I run a extension cord (with dual outlets) for my 2 lights behind my couch to the smart plug. A manual group setup that will save you from buying another plug just to automate an area that is close to the same outlet or in this case closest extension outlet.

Currently ZERO outlets will work with Alexa. TP-Link has a bust in their cloud system so none of the smart plugs work with Alexa as of 3/2/17. Hope TP-Link repairs the issue or Amazon can provide a refund.

I have 29 devices connected to the Echo. Kasa and Wemo plugs. SmarThings lights. They're grouped by room. "Living Room", "Bedroom", "Everything" and so on. I can say, "Alexa, turn off EVERYTHING" and have every smart bulb and smart plug in the house turn off when I go to bed.

I can say, "Alexa, turn on living room." and have my mix of Kasa and Wemo plugs turn on. I can say, "Alexa, turn off recliner plug." and have just the lamp next to my recliner turn off when watching a movie. (It's reflection on my TV is distracting.)
The TP-Link Kasa plugs work more reliably than the Wemo ones, and are cheaper too. If you want to do some home automation without also buying an expensive hub like SmartThings or Wink, these are a great way to start. see less

If you have only one p li ugh, you can only control power to what's plugged into it. You could use a power strip plugged into one of these to create a poor man's group - my office has three lights and two monitors plugged into a power strip which is plugged into one of these switches. But I can't control what on the power strip gets turned off. It's all or nothing.

Yes three separate name in Alexa app, but you can create grouping and name those groupings. A grouping tô tô Malé those devices activate/deactivate together.
