Do you know someone who has an Amazon or Google Smart Home device who is looking to do more with their smart speakers? These little plugs will let you turn anything you connect to them (lights, air conditioners, space heaters, etc.) into "smart" devices that you can turn on or off with your voice via Wi-Fi. Even if you don't have an Alexa or Google Home, you can still control devices plugged into the Smart Plug Mini via TP-Link's own Kasa app. They're great for turning on the lights while you're still fumbling your way through the door, or for turning on your heater a few minutes before entering a room to chase off the chill. These models from TP-Link also undercut most of the smart plug competition, and work well in our personal experience.
