Our home is getting smarter and at the very least more convenient. While we now can control the thermostat, lights and even see who is knocking at the front door with our smartphones, now there's the Kasa Smart Wi-Fi power strip. Not only does it let you remotely control your lights, fixtures, and appliances through a smartphone app or voice assistant, it also lets you turn the power strip’s six individual sockets on and off at will. This new product from TP-Link pairs with Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and the Google Assistant, allowing hands-free control over your household appliances plugged into the power strip. Through the app, you can schedule when your devices power on or off and even get energy consumption rates displayed for each item powered by the strip. The Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Power Strip sells for $80 online.
