1. Amazon Smart Thermostat

Ever heard of a Smart Thermostat before? It’s a Wi-Fi-enabled system that can automatically control the temperature of your home via an app on either your phone or another device. Through the app, you can do several things, including scheduling when your AC or heat will turn on or off, and controlling the current temperature from the grocery store, at a friend’s house, or from work. With these thermostats, you can avoid using excessive heating or cooling systems while no one is home or when you are away for long periods of time, and reduce your energy consumption significantly, which in turn lowers your utility bill and saves you money!

Of course, a device with those excellent features is bound to be expensive, but what is great about the Amazon Smart Thermostat is that it’s only $47.99 (for a limited time!). It also includes special qualities such as a smooth and polished design, touchscreen interface, and an Energy Star certification, meaning you can save up to $50 on your utility bills each year.

All you need is a device that has access to the Alexa speaker and voice commands. You really do not want to miss out... start reducing your energy consumption with the Amazon Smart Thermostat!  

2. Wyze bulb

A second way you can save energy and reduce your utility usage is through smart bulbs like the Wyze Bulb. Like the smart thermostat, a smart bulb, when connected to the internet, has the ability to control, customize and schedule the lighting in any room of the house. All you need is a bulb and the corresponding app to control your electricity from anywhere.

One Wyze Bulb is $9.99, and a pack of four bulbs is just under $32.

They also include several fantastic features including great brightness, full spectrums of white-light color temperature settings, and lastly, they are compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

3. EUFY Smart Plug Mini

Went to the grocery store but forgot to unplug your laptop charger before you left?

Not a problem! With the EUFY Smart Plug Mini, and for just $39.99, you can turn off any device that is connected to the plug via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa from anywhere.

Some special features include daily and monthly reports on your energy consumption per device and the ability to schedule in advance when to turn off or “unplug” the device while you aren’t home. All you need is a wireless connection for everything to work properly!
