Find and compare the right wireless power outlet for your home. Remotely control appliances, set timers from your Android or iPhone.

Internet-enabled electrical outlets, plugs, power strips and switches are a great way to start building a smart home. They add convenience to any appliance and can make a big dent in your electric bills by keeping unused appliances turned off and reducing "standby" consumption.

You'll be able to turn devices on and off remotely from anywhere with an Internet connection, set automation rules for intelligent home behavior that adapts to your own lifestyle and usage habits, and monitor power consumption in real time.

The following Channel Guide will help you:

  • Determine which wireless type you need (WiFi, Bluetooth, etc)
  • Get app reviews, and see if the switch can work with your Android or iPhone.
  • Filter based on additional energy saving or monitoring features.
