TP-Link smart plugs are on sale for just $16 on Amazon right now

tp link smart plug sale

When people talk about smart home technology, they usually bring up Alexa, Google Home, and Siri before anything else. While it’s true that artificial intelligence is the brains of the operation, A.I. is completely limited by how many other devices in your home have the correct integration. You can always ask Alexa to turn on your toaster, rice cooker, or fan, but nothing is going to happen if those devices are too stupid to understand any of your commands. If I just insulted one of your favorite home appliances, I apologize, but luckily there is a way to add a degree of Alexa-integration to every one of those things — a TP-Link smart plug. And for a limited time, you can pick one up for just $16 on Amazon.

The beauty of a WiFi smart plug is that it can turn just about any electronic device into a smart device. The TP-Link smart plug integrates with Amazon Alexa and Google Assitant for easy voice control activation. If you don’t already have an Amazon Echo or Google Home, however, this device is still able to connect directly to your smartphone. It may seem pretty cool to be able to activate your outlets with just your voice or with the tap of the button, but there are also quite a few practical benefits to this technology. You can monitor the energy consumption of your plug-in devices and set times and schedules to avoid those higher than average energy bills at the end of every month. This scheduling aspect also doubles as a security system by allowing you to set lights to turn on and off while you are away or on vacation.

TP-link is one of the most trusted brands of smart plugs on the market right now, and with discounts like these, it’s not hard to see why. Normally priced at $30, the Kasa smart WiFi plug is just $16 on Amazon and Walmart today. If you plan on upgrading your smart home now, or in the future, it’s a great time to cut down on costs. We don’t usually see smart home deals like this unless it’s Prime Day.
