Looking for a simple way to upgrade your traditional electrical items to smart devices? Using smart plugs or sockets throughout your home is a quick and hassle-free way to modernise your setup without the expense of buying all-new equipment.
Smart sockets look almost identical to standard ones, but use your home internet network to give you complete control from your mobile phone. No more getting up to switch off plugs manually – when you’ve got a smart power socket, it’s as easy as a tap, swipe or voice command.
Make sure you choose a smart socket that fits your existing boxes, and installation will be a breeze. Simply download the compatible app to your smartphone or tablet, and you’ll be able to switch them on and off, set timers and much more.
Don’t want to upgrade to a smart wall socket? Using a smart plug is an even more simple way – they’ll plug into any standard socket, and can control almost any electrical device. Smart plugs allow you to switch the connected appliance on or off from your mobile, wherever you are. This is particularly useful for cutting down energy usage of power-hungry equipment such as TVs, computers or gaming consoles.
They’re great for managing your lighting too but, for even more versatility, check out these smart light switches
