This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in December of 2016. Amazon's smart assistant Alexa has revolutionized the way we access online data and listen to music in our homes. Continuing that trend, a number of compatible outlets have hit the market that allow you to control nearly any type of device via simple voice commands. As you might expect, not all are created equal, though. We've done the work and complied a list of the best currently available. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best alexa plug on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

July 26, 2019:

Smart plugs and outlets are great tools for turning everyday electronics and appliances into smart devices without having to invest in a bunch of new stuff. There are three main directions you can go: adapters, in-wall outlets, and power strips. Monoprice and TP-Link both make highly reliable in-wall outlets, and if you want to avoid having bulky connectors everywhere, they're worth a look. Also, if you need to plug in a heavy transformer, they can handle it, whereas a simple go-between adapter may have trouble staying in the wall. The Monoprice is especially interesting because it has two USB ports.

As far as power strips go, the TP-Link is also tops there, but the DMYCO is a reasonable choice if you want to save a few bucks. Keep in mind, though, that the USB ports on the DMYCO are not programmable, and its surge protection may not be as reliable as the TP-Link's. Speaking of TP-Link, you'll notice a few of their Kasa devices on our list. It's a fantastic line of products, both reliable and easy to use, so it's no surprise they have a ton of satisfied users. Their adapters, particularly their Kasa Mini, are probably the easiest to configure, offering essentially plug-and-play installation. And if you're looking for an outdoor plug, check out the iClever, which can withstand rain, sunlight, dust, and even extreme temperatures, so it won't be damaged if you leave it outside all year long.
