Elf Smart Plug makes your home intelligent for cheap
Looking to turn your living space into a smart home? We know it can be a huge pain trying to figure out how to do it. Do you get smart bulbs? Which platform do you go for? Phillips or LIFX? Wemo? Then you look at some of those prices and realize maybe you are just fine getting out of bed to flip that switch!

Smart homes should be easy and flexible, as well as accessible. This is why today we wanted to share the Elf Smart Plug with you. It’s a simple on/off switch that connects to your WiFi network, allowing for remote control from any smartphone. Use it with a lamp and you will be able to turn on the lights from afar. Or maybe hook it to your stove for those days when you forget whether you turned the fire off or not. Simple.
There will be no fancy color changes, dimming and the like, but the Elf Smart Plug does have some cool tricks to show. Smart charging protection is one of them. This means the device can recognize when a phone is fully charged and stops sending it juice. Elf also joins the digital assistant hype by fully supporting the Amazon Echo.
The best part is that the unit costs only $25 per piece. These are sold in 3 different packages: 1 for $25, 2 for $50 and 4 for $100. IF that wasn’t cool enough, this product is ready to ship! You won’t be waiting for goals and shipping is done in 3-5 days.
Interested? Hit Indiegogo for all the details. We say it is a nice investment. The most similar mainstream products we can find are the Belkin Wemo smart plugs, which start at about $35.
