Smart plugs are simple to set up and have many benefits including:
Check on your connected devices and turn them on or off via an app from your smart phone or tablet. Add voice control by pairing it with your Amazon Echo.
Most smart plugs have a scheduling system to turn your lamps on at a set time so you can come home to a well-lit environment.
You can set your devices to come on and off at different times so it looks like someone is home, even when you're away.
