In our Echo Dot 3rd gen review, we were impressed with the improved sound quality and sleek rounded design of the smart speaker.
When you add the smart plug, you can turn electrics on or off in your home using your voice with Alexa. Or you can use the kasa app (available for Android and iOS) to control devices from anywhere in the world.
In our TP-Link Kasa HS105 review, we liked the compact design, which means it won't block nearby outlets. In fact, you can install two smart plugs side by side. We also liked the handy Home/Away mode.
Other features of the TP-Link include the ability to create schedules, so you can automatically have appliances and other devices turn on and off at appointed times. Or you can create a scene so that you control multiple devices with a single button.
