The Kasa/Tp Link Wifi Timer has changed the way we use lighting. We have been running these cell phone app wifi timers in our fish rooms and store for over a year. You can plug many lights into 1 timer by using a power strip. You can also do neat tricks like setting something to turn on every day but not turn off. Why would you do this? Let's say you turn off your filter to feed your aquarium, and typically you do this when you get home from work. You can set the timer to automatically turn the power back on every day at 7pm.
I use this trick for my own fish room. There are days when I work out in the fish room late, normally my lights turn off at 9pm, but I also have them turn off again at midnight. This way if I'm working late and use the app to turn the lights on, they'll automatically turn off again if I forget and not grow algae.
I currently use these on 3 different tank setups. Works great for my lighting that isn't Bluetooth
I was on the fence about ordering this until I considered the effect my work schedule would have on my cycling 20g L -- algae, algae everywhere. Instead of "on at 7:30am, off at 5:30pm (or later)," the lights go on at 8am, off at 3pm. Beautiful. And so easy to set up.
I bought this as a backup and have not put it into service yet. I have no doubt it will perform as expected.
Should’ve done this years ago!!
Bought this because I kept forgetting to turn my aquarium light on. Also my work hours vary, so sometimes my light stays on for too long before I can come home and turn it off. This allowed my lighting to be consistent to "feed my plants" and prevent algae at the same time!
