Imagine being able to use a simple app on your smartphone to turn on house lights while you’re away from home. The ability to control lights from anywhere can give the illusion that someone is home, or offer you peace of mind when you return late at night. Thanks to smart plugs, this scenario can be a reality. Wi-Fi outlets and plugs are smart home technology devices that work by connecting to your Wi-Fi network. When a device is connected to a Wi-Fi plug, you can use an app on your phone or tablet to turn it off and on when needed. For example, if you’re lying in bed and want to turn on your fan or other heating and cooling appliances to be more comfortable, you don’t have to get out from under the covers to make that happen. Not to mention, you can even use smart speakers with voice control to activate or shut off electronics attached to smart outlets. Best Buy carries a wide array of models from top-notch brands, so you’ll have an easier time choosing the best smart plugs and outlets for your needs.
Finding the best smart plugs for your space.
Automate your appliances and lighting with Wi-Fi outlets that you can set up in any room of your home. Smart sockets aren’t relegated only to the inside; there are also outdoor smart plugs that are built to withstand the elements, letting you control electric patio heaters, string lights, and more. Smart power strips are ideal if you have multiple appliances and electronics you want to schedule to turn on at the same time each day, such as a coffee maker so you can wake up to a fresh-brewed pot, or a TV to watch the morning news. Plugging lamps into sockets with smart capabilities can boost your home’s security and save energy for more sustainable living by turning off lights that are left on accidentally. No matter what your lifestyle, we'll help you find the best smart plugs for your space so you can wirelessly control appliances, lights and more.
