Controlling stuff around the home with one of those funky home automation things does seem quite daunting, but this doo-hickey seems like a pretty good and simple solution. It plugs into any electrical socket and, using a smartphone app, lets you flick appliances on or off.
The WiSPP sockets connect to your WiFi and then you just use your phone to turn stuff on or off around the house. It’s ideal for those those phone chargers, lamps, irons, TVs, consoles or electric blankets that you can easily leave turned on.
There’s an iOS and Android app and it means you can flick the lights on before you get home (or if you’re on holiday), turn off the iron if you’re called out of the house or you could even control appliances for others – perhaps turning off devices for elderly relatives etc. It’ll work on any data connection anywhere – you don’t have to be in the house.
It is, according to the makers, simply a matter of plugging in the WiSPP, downloading the free SmartPoint app, then entering the WiFi details. Done.
Each one of these is £29.98 and you can get more details here. There’s a lovely promotional video for you below..
Turn Your Home Into A Smart Home Instantly With WiSPP Wi-Fi Smart Plug
The launch of an exciting WiFi Smart Point Plug offers homeowners the simplest, smartest and most affordable way to add home automation from their mobile devices. The pioneering new product from UCam247 enables users to turn a plethora of electrical appliances on and off from wherever they are in the world, without any technical skills, from the convenience of a smart phone or tablet.
By plugging appliances into WiSPP sockets, users are granted greater flexibility and control over their gadgets, enabling them to turn on and off an endless array of appliances and devices including phones, cameras, lights and lamps, electronic blankets, irons, televisions, radios, fans and heating. Indeed, anything that can be plugged in can be controlled from an iPhone, iPad or Android device rectifying those chilling situations such as realising you’ve left the iron on during your morning commute or forgetting to leave the lights on while you’re out for the night.
Set to save users energy, money and time as well as eliminating the risk of dangers such as fire hazards, the WiSPP operates easily for both tech savvy users and those who haven’t yet got to grips with their modern advancements. Ensuring that all homes evolve into smart environments, users can simply plug in the WiSPP, download the free SmartPoint app to their device, enter their WiFi details and begin immediately.
Bindu Gor, Marketing Manager at UCam247 says, “We use technology to add convenience to our lives but often our technological purchases can cause us problems! WiSPP enables people to control their home appliances with ease. People can have complete autonomy over their items so that if you leave the home and realise you’ve left the hair straighteners on, or any other electrical appliance, you don’t have to rush back home to sort it out. You can rectify it there and then just using your phone.”
Utilising Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G, users can even turn on and off devices from abroad or whilst out and about without being connected to Wi-Fi. The WiSPP also enables users to set countdown timers to schedule the turning off of fully charged appliances to prevent electricity wastage and overheating, set identities and remote access passwords. More than one device can be synced to control the WiSPP meaning that the less forgetful half of a couple can ensure that technology remains working as it should.
Ms Gor added, “A common modern syndrome is getting into your car and no sooner have you done so than you start thinking, “Did I leave the iron on? Did I turn the lights off?” These questions no longer need to be obsessive ‘what if’ ruminations. You can check from your phone and turn on and off any appliance connected to the socket. It’s especially great if you’re a busy professional or have a few forgetful family members!”
Up to 150 plugs can be installed, enabling endless appliances to operate using the WiSPP. All purchases include 1 WiSPP, a getting started guide, 1 warranty card and an easy-to-follow instruction manual.
