1. Kasa Smart Plug Mini, Smart Home Wifi outlet works with Alexa & Google

20 Best Smart Home Devices That Work With Alexa

Kasa Smart WiFi Plug Mini by TP Link Reliable WiFi Connection, No Hub Required, Works with Alexa Echo & Google Assistant (HS105)

Price: $21.01 At Amazon.

Promising review:

I’m so pleased with these plugs (I own two of the bigger ones, too, and like that these don’t cover the second outlet). I’ve just used them for lamps, so far, but being able to set them to come on at “sunset” instead of a fixed time is fantastic — no more fiddling around with timers as the days grow longer or shorter throughout the year; no more adjusting for Daylight Savings Time, etc.! Being able to ask my Amazon Echo to turn a light on or off as needed is just so cool (I’m new enough to these technologies to be excited by them). Set-up was easy, though I wish there was an iPad version of the accompanying TP-link Kasa app instead of just an iPhone version.

Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances/lights on and off in an Alzheimer's patient's home. I can remotely make sure things are off by simply turning them on/off in the Amazon Alexa app - super simple to use and really helps me out. Now I don't have to drive over there to make sure the lights are off, or the AC or TV are off, etc. Thank you!

4. Gosund Smart Light Switch, In-wall Wifi Smart Switch that Works with Alexa and Google Home

Gosund Smart Light Switch

Do You Feel Tired About Repetitive Manual Switch Control Everyday ? It's Time To Have Gosund Smart Switches At Home:

Promising review:

I bought two of these and they worked so well I ended up getting another four. I like how they are easy to install, work great with Alexa and also have a great app for setting up automations like turning on lights at sunset and off at sunrise or a set time. The box is a lot bigger than a standard switch so you have to make sure you have room in your junction box and you also need a neutral wire so be aware and check before buying. Otherwise, great investment into making your home smarter and automating your lights.

5. BERENNIS Smart Light Bulb

BERENNIS Smart Light Bulb

BERENNIS LED Smart WiFi Bulb is an easy, affordable way to add colorful, smart lighting to your home, featuring 16 million colors and thousands of whites. Connect multiple bulbs in an APP without hub and enjoy smart light in every room.

Promising review:

I tried 3 different kinds but nothing could beat this one. I love the APP it was easy to install and easy to setup the light. I think it's plenty bright enough especially at warm white is full brightness. I love that in the app I can set it to change colors at certain times so as it gets closer to bedtime it gets calmer. Setup with Alexa and Google Home super easy. I was using the big WEMO plugs but this is so much easier and smarter. I would highly recommend! They are slightly larger than normal bulbs or even there 4.5W bulbs which I did find too dim, but it's not a big deal. They look great and work great. Hope this helps!

Price: $29.99 At Amazon.

6. Smart Power Strip, Wifi Surge Protector, Voice Control with Alexa & Google Home

Smart Power Strip

Promising review:

This is a great smart power Strip. Very simple to setup. I like that the AC Outlets are very spaced out making it easier to plug in multiple devices. I love being able to control each AC outlet separately. It was very easy to link up to my Amazon Alexa. I like that the app allows me to turn on and off the device when I'm away from home. This has a very good price making it cheaper than buying multiple smart plugs at a higher price. I am going to buy another one for my bedroom.

ANNKE 1080P Home Security Camera

Promising review:

So, I’m giving this camera a 5 star review, but I also want to pass on some info to any prospective buyers. 1st - it’s a great WiFi enabled security cam. I’m using it as a baby cam and the picture is great, both in daylight and in the dark. It pans via my phone and has 2 way audio. Now the advice: the software that the instructions recommend does not work for me. I could not get the camera configured with it. A little internet search showed me to use the APP “MIPC” instead. It is by the same company, has a ton of options, and works great. Buy this camera - do we load the right APP - and go!

15. Vintar 16-Color Motion Sensor LED Toilet Night Light

Vintar 16-Color Motion Sensor LED Toilet Night Light

Promising review:
Vintar 16-Color Motion Sensor LED Toilet Night Light

I'll admit, I was very exhausted and wedding stressed when I purchased this lightning deal off of amazon. I forgot about it and my fiancée just gave me that WTF look. Anyways, we both LOOOOOVE it! You can set it on one color or do multiple where it continues to change. It has a sensor and turns on when it's dark. It lights up the toilet bowl but also the whole bathroom & really is the perfect nightlight. If it broke, I would seriously buy another one that day. Plus, my fiancée enjoys peeing on the ever-changing colors because he is a man-child.

17. Meross Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Remote, APP Control, Compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant

Meross Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Remote

Promising review:

Extremely happy with this. Many years ago I bought the Chamberlain MyQ kit to give to control my garage on my phone. I wanted this feature because there are soooo many times I would drive off and think yo myself, "did I close the garage?" So then I have to turn back and waste my time. So with that MyQ I was happy for a bit. But I wasn't happy that when I closed the garage thru the app the garage would beep like crazy since it was a "safety" precaution. Because of that I never used the MyQ app at night since I would piss off my neighbors. Also Google unveiled Google assistant support but Chamberlain decided to charge a fee to use it. I was upset about it and was going to pay for it until I found out you couldn't open your garage with your voice because supposedly anybody could just yell out ok Google open the garage.

Meross Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener Remote

Then came this guy. I installed this in about 30 minutes, my original wall button and MyQ app still works. When I close my garage thru the meross app the garage doesn't beep because it thinks it's being closed by pressing the wall button. I can use voice commands to open or close the garage which is awesome. And FYI, when you use voice commands to open the garage you have to say a pin number that you created in the app. Very smart idea i can't believe Chamberlain didn't think of it since MyQ+Google assistant integration was out for 2 years.
