VeSync WiFi Smart Plug with Power Monitor
Making your Home smarter sounds exciting, is it not? Here is a cool home automation device that could make your life easier. Integrating this wifi smart plug in your home allows you to control any of your equipment from anywhere in the world. You can monitor the power usage, schedule the on-off time and whatnot.
VeSync smart plug works with both Alexa and Google Assistant for voice controlled operation. This is a very useful feature and I always recommend people to buy a device that supports both Alexa and Google. You will thank me later.
The second most helpful feature of this smart plug is the power usage monitor. With its smartphone app, you can monitor real time energy usage of any device connected via the plug. I can’t stress how useful this feature it. I always use it to save my electricity bill. Wondering how? since the plug has scheduling option, I set my laptop (the higher power consumer in my case) to turn off charging during afternoon 3 to 6 where the electricity charge is double (here in Arizona). So, I save some money by doing that.
