New Delhi: Amazon on Wednesday launched its smart plug in India. The Alexa-enabled smart plug allows you to control select appliances through voice commands.

Priced at Rs 1,999, the Amazon Smart Plug is available via the e-commerce platform starting today.

You can also purchase the device offline at Amazon kiosks in Mumbai and Bangalore as well as in select Croma and Reliance Digital outlets. The company is also bundling the Smart Plug for Rs 999 with the Echo Dot speaker.

“With the Amazon Smart Plug, customers can control their connected appliances even when they’re not next to their appliances by using the Alexa app. For example, turn on the aquarium filter while not at home, or turn off the TV remotely while being in back to back meetings to regulate kids’ TV time,” said the company in a release.

Amazon’s Smart Plug works with a variety of appliances such as lamps, table fans, electric kettle, room coolers, televisions, mobile chargers, air-purifiers, soundbars etc. The company said that it works with home appliances that have a physical power on/off switch. This product does not support heavy appliances such as AC, geysers, water pumps, or heaters.

To set up the Smart Plug, just plug the device into an electrical socket. You can then pair the device to your Alexa account through the official mobile app.

Once paired, you can ask your smart speaker in the house to control the appliances. You can give commands such as “Alexa, turn off the fan” or “Alexa, switch on the mosquito repellent.”
