Making things easy for yourself around the home is always a good thing. It means more time for you and less time doing repetitive and boring tasks. Who wouldn't like to be able to flick off the lamp across the room without getting up from the couch, or turn on the coffeemaker while grabbing a few extra "snooze" minutes in bed?
How to make this dream come true? Smart plugs! And we found a great one. Right now you can score a four-pack of Teckin Wi-Fi Smart Plugs for $25, or $5 off with on-page coupon, at Amazon — that breaks down to just $6.25 per plug — ahead of Prime Day.
Not only is this the all-time lowest price we’ve seen on this four-pack; these smart-home plugs have earned a five-star rating from more than 1,400 Amazon reviewers.
And of course, you’ll get free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime. Not yet a member? We're going to make that easy for you too: Just sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
This is how it works
Simply plug one of these smart plugs into a wall outlet, then plug in anything from a lamp or a TV to a coffeemaker. Connect the plug to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Teckin Smart app (it works with Android phones and Apple iPhones too). And that’s it. Now you can control just about anything in your home with your phone.
This, the latest Teckin plug, also comes in an especially convenient shape, which shoppers love. “These oblong plugs are perfect,” raved a delighted shopper. “I’ve been using the older round Teckin plugs for a few years now and they work great. But two of that old style don't fit side by side in a standard wall outlet. With this new shape they are wider and shorter, so two plugs do fit in a single outlet. Now you can control two separate devices from one outlet without extra cords. Perfect!”
There are, of course, other smart-home plugs on the market, like the Wemo Mini Smart Plug and TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug. But Amazon shoppers seem to prefer the Teckin Smart Plug more, especially because of its no-brainer app. “I am just amazed how simple these were to set up. All four up and working in less than 10 minutes! And their app is even better than Wemo or TP-Link. These are everything they say and super- simple to use,” shared another five-star reviewer.
At $25 with on-page coupon (was $30), these Teckin Smart Home Plugs are the lowest you're likely to find them. Oh, and they also work with the Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice assistants, raising the question: Seriously, could these make your life any easier?

Resident Evil is one of the most famous video game franchises of all time. The zombie horror world it created has a fan following of its own. Other than the numerous games, there are 12 Resident Evil movies and shows, which, in a chronological order, would help even those who haven’t played any of the games clearly understand the core storyline. Developed by Japanese game developer Capcom, the franchise began with the first Resident Evil game in 1996. The hugely successful game was followed by R
When a luxury powerhouse such as Hermès releases a timepiece, what we often anticipate is how it would deliver when it comes to style and design… and deliver it did, with its 2022 novelties. Here are our favourite picks of the bunch. Travel is a state of mind, and Hermès is here to prove that with its watches. In the year 2022 when physical travel is still regarded as a thing of privilege, many brands revisit the theme, evoking feelings of nostalgia and wanderlust. And while Hermès is not the fi

Full disclosure, we’re not sure if this classifies as a drink story or fashion news. This bit of confusion comes courtesy of Heineken, which has announced the release of limited-edition sneakers called Heinekicks. Yes, the world-famous beer brand is hopping onto the sneaker bandwagon with its own set of kickers. The best part? They actually contain soles filled with Heineken Silver. Also, seven of 32 pairs created will be available in Singapore. To create these new sneakers, Heineken roped in th
With Louis Vuitton approaching its 20th anniversary in watchmaking, we take a journey through time with Michel Navas and examine the iconic Tambour. It is historical irony that some of the watchmaking industry’s greatest achievements were born in Paris, not Geneva. In 17th century Paris, Place Dauphine was home to the workshops of Ferdinand Berthoud, Jean-Antoine Lépine, and a young Abraham Louis Breguet. Each man shaped watchmaking destiny in their own way. Echoing his respected French peers, L
