The problem with the gadgets that you can connect to your WiFi (called the “Internet of Things”) like cameras, etc. is that most are made in China, sold cheap with no future support (like security updates.) TP-Link is an established networking company and they have a 2-pack of smart plugs that you plug into an outlet, and you can then control whatever is connected to it. It’s GREAT for turning on lamps, and if you’re going to be out of town over the holidays you can schedule the lights to look like you’re at home.
You set them up from your smart phone, and can control them from your phone, Amazon Echo and Google Assistant. It’s on sale for $27.99. There are cheaper devices on Amazon, but they are no-name and I doubt they will get security updates when needed. These little guys can be updated from your phone, that’s great!!!
