The easiest way to get a connected home is with smart plugs. Simply plug them into a power outlet and almost anything in your home will be smart. The best ones integrate with voice assistants such as Siri and Google Assistant, and can even work with Apple HomeKit. If you’re considering purchasing one of these smart plugs, make sure it’s compatible with your device. If you’re not sure which one to choose, here’s a quick guide:
Some smart plugs are a bit chunkier than they look in pictures. Also, check the dimensions carefully, because some can block other outlets. If you want a compact smart plug, the TP-Link HS105 is a good choice. The iHome ISP6X is also a good option. The Belkin WeMo Mini is a smaller, but great alternative.
