I bought a lamp and plugged it into the wall; however, the outlet is slightly out of reach. with this smart plug, I could just ask Alexa turn on light and it turns on. Fantastic! I also have a string of butterfly lights on a high shelf in our granddaughter bedroom. She has asked to turn on the butterflys; however, I cannot it is way too high to reach without a ladder. I put the smart plug in the outlet with the butterflies, and now we can turn it on as easy as asking Alexa to turn on the butterflies. I will be buying more smart plugs in the near future.
