Smart homes are becoming more common by the day. A Wi-Fi enabled extension cord can come in really handy for home automation. Here are a few options to choose from.
Wi-Fi enabled extension cords are the way to go if you want to monitor a number of electrical devices at your home. With these cords, you can leave things plugged in charging even when you’re not at home and turn off the extension cord from afar, thanks to Wi-Fi enabled functionality. Incidentally, many of them come with dedicated USB slots which eliminate the need to plug in a phone charging adapter, giving you more free sockets for other devices. All in all, Wi-Fi enabled extension cords are a great addition to your home automation system.
In the market for a feature-rich smart extension for home or office use? This is a great pick to opt for.

It works well with 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks, letting you connect wirelessly to your smartphone, from where you can monitor your appliances no matter where you are. No more worrying about whether you switched the mains to your PS4 off or not! Incidentally, you can also track energy consumption by the socket- individually for each connected device.
If space-saving is your concern, then this is the smart Wi-Fi enabled extension cord to go for. It comes with 3 universal power sockets, meaning you can even plug in laptops and electronics from overseas, and a set of USB ports at one side, which makes more room for your laptop or PC mains. The near 1.8-meter cable length is good enough and lets you move it around with freedom in the room or the office space. On this strip, you can even add family member control, and operate each of the sockets individually.
