Adding smarts to your home can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. That’s particularly true around the holiday shopping season, when Cyber Monday sales can make it easier than ever to pick up smart plugs on the cheap. Amazon is currently running a huge sale on BN-Link smart plugs, dropping their prices by up to nearly 40%.
The sale brings big discounts on a bunch of different plugs and switches. Some of them are equipped with Wi-Fi, letting you control them with your smartphone. Others are just plugs and switches with timers built in, making them a little more old school. Either way, you can snap some up for as little $8.
At the most basic, there are plugs and switches with timers built in, making it simple to automate lights and other electronics around your house. If you want to step things up, you can snag some smart plugs with Wi-Fi built in, letting you use your phone as a remote control.
The Wi-Fi equipped smart plugs go into your outlet, and then you just plug your appliances into the plug. From there, you can control power to whatever is plugged in from a phone app.
The app even works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant devices, so you can control plugs with your voice. Conveniently, Amazon is running a big sale on its latest Amazon Echo Dot and Echo models, dropping the cheapest model down to $29. In other words, you can pick up some plugs and an Echo for far less than the cost of just an Echo would normally be without these sales.
The easiest way to take advantage of this sale is to pick up a two-pack of the BN-Link Wi-Fi heavy duty smart plugs, which are down to $11.19 from $17.99 with this sale. That makes them just $5.60 a piece. If you have outdoor gadgets you’d like to just keep on a timer, you can snap up a 24-hour outdoor timer with a light sensor for just $9.51.
If you’re just getting started with smart home accessories, there are a ton of other ones on sale as well. One of the best deals that’s worth checking out is the Ring Video Doorbell 3, which is currently $60 off at $140.
