It is often believed that smart plugs have no special significance in smart home products, but tech experts believe that it is not really that. If seen in the utility terms, they can automate the normal products of your home and make it very easy to make a part of your smart home ecosystem. There is a need to take note of some things before buying them to take full advantage of them.

Buy only after compatibility check

Smart plugs do not work with all voice assistants. There will not be more options on using the Apple Home Kit only, but the iHome and IDWays are better for getting started. Similarly, if your Smart Home command center includes Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, then you will get many options. You only have to look at the details of the product and choose the appropriate plug.

The choice of plugins with the right features will be beneficial

Energy Monitoring: How much power your device is consuming every day, week or month, this information is displayed in the conferencing app of the smart plug. Some smart Wi-Fi plugs not only monitor the use of your energy but also work with Google Assistant and Alexa.

Scheduling and Sense: A smart machine can be set to automatically turn on or off by placing smart plugs on small devices like coffee makers, lamps, fans or TVs. These options offer several smart plug-ins, which can be used to turn off all devices in the morning routines or bedtime. With some smart plug apps, you can also schedule a repeat schedule every day or according to sunrise and sunset time. If your smart plug works with Google Assistant or Alexa, then you can also incorporate it inside the scenes or routines. Like “Alexa, Movie Time”, the lights can turn on Dim and TV.

Away modes: This feature comes in handy for more practical use. Set the date and time range to operate this function. Then when you are away from home, your smart plug lights will turn randomly on and off so that nobody knows that there is nobody in the house.
