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.

This here is fairly basic, yet cool LED strip. It comes with adapter and remote controller (battery included) and is split into 2 x 5 meters, however you can use the included “adapter” to connect them together and have 10m strip, the choice is yours!
The LED strip is also flexible and has pre-applied adhesive tape at the back. Color choice is usual, Red, Green, Blue and mix of some other colors, such as orange, pink, purple, sea blue, sky blue ..etc. Brightness is adjustable and there are 4 different modes to choose from too, however I personally don’t like the cool color temp, the white is blueish white, but that’s matter of preference.
