The holiday season is here and that means lights, just everywhere lights. We will soon have dancing Santas, Christmas Trees, and festive lights strewn all about our domiciles to brighten the moods of all our guests, and Wemo is a great way to control all of those lights. These items don’t include a hub and you can set them up in just a couple of minutes.
The popular Wemo Mini Smart Plug is WiFi Enabled and works with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit, and it’s on sale today for 47% off thanks to one of Amazon’s Early Black Friday Deals. The little plugs can turn any outlet into a smart outlet for the app of your choosing, and they are just $18.70 today for the tri-outlet model.
First things first, if you are planning on getting a Christmas tree this year, these are life-savers. You can call the plug “Tree” and control the lights with a tap of a button on your smartphone or a voice command. I got one for my parents so they wouldn’t have to fiddle with the cords on their Christmas trees, and it’s a popular addition to the holidays. You can have these connected to fans, any lights that you don’t have traditional Alexa bulbs for, talking reindeer, or traditional Christmas lights. Pretty much anything with a plug. You don’t want to leave tree lights on overnight for fire-safety, and this is a great way to keep control of you sparkling house.
You can find the promotion right here on Amazon, but as a Deal of the Day this is a very limited offer. The other promotions on Wemo controls include: Wemo Dimmer WiFi Light Switch for $20 off; Wemo Insight Smart Plug with Energy Monitoring for $5 off; Wemo Light Switch for $27 off; and the Wemo Mini and Insight Smart Plug Bundle for $21 off.
When the season is over you can store these with your tree or lights and the onboard memory should remember all of your settings the next time you need them, or they can be repurposed for New Year’s decorations or other lights, fans, toys, security lights, cat toys, or kitchen appliances that you may want to turn into a smart home controlled item.
