The idea of being able to control various outlets, light sockets and light switches around your house from a single app is awesome, right? Apple has been working towards that vision since its announcement of HomeKit. Part of the problem is that some of the accessories needed are expensive, but luckily not all of them have to be.
Right now you can pick up Koogeek's Smart Plug for just $20.99 at Amazon with coupon code XFAKT2KJ. This is a savings of $8 from its regular price, and a match to the lowest we've seen on it. With this plug, you'll be able to use Siri voice commands to control outlets. This lets you turn on a lamp without having to get up, turn off the portable heater that is in a different room without getting out from under the blankets, or starting the pot of coffee in the morning before you leave your bed.
While this may not be a brand you are familiar with, that doesn't mean you have to worry about the security or quality of them. Our friends at iMore explain:
After you perform an initial setup process, Apple's HomeKit framework securely communicates with the accessory to bring you updates in-app and over Siri about the room's temperature, humidity, air quality, and more.
Once you get started with HomeKit accessories in your house you'll want them everywhere, so be sure to grab a few of these while they are available at the lower prices, you won't regret it later!
