Amazon is currently offering a 4-pack of TECKIN WiFi-enabled smart plugs for just $28.89 ahead of Father’s Day. The offer means that each unit costs approximately $7.25 and will allow multiple appliances in a property to have certain elements of ‘intelligence’ applied with immediate effect.

The first thing that you are going to notice about the TECKIN smart plugs is that they come with a very simple but slightly unique design in comparison to other products of the market of a similar ilk. You are essentially going to be getting a compact and lightweight product with a cylindrical design which differs from the large, bulky products that a lot of manufacturers have in the market. Thankfully, the design may differ but the product still hits all of the sweet spots that you would expect from a smart plug.

The first sweet spot is that the plugs are all WiFi-enabled, and therefore don’t require any additional hardware in order to function. This means that there is no bridge or hub needed to interface with the router in the home. It’s simply a case of connecting the plugs to the existing 2.4GHz WiFi network and you are up and running with that level of connectivity. Connecting the mobile app is also going to ensure that you get access to the first level of control in terms being able to remotely access the plugs over a WiFi connection or even cellular data if you are based in some obscure and remote part of the world.

Next, the plugs also adhere to some of the most popular voice platforms to facilitate voice control through existing hardware. Compatibility is included for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT, meaning it is not only possible to give commands audibly to control the plugs but also set up certain actions to take place via the IFTTT service. Finally, the plugs also expose additional functionality, such as scheduling and being able to create and add timers to allow the owner to have maximum control over the product and its functionality.

This is a great deal for a package which is going to bring four of these little beauties into your life.
