Mini Smart Plug – turn your lights off, remotely

You may want to move into the world of smarthomes but chances are most of your everyday appliances aren’t all that advanced. Give them a nudge into the future with the Mini Smart Plug. This little gadget turns your normal appliances and lights into ones that can be powered on and off remotely.

This won’t make your lamp a smartlamp, you can’t select colors or dim it from your phone. What you can do is set things to to turn and off from your phone. This sounds basic, and it is, but that doesn’t mean it’s not super useful. You can turn on a fan before you enter a room or turn off the lights after you’ve already walked out the door.

It also has a random timer made just for lights so that when you leave for a few days, the lights go on and off randomly, mimicking the real life habits of people. After all, you may turn your lights on around 6 when you get home everyday but probably not exactly at 6 and sometimes you’re late right? Works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple Home kit. You can get one of these for $27.99.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
