Smart plugs let you add lights, appliances, and more products that you already own into your smart home ecosystem. Say you have a lamp that you wish was voice-activated. Simply plug it into one of these smart plugs and ask Alexa or Google Assistant whenever you want to control your lamp. Of course, you'll need a compatible Amazon Echo or Google Nest device too, such as the Echo Dot smart speaker. Luckily, many of them are on sale right now if you're looking to buy one.

Unlike many other smart home products, there is no hub or subscription required to use these Teckin smart plugs to the fullest extent of their abilities. Using the Smart Life app on your iOS or Android device, you'll be able to power on and off the plugs no matter where you are in the world, put them on a schedule, group them together to be controlled as a set, and more.

These smart plugs have a few other added features that you won't find on most others; there's an integrated USB port that lets you plug a charging cable in to power up your phone or any other USB-powered device. That also means you can power up two devices simultenously using the AC outlet and USB port. According to customer reviews, you can even control the AC outlet and USB port separately from one another within the free Smart Life app. That's another surprise, as many of the smart plugs that you'll find with a built-in USB port usually doesn't extend smart functionality to it.

This four-pack ships for free, though you could receive your order even faster with an Amazon Prime membership.
