Here’s an awesome gift for someone we had to share with you. I LOVE them and now have them all throughout the house. Smart Plugs for $22.99 on Amazon.
They are easy to set up and can be controlled from an app on your phone or through your Amazon Echo devices or Google Home.
Once you purchase the plug, you plug into an outlet. Download the kasa app to connect the plug and then be sure to go to your Alexa app to link the plug there. You will have to name each plug and then can have Alexa turn them on and off for you. There are also timers as well for when you are not home.
There are other brand names out there but these received 5 star reviews on Best Buy but the price is better on Amazon. This is the one we have in the pic above. You can also purchase a smaller plus here but they are a little more. Plus there are light switches as well to control any lights in your house that are not lamps.
