Amazon is discounting the Kasa Smart WiFi Light Switch from TP-Link right now, bringing the price down to $29.97, and that's down from $51.07, making it a really good price for this smart light switch. This is also the lowest price that this particular light switch has ever been, which makes it a really great time to pick one up.
Kasa is TP-Link's smart home product brand, so you'll find security cameras, smart plugs, smart light bulbs, smart light switches and more under this brand. And this smart Light Switch from Kasa is a great one to pick up. It looks like a regular light switch - there's no logos or lights included on the switch to make it stand out. It's also pretty simple to install in your home. So you are able to easily install it in place of your current light switch. Kasa does also include instructions on how to install this light switch and get it setup. This light switch does also work with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant, this is going to allow you to use your voice to control those lights, instead of needing to use the app. Though the app will still work as you'd expect, and the TP-Link app is available for both Android and iOS.
The light switch is WiFi-enabled, so you will need to keep it to the flipped on position. Otherwise it will be off, and you won't be able to use your voice or the app to control the lights. Additionally, this is going to fit in quite nicely in your home, giving you a good looking smart light switch that still fits in with your decor. Using a smart light switch is definitely a better option than doing smart bulbs, because it's cheaper and it will control all of the lights connected to that switch. So a room that has a ton of lights connected to one switch, is going to be great for this. Instead of paying around $50 per smart bulb (depending on the brand you decide to get). It's a much more economical way of making your home smart. And this smart light switch will not be this price for long, so you'll want to grab it before it's gone.
