Decent in-line Zigbee/Smart switch?

I have a lamp I want to add a smart switch to for Alexa control, routines etc. I normally use Kasa smart plug, but they are too big to use behind the shelves the lamp is on. I plan to cut the cable anyway, so might as well use a Zigbee (or similar) in-line switch.

Correct me if I’m wrong, I won’t need a Zigbee hub because the Amazon Echo Plus I have had one built in, but which is the best switch (preferably on Amazon)?

I don't use an Echo Plus but I do use one of these with my Hue Bridge to switch my outside floodlight.

This is the link I bought mine from but it looks the same while being a tenner more expensive

I've had mine since Feb 2019, it's used multiple times a day when the dogs go out at night and has been pretty reliable. I've only.needed to flip the power to a couple of times in over a year and a half.
