Wish your lights would turn themselves on when it’s dark? Or that you could check you haven’t left something on after leaving the house? Well, with smart home technology and the introduction of ‘smart plugs’, this is now possible!
What is a smart plug?
A Smart Plug is a device that fits into a standard wall socket and lets you control the appliance that’s plugged into it. It does this by offering remote control via a smartphone app. You can control it in real-time to turn appliances on or off or schedule it to activate devices at specific times.
Moreover, you can connect them to your Wiser Smart Heating System to make your home more energy-efficient. Control up to 10 appliances within your home, as well as your heating and hot water with our family of smart home devices.
Essentially, smart plugs can save time and money by Transforming Every Room in Your House. If you like the sound of that, here are five ways a smart plug may help you:
Peace of mind.
If you’re out all day and worried about security, then smart plugs can come to the rescue. Time lamps or the TV to come on to help your home appear occupied, deterring would-be burglars and reducing worry. With the Wiser Heat App, you can schedule up to eight events per day across your smart plug devices. So you can turn lights off and on at any time, boosting your smart home security.
Making bedtime simpler.
Once the kids are asleep, you don’t want to risk waking them up by venturing into their room to turn off their bedside lamp. With the Wiser Plug, simply ‘Ask Alexa’, or connect with your Google Assistant, to do it and you won’t even need to leave the sofa!
The morning rush.
Have you ever left the house in the morning, only to question if you’ve turned the hair straighteners or iron off? As smart plugs work remotely, you can double-check and turn them off from your phone, which offers a Great Safety Precaution.
Wake up to a brew.
Ever wished the kettle could be boiled in time for your morning wake-up call? By using your app to schedule your smart plug, you can set your kettle to turn on at 6:55 am. When you make the journey downstairs, your cuppa will be ready within seconds!
Winner, winner, chicken dinner
There’s nothing nicer than coming home from work and having a meal ready and waiting. Connect a smart plug to your slow cooker, and you can turn it on from your desk, or schedule it to automatically come on. All you have to do when you get home is eat and relax.
Make your Wiser system even smarter with our new smart plugs, and you can enjoy all the comfort, convenience and Energy Savings of app control.
