Imagine being able to brew your morning coffee while you’re still in bed. You don’t have to haul your bean machine into your bedroom or buy a new coffee maker because the Belkin smart plug allows you to make any device a smart one.

Just load your coffee maker up the night before, control it from your iPhone the next morning, and walk over to a freshly brewed cup of joe in the kitchen right when you need it. Make your home a smart house with a 3-pack for $69.99 (reg. $119.97).

Effortless mornings and evenings

You can also use the Apple HomeKit app to set schedules or timers. If you want to make your famous slow cooker chicken while you’re at work, simply set a timer, and the plug will cut the power when it’s done.

On your drive home, ask Siri to turn on your lamps so the house is well-lit for your chicken dinner. That’s if you didn’t already have a schedule set to have them automatically turn on when the sun sets.

Or, get the full smart home experience by enabling geofencing within the Apple HomeKit app. This will allow your lights to automatically turn on when you’re within range of your home and shut off when you leave. 

Here are some more ideas of what you might automate with your new smart plugs:

  • Fans
  • Heaters
  • Air conditioners
  • Holiday lights
  • Bug zappers
  • Electric grills

Really, anything that can automatically start once it’s plugged in will work with these plugs—think outside the box for how you can start automating your life and home.

Grab a 3-pack of the Belkin smart plugs for $69.99 (reg. $119.97) and save 41%, though they are also available in singles or 2-packs.
