Smart outlet switches have exploded in popularity in the years since Belkin released the original WeMo switch, and we’ve spotted great deals on two different alternatives today.
Functionally, the $23 Etekcity Smart Wi-Fi Outlet and the $25 TP-Link Smart Switch are pretty similar. They both plug into a standard AC outlet, and let you cut or enable the power to essentially any appliance using a smartphone app. The main difference between the two is that the Etekcity will monitor your energy usage, while the TP-Link is compatible with the Amazon Echo. At these prices, you can’t go wrong either way.
