How to Schedule an Amazon Smart Plug to Turn On and Off

Elizabeth Frank27 Jan 2022

If you're like most people, you probably have an infrastructure of devices that need to be turned on and off. You might have a few lights in your room, a TV, a computer, and so on. But what about the devices in your home that don't usually get turned on? Smart Plugs are devices that automatically turn on or off your devices. And they're becoming more and more popular every day. Why? Because they save you time and hassle. Smart plugs can be set up remotely, so you don't have to go to your device to turn it on or off. Plus, they're perfect for places where there's no electricity—like boats, cars, and power outages.

What is an Amazon Smart Plug?

An Amazon Smart Plug is a device that allows you to control the power of any device that is connected to it via a plug. You can control your TV, lights, or even your coffee maker by connecting them to an Amazon Smart Plug.

How Does It Work?

The Amazon Smart Plug works by connecting the two devices with each other-the smart plug and the smart home device. This connection allows you to turn on or off the devices with your voice by using Alexa! You can also use a mobile app or connect it directly to your WiFi network using an Ethernet cable. And of course, you can manually turn the plug on or off if you're in the same room as it. The possibilities are endless! Once you install the Smart Plug, you can access its settings from the Amazon app or Alexa. You can then choose from one of two modes: "on" or "off." In "On" mode, the device will turn on and off at your command. In "Off" mode, the device will only turn off when you shut off its power source (like a switch). Once you've selected either "On" or "Off," your device will be turned on and off automatically whenever you tell it to do so!

How to Schedule an Amazon Smart Plug to Turn On and Off

Setting up a schedule for your plug is simple. Here's how to do it:

  1. Open the Alexa app on your mobile device.
  2. Tap on the menu button in the upper left corner of the screen.
  3. Tap Smart Home, then select Amazon Smart Plug from the list. This will take you to all of your smart plugs if you have more than one!
  4. Tap on Schedules from the top menu bar at the bottom of your screen.
  5. Select Schedule at the bottom of your screen to create a new schedule for this plug or select an existing schedule that has already been created for this plug (if applicable).
  6. Select the days and times you want the plug to turn on or off. You can also select an "away" or "home" mode for the plug. This is useful if you want to control certain devices in your house while you are away, but still have other devices on while you're home.
  7. Select "Done" at the bottom of your screen when done selecting your schedule!
  8. If you do not see a schedule for this plug, it means that there is already a schedule associated with this plug and Alexa will ask if that's what you want to use as well! Simply say yes or no and your smart plug will be scheduled!
  9. Your plug will now turn on or off according to your schedule!

Note: If you have more than one smart plug, you can create as many schedules as you need! You can also create multiple schedules for the same plug. And to delete a schedule for this plug, simply say: "Alexa, delete the schedule for [name of smart plug]" and it will be removed!

The Benefits of Having an Amazon Smart Plug Scheduled

Here are some of the advantages of scheduling your Amazon Smart Plug now that you know how to do so! You can set up a "Home" mode for the plug, which will allow it to turn on and off only when you are at home. You can also set up an "away" mode for the plug, which will allow it to turn on and off automatically while you're away. This is a great feature if you want to make sure certain lights in your home are turned off while you're away but still want to keep other lights turned on. You can program a plug so that it turns on and off at different times throughout the day on a daily basis. This is fantastic if you want to make sure that specific lights are turned off before you go to sleep each night! The ability to program multiple plugs at the same time means that they can all be set to turn on and off at different times of the day. If you have multiple lamps in your living room, bedroom, and kitchen that all need to be turned on and off at different times, this is the solution for you. The ability to set a schedule for each plug means that they will all be turned on or off at the same time. Because you can create schedules that run multiple times per day, you can program your smart plug to turn on and off at different times throughout the day if necessary. Having your Amazon Smart Plug scheduled has numerous advantages, as you can see in the table below. If you do not already have one of these plugs in your home, it is highly recommended that you purchase one right away! You'll be glad you took the time to read this.

Final Thoughts

There are a lot of reasons to get an Amazon smart plug. You can use it to save money, keep track of your lights, and even turn off lights when you're not home! If you want to save money and enjoy the convenience of having smart plugs in your home, then it is highly recommended that you get one today!
