Unlock voice control with Echo device deals and $5 Amazon smart plugs
With a little over 20 hours left until Amazon Prime Day draws to a close, there's not much time left to take advantage of all the major discounts happening exclusively for Prime members. The deals on Amazon's Echo devices are some of the best you can find, and some even include an Amazon Smart Plug bundled in for just $5 extra. Considering it's normally sold for $25, that's some solid savings and an extremely affordable way to delve into smart home devices.
Amazon's Smart Plug lets you start voice controlling anything plugged into it by asking an Alexa-compatible device, and today's deal lets you snag one for only $5 with purchase of select Echo devices, including the Echo Dot, Echo Show 5, Echo Plus, and the 2nd-gen Echo.
Several of Amazon's best Echo devices include the $5 smart plug, such as the inexpensive Echo Dot (opens in new tab) that's down to only $22 thanks to Prime Day. Adding the smart plug brings its total to just $26.99, and you'll be able to voice control it with your new Echo device too! By plugging something into the Amazon Smart Plug, you'll be able to power it on remotely from anywhere in the world using an app on your phone. You can also schedule on and off times by asking Alexa to help once the Echo device has been set up.
The Echo devices which feature this $5 smart plug offer can be found below, but you'll need an active Prime membership if you want to take advantage of any of Amazon's Prime Day deals. If you're not a member already, starting a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) can make your account instantly eligible.
