I saw this Smart Remote Control WiFi Plug Socket Support Alexa Control $9.99 + Free S/H and thought may be you are interested to get one. TBH, I don't know if it is a good deal or not.

I would love to have something like this to control a light switch and even the brightness from my laptop but am leery of these type devices for most of the reasons stated here https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2016/03/the-absolute-horror-of-wifi-light-switches/ . Know of anything that is controllable via a linux cmdline and doesn't phone home to china or elsewhere?
