Making lamps and appliances in your home smarter is more affordable than you might think. Right now, Amazon has TP-Link's 4-pack of Tapo Mini smart plugs on sale for just $24.99. This 4-pack regularly sells for $40, though it has dropped to around $30 recently. Regardless, at just $25 you'll be getting the four plugs for their best price yet, paying just over $6 per plug.
Once these smart plugs are plugged into an outlet in your home, you can begin turning electronics on and off from anywhere using an app on your phone. All you have to do is plug that device into the smart plug and download the free Tapo app to get started. With the app, you can control whether the plug is on or off, set schedules, and more. There's even an Away Mode that enables the plug to periodically turn lamps on and off as if you were home to deter potential intruders.
Plus, these plugs can be voice-controlled when you connect it with an Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant device, like the Echo Dot smart speaker. Whether you're just being lazy and don't want to get out of bed or if you're not home at all, the Tapo plugs might just become your new favorite accessories. TP-Link includes a 2-year warranty with your purchase, too.
