Wemo (US version here).
It’s inevitable that electricity bill will increase because Coronavirus Disease COVID-19 pandemic has forced most people to stay home. While working from home, it may be too troublesome to keep switching off lights and appliances when not in use. Or we simply have no energy to disinfect the power switches. This’s where Wemo can help.
By comparison Wemo smart power plugs maybe more expensive than other competing models. However, the casing is more stylish and the app comes with very user-friendly interface.
As standalone Wi-Fi devices, they work without a hub. We can control them with voice commands since they’re compatible with smart speakers like Amazon Echo. The Insight model comes with energy monitoring function in additional to the standard features like remote switching, scheduling and away mode. Energy monitoring function is useful for identifying appliances with high energy consumption where we can target for energy saving.
