HS110 versions

What thread had all of the HS110 versions? I bought six HS110 from B&H when they had them for $17.99 a pair. The boxes say 1.1 on them but the app shows this. Should I try to get them swapped for anything newer?

V1’s with 1.2.5 firmware work just fine. @duanetiemann did an assessment of V1 vs. V2 on the forums somewhere, but he had to work really hard directly with TP-Link to get a V2 unit, which I think had a slightly larger power capacity rating.

I got a V2 (from somewhere, I don’t remember where) and it seems to work fine w/ Sense as well. The V2 has a USB port on the side so it’s quite easily recognizable.

Thanks for the quick response. I’ll use what I have. :beers:

My V2 reported about 16W less than my V1 when stacked on the same outlet.

The V1 and V2 report data a bit differently and caught Sense off guard. They weren’t reporting V2 data. That has since been repaired.

Release notes says “support for hardware version 2 of TP-Link HS110 smart plugs”. What is different in version 2 compared to version 1?

Here: Firmware Update: Version 1.14.2119

I know user @duanetiemann did a fair amount of research into the differences. There’s nothing obvious from the datasheets that I’m seeing.

Version 2 has a USB port on it that Version 1 does not have.

Thanks. I thought there was a post around here on this topic.

Left side is V1, right side is V2.

What’s the latest on these? Seems like Newegg is the only place selling v2 and everyone else is selling v1. Are the measurements the same between the 2 versions now? An earlier post suggested that the measurements differ.

I only have v1 in my house and I have no problems at all. But let me check with the team and get back to you.

@RyanAtSense - any updates?

Pardon the delay. You shouldn’t have any issues with the V2.

So V1 and V2 should produce the same readings?

We’ve tested and did not see the differences to what @duanetiemann was referring. Perhaps that was an issue solely with the plug he had. If you get a V2 and experience an issue, definitely let us know though. I’m going to grab a few for my house to check it out, but we have one in the office and didn’t see any issues.


Will do. Have 4 V2 plugs arriving tomorrow. Thinking about picking up a couple of V1 plugs as well. Will report back here if I see any issues.

I only have the 1 V2. I haven’t repeated the stacked testing. If Ryan reports that they produce the same measure, that’s good enough for me. Actually, I haven’t even stacked V1s to ensure they are consistent.

FWIW, I now have an HS300. (6 outlets). And I know there are more variants out there. The HS300 protocol is different. You have to specify a context to select the correct outlet. I haven’t worked it up yet. I assume Sense is up to speed on them all, but haven’t checked the HS300 yet. I’m still fooling with the Curb/SmartPlug combo stuff.
