This $26 smart power strip is basically four Alexa smart plugs in one

BGR — Maren Estrada

If you buy a smart plug made by a big brand, you’re going to pay between $20 and $30 per plug. Even if you go with a smaller brand you’re looking at around $15 each unless you catch a good sale. Here’s another option: instead of spending up to $30 on one smart plug, spend the same amount or even less on a Teckin Smart Power Strip. It has four individually controllable smart outlets that work with an app, IFTTT, Alexa, or Google Assistant. Why control one device when you can control four for the same price!?

Here are the highlights from the product page:

  • REMOTE CONTROL – Once this smart power strip is connected successfully, you can control the power of your electrical items on/off by the free App (smart life). Even you are not at home, you can easily control your home electronics on or off from anywhere. Also, you can control the switch separately via your phone. Easy to use and install, required a secured 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection.
  • VOICE CONTROL – Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google home assistant and IFTTT, control your home appliances with the smart plug by simply giving voice commands to Alexa or Google Assistant. No Hub Required, the smart power strip works with any Wi-Fi router without the need for a separate hub or paid subscription service.
  • MULTIPLE SAFEGUARDS – TECKIN Smart Power Strip is UL approved and it is made of high quality materials. Support 110~240V, 10A maximum load. Circuit breaker automatically breaks off when the current exceeds threshold, preventing plugged-in high temperature devices from damages. PCV0 materials can protect your home safely.
  • SET SCHEDULE & TIMER – Schedule the Smart Power Strip to automatically power electronics on and off as needed, like setting lights to come on at dusk or turn off at sunrise. You can create a group for all of your smart devices and control them all with just one command. With the countdown timer feature, simply set a timer for the Smart Power strip to turn off its appliance automatically.
