A WI-FI SMART PLUG.
AVAILABLE FOR $50, the D-Link DSP-W215 makes it easy to add smarts to normal appliances. The device connects to your existing Wi-Fi network, so no hub, or other D-Link products are required. The plug is controlled via the mydlink mobile app, which allows manual on/off control, as well as scheduling. Taking it a step further, the plug also monitors power use, and can be used to remotely monitor exactly how much an appliance is adding to your power bill. Getting the smart plug connected to your network is easy, thanks to the WPS button, and the app is available on Android and iOS. The plugs also integrate into other services, including Google Home, allowing them to be controlled via voice commands. Like a power board, the smart plug has built-in thermal overload shut off, if too much power is being used. The smart plug can also be used with other D-Link products, such as the movement sensor or security camera. For those who want a slightly better deal, there is also a kit of two smart plugs available for $89.
