Make your home smarter
For the uninitiated, a smart plug is a small doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance — think coffee maker, TV, lamp — and enables you to operate said device through an app or a smart speaker. The upshot? It empowers you to achieve the formerly impossible, like turning off the lights without getting up from the couch or brewing java from bed in the morning with almost no effort.
Here's how they work: Simply plug one of the Aoycocr Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plugs into a wall outlet, then plug in your appliance of choice. The Mini communicates with your Wi-Fi network and allows you to operate your gadget via app. You can use the Aoycocr app (so you're covered whether you have an Android or an iPhone) and control the item with your phone. Think of these plugs as 'The Clapper,' but for the digital age. Ideal for the upcoming holiday season too.
"Remember the Clapper? These are better. These smart plugs were the perfect compliment to the bulbs and switches I already own," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "What’s more, the setup on these was much easier than a lot of the other smart things I’ve installed. No need to have a hub. You just scan the barcode on the box to get the app, and you’re up and running in less than a minute. Alexa integration could not be any easier either. Right now, I’m using these two in order to automate a coffee pot and a tabletop fountain. The fountain goes on or off on the half hour, so I always have a sense of the time of day by looking at it or hearing it. Come Christmas, I’ll probably get another set for the tree and other lights. These would be perfect for Halloween decorations, too."
Speaking of Alexa (no pun intended), you can even connect these smart plugs to the Echo Dot or Google Home Mini to control things with your voice via Alexa or Google Assistant. After you sync them up, just say ‘Hey Alexa (or Hey Google), turn on my kitchen lights!’ Easy peasy!
"Love! Works perfectly with Alexa. I’m obsessed with these smart plugs and find every excuse to get a new one," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I currently have three (bedside lamp, Himalayan Rock light and coffeemaker) all of them were super easy to set up and after the first one Alexa automatically picked up a new plug any time it finished pairing to the smart life app. They all work seamlessly!"
At $19 for a four-pack with promo code 3591TPTU (was $30), these Aoycocr Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plugs make everyday life run a whole lot smoother.
As one savvy Amazon shopper put it: "Inexpensive smart solution that works very well."
