Since you’re hunkering down at home, you might as well make things as easy as possible for yourself. We’re talking about the important stuff, like flicking off the TV without getting up from the couch or turning on your coffee maker while snuggling in bed.

What you need are smart plugs, and we found great ones. Right now, you can score this Teckin Wi-Fi Smart Plug (four-pack) for $28, or $18 off with on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s a sweet 40 percent discount—and breaks down to $7 per plug.

Not only is this the all-time lowest price we’ve seen on this four-pack; these smart-home plugs have earned a flawless five-star rating from more than 1,260 Amazon reviewers.

And of course, you’ll get free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

This is how it works

Simply plug one of these smart plugs into a wall outlet, then plug in anything from a lamp or a TV to a coffeemaker. Connect the plug to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Teckin Smart app (it works with Android phones and Apple iPhones too). And that’s it. Now you can control just about anything in your home with your phone. Shoppers also love their shape.

“These oblong style plugs are perfect,” raved a delighted shopper. “I’ve been using the older round style Teckin plugs for a few years now and they work great. But two of that old style don't fit side by side in a standard wall outlet. With this new shape they are wider and shorter, so two plugs do fit in a single outlet. Now you can control two separate devices from one outlet without extra cords. Perfect!”

Better than Wemo and TP-Link

Meanwhile, there are other smart home plugs on the market, of course, like the Wemo Mini Smart Plug and TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug. But Amazon shoppers seem to prefer the Teckin Smart Plug more, especially its app.

“I am just amazed how simple these were to set up. All four up and working in less than 10 minutes! And their app is even better than Wemo or TP-Link. These are everything they say and super simple to use,” shared another five-star reviewer.

Bottom line

At 40 percent off, these Teckin Smart Home Plugs also work with the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants and just make your life less stressful, and who wouldn’t want that—especially with the holidays coming up. “They were amazing with the Christmas lights and decorations around the house. Since they were compatible with Alexa it made it even better,” added a satisfied Amazon shopper.

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
