It's easy to make fans, lamps, and other appliances in your home smarter with just a few bucks. Plugging them into these Gosund Mini Smart Plugs (opens in new tab) rather than directly into a power outlet will enable them to be controlled with your smartphone, or even your voice, but first you'll need to snag this two-pack at Amazon for $14.24 (opens in new tab) by entering promo code 25PLUGTAN during checkout. That's like picking them up for just $7 apiece.
These smart plugs connect to your Wi-Fi network at home and can be controlled using a free app on your smartphone or tablet. You'll be able to power them on or off from anywhere in the world, or schedule them to only be on at a certain time each day. For instance, rather than having to climb out of bed to turn off a light, you could turn it off from your phone as long as it's connected to one of these smart plugs.
Or, you could ask Alexa or Google Assistant to control them for you. You'll just need a compatible device like the Echo Dot (opens in new tab) or the Google Home Mini (opens in new tab) to get started.
Gosund includes a one-year warranty with this purchase. At Amazon, more than 500 customers left a review for these smart plugs resulting in a rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars (opens in new tab).
