Have you ever wished that your appliances could do the thinking for you? That you house would just run itself? Or even that you could save energy without having to run around the house every night to switch off all the power points?
Finally there is an easy, affordable way to make your wishes come true! The carbonTRACK Smart Plug is more than just a pretty wall accessory. If you’re wondering how it’s going to change you life (and believe me, it will), here are 5 of the many awesome things that you can do with a Smart Plug:
Have you ever wondered how much it really costs to run your appliances? Or wanted to upgrade to more energy efficient models, but feel unsure about which will give you the biggest savings? When you connect your appliance through a smart plug you can track how much electricity it consumes. You will see which of your appliances use the most energy, and you can easily decide what to upgrade first.
You can schedule your appliances to turn off and on through your smart plug. This means that whether it’s summer or winter, you can set a time for your air conditioner, fan or heater to turn on so that your home is the perfect temperature when you get home from a hard day at work.
Vampire power is the power your electronic devices use when they are on standby. Vampire or standby power makes up to 10% of your electricity bills. When you connect your appliances to smart plugs, you can switch them off from your phone when you’re about to leave the house or go to sleep, or schedule them to turn off when you know you won’t be using them. This way, you can save power without even thinking about it!
If you’re going away over the weekend or heading overseas for a holiday, you can connect your lamps to the smart plug. Once connected, you can set timers for your lights to come on at night to create the illusion of activity and warn off intruders.
Unsure of what’s using the most electricity? Plug one an appliance at a time to a smart plug. You can then track how much each appliance consumes and decide which appliance you want to keep attached to the smart plug so you can switch it off when it’s not being used.
If you are a control freak, the Smart Plug gives you more control than ever. Or, if you just want to save energy, save money, and not have to worry about remembering which switches you turned on that day, you can let the Smart Plug be the brainpower, while you get on with more important things… like trying that new restaurant around the corner!
