Over at Amazon, you can pick up the Eve Energy Smart Plug and Power Meter for its lowest price to date at just $19.99. That deal is matching a one-day promotion at Best Buy so we expect the price will rise at the end of the day at Amazon, too.
It still sells for between $40 and $50 pretty consistently at both retailers despite a new model having been released, and today's price is a match for the lowest we have ever seen it go. The deal could sell out sooner than the end of the day so if you want to add the smart plug to a couple more of your outlets, you want to place your order as soon as possible.
This plug supports Apple's HomeKit without the need for an extra hub. That gives you the ability to control the power status of your plugged-in appliances remotely as well as via Siri voice control. It also tracks your energy usage.
$49.95 $30 off
Eve Energy gives you the ability to control the power status of your plugged-in appliances remotely as well as via Siri thanks to HomeKit support. You don't need to buy an expensive bridge to make it work, either. You can also set your devices to power on or off to suit your schedule and build them into scenes with your other HomeKit devices.
What's particularly great about Eve Energy is its energy tracking functionality. It enables you to monitor the electricity your connected appliances are using and view how much energy you've used during the day, over the last week or month.
If energy monitoring is not your priority, there are many other HomeKit smart plugs available like this 2-Pack of Meross Wi-Fi plugs on sale for $20. They have all of the app- and voice-control functionality you'd expect, without the ability to track your energy usage.
Eve's smart plug only works with Apple's HomeKit smart home system, which is great if that's your platform of choice. If you use one of the other big smart home platforms, you want to pick up a similar Alexa or Google Assistant-compatible smart plug that will play nice with your other gear.
