Have you ever stepped into a room and realized how dark it was? And then... to solve that problem, you had to lift your arm up and actually flip a switch from the off position to the on position. That's ridiculous. What is this, the Dark Ages? Stop exerting yourself. It's time to turn that archaic 2nd century light switch into a smart switch. The TP-Link Kasa smart switch is on sale for $21.79 on Amazon. Just clip the on-page coupon to take $5 off. This deal brings it down to within a couple bucks of the best price we've seen.

The Kasa switch works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. It works with other smart home systems, too, like Microsoft Cortana, Nest, and IFTTT. No longer do you have to waste the muscles in your arms with the tediousness of touching things. Just ask Alexa to turn on the lights!
You can also control it using your smartphone and the free Kasa app. The app is available on iOS and Android. Again, since your eyes are already locked onto your phone 24/7, it just makes sense.
Use this smart switch to turn electronics and lights on or off from anywhere in the world. You can also use Away Mode to turn devices on and off at different times, to give the appearance that someone is home. Add this switch to a group with other smart devices and control them all at one time.
Installing this switch does require a neutral wire, and it only works in a single-pole setup. However, it does not require advanced electrical knowledge or switch configurations. The Kasa app can actually guide you through the process in a step-by-step installation. You can use the installation guide or videos, too. All you need setup beforehand is a secure 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network.
