Here’s a smart plug that’s a bit different. It has a unique design, with the plug-in located on the right side panel instead of the front.
It’s a little pricier, weighing in at around $30. Many people are adamant that it’s well worth it, so don’t run away just yet!
This design is ideal for wall outlets, but could be a bit cramped if you’re using a power strip. The power button is located on the left side by itself, so it’s easily accessible.
There’s a customizable LED night light located in the front, which is a nice added feature. This smart plug also has a screen up front that shows you all the iDevices currently in your home.
The iDevice Switch is known for being a steady workhorse, with wifi and energy monitoring. It’s compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant. It also works with iPhone and Android —just download the app.
Setting it up is pretty simple. Just scan the HomeKit code and enter your wifi password. That automatically allows Siri to work. Getting Alexa and Google Assistant dialed up takes a couple more steps, but it’s easy to do.
