Overview

Creating a smart home has never been easier. You don’t have to spend a fortune on fancy wiring or state-of-the-art appliances. For a low cost, you can purchase a small plug that will convert any electric-powered item in your home into a smart device. That means you can plug in lamps, toasters, holiday lights and much more and control those items using an app or your voice.

But before you buy a smart plug, there are a few things to consider. The first is the devices you already have. If you own an Amazon smart speaker like an Alexa or Echo Dot, an Amazon smart plug is well worth considering since you’ll simply be able to plug it into the wall and wait for it to connect. Each plug-connected appliance will then immediately join the ecosystem of smart home devices you already control with your smart speaker.

Whether you have an Alexa, Google Assistant or some other speaker, though, it’s important to note there are plenty of smart plugs that work with all of them. Technology has advanced to the point where setup is fairly easy no matter which brand you buy. In fact, Amazon plugs are limited to Amazon devices, so you’ll be in a pickle with your voice control if you ever decide to switch to another type of smart speaker.

App control is one of the best things about a smart plug. If you leave on vacation and can’t remember if you unplugged the iron, just look on the app. You can also control your apps remotely or set your lamps and other items to power on and off on a schedule. Look for a smart plug with an easy-to-use app that has all the features you’re most likely to need.

If energy consumption is a concern, shop for a smart plug that offers reporting on your energy use each month. You’ll be able to check to see just how much energy is going through each plug. If you notice one appliance is particularly energy-draining, you can look for ways to reduce power consumption and possibly knock some dollars and cents off your monthly utility bill.
