I love home automation and have added all sorts of devices to my home over the last several years. For all the devices I have the most used and most useful are smart lights.
I’ve said many times to not use smart bulbs and to use smart switches instead, but what if you want to control more than just lights? What if you want to control power to something like 3d printers, a soldering iron, or even a flat iron; something that would be dangerous to keep on when away but something that don’t have just one location and thus doesn’t have just one switch to control it.
That is where smart plugs come in.
