Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend up to $60 to try one out? This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.

Just like a WeMo Insight switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, track their energy usage, and set schedules to toggle them automatically. The only major feature it’s lacking is IFTTT support, but it will integrate with an Amazon Echo for voice control.

Other than a very short-lived (and probably erroneous) $24 deal, this is the best price we’ve seen on the energy monitoring version of this smart plug.
