Connect appliances all over the house with three Wemo Mini smart plugs for $58
These three Wemo Mini smart plugs are down to $57.99 on Amazon. That's not a bad deal considering the price brings them down to $19 apiece. The smart plugs are going for closer to $25 individually, so you're saving $15 total buying the 3-pack versus buying three plugs. The 3-pack usually sells for $70 or more, and this is a new low price for the 3-pack.
Control the plugs from anywhere using the free app or your smart home. Works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit. You can set schedules so your coffee maker wakes up when you do or randomize them with "Away Mode."
The Wemo Mini is one of the best smart plugs around because it requires very little setup and very little maintenance once you get it all connected. And connecting is pretty simple, too, because the plug doesn't require a hub or any other external gear to get onto your Wi-Fi and sync with your smart home. Just download the free Wemo app available on iOS or Android and it'll walk you through a lot of the process.
If you use a smart home wtih Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit, you can use voice commands to control these plugs. This is particularly useful for lights because once the plug is connected to your smart home you can just say "Alexa, turn on the bedroom lights" and you don't have to flip a switch. Imagine having your hands filled with groceries and being able to go "Turn on the kitchen lights!" withoout having to stop to put the bags down so you can see where you're going.
These smart plugs live up to the Mini name, too. The form factor is so compact you can put two of the plugs on the same outlet without interference. Use the app to schedule the plugs so they turn off when you leave or come on when you come home. You can even use "Away Mode" to randomize lights so it looks like someone is still moving around the house flipping switches even while you're gone.
