Sorry if this has been covered, but I just wanted to give a shoutout — I recently installed a cheap Kasa smart switch ($20, Amazon) to replace the light switch I use to turn my pool pump on and off. It lets me turn my pump on and off from anywhere, as long as I have my phone, and have saved me a ton of inconvenience running across my yard to toggle power. Other cool features are that from the app I can set up a schedule, or put the switch on a timer. Another really neat bonus is that I can log the number of hours the switch is on, so I can track power expenditure. Really cool, and worth the investment.
