The Wyze Plug works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. 

Wyze

Wyze is known for its affordable smart camera. The company also offers Wyze Sense smart sensors, and just last week we awarded the $8 Wyze Bulb our Editors' Choice award. Today, the company announced the Wyze Plug, a smart plug that comes in a two-pack for just $15 and works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa

You can use both assistants to turn the Wyze Plug on or off, or control it from anywhere with the Wyze app. Vacation mode randomly powers your plug on and off to create the illusion of someone being at home, when connected to devices such as lamps, TVs or radios. The Wyze Plug can also set schedules to power devices on or off. 

If you already own Wyze Sense devices or a Wyze Cam, you can set those to trigger the Wyze Plug to turn on or off when doors open or close or when motion is detected. 

The Wyze Plug's maximum load is 15 amps and it is ETL-listed for safety. The Wyze Plug is available in a two-pack for just $15, by far the cheapest price we've seen for a smart plug since the SmartThings Wi-Fi Smart Plug was released at $18. 

Will Wyze's new plug be worthy of our best smart plugs list? We'll test it out as soon as possible and report back.
