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 scenes and automations. These great HomeKit accessories will make managing your home more efficient. We love the Wemo Mini for its low price and compact design. Plus, it can work with HomeKit, Alexa, and Google Assistant; making it a highly versatile option.

Our top pick for the best smart plugs has to go to the Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Plug. We love this for its slim form factor, its capability to connect with different home automation systems like HomeKit and Google Assistant, and the fact that it doesn't need a hub. This makes it one of the best for those new to home automation.

If you're looking for a smart plug with extras, another favorite of ours is the Eve Energy Strip - Smart Triple Outlet & Power Meter. Since it's a power strip, you can plug in up to three different devices. Plus, it's an energy monitor with a Bluetooth connection, which can help keep your energy bills down.
