Remote Control Appliances with the Smart Power Strip

by Julia Homier | Dec. 10, 2013

The Smart Power Strip allows its users to control their plugged-in home appliances through a smartphone app for iOS and Android. Besides turning the appliance on and off directly, the app can also function as timer and will turn an appliance on and off at a certain time, it can also send notifications appliances have been on for too long, and monitor the specific energy consumption of different electronics.

The current Smart Power Strip prototype has three U.S. power sockets, but the final model will include four. The app will provide real time statistics on the energy consumption of each appliance, including kilowatts per hour.
