Belkin's Wemo Mini features a slim profile that won't block the receptacle outlet, allowing two of them to be used in a single outlet. The Mini is UL safety certified, and it also includes a three-year warranty, protecting your investment for years to come.
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.
The iDevices Wall Outlet is an in-wall smart home product that can replace any standard outlet in your home. Instead of having to augment your current setup with external plugs and switches, you get two independently controlled outlets that actually look like they belong.
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 PM3 is the perfect bedside companion thanks to its built-in LED nightlight and 2 USB ports. This plug uses Wi-Fi for a seamless connection directly to not just HomeKit, but also Alexa and Google Assistant.
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 Wall Outlet. It has a unique in-wall design compared to other plugs that gives it a cleaner look in your home, and its built-in LED makes an excellent, colorful nightlight. If that wasn't enough, both of its outlets are smart, and work independently of each other.
