The best smart plugs are one of the simplest ways to start a smart home, allowing you to switch any appliance connected to it on or off from your smartphone, even when you’re not at home. However, as you’re likely to need several plugs per room, they can be a pricey purchase, so a good smart plug deal is always welcome.

In the US, Amazon has slashed 24% off the price of the TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug Power Strip KP303, reducing it to $22.79 from $29.99. This is the lowest price we've seen for the smart power strip – beating even the prices we saw on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. (Not in the US?

Amazon has knocked more than $6 off the cost of this smart power strip, which has three smart sockets and standard USB ports on the one device. This is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this smart plug, beating the deal we saw on Prime Day recently by just over $1. We don’t know how long it will last – so we suggest that you snap up this smart plug deal now. 

Smart plugs can offer peace of mind to forgetful types, who often can’t remember if they’ve turned off the coffee maker or hair straighteners before leaving the house. As we’ve already mentioned, the TP-Link Kasa Smart Plug Power Strip KP303 has three smart sockets, which can be controlled remotely – and works out cheaper than buying three separate smart plugs. 

On test, we found the KP303 simple to set up, and responsive when we turned it on or off from our smartphone and when using Alexa. It’ll also integrate with Google Assistant, too. The sockets each have a power button next to them, if you want to control them manually. There’s also a handy Away mode, which comes in handy if you’re trying to simulate occupancy as it’ll turn the devices connected to the sockets on or off at random intervals.
