Setting up a Smart Home might sound expensive, but it can save you a ton of hassle. Newegg is currently offering the newest version of the Nest Thermostat (E) along with two TP-Link Smart Plugs for just $187.64. The thermostat itself has only ever been available for $169 so far, so being able to grab two Smart Plugs along with it for $10 each is a steal.
The Nest Thermostat allows you to control your AC from anywhere in the world, and the best part is that the newest version is $80 cheaper than the previous model. Speak to your Google Assistant to tell it to set the temperature lower, or ask Amazon's Alexa to set a schedule if you know you don't want to keep your home chilled all day while you're at work. You can even have full control over it via the Nest app.
Included with the thermostat are two TP-Link Smart Plugs which can also be controlled from anywhere. After plugging one of these into a power outlet, connect something like your TV or lamp into it to gain better control over their power usage. Like the previously-mentioned Nest Thermostat, these Smart Plugs can be controlled via a free app - Kasa for Mobile - which allows you to schedule on-times or set an Away mode which would turn your devices on and off at random intervals to deter intruders. These generally sell for $25 apiece so a $15 savings on each one is a really great deal.
