Wemo Mini Smart Plug
The Wemo Mini Smart Plug is both compact and powerful in its design. It fits over just one outlet and provides some of the best compatibility with smart home products of any smart plug on the market including Nest, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa.
Why we like the Wemo Mini Smart Plug
Belkin’s Wemo brand is one of the more popular smart home brands ranging from plugs to crop pots with smart capabilities. The Wemo Mini Smart Plug combines very good compatibility with a form factor that is very attractive and that doesn’t take up multiple outlets like many of the other smart plugs on the market. In fact, you can stack 2 on the same outlet they are so small!
Voice Assistant Compatibility
This Wemo smart plug has full compatibility with Google Assistant (Google Home) as well as Amazon Alexa. If you are an Apple Homekit fan you can pick up a Wemo Homekit Bridge which will open up Homekit ability to all of their devices. There are also several open source initatives that can theoretically get you Homekit support on the Wemo Mini Smart Plug.
This plug will work seemlessly with IFTTT and Stringify if you want to build some more intricate recipes and automations. It will also work with Samsung SmartThings (with a little bit of fiddling) and has the full “Works with Nest” certification so it can tap into the Nest ecosystem’s Home/Away settings for even more automation.
The biggest “feature” here is that the Wemo Mini Smart Plug is compact and does its job well. Since we’ve had it installed it has been just about as reliable as our TP-Link plug (which is very). You can set schedules and also put it into “randomized” mode which will simulate someone being home and turning on and off the lights. But our biggest feature is that it doesn’t take up two full outlets. It is small enough to just cover one outlet and can even fit two units on top of one another.
The Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Plug is one of our favorite smart plugs on the market because it is widely supported, works well and is very compact. You won’t do much better than this plug right now.
