A SPC expanded its Smart Home Power range – made up of different smart sockets – with two new references, CLEVER PLUG DUAL e CLEVER PLUG USB. Both models add to the existing CLEVER POWER STRIP, an intelligent socket, and CLEVER PLUG MINI, designed in a reduced format to adapt to any space.
One of the main characteristics of these smart sockets is their WiFi connection, to control them directly by the smartphone through the SPC IoT application, as well as other IoT products connected to the same network. In this sense, it is possible to configure its operation and characteristics to create integrated and complete experiences for the user. The CLEVER PLUG DUAL combines two AC ports in a very compact size to fit in any space, while the CLEVER PLUG USB has one AC port and two USB ports for high versatility.
SPC smart sockets are versatile devices that allow you to control any device connected to them: the coffee maker, the heater, the heater or the television, among others. In this way, any of these devices can be turned on or off via the smartphone, even from outside the home, or on / off rules can be created to limit their operating time.
SPC continues to bet on smart outlets
More advantages: if they are part of a home automation ecosystem, through the main voice assistants (Amazon Alexa and Google Home Assistant) or with other devices of the SPC Smart Home line, it is possible to create a routine or scenario associated with its use. For example, having the television and kettle on when you get home or off when saying “good night” to a voice assistant – the possibilities are endless!
In addition to the benefits related to comfort and convenience, smart sockets also allow you to save on your electricity bill, one of the main concerns in the home economy, and consume less energy to protect the environment. Smart sockets prevent products such as televisions or monitors from being left on standby by automatically turning them off when you leave the house or go to sleep. In this way, standby consumption would be eliminated to the point of being able to save around 10% of your monthly electricity bill according to data from Poupa Energia, a platform for comparing electricity tariffs managed by ADENE – Agência para a Energy.
CLEVER PLUG DUAL, double socket for multiple charging
The CLEVER PLUG DUAL combines two AC ports, 16A each and independently configurable, in a very compact size, to fit in any space. It has a maximum power of 3,680W. In addition, it helps to monitor power consumption to determine the efficiency of the various connected devices.
CLEVER PLUG USB, a triple plug for AC and USB charging
The CLEVER PLUG USB offers a lightweight, portable and very comfortable to use design. It has a maximum power of 2300W and has an AC port (10A) and two USB ports. Like the previous reference, CLEVER PLUG USB helps to monitor energy consumption in order to determine the efficiency of the different connected devices.
