Amazon has the SYLVANIA SMART+ Smart Plug on sale today for Prime Day. Taking an extra 35-percent off of the regular price, bringing it down to $15.28. That actually makes this one of the cheapest smart plugs available right now, and a great way to make your home a bit smarter without costing a fortune.
This smart plug from SYLVANIA works with Zigbee, so that if you are one that does have a Zigbee hub in your home, you'll be able to use this smart plug with it and make it easier to control it as well, through one app instead of needing several different apps. Now this smart plug isn't like the "mini" ones that are on the market now. This one is actually fairly tall, and will cover up the second outlet on the wall, which means to make one outlet smart, you're going to sacrifice the other one. That won't be a big deal for most people, but it is something to keep in mind before picking up this one. Of course, this smart plug from SYLVANIA does work with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, so you are able to use your voice to control it. These smart plugs are great because it can make your old lamp at home "smart" without having to buy a new lamp or a new bulb.
This is part of Amazon's Prime Day, which is ongoing now through midnight PST on July 17. However, you can only take advantage of this deal if you are a Prime member, so if you are not a member of Amazon Prime, you're going to want to sign up for Amazon Prime. Luckily, Amazon does offer up a free 30-day trial, which you can use for Prime Day and then cancel within a month and not pay a thing but take advantage of all of the deals on Amazon Prime Day, which is pretty neat.
