Want an Amazon Smart Plug for $5? Tell Alexa to order it for you – CNET
Thankfully, that’s not the only way to get this deal: You can also get the Smart Plug as a $4.99 add-on when ordering devices such as the Echo Show 5 (which just went on sale for $49.99, a $40 savings).
If you’ve never used a plug like this before, it adds various “smart” features to your outlet. You can not only set up timers and the like, but also issue voice commands. For example, “Alexa, turn off the lamp in the living room.”
