Hi Techie ABers ... We've just treated ourselves to an Echo Dot, which we love using. For an additional £5 we also purchased a "smart plug", I sort of know what it's for, but don't know exactly how to use it. Can someone explain in simple terms, please. Many thanks, cheers, Chox.

for example, i have an electric recliner. I have linked the plug to the alexa so that when im not using it, i can turn the electricity off to that plug without having to bend down and fiddle with it (the transformer is loud). I also have a smart plug on the alexa in 9yo bedroom which i have set up to go off at a certain time and come back on at a certai time so she cant use the alexa in the night. Also good for xmas tree lights
