Smart Plugs For Google Home

I hope you would have figured out from the title of this blog post that I’m gonna recommend 5 smart plugs for Google Home.

Needless to say, there are loads and loads of roughage out in the market, and you need to stay away from it.

Sometimes you may end up buying a wrong product just because you don’t have information about it.

Many clients asked me for the cheap smart plugs.

I don’t have options but to update them about the disadvantage of using cheap smart plugs.

Most of the plugs will do bad to you rather than any good.

The worst part is that the cheap plugs aren’t compatible with most of the smart devices.

I suggest you should at least have a budget of $20 to $40 to be on the safer side.

Below are the smart plugs that have performed really well with the Google Home.

I hope you’ll also have a similar experience.

If you’re worried about NOT having the smart home hub.

Then, there is a piece of good news for you, yes you guessed it correctly.

If I talk about the price, then it fits in the same bracket as others. However, it performs far better than its competitor.

I bought a couple of them for my office, and yes they are working fine.

If you’re still skeptical, then I would suggest you should check for the customer reviews on Amazon.

I hope it will definitely help you to make the decision.

Belkin Wemo Insight

Most of the smart plugs out in the market have almost similar functionality.

Moreover, Belkin Wemo Insight is a bit different as compared to its counterpart.

In fact, it can monitor energy usage and costs.

Though I tried other smart plugs also that claim to monitor energy usage.

Nonetheless, I wasn’t satisfied with their performance.

Well, you can check the current price of Belkin Wemo Insight on Amazon.

I’m not gonna discuss whether it’s good or bad rather I would say it’s important if you want to save your electronics from power surges.

I check for the price and reviews on Amazon.

I was satisfied with the customer reviews and then I bought 3 of them.

Definitely, it was a smart buy.

They support 4 USB plugged in items and 4 A/C plugged in items.

Needless to say, they are compatible with Google Home.

Meross Wi-Fi Smart Outdoor Plug

Well, the Meross Wi-Fi Smart Outdoor Plug is the last on my list.

These smart plugs work amazingly well for outdoor use.

I’m literally in love with this plug because it allows me to control Christmas lighting, landscape lighting, and even fountain through a couple of clicks on my smartphone.

Time and again, I’ve accepted that I’m a lazy person so I hate going out in cold.

Few times I persuaded my husband for the same but the response wasn’t something that I can talk about.

However, this smart plug comes with a timer that can help you to schedule the timing for Christmas lighting and other similar attributes.

I highly recommend this smart plug and trust me, you’ll NOT regret buying it.
