Re: [tlug] Slightly offtopic: Japan power outlet with consuption meter

久しぶり です

Although I haven't been to Japan for a long time, I guess that
you can probably get one or two of the smart plugs that are
supported by zigbee2mqtt. There is a list of suported devices at

I have a wifi smart plug that I could flash with tasmota (the
new version of the model can no longer be flashed, which is the
problem with those Wifi plugs) and a Xiaomi Zigbee smartplug.
Both can measure power consumption and are integrated in my smarthome
solution via MQTT.

The advantage of Zigbee is that a standard conform device should be
easier to get supported by zigbee2mqtt than a Wifi device to be
supported by tasmota.
