Now you don’t have to lift a finger when you want to turn on the lights, the coffee maker, and more. All you need is your voice with the Amazon Smart Plug which is compatible with Alexa.
The outlet lets you schedule lights, turn electric appliances on and off, and control devices remotely when you are not at home through Alexa-enabled devices like Echo, Fire TV, or Sonos One. You can also use the Alexa app which is compatible with Android, iOS, and Fire OS devices.
If you have multiple plugs then the better. This means you can control multiple outlets. You can even set up tasks that would make your day easier, like creating a breakfast routine that would turn off your bedside lamp and turn on your coffee maker in a single request. The possibilities are endless.
The good thing with the Amazon Smart Plug is its hassle-free installation. It doesn’t need any smart home hub and set up takes seconds. Simply turn on the power button found on the plug, connect it to an electrical socket, then connect to your home Wi-Fi and just ask Alexa for “smart home control.” If your Alexa-enabled device detects a new plug, then skip the second step and go to third right away.
The Amazon Smart Plug comes with a one-year store warranty. Unfortunately, though, it is for indoor use only.
