Razer Viper Mini

71JR9QHINLL AC SL1500

  • Price: $29
  • Where to buy: Amazon

The Razer Viper Mini is a lightweight gaming mouse, and it is 10% smaller than the Viper. Because it is a gaming mouse, this does not have wireless capabilities. That makes for a more accurate gaming mouse.

There are six programmable buttons on the Razer Viper Mini, which can be used for different macro functions and controlled in Razer Synapse 3.

Kasa – which is TP-Link’s smart home brand – has a four pack of its smart light bulbs for under $30. What a great way to start your smart home.

These are A19 bulbs that are dimmable. Unfortunately these are not color or tunable. You’re stuck with soft white or 2700K. These are pretty bright at 800 Lumens. And there’s no hub needed, while still working with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

With a smart plug, you are able to control things that aren’t smart – like lights, Christmas trees and such – with your voice or with the Alexa app.
