Winters coming up, so we thought we would show you a quick an easy way to turn on/off your heater using Google Assistant - you could do this from your couch, or while on the way home so it's toasty warm when you arrive.

By using a smart plug, and a little setup via the free apps, we'll be able to say "Hey Google, turn on the lounge heater", and it'll pop itself on. You can, of course, also say "turn off the lounge heater" should you find yourself wondering if you remembered to do that while rushing to get to work :)

You can also set all your usual timers inside the app, so you want it to turn on automatically in the morning before you wake up, that's no problem.

The TP-Link Smart Plug one we've used in the video below is the TP-link HS100 Smart Plug, but there is also a TP-Link HS110 Smart Plug with energy monitoring if you want to know exactly how much power your heater is using.

Check out our video below showing exactly how to set this up, we hope this helps you to stay warm this winter :) Be sure to keep your eyes on PB Tech Tips & News for the latest!
