The Amazon Smart Plug is on sale for $12.99 as an early Prime Day Deal. This sale is nearly half off the regular price of $24.99 and is the new lowest price that Amazon’s smart plug has ever been. Amazon quietly updated this plug last year and this is the latest model. This smart plug doesn’t do anything special compared to the dozens of other smart plugs on the market, but its advantage comes in its simplicity because it comes pre-linked to your Amazon account. This simplifies installation and will actually automatically connect it to your WiFi if you’ve saved your WiFi password to Amazon in the past. There’s also the advantage of not needing to use a separate app for this plug since it is set up and controlled through the Alexa app. Overall, if you just need a basic smart plug to control something’s power remotely or by voice, it’s tough to beat the Amazon Smart Plug, especially at this all-time low price. Note that you can also get the Amazon Smart Plug + Echo Dot bundle for just $24.99.
While it’s nice that these are cheap… I highly recommend getting the Wemo or Kasa smart plugs over these… if you lose power, these Amazon “Smart” Plugs don’t turn back on to their ON state if they were ON. Wemo & Kasa smart plugs do.
Some time back, maybe during thanksgiving I think, I got this for $1. Will wait for deal again :)
