- TP-Link Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug
If your friend is always on the go, you can help him control the appliances and electronics at home by gifting them the Kasa Smart Wi-Fi Plug This can be controlled through your current Wi-Fi network and your smartphone.

However, because this is connected to the electronics of the home, an appliance has the potential to shortcircuit at any point, checking to see if something like this can be covered under a home warranty is what the friend can do, especially if it controls the majority of the electrics.
