What is meant by Smart Home sockets?
Smart Home sockets are designed to help automate your household in order to provide maximum comfort within your four walls. Most smart home sockets are intermediate plugs that are simply plugged into a conventional socket. They function as adapters, so to speak, and can be connected to all conceivable wired electrical devices. They then regulate the power supply to the connected device - similar to a switchable socket, but in a much more convenient way.
How does a smart home socket work?
The operating principle of a smart home socket is quite simple. In most cases, the modules are equipped with a radio receiver that transmits and receives signals wirelessly. This enables you to control the respective device via voice assistant, remote control or the manufacturer's own smartphone app. The latter can also be used to operate your devices when you are not at home. For example, you can make sure that the iron is off when you are out and about. Furthermore, you can easily set up your Smart Home socket via the app and integrate it into an existing network.
Many models even allow you to create automated schedules that are based on your individual habits. For example, you can arrange for a light that is connected to the smart socket to no longer be supplied with power after a certain time. This is a simple way to save energy and ultimately money. Some models even have an integrated measuring function that makes it possible to monitor power consumption without much effort.
For which applications is a Smart Home socket suitable?
Regardless of whether you want to automate your coffee maker, your TV, your chain of lights or your dehumidifier: it's easy with a Smart Home socket, because the module is suitable for all wired electrical appliances in your private household. No complex wiring is required for commissioning.
What should you consider when buying?
If you want to integrate your smart radio-controlled socket into an existing automated network, you should make sure that the module is compatible with the other smart home devices before buying it. In many cases, the different components in a smart home system can only interact with each other if the same radio standard is used. For example, a ZigBee socket cannot be linked with a Smart Home light that communicates via WLAN. If you decide to use a Wi-Fi socket, you should also make sure that your router supports the corresponding frequency. If you buy a ZigBee socket, you also need a bridge that serves as a smart control centre. The advantage: ZigBee networks consume comparatively little power.
Furthermore, before ordering, you should read the article description to find out the maximum power and current that the respective smart home socket can handle. If the maximum value is exceeded, the module can overheat.
