Best for most: Wemo Mini

Staff Favorite

Belkin's Wemo Mini features a slim profile that won't block the other receptacle on the wall, allowing two of them to be used in a single outlet. This Wi-Fi outlet works without a hub, and connects to HomeKit, Alexa, or the Google Assistant as well as the Wemo app on iOS and Android. The Wemo Mini is also UL certified and it comes with a three-year warranty.

Budget-friendly: Meross Smart WiFi Plug Mini

The Meross Smart Wi-Fi Plug Mini provides all of the HomeKit outlet essentials in a compact package, with a compact price. This plug is ready to go with just a scan of the HomeKit pairing code without having to download another app or registering for an account. Combined with fast response times and great reliability, it's one of the best HomeKit values around.

Clean convenience: ConnectSense Smart In-Wall Outlet

The ConnectSense Smart In-Wall Outlet offers all of the connected goodies as standard smart plugs, without the added bulk. Fast response times, reliable connectivity, independent controls, and energy monitoring make it an excellent option for those that want convenience but don't want to compromise on design.

Monitor it: Eve Energy

The Elgato Eve Energy is a Bluetooth-connected smart plug. With in-depth energy monitoring stats, it can help you keep a lid on your utility bills. Thanks to the device's Bluetooth LE connection, you won't need to struggle with a Wi-Fi setup process or crowd your network with another device—the Eve Energy communicates directly with your phone.

Two-in-one: Satechi Dual Smart Outlet

Just like the Wemo Mini, the Satechi's HomeKit plug features a slim form factor that doesn't block the other receptacle on a standard outlet. However, this plug includes two smart outlets, and it includes real-time energy monitoring. If you really want to take things to the next level, you can even fit two of these on a single outlet.

Hues of power: Philips Hue Smart Plug

If you already have a Philips Hue Bridge, then this smart plug will integrate directly with it, and HomeKit. This allows it to work using ZigBee wireless connectivity, keeping it off your Wi-Fi network, and without a local-only Bluetooth connection. Best of all, this plug is slim and compact, giving you the room to fit two of them into a single outlet.

For the outdoors: Meross Outdoor Smart WiFi Plug

The Meross Outdoor Smart WiFi Plug provides you with not one, but two, handy weather-resistant outlets, perfect for holiday lighting, decorations, and more. This plug uses Wi-Fi for connectivity, which allows you to connect it to your network without the use of a separate hub. This makes it ready to work with HomeKit in a matter of seconds, just plug in and scan to start the outdoor fun.

Beauty and brains: Eve Energy Strip

Eve's smart power strip combines a home office essential with smart convenience and a beautiful design that will make you want to show it off instead of hiding it under the desk. This strip includes the same energy monitoring capabilities as Eve's single smart plug, but it covers all three on-board outlets, and its Bluetooth connection pairs directly through the Home app, and HomeKit.

Total coverage: ConnectSense Smart Outlet 2

The ConnectSense Smart Outlet 2 covers both of your outlets, giving you two smart outlets in one compact accessory. This creates a clean look without bulky mismatched sizes, and it also has a handy color LED nightlight.

The best smart plugs for HomeKit are the simplest way to create smart home devices out of "dumb" ones, adding Siri voice controls and support for Home app automations and scenes. We love the Wemo Mini for its low price, compact design and its ability to work with not just HomeKit, but also with Alexa and the Google Assistant, making it a highly versatile option.

If you're looking for a smart plug with extras, then go with the ConnectSense Smart In-Wall Outlet. It has a unique in-wall design compared to other plugs that gives it a cleaner look in your home, and it includes energy monitoring. If that wasn't enough, both of its outlets are smart and work independently of each other.
