The Echo Dot really needs no introduction, but the third-generation model launched back in late September with an all-new design. It shucked its completely hard plastic exterior for a more welcoming fabric finish around its “waist”. According to Amazon, the new Echo Dot is up to 70 percent louder than its predecessor.
The MSRP for the Echo Dot is $49.99, but Best Buy currently has it on sale for $29.99. However, adding two drops the price down to $25 each.
As for the TP-Link HS105, this is a Wi-Fi plug that will allow you to control any attached device using your voice (through Alexa), or with the Kasa companion app on your smartphone or tablet. This particular model uses a more compact design, so plugging it in won’t block the other three-prong receptacle on your wall plate (which also means you can plug in two of these, one on top of the other). The plugs support 15 amps, don’t require a hub, and are even compatible with the Google Assistant.
The HS105 smart plugs typically sell for $29.99, but adding two to your cart along with the two Echo Dots drops the price to $10 each. So, in total, you’re looking at $70 for the entire set of smart devices.
