TP-Link Deco M5 TP-Link

Networking equipment and smart home tech from TP-Link are deeply discounted today on Amazon. Whether you want to improve Wi-Fi coverage in your home, connect more devices via Ethernet with a multiport switch, or outfit your home with some Kasa smart plugs and light bulbs, you’ll probably find something of interest.

Perhaps the biggest discount is on TP-Link’s two-pack of Deco mesh Wi-Fi routers. It’s $99.99 for both bundled together, which is the lowest price yet, according to pricing data from CamelCamelCamel. These usually run for around $149.99, and the previous best price was $110 in early December 2018. Mesh Wi-Fi is the way to go if you’re tired of encountering spotty internet speeds in certain parts of your living space. Mesh routers work together to blanket your home in Wi-Fi, limiting your chances of encountering a dead zone for coverage.

If your home is bigger than an apartment or if you have two floors, getting a three-pack isn’t a bad idea. It’s also cheaper today and comes with a free third-gen Amazon Echo Dot. You can find it for $169.99 on Amazon.

A two-pack of TP-Link’s miniature smart Wi-Fi plugs is $27.99. This is an easy, affordable way to give you more control of non-smart devices. The plugs are compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, so turning stuff on and off with your voice is easy when you’re home. The TP-Link Kasa app lets you set schedules for each plug, and you can use it to switch them on or off remotely, which is handy if you were in a rush to leave and you forgot to turn off a lamp.
