Tapo P100 (UK) supplies power even when "off"
I have a TP-Link Tapo P100 with just an AppleTV (720HD version so old-ish) plugged in.
Ideally I waltnt the device "off" by default and would like to switch it "On" when desired using the Tapo
If I set the Tapo P100 to off then periodically - approx every 2 minutes - the device gets enough power over that time period to power on fir a split second and then switch off.
This is probably detrimental to the device
- but also since it is plugged into the TV via HDMI cable - I get a very annoyin popup on the TV every couple of minutes stating that the device is avaialable
when it ought to be permanently off.
Other threads describe somethiing similar with lower power devices e.g. LED lights, LED Xmas lights and the solution was to turn the Tapo 180 degrees to change whether live or neutral was being turned off
My Tapo is a 3-pin UK version so I cannot do this.
Is there a way to updtae in firmware (and in the app) a control that reverses this polarity/live/neurtal thing?
PS. good news is that the AppleTV when in "standby" is very low power, but would be nice to resolve
There's likely other devices the would affect, and maybe harmfully!
