Is this deal for me?

This TP-Link Smart Plug with energy monitoring is down to $29.99 on Amazon. Six months ago it was selling as high as $40. It has sold for around $35 most recently, but it hasn't dropped lower than that since 2016.

These smart plugs don't require a hub. They connect directly to your Wi-Fi and work with voice controls like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You can use the free Kasa app to turn them on or off and schedule times. These plugs have an Away-Mode that can turn your electronics on and off at different times to give the appearance that someone is at home even though you're not.

The smart plug has 4.1 stars based on 9,484 user reviews on Amazon.


  • What makes this deal worth considering? - This is the best price on this smart plug since 2016. If you need to add some intelligence to your electronics, this is a good deal.
  • Things to know before you buy! - This model, the HS110, lets you monitor energy usage from your phone's app. If you don't care about that, you can get the HS100 for only $25. It's the same plug just without energy monitoring.
