Eve’s energy-monitoring smart plug pairs with HomeKit and Siri over Thread at $32 (Reg. $40)

4 days ago 13

Amazon currently offers the Eve Energy HomeKit Smart Plug with Thread for $31.95 shipped when clipping the on-page coupon. Marking only the second notable price cut to date since being refreshed last year, today’s offer amounts to 20% in savings from the usual $40 going rate. This is matching the all-time low set just once before, as well. Updated with Thread support to go alongside all of the original Bluetooth HomeKit support, Eve’s smart plug packs a few extra tricks to upgrade your Siri setup. On top of the new Thread radio, there’s also energy monitoring capabilities for keeping tabs on power vampires or just monitoring electric usage on various appliances. We took a hands-on look at what to expect from the experience in our HomeKit Weekly series, as well.

Those who can live without the built-in energy monitoring features will want to check out the Wemo Smart Plug V4 instead. This more affordable offering was also just recently refreshed with Thread support, delivering a compact design that lets you control lamps, fans, and more with Siri. Right now, it’ll only set you back $25 at Amazon, providing one of the best smart plugs on the market for less than the more capable option above.

If you’d rather skip using a smart plug to control a lamp and just go right to swapping out the bulb, Amazon is currently running an extra 15% off Philips Hue sale. Most notably marking down Filament bulbs to the best prices in months, if not of the entire year, these start at $34 and then are joined by an assortment of other ways to give Siri, Alexa, and Assistant some new gear to control from $19.

Eve Energy Smart Plug features: 

Already made yourself comfortable? Hands tied? Turn your devices on and off with a simple tap or by asking Siri. You can also control Eve Energy directly via the built-in switch, which you can protect against curious fingers by activating the child lock.
