All You Need
The Smart Plug is a perfect device to compliment your smart home. Use it in automations or control it on demand from your hub’s app.
The device is very responsive via Z-Wave and it also offers the option for manual control. With just the touch of a button, you can turn on or off anything that’s plugged into the Smart Plug – from lamps to coffee makers.
Plus, it’s small enough to fit two in the same receptacle. And if you want to disable physical control, no problem – just use your Z-Wave hub to take over. Once you integrate your system with a smart speaker, you’ll be able to trigger the plug with voice commands as well.
The Smart Plug is compatible with any Z-Wave hub. Just plug it in and scan the SmartStart QR code to set up. It’s that easy!
Energy monitoring can help you save energy in your home. The plug tracks energy use in real time which can then be processed into insightful data logs.
If you see that your power usage is high in the morning, you can adjust your habits to use less energy. You may also be able to save money by turning off appliances when they are not in use. Energy reports can contribute to identifying problems with your home’s insulation or airtightness, which can lead to further savings.
If your Z-Wave hub gives you access to advanced settings, you can decide how often the plug reports energy information to your system. Customizing the device’s behavior unlocks an additional layer of control over your smart home parameters.
There are a few reasons for using a Z-Wave smart plug over a Wi-Fi alternative.
Z-Wave devices are more secure. That’s why the leading security companies like ADT and Ring, use Z-Wave technology in their systems. Z-Wave plugs run on encrypted radio signal while Wi-Fi products rely on an unsecure network that can be easily hacked.
Products equipped with Z-Wave communicate faster and are more responsive. That’s because they don’t contribute to router overload. This makes them ideal for tasks like turning on lights or appliances instantly when needed.
Finally, Z-Wave plugs don’t rely on the cloud. This means that they continue to work even if the servers go offline. You can continue using your Z-Wave devices locally and have an operational system made up of different brands and device types, even if any of the companies stop supporting their product.
