Turning your home into a smart home can be a bit of a daunting task, not to mention pretty expensive. Luckily there are smart outlets or smart plugs available to turn your older "dumb" appliances into "smart" appliances. This is done by simple plugging in that appliance or that lamp, or that TV into this smart plug. The smart plug then connects to the Internet and is able to be controlled using the included app or your voice (through Alexa). So if you plug in your TV to the TP-Link Smart Plug Mini, you'll be able to turn it on or off from your smartphone, or if you have an Alexa device like the Echo Dot, you'll be able to tell Alexa to turn on the TV.
The TP-Link Smart Plug Mini is a pretty impressive smart plug and it typically runs about $49.99. However, Amazon is currently offering the TP-Link Smart Plug Mini for just $34.99, and this is their latest model. This model is better because it's slimmer (hence the "mini" name) so it doesn't cover up more than one outlet. It's easy to setup and use as well.
