The best smart plugs are an easy way to kick-start your smart home, allowing you to control whatever device is plugged into it; whether that’s a lamp, radio, or even an air purifier from your smartphone, even when you’re not at home. You’ll probably need more than just one if you plan on automating your entire home, so a good smart plug deal is always welcome.

In the UK, Amazon has slashed 45% off the price of the TP-Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug Slim KP105 reducing it to £10.99 from £19.99. This isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this smart plug – it has dropped as low as £9.00 although this wasn't on Black Friday and Cyber Monday – but it’s still a hefty saving.  If you can wait a little longer, there's still the chance that it might be discounted this low again on Amazon Prime Day 2021, which is happening on June 21 and 22.

Amazon has knocked more than £9 off the cost of this smart plug, which works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. While this isn’t the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this smart plug, it’s still good value and the offer won’t last long. So, you should snap up this smart plug deal now. 

The TP-Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug Slim KP105 is a compact, simple to use smart plug. In tests, we found it was easy to set-up and was responsive when we used both the app and Alexa to turn it on or off. The plug even made a reassuring sound when it switched on.

As well as setting a schedule from the app, as you’d expect, it also has a handy Away mode, which can turn the smart plug on and off at random intervals. This is useful if you’re trying to simulate occupancy in your home, and a lamp or radio is connected to the plug.
