Must read


You do not have to outfit your whole home with expensive equipment – with potentially prying eyes – to enjoy the ease of living that comes with a smart home. A cheap smart plug will do. They can go a long way of making devices, like lamps or televisions, go from carefree to smart with the quick installation of an app. These are our favorite smart plugs we’ve tested (and the ones we didn’t like).

We have plenty of other recommendations to help you build a smarter home, so check out our guides to the best. Smart bulbs, Security cameras, Smart speakers, and Smart screens.

Update January 2021: We have a new finalist. We have also added smart power strips from Monoprice and APC. The Eufy and Samsung SmartThings sockets, which were in our honorable mentions, have been discontinued.
