Since you’re hunkering down at home, you might as well make things as easy for yourself as possible. We’re talking about the important stuff, like turning off the TV without getting up from the couch or turning on your coffee maker while snuggling in bed.
What you need are smart plugs, and we found some goodies. Right now, you can score this TP-Link Kasa Wi-Fi Smart Plug four-pack for $27, or $23 off at Amazon. That’s a sweet 46 percent discount—and breaks down to just $6.75 per plug.
Not only is this the all-time lowest price we’ve seen on this four-pack; these smart-home plugs have earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 3,300 Amazon reviewers.
How it works
Simply plug one of these into a wall outlet, then plug in anything from a lamp or a TV to a coffeemaker. Connect the plug to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Kasa Smart app (it works with Androids and iPhones too). And that’s it. Now you can control just about anything in your home with your phone.
“Hands down, the best smart plugs we’ve purchase and installed,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “We have them installed throughout our home for all of our lamps, and even had several of our indoor Christmas decorations hooked up to them this past year, including our tree and pre-lit garland that wrapped along our stair railings.”
There are other smart home plugs on the market, of course, like the Wemo Mini Smart Plug. But Amazon shoppers seem to prefer the Kasa Smart Plug. “I have found that these Kasa Smart plugs work really well and bounce back from any power or network hiccups really quickly,” shared a satisfied shopper. “The other brands I have around the house take some time to reacquire my network once powered back on. Sometimes I have to unplug them completely and replug them. In the case of Wemo, I've often had to reconfigure from scratch after a power.”
You can even connect these smart home plugs to the Echo Dot or Google Home Mini to control things with your voice via either Alexa or Google Assistant. After you sync them up, just say ‘Hey Alexa (or Hey Google), turn on my TV.’ Easy peasy!
“With the pairing to Alexa it made turning them on and off a breeze with a simple command, and even through the Kasa app you can schedule certain ones to turn on and off at particular times or randomly turn on and off so it looks like someone’s home throughout the day when you’re at work or on vacation,” added a five-star Amazon reviewer. “Being able to also control the lights through their app is nice too when you’re out of town so you have even more control of making it appear like you’re home when you’re not.”
At 46 percent off, these TP-LINK Kasa Smart Home Plugs just make your life less stressful, and who wouldn’t want that? “These Wi-Fi plugs are incredibly simple to set up and use! With Alexa and Google Home integration, it makes it even easier to control your plugs with a voice command instead of having to pull out your phone to turn it on,” raved another happy shopper.
