What are Smart Sockets?
Smart Socket or Smart Plug is a power receptacle installed into a standard electrical socket to control and monitor your connected device's energy consumption.
How do smart sockets work?
Smart sockets plug into your standard electric socket. Once you have plugged in your device or appliance and connected the socket to the wifi or Zigbee variant, you can monitor your device or appliance's energy consumption through the app.
The app allows you to turn on/off the device whenever you want and set on/off schedules.
Some are also compatible with Amazon's Alexa and Google Home devices, where you can control your devices through voice commands, thus making your devices smart.
They are great; if you leave your house and forget to turn off your iron or tv, you can turn them off through your app.
How to decrease my electricity bill using smart sockets?
It's one thing to use them to monitor and control your devices, and it's another thing to use them to save energy!
One of the main reasons your energy bill is high is due to devices and appliances that consume passive electricity while on standby mode, devices like your tv and gaming consoles.
Shutting off all the devices and appliances that consume passive electricity can save a lot of money.
Smart plugs will show you which devices are passively consuming electricity, and you can set schedules for these devices to be shut off when they aren't used instead of being put on standby mode.
You can also monitor the energy consumption of appliances that are always on, like your refrigerator, and consider switching it to one that consumes less energy and provides the same benefits.
They can also help you turn off all the devices and appliances if you are going to be away for a while, thus reducing your passive energy consumption and electricity bill.
You can see how much energy smart sockets can save on an enterprise level as the passive energy consumption is about 40% due to small power devices being on 24/7.
They can reduce passive energy consumption and decrease the enterprise or building electricity bill by 20%.
How much electricity do smart plugs use?
Atlantic Energy states, "Smart plugs use about 1-2 Watts of power daily." This is minor compared to how much energy they save.
