How many times have you wished you could turn off your favorite lamp with your phone or power on the box fan in the corner of your room without getting out of bed? Smart plugs can make all of it possible, and more, and they're extremely affordable these days. Right now, you can even snag this 4-pack of Aoycocr Mini Smart Plugs for just $19.79 when you add them to your cart via that link. They're normally sold right above $30 on average as a set, though with today's deal you'd be snagging each one at just $5 apiece. That's a small price to pay for everything this 4-pack brings to your home. Alternatively, you can grab 1 plug for $7.79 if you don't need 4, though you'll probably want to smarten up another appliance or two down the line.

Unlike other types of smart plugs, this set requires no hub or subscription to start using to the full extent of its abilities. Simply download the free Smart Life app to your smartphone or tablet to begin controlling these smart plugs and powering them on and off from anywhere you are in the world. You'll even be able to schedule when they come on or turn off so you don't forget about it later.

Thanks to compatibility with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT, these smart plugs can also be voice-controlled as long as you have an appropriate device to assist, such as the Echo Dot or the Google Home Mini. You can also set a group in the app which allows you to control them all at once, or a specific pairing. The choice is up to you. Plus, other members of the family will be able to download the app to their phone or tablet to begin controlling these smart plugs too.
