See what all the smart plug hype is about with Etekcity's $13 option

Right now you can pick up an Etekcity smart plug for just $12.99 (opens in new tab) at Amazon when you enter the coupon code 7FRQNW4M during checkout. This is a savings of $3 and happens to drop this plug down to its lowest price. While it may not seem like a huge discount, this actually makes it one of the most affordable smart plugs on the market, and it's even Amazon Certified to work with Alexa.

This means that you'll be able to use your Echo Dot (opens in new tab) to control the plugs with just your voice. It also works with Google Assistant, so you can put that Google Home Mini (opens in new tab) you picked up over the holidays to good use.

  • Works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. Power your devices without lifting a finger. Does NOT currently support SmartThings, Homekit, or IFTTT
  • Track power usage for connected devices and figure out which devices use the most energy. You can effectively cut your usage so that you can save money on your next electric bill
  • Easy to install and stable connection. Controlled from different devices and manage your home on your smartphone or tablet from anywhere
  • Get ready to have a smart home and create customized schedule to automatically turn on and off any home electronics or appliances such as lamps, Christmas lighting, coffee maker, etc

The two-pack of these plugs (opens in new tab) is down to $26.99 right now, which is a deal we've seen in the past. If you've been waiting to try these out but only wanted one to start, you won't want to miss out on this deal.

  • Someone needs to make a smart surge protector, with multiple outlets. This will work way better for me...
  • "smart power strip" has some applicable-looking entries on Amazon. Are you looking for something different?
  • I haven't tried this specific product, but i've tried a handful. The issue I've run into most of all is that it covers enough of the outlet, that the second plug can't be used. I've settled with the TP-link mini plug, which doesn't do that.
  • The thing I wonder about with these is the random crappy looking third-party 2-star apps in the play store that go with them. Are those apps required if you're using these with Google Assistant?
  • My issue is they dont work with Google wifi
  • I read some of the reviews on Amazon and some of the questions asked. Not for me at this time. Sounds too sketchy right now.
