Amazon is currently discounting the Wemo Mini Smart Plug, bringing the price down to just $24.99 right now. That's a great price for this smart plug, seeing as it typically runs around $30 and its regular price is $49.99. This is a great way to start making your home a "smart home".
The Wemo Mini Smart Plug is a smart plug that you can plug into your existing outlets and be able to control whatever is plugged into them using your smartphone. It's pretty easy to use, and set up. It uses WiFi to connect to the Wemo app – available on both Android and iOS – and it will allow you to control what's plugged in, by turning it on or off. But you can also set timers. So you can set the lamp that's plugged into the Wemo Mini Smart Plug, to turn on when the sun begins to set around 9pm, or have it turn on when you get up in the morning. Because this is the "mini" smart plug from Wemo, it will not cover the other outlet there, so that you are able to use one on each outlet and make both of these smarter. That's what's great about this model, compared to the older one that Wemo has, as those are larger, and cover up the second outlet there.
