Want a smart home, but don't need where to start? Get some smart plugs. Already have them? Maybe get a couple more. TP-Link has a bunch of its Kasa plugs suitable for your desk lamp to your garden path lights on sale right now on Amazon.
Smart plugs are a great way to make simple electronics more intelligent — be it an old lamp with a non-removable light bulb, an older TV, or a coffee maker. However, outlets can't tell what's plugged into them, so any smart plug just got a generic logo in the Home app. That changed when Google started automatically adjusting the symbol depending on what you call the device — e.g., "desk light" will give you a light bulb icon.
If you missed out on getting a 3-pack of TP-Link smart plugs for $30 last week, but are looking to get started with smartening up your home, you're in luck: TP-Link has a 4-pack of smart plugs for $24 right now on Amazon with a coupon code. But if you've already got an existing TP-Link setup, you'll want to keep in mind one major catch.
Well, we're at home right now. Still. Might as well take some time and effort to improve it. One way you can do that is automating your light fixtures, electronics, and appliances. Enter the TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug — Amazon is selling 3-packs for a surprisingly good price.

The previously teased and leaked Wyze smart plug is now a reality. Well, it will be soon. It's real in that you can spend money on it, but Wyze won't send the plugs for a few more weeks. The price is predictably low, just like other Wyze products. For $14.99, you get a pair of Wyze smart plugs that pair with your favorite assistant and other Wyze products.

If you're liking the look of a smart home, you might appreciate the color that Philips's Hue brand is providing with its light bulbs, lamps, and dimmer switches. But the company is apparently looking to expand beyond what it is offering this fall with a series of new fixtures, smart plugs, and Edison-style light bulbs.
If you have a smart speaker and want to use it to control your home appliances, smart plugs are one of the most convenient options to do so. Thanks to their built-in WiFi radio, they connect directly to your home router, which allows you to operate the socket remotely and hence your electrical devices. They're also quite straightforward to set up, as they don't need additional hubs or bridges to get online. Unfortunately, good ones can be costly and drive buyers away, but thanks to this deal, you can get two compact TP-Link smart plugs for $23, representing a $12 rebate off their MSRP.
