Smart home devices aren’t just smart bulbs. You can make just about any part of your house smart these days, even things as simple as wall outlets. If you want to get one of the best smart plugs, this incredible option from Kasa is cheaper than ever this Cyber Monday.
The Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug Mini is currently available for $7, a step down from its regular $10 price. This means you can make an outlet in your home smart for the price of a cheeseburger, making it a deal that’s hard to pass up if you’re looking to get started with the smart home ecosystem.
What exactly does a smart plug do? You can quickly turn your home appliances that are not yet “smart” on or off, such as lamps, toasters, fans, or coffee makers. Devices connected to a smart plug can be turned on or off via the plug, though it doesn’t work well with everything, such as devices that need time to shut down properly, like desktop computers.
You can control the outlet from a phone or tablet with the Kasa app, or connect it to Alexa, Google Assistant, or IFTTT for easier control and automation. Plus, you can even automate whether you want a specific item to turn on or off at certain times of the day, or during specific periods, like holidays.
