Start with TP-Link's Smart Home basics from plugs to bulbs and more at up to 50% off

For someone uninitiated to the world of smart home technology, it can seem to be overly complicated and expensive, but it's actually much simpler and more affordable than you may think — especially if you get lucky and find a sale going on like today's. Most smart home products are designed to make your life easier after all, and all you need to get started is something small like TP-Link's 3-pack of HS105 Mini Smart Plugs. They're normally priced around $20 at Amazon, but today's sale snags you three for just $37.99 total. B&H even includes free shipping with its purchase.

Several of TP-Link's popular Kasa smart home products are on sale at B&H while supplies last with free shipping, though you'll need to clip a coupon to snag the lowest price for some.

These smart plugs let you control whatever's plugged into them with a free app on your phone or tablet, and you don't need to be nearby either. You can power them on or off manually, schedule them to come on at a certain time each day, turn on Away mode, and even voice control them with a device compatible with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, such as the Echo Dot. Meanwhile, if you need smart plugs that are suitable to keep outdoors, the KP400 Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Outdoor Plug has most of the same features with dual outlets. Clipping the coupon on its product page will drop its price to just $28.99 for a limited time.

Smart bulbs are a perfect way to get started too, especially if you were just planning on plugging a lamp into one of the smart plugs above. The LB130 Wi-Fi Smart LED Bulb also uses the free Kasa app for your phone or tablet, giving you the ability to control it anywhere and even change its color with over 16 million options to choose from. Thanks to the 50% coupon on its product page, you can pick one up for only $19.99 right now.

Two other discounted options at B&H today include the HS210 Smart Wi-Fi Light Switches 3-Way Kit and the HS300 Smart Wi-Fi Power Strip which fall to $34.99 and $59.99 respectively when you clip the coupon on either of their product pages.
