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 (opens in new tab). 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.
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 (opens in new tab). Meanwhile, if you need smart plugs that are suitable to keep outdoors, the KP400 Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Outdoor Plug (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) and the HS300 Smart Wi-Fi Power Strip (opens in new tab) which fall to $34.99 and $59.99 respectively when you clip the coupon on either of their product pages.
