Smart plugs are a great way to bring even your non-IoT devices into the smart home ecosystem, and with a Cyber Monday deal on Amazon, you can pick up some of the best for super cheap. A four-pack of TP-Link’s Kasa Smart Plug Mini 15A is 30 percent off, bringing the price down to just $35 dollars from its usual cost of $50. These smart plugs work with all of the major smart home platforms, including Apple Homekit, Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Samsung SmartThings.
Kasa Smart Plugs are easy to set up through the app, available for both iOS and Android, and are great for anyone looking for a no-fuss experience. They top our list of the best smart plugs you can get today thanks to their versatility and ease of use. With the smart plugs, you’ll have access to voice and remote controls, device scheduling, grouping and even energy monitoring to see how much power your devices are consuming. While smart plugs won’t be able to handle complex smart home programming, they can be used to control simple functions like turning a lamp on or off.
The Smart Plug Mini is designed to take up minimal space, so it doesn’t block other outlets when it’s plugged into the wall — as can be an issue when plugging in chunky accessory blocks. It connects to your home Wi-Fi and can receive voice commands from Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant or Samsung SmartThings for hands-free use. Or, you can control the plugs and thus the connected devices through the app. While the app doesn’t have a built-in sharing mode to add multiple members of the household, you can use the same login on multiple devices, so multiple family members can have access.
Besides smart plugs, TP-Link has several smart home devices on sale for Cyber Monday. The color-changing Kasa Smart Light Bulbs, which are among the best smart light bulbs on the market, are 35 percent off. A four-pack of the light bulbs is just $26, down from its normal price of $40. The light bulbs support Google Assistant and Alexa for voice controls, as well as control via the app. There are also deals on IoT security cameras, dimmer switches and outdoor plugs.
