Best Uses For Smart Plugs
With today’s latest smart plugs, you can easily automate just about anything in your house. It’s a near instant way to make your common electrical devices smarter. Smart plugs and smart switches make it possible to switch electrical devices on and off with your smartphone, or by using your voice and an AI-equipped smart assistant. You can also monitor energy usage and put those devices on a schedule, making your life more convenient while saving you money on your energy bills.
With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the best uses for smart plugs:
Improve Energy Efficiency- smart plugs help you to identify energy-hungry appliances and you can make better decisions to save energy. With a smart plug, you can track the amount of electricity that your appliances are consuming. If you are concerned with the overall inefficiency in your home, it’s easier to find the culprits. You can decide to reduce the use of power-hungry appliances or upgrade them with more efficient models.
Eliminate Standby Energy Use- standby energy use for each appliance can be negligible, but the total standby energy consumption may make up 10 percent of your monthly energy bills. As you add more appliances, standby energy costs may scale up steadily. Computers, Wi-Fi routers, printers, TVs, phone chargers, and microwaves steadily consume phantom energy. With smart plugs, you may consciously unplug appliances to stop them from consuming energy needlessly.
Keep Your Home Safe- with smart plugs, you can trick burglars into thinking that there’s someone in your home. Lighting can be put on schedule to get them turned on and off. It is possible to vary the schedule so as not to make them look routine. This should deter any burglar from breaking into your home. The alarm system can be integrated with the lighting as well so if someone decides to enter your home, all lights can be switched on automatically.
Limit Screen Time- if your children love playing with gaming consoles or their smart devices, smart plugs can limit their screen time. It is easier for parents to set up a healthy after-school routine. You may allow children to play for only one or two hours each day. Once children maintain a proper daily habit, you no longer need smart plugs to keep their daily activities organised.
