Everybody wants to save on power and keep his or her power bill to an affordable level. The most basic rule to achieve that is to unplug appliances that are not in use.
But there is also a way for you to save on energy and cut off power to an unused appliance without having to go over to the machine or contraption to unplug it.
How? By using smart plugs that are available in the market.
Remote-Controlled Electrical Plugs
The Etekcity Wireless Remote-Control Electrical Outlet Switch is on sale right now at 41 percent off its original price of $28.99.
Back in November, the same device was also sold at a discount of 24 percent from its original cost of $21.05, but this time, the price cut is bigger.
The smart plug has garnered 4.5 stars out of 5 from over 3,000 reviews on Amazon.
Features and Benefits
With the Etekcity smart plug, a user can remotely control those hard-to-reach appliances and gadgets without built-in power ON/OFF switches at the push of a button, thus saving the user the trouble of unplugging and plugging in appliances.
That function would be a big help to those who are mobility disabled.
Also, the smart plug can eliminate wasteful standby power and reduce energy use thus allowing the user to save on electric bills and extend a product’s life.
The plug’s radio frequency (RF) signal can penetrate doors and walls without interfering with other electronic devices and can operate from as far as 100 feet.
A principal feature of the smart plug is its low standby power consumption, and the outlet stays off after a power outage to save on power.
Smart plugs are gaining popularity among households that want to save on energy and cut their power bills as evidenced by numerous positive reviews of the device.
