I have a detached shed which is over 40 feet from where my router is. The shed is 20 feet long and the florescent light is at the very back. So I bought one of these to be able to turn on the shed light if I'm in the house or as I enter the shed where I have an echo dot plugged in. Sure enough, Kasa mini plug works like a charm. It's so nice not to have to go into a dark shed and fumble for the pull chain. When my hubby comes in at night from fishing, I can turn on the shed light for him while I'm in the house watching tv. I have these scattered all over the house. In the basement, bedrooms, living room, kitchen....... anywhere you have a lamp with a cord. I know they make them for wall switches too. I wish I could use it with my Keurig, but you still have to push a button on the Keurig to activate the brewing..... so that won't work. But if you had an old style coffee percolator and an echo in your bedroom, you can ask it to turn on before you get out of bed in the morning or even set it to come on and go off every day at a set time. All these units can be set to operate on a schedule or even cause your lights to go on randomly if you're on vacation. You can also remotely operate one or your lights from your cell phone or IPad.
I used one with a small table fan in my bedroom this summer. If I got too cold at night, I didn't have to get up to turn it off. I just said... Echo, Fan OFF......and vice versa......if I got too hot, all I had to say was Echo, Fan on.
I've use these for over a year now, with not a single problem from any of the 10 units I have. Very easy to set up. I'm a 70 yr old gal and if I can do it.........you can too. Be sure you set up using a 2G network...last I knew it doesn't work on 5G
