3 Ways I Make My Home Smart with TP-Link
The concept of having a smart home can seem foreign and scary to some, but I’m here to tell you that the world is evolving, and has it made so simple for all to use. I love having a smart home that I can cater to my specific needs, and make my life even simpler, something I appreciate so much being the mom of two littles!
TP-Link’s new line of Smart Home products, such as the bulb, the plug, and the light switch are completely seamless with Wi-Fi integration. Control and integrate everything via a simple, and user friendly app, Kasa. What’s even more beneficial is you can secure your home and lower your energy footprint by using TP-Link’s line of Smart Home products.You can also schedule your light and/or power usage to suit your unique routine and needs, and even activate voice control via the Amazon Echo/Dot and have Alexa help you with all your needs!
One of the best features is the affordability. All the products range between $29.99 – $49.99, and if you use the coupon you could save 20% through December 31, 2016 with coupon code “TPLinkSmart”. What a great christmas gift guys!!
I know you’re probably wondering how these could be implemented through your home, so here are the ways I chose to make my home smart using TP-Link.
1. Smart Wi-Fi Plug with my Christmas Tree
I sometimes worry about leaving the tree on when I leave the house for a really long time, so I love having the ease of being able to use the Kasa app to turn it off if I forget to do in the hurry of getting out of the house with the kids! Plus, it allows me to monitor how much energy my tree is using this holiday season! We’ve also integrated with our Amazon Dot, so Aria loves to tell Alexa to turn our tree!! These kids are going to grow up basically talking to their houses! Watching their faces light up with the Christmas tree on their command has to be one of the coolest things.
All you have to do it just stick the plug into the outlet you’d like to use! I don’t think it can get any easier than that! No hub required since it all works seamlessly with Wi-Fi!
2. Keeping the kiddos and I safe with the Smart Wi-fi Light Switch
One of the things I fear the most is coming home to a dark house with Aria and Rishi. Especially with it getting dark so fast outside nowadays with daylight savings, I love being able to walk into a house that’s already lit up. Makes me feel safe, which is such a giant priority for me since having a family.
You might worry about the installation here, but I think it took a whole of 10 minutes start to finish!
And now when I come home, I pull into my driveway, and am able to just open up the app and have all my kitchen lights turn on before I come into the house!! You can see it all in my video at the bottom of this post!
3. Creating a fun mood and ambience with the Smart Wi-Fi LED Bulb
This literally has to be the easiest and one of the coolest things to change in your house! Make any lamp or light fixture become smart but switching out the bulb!! I chose to do a lamp that is in my living room since that is where the majority of our dance parties happen! HA. And now I can control the lamp with my app, or Alexa! Best of all, I can change the color of the bulb to fit the mood of our party!
Watch this video below to actually see how easily all of the smart products can be installed and used within minutes!
Are you pretty convinced that having a smart home is amazing technology that you can tailor to fit any need you may have?! Don’t forget that you can save through the end of the year to save 20% with coupon code “TPLinkSmart”!

My kids would love changing the color of the bulb! So cool.
These products look awesome! I love the idea of using the smart plug with the Christmas tree. It would make it fun to be able to turn on the lights before you go into the room Christmas morning and be able to go to bed with the lights on but then turn them off before you go to sleep!
I need this! So awesome!
These are too cool!
PS. Love the littles next to the tree. So cute!

I am such a worrier about forgetting to turn things off when I leave or forgetting to leave a light on for when we get home. I love that these products could take so much worry out of my day!
Very cool! I love all the ways technology is making things easier.
Those are so cool. And with it getting dark so early now its a good idea. And with the christmas lights!!! so perfect because I never remember till I am already in bed. But wait now you can do it from your phone. Genius
Cool! I’m amazed that only the light switch involves installation, and everything else is just plug it in and go!
This is seriously the coolest thing I’ve seen in awhile! What a genius invention!!! I’m totally looking into buying these items!
These products look so cool
I love how how energy efficient this is and my boys would love the color variety 🙂
These products sound awesome!
