- TP-Link Smart Wifi Light Switch for $25.50
TP-Link Wifi Light Switch for $25.45 each.
Rarely found for under $28, and usually sells for about $35.
Installation may require a skilled electrician, since it replaces a conventional light switch in a home.
Requires a Neutral Wire, which most modern homes have (some old homes do not).
Does not support 3-way light setups, so this will not work on stairway or hallway lights that are wired to more than 1 light switch.
Once installed in your home, you can control the switches with the free Kasa app on your phone, or with a voice-controlled speaker like a Google Home or Amazon Echo.
