Smart plug, smart price

The Geeni Energi is entering the smart home market with a surprisingly low $25 price for the features packed into it.

App features

You can monitor your energy usage, as well as control the device remotely. Add in Alexa voice control and scheduling, and you have a pretty solid smart plug.

Not a looker

The design of the Energi looks a little dated, especially when compared to other contemporary smart plugs.

A great deal

But altogether, for $25, the Geeni Energi beats out a lot of the competition on affordability alone.
