Want to add smarts to just about any dumb device in your home? A “smart plug” is the easiest way to do it, and today is the perfect day to stock up on the most popular smart plug we’ve ever covered. The Wemo Mini Smart Plug is on sale today on Amazon, and the price has only been lower one time since the product was first released. That’s right, it was on Black Friday last year. The current $24.99 price tag for this compact model is the second best price ever, though, and it’s a fantastic deal on a teeny tiny smart plug that works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Definitely grab a few of them now before Amazon sells out.
Here are some highlights from the product page:
- Control from anywhere. Plug in a Wemo Mini Smart Plug, download the free app, and control your lights and appliances from your phone and your voice through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Only needs Wi-Fi. No hub or subscription required.
- Compact size. Wemo Mini features a sleek new form-factor that allows you to stack two Mini Smart Plugs in the same outlet.
- Schedule automatically. Never come home to a dark house. Schedule the fan to turn on before you arrive. Sync lamps and devices to sunrise, sunset, or pre-set times automatically.
- Randomize Lights. The Mini Smart Plug protects your home better than a mechanical timer. “Away Mode” will turn your lights on and off randomly to make it look like you’re home even when you’re not.
- Voice control with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Pair with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant built-in devices like Google Home and control your lights and appliances with your voice.
- Works with Nest. Nest can sync with Wemo for automatic home/away control. Works with IFTTT, connecting you to a whole world of Web apps
