In our search for the best smart plugs, we have found another great gadget.
You can’t have a smart home if you still have those old dumb outlets. The Koogeek Wi-Fi Enabled Smart Outlet looks like a solid choice to get you started. This smart powerstrip even works with Apple HomeKit.
Smarter Than Your Average Power Strip
It looks like your standard power strip, but the Koogeek smart outlet will power up to three electronic appliances and three USB-powered devices. It has three HomeKit-enabled AC outlets that are separately switchable and Wi-Fi enabled. It could even perhaps prevent a burglary if you time your lights or other products just right.
In case you haven’t used it yet, Apple HomeKit gives you an easy and secure way to control all of your HomeKit-enabled accessories right from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple Watch. It makes your life more streamlined. You can also control your HomeKit-enabled accessories using just your voice via Siri.
Those features are great, but this outlet takes things a bit further by providing advanced security with end-to-end encryption and authentication between HomeKit accessories and your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. This outlet strip is a great alternative to more expensive options on the market.
The Koogeek app lets you control, monitor and schedule several connected accessories separately, all with an easy setup and a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network connection. This is the powerstrip evolved. Set your accessories to go on and off when you need them too, improving your daily routine.
Power It All
You can create scenes to control multiple devices. Just tap a scene on or off. You can also monitor your plugged in devices to see their power consumption, both daily and by the month. The smart USB charging ports detect connected devices and provide an output current of up to 4.1A.
What looks like a standard power strip is so much more. It is very handy for charging all of those devices that we use every day. Like your phone, video game controllers, wireless speakers, and much more. It is a very capable smart outlet.
