Use the plug in conjunction with your Christmas lights and you can ensure that your home is looking festive, even if you're over the river and through the woods.

Using the Kasa Smart app, you'll be able to power the plug on or off from anywhere in the world, set schedules, and more. You can also group this smart plug with other Kasa smart plugs in your home so you can control them all simultaneously if you'd like. Plus, if you have a device like the Amazon Echo Dot (opens in new tab) or Google Home Mini (opens in new tab) at home, you can voice control the smart plug and even give each outlet its own name.
