That’s all there is to it. The steps above might seem daunting, but you’ll pick it up easily and will be able to control your smart plug and the devices you plug into it.
I really like how simple the Amazon smart plug is, and that it doesn’t require me to fiddle with a smart hub .(Though the Amazon Echo Plus has one built-in that doesn’t require much setup either.) The benefit to a smart hub, however, is that you can add other things like Philips Hue lights and other appliances that require more than just an outlet to work.
But, if you want to use your voice or phone to easily on a fan, holiday lights, the coffee maker or any other simple gadget with an on/off switch, then the Amazon smart plug is a really simple way to do that, no matter where you are.
