If you're looking to get started in making your home a bit smarter, the TP-LINK Smart Plug is definitely the route to go. It's basically an outlet that is smart. So whatever you plug into it, can be controlled by your smartphone. It's pretty simple, and can make virtually anything in your home smart. For instance, if you plug your TV into the plug, you can then turn the TV on or off from your smartphone, using the appropriate app. In fact, what's even cooler here is the fact that it works with Alexa, so you can use your voice to turn on the TV. Typically the TP-LINK Smart Plug runs for around $40, but right now, Amazon has it on sale for just $29.95. However it gets even better. There is a coupon available, for you to clip another $5 off of the price tag, making it just $24.95.
Now if you were looking to pick up an Alexa-enabled device, you could get the TP-LINK and Amazon Echo Dot bundle. That would cost you $79.98, which isn't a bad price at all, and it's basically the same price as buying them separately. But the Amazon Echo Dot can do a whole lot more than just controlling your new Smart Plug from TP-LINK. It can read off the news to you, order you pizza and much more.
