Like the idea of a Belkin WeMo Switch, but not willing to spend $40 to try one out. This TP-Link alternative has a nearly identical feature set for half the price.

Just like a WeMo switch, TP-Link’s Smart Plug will let you turn appliances on and off from your smartphone, 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. [TP-Link Smart Plug, $20]
