Sony HT-XT2 2.1 Channel Sound Base with Bluetooth
Adding speakers to your existing TV setup can turn any ordinary room into a full-on entertainment center, but sometimes speaker choice can be so bulky that ity interferes with your existing aesthetics. That’s where a compact, yet powerful speaker like the Sony HT-XT2 2.1 Channel Sound Base with Bluetooth comes into play. Currently 20 percent off on Amazon, the HT-XT2 model measures just 33.1-by-5.5-by-18.7 inches, yet packs powerful sound thanks to its Bluetooth streaming capabilities.
The one-piece speaker system boasts a built-in subwoofer that fits neatly under your TV. Use it with your TV or play music wirelessly via Bluetooth using the SongPal app. Simply download the free SongPal app, and you can control both with your phone or tablet.
You can use the speaker as a starter, and easily add compatible Sony wireless speakers as rear surround sound speakers to enjoy an even more immersive experience. You can then use SongPal Link to group selected Sony soundbars and speakers together, which will allow you to stream music from different music services, a smartphone, a PC, or your DLNA network in multiple rooms throughout your home.
The Sony HT-XT2 2.1 Channel Sound Base with Bluetooth normally retails for $148 but is currently discounted to $118 on Amazon, saving you $30 (20 percent).
D-Link Smart Plug
Do you know how much power is wasted each year when you leave lights and other electronics on when you’re not there? Even if you do so on purpose, perhaps to make it look like someone is home, there are better options for keeping unwanted guests at bay. You can instead control your devices from anywhere using a smart plug, such as this D-Link Smart Plug that works with Amazon Alexa and is currently 50 percent off on Amazon.
The smart plug allows you to turn devices on or off from your smartphone or tablet anywhere you are. You can even create schedules for your devices. for example, you can set the coffee maker to turn on when you wake up in the morning or your lights to turn off at a specific time.
The D-Link Smart Plug is designed to work with existing Wi-Fi networks, which makes for an easy setup. There is no additional hub required and you can connect to your existing Wi-Fi network with the simple push of the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button on the Smart Plug and on the router. The integration of Amazon Alexa gives you hands-free control of your lights and much more. You can also make your home even smarter by pairing your smart plug with other Wi-Fi-capable products.
This D-Link Smart Plug normally retails for $40 but is currently marked down to just $20 on Amazon, providing a discount of $20 (50 percent).
