Today’s hottest Amazon Echo and Google Home smart plug deals on Amazon

Smart homes thrive on smart plugs, so we found the best deals on Amazon right now for smart plugs you can use with Amazon Echo and Google Home.

After you configure a smart speaker that lets you talk to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you’ll inevitably think of capabilities to add to your smart home. You may want to add security devices like locks, lights, and alarm systems. Perhaps you’ll focus on enhancing your home entertainment system to manage television, streaming video services, and music. Maybe you’ll focus on putting Alexa or Google Assistant in every room for easy access to your digital assistant for reference, research, and reminders. Possibly you’ll add devices to your smart home just for fun. Regardless of the purpose, most devices you add to your smart home require smart plugs.

Smart plugs are not all the same. Some smart plugs work on proprietary networks and require a special hub while others connect to Wi-Fi directly. Smart plugs differ by size, capacity — which generally means having either one or two sockets — and the inclusion of push-button switches. Many plugs have associated mobile apps for extra features such as scheduling and energy consumption monitoring. Some plugs are compatible with every smart home platform and wireless standard you can think of, while others have more specific connectivity restrictions.

We found the best discounts available today for smart plugs from Amazon and put them all in one place. To be included, smart plugs had to be compatible with Amazon Echo or Google Home, or both. Because new smart plug brands seem to appear every day, we only looked at plugs with four-star or higher average Amazon customer reviews — and yes, we know rating systems aren’t always perfect. Lastly, the smart plugs had to be on sale and available for shipping today.

Whether you’re shopping for smart plugs to build out your smart home configuration or you’re just getting started, these five deals can help you save up to $23.
