Once you have Alexa, it's time to deck out your outlets with these smart plugs. Use your voice to control lights, lamps and any other electronics that are a pain to turn on and off manually. These are especially great around the holidays for light timers when you're not home.

Waiting for a package to arrive just became a little more gadget-friendly. You can check your doorbell and monitor your home with 720 HD video, motion-activated alerts and two-way talk. Send alerts to your phone, tablet and PC so you can see, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere.

Once I got a camera at home to keep an eye on my pet, I knew there was no going back. This compact plug-in indoor camera lets you see, hear and speak to people and pets from your phone, tablet or select Echo devices. Check out what's going on while you're out (or just in the other room) by connecting one or multiple Indoor Cams to all your Ring devices in the Ring app. It's great for peace of mind!

When I was a kid, I remember having a tiny tv in our kitchen that I thought was revolutionary. This is like that times a thousand. You can watch tons of shows and movies, listen to music, make video calls to family and friends and anything else that you usually do with Alexa. Having one in the kitchen is especially useful when you're watching cooking videos, making shopping lists or setting timers.
