For its next trick, Wyze brings its unique blend of no-fuss capabilities and rock-bottom pricing to the smart plug space. At $15 for a set of two, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better value in a Wi-Fi smart plug.
From a hardware perspective, there’s not much to see here, either compared to other smart plugs or to Wyze’s existing product lineup. The rectangular box offers a single three-prong outlet. A button on the side can be used for manual control. Maximum load is 15 amps, or 1800 watts, which is plenty to control small motors as well as lights. Only 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks are supported. A tiny status LED is visible on the front of the device. This can be disabled in settings, if desired.
