Using Smart Plugs With Alexa

“Alexa, turn on the living room lamp”.

The Wiser smart plug is the perfect partner to your Wiser smart heating system and can truly make your home ‘smart’.


Monitor, control and set schedules for your electrical appliances, all with Alexa commands and at a price you can afford. Discover a wide range of uses, like deterring burglars by setting up automated activation for your lamps while you’re away, switching on the slow cooker on your way home from work to have those ingredients bubbling on your return, or even getting the kettle on sat in bed!

Adding smart plugs to your Wiser smart heating network is easy, simply add them wirelessly via the Wiser Heat App, assign a name, and start controlling electrical appliances with your phone or hands-free with Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant. Find out how to enable Amazon Alexa integration with your smart heating and smart plugs.

Smart Plugs – A Myriad Of Possibilities

As well as syncing with in-home assistants such as Alexa, smart plugs offer true remote convenience if you’re away from home, whether that’s at work or on holiday. 

For example, you can connect a slow cooker full of tasty ingredients to a smart plug and have it start cooking several hours before you set off home, so a delicious meal is ready on your arrival. Decided to work overtime? No problem, you can also turn it off remotely too.

Ever had that feeling you’ve left the iron or your hair straighteners on whilst sat on the train to work? No problem, when they’re connected to a smart plug simply check and turn them off on your phone. 

Worried about your home being empty whilst on holiday? Set a schedule so your lamps turn on and off during the day and evening. With the ability to set up to eight ON/OFF events per day and capacity for up to 10 smart plugs per Wiser system, it’s likely to deter would-be burglars.

Connecting Smart Plugs To Alexa
