Setting up the Amazon Smart Plug is quite an easy task. All that you need to do is to plug the device into an electrical socket and setup using the Alexa app (available on both iOS and Android). Once the Amazon Smart Plug is connected, you can simply ask Alexa on any Echo, Alexa built-in device, Fire TV or the Alexa app to turn on/off the power.

What is important to note here is that Amazon Smart Plug is not the same as Echo Flex Plug-in smart speaker that was launched by Amazon last year. The Echo Flex Plug-in serves as a smart speaker that can be directly plugged into a standard electrical outlet, thus cutting out the need for numerous wires and chargers. Unlike the Amazon Smart Plug, the Echo Flex Plug-in can also be used as an adapter (7.5W) as this smart device hosts a built-in USB-A port.
