Like many others it seems, the TP link plug was working great when purchased a while ago (few months) but is now pretty much worthless. At first, my success rate at getting Alexa to turn on the lights with it was about 90%. Just before the TP link outage and ever since, I'm looking at about a 20% success rate, since it loses connections every other day. You shouldn't be surprised when a device actually works like its supposed to. Last TP link product I ever buy.
