If you want to set up a smart home, you may not have to pay as much as you think. Sure, you could buy lights that turn on when you get home or a fridge that knows when you’re out of milk. Alternatively, you could just get a Wireless Wall Tap Smart Plug and turn anything you connect into a smart device.

For a limited time, this simple way to turn your dumb house into a smart home is on sale for $39.99 (regularly $49).

These smart plugs make smart home integration easy

If you come home late, you probably have to decide between fumbling in the dark for a light switch or leaving the lights on all day. It’s even worse when you’re on vacation. You have to choose between leaving your devices on 24/7 to keep your home safe and looking lived-in, or saving money on power while your abode looks empty and vulnerable.

With these Wireless Wall Tap Smart Plugs, you can control your connected devices remotely from an app on your phone. Just plug in a lamp or TV, and you can turn it on or off from the other side of town or from another country with the Eco4Life app.

Plus, if you work in the office during the day, these plugs let you set schedules to power on your appliances right before you get home. Or, if you’re home and want quick results, just use voice controls using Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa. For example, you could turn on your portable AC with a quick shout or activate your humidifier on your way home. Either way, your smart plugs can help keep your home feeling exactly how you want it.

The Wireless Wall Tap Smart Plug also protects your appliances from short circuits and power surges. Finally, four USB ports let you charge your devices from the same outlet that controls all your bedroom lighting.

Anyone can turn their home into a smart home; it doesn’t take anything more than a few plugs and an app. For a limited time, you can get this Wireless Wall Tap Smart Plug on sale for $39.99 (regularly $49).
