What is a Smart Electrical Wall Outlet?
Smart Wall Outlets
Remote Control of Electrical Devices!
A smart electrical wall outlet is a device that allows you to remotely control the power supply to an electrical device that is plugged into it. Unlike traditional wall outlets, these smart outlets are equipped with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to control them using your smartphone or voice assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
With a smart electrical wall outlet, you can turn on/off your electrical devices such as lamps, fans, and coffee makers using your mobile device or voice command, even when you are not at home. Additionally, some smart outlets also allow you to monitor energy consumption and set up schedules to automate routines based on your needs.
There are several types of smart electrical wall outlets;
1. Z-Wave Smart Outlets: These work on the Z-Wave wireless standard, allowing you to control lights or appliances using a smartphone app, voice control, or a compatible smart home hub.
2. Wi-Fi Enabled Smart Outlets: These work with your home Wi-Fi network and can be monitored and controlled using a smartphone app or voice control.
3. Bluetooth Smart Outlets: These use Bluetooth technology to connect to your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to control lights or appliances within range.
4. Zigbee Smart Outlets: These use the Zigbee wireless standard and allow you to control lights or appliances remotely using a smartphone app or a compatible smart home hub.
