Nightlight too: iDevices Switch

The iDevices Switch is one of our favorite Wi-Fi-connected, HomeKit-enabled plugs. The unique design, which shifts the plug to the side of the device, keeps it from unappealingly jutting out of the wall, and the multicolor LED light strip, serves as an excellent night light.

Find the perfect smart plug for your HomeKit for peace of mind

A HomeKit-enabled smart plug is the simplest way to create smart home devices out of "dumb" ones, and then use Siri and the Home app to control them. 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 iDevices Switch. It has a unique design compared to other plugs that makes it easier to place anywhere in your home, such as behind furniture, and its built-in LED makes an excellent, colorful nightlight.
