This iDevices smart plug on sale under $30 was built to weather the storm outside

With an iDevices Outdoor Switch (opens in new tab), you can begin controlling outdoor lights and appliances with your smartphone. It's equipped with dual outlets that are controlled simultaneously, and it's even HomeKit-enabled which lets you control it using Siri voice commands. While you can normally find it priced just above $45 on average, right now Amazon is offering the outdoor smart plug for just $29.90 (opens in new tab). Now at its lowest price ever, there's never been a better time to grab one of these than today.

The iDevices Outdoor Switch was just mentioned on our list of Best Smart Plugs for HomeKit in 2019, but it's a stellar option even if you are an Android user. It's compatible with Amazon Alexa so you'd be able to use an Echo device like the Echo Dot (opens in new tab) for voice control instead of Siri. Or you could just stick with the app on your phone to control the device. Then you'll be able to schedule specific on-times as needed, turn it off or on manually, and do it all from anywhere in the world.
