This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you have lights in your yard, you know that it's not always easy to remember to turn them on and off. And trudging outside in the middle of the night is no fun (nor is running up your electricity bill). An outdoor smart plug can easily solve that problem. These weather-resistant outlets allow you to set a timer, control them via WiFi, or even use voice commands through a smart speaker. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best outdoor smart plug on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 30, 2018:

Made sure to get a variety of sockets. These seem to range from one to three individual outlets. All of them connect to a smartphone over a wifi network. Most have their own app, but can also be controlled by third-party apps like Amazon Alexa, SmartThings, etc.
