In the future, home automation is going to be a common place. We have seen the integration of smartphones in controlling our TV sets or even unlock and start our cars, and we have also seen technologies that turn our lights on and off.
Innovation needs not be expensive, in local setting, the CDR-King’s latest device Wi-Fi Smart Plug is for those who can’t let go of their smartphone and want to integrate mobile computing at home at a very reasonable price.
Basically, the CDR-King Wi-Fi Smart Plug enables home switches and receptacles into simple smartphone-based switches. With corresponding smartphone app, you can sit on your comfortable chair and control appliances and lights around your house using your local home Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi Smart Plug is ideal for home and office automation. You can pair the smart plug with any appliance and use its free Android or iOS app to turn the appliances on and off, you can also set custom schedules, and monitor the energy usage of appliances.
I tried the device in my n-scale electric train; you can see in the video that it controls the start and stop along with the lamp posts ON and OFF. I’ve been planning to automate it and this device is a heaven sent as it exactly achieved the setup I want to implement.
The above video is just a small preview of what the CDR-King Wi-Fi Smart Plug could do. You can use it to schedule feeding power to your electric fan once your AC’s off timer ticks in.
As for the Wi-Fi repeater, basically it needs to be within the range of your main access point and it will bounce the signals out to your remote wireless devices.
For added features: it supports smart charging protection, which automatically cuts off the power once the attached plugged in device is fully charge.
