Gosund makes smart sockets for different regions, EU, UK and this time we have USA socket here. Unfortunetely USA socket does not have the built-in electric meter, but everything else is as good as on other ones. It’s very small and can be controlled via “smart life” (go smart) mobile app, but also has physical button on the socket in case you want to turn it off physically, otherwise once it’s setup with your app, you can control it from anywhere in the world (as long as socket is still connected to your home Wi-Fi). It’s rated for 1200w and should automatically turn off in case of overload, while UK one is rated for 2300w and EU one is 3500w!
It also supports Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT, so you can setup voice commands and such. For more details and step-by-step guide on how to set it up, check out the video review below:
These smart plugs / sockets are really awesome, this specific version comes with built-in electrical meter that measures voltage and amperage (shows wattage based on volts and amps), so it truly is “smart socket”. As per usual, it can be controlled via mobile app called “Smart Life”. You can set timers and schedules and group with other devices. Smart Life app also supports alexa, google assistant and IFTTT. Smart Life app itself has built-in voice commands, but it’s quite basic and you have to “hold to speak”, but works great and recognizes text just fine.
This is UK specific plug, rated for 2300 watts max and has overload protection, it turn the plug off automatically and sends you alert in case there is overload.

It’s quite simple device, yet very useful! This smart wireless socket can come in handy in many situations, such as turning on coffee machine, turning your lights off ..etc and it can all be done wirelessly, Smart Life app allows you to control this socket from anywhere in the world! As long as the socket is connected to your local wifi (which you setup in the app), then your socket is always online and can be controlled under your Smart Life app account.
On video I forgot to show the part in the app that shows electrical meter. This plug is capable of showing voltage and amperage that goes through the socket and can calculate exact wattage used. Also has monthly reports that shows how much power has gone through this plug during each month, it’s really neat feature! and it’s rated for 3500 watts max, so it’s more than enough to connect your home appliances to this (cooker, coffee machine, toaster, heater ..etc)
