Here’s another excellent smart socket. This one is for EU. Naturally it has a physical button on the device to turn the connected device on / off, but it can also be controlled via Smart Life app. Smart Life app itself is poorly made, but it does the job. Once you have properly connected your plug to your app and you have internet connection, then you can control that socket from anywhere in the world. You can also set timers and schedules if you like to automate things. It also supports Alexa and other known AI programs.
It’s very easy to setup and use. For more info and details, check out my awesome video review below:
Wireless light switches are awesome, so no wonder more and more companies are making them now. Usually they have 2 switches in 1, so you can connect 2 lights (or other devices) to the switch and control them via “smart life” app once they’re connected up.
Switch itself is super easy to connect if you have common sense and basic knowledge of how electricity works, but if you’re unsure how to install it, then you can find more details on the video review below.
You can also turn the switch on / off manually as it has to “buttons” on it, however if you want to connect it up via app, you must have the switch within wireless coverage, so make sure your router’s wireless is strong enough to reach the switch (you can test this with your phone or other mobile device to make sure signal is strong near where you want to install the switch). Once switch has been setup via app, you can then control it from anywhere in the world via app. Smart Life app also allows you to set timers or schedule and it says it supports Alexa, Google Home Assistant and IFTTT too.
Even tho this is EU switch, it will work perfectly fine in UK too as you only need to connect mains power cables to it, while i’m not so sure about USA, because USA uses 120v and not 220v. And in case you’re in doubt, this switch is not just for lights, as it’s a mains power switch, it can switch anything that works on 220 volts. If you keep forgetting your cooker on all the time, you can set it on a timer that it turns itself off after like 1h in case you forget cooker on. I’m not sure about wattage tho, it doesn’t say how much it supports, but I think it’s about 5000w or so, it’s hard to find a device that takes over 2000w anyways, maybe some heaters, but they usually have their own timers and switches and they also have a plug, so for heater you should be looking for smart socket and not a wall switch.
Check out the video review for all the details and step-by-step setup and how to install tutorials.
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)
