How Smart Plug Outlet Works

Smart plugs enable the user to control the power delivered to the connected appliances easily. Essentially, they work by automatically switching appliances on and off via a switch connected to the outlet. Smart plugs have in-built circuitry that enables the user to easily control the plug through an application linked to a smartphone. A plug connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi links directly with a smartphone. The one connected via a Z-wave or Zigbee smart hub links indirectly.

Once you power the smart plug using the mobile app, it starts delivering energy to the connected appliances. When the smart plug is turned off through the app, it immediately stops delivering power. Other smart plugs are also capable of even recording the power consumed by the connected appliances.

Benefits of smart plug sockets

smart plug functions

Identify appliances using a lot of energy helping you to save more

The amount an appliance consumes can be tracked once the application is connected through a smart plug. This helps the user to determine the appliances that consume more energy. When you never intend to buy many smart plugs, you can plug a single appliance at a time.

Arrangement for minimal vampire power

Vampire power is the energy used up by electric appliances during the standby mode. Smart plugs prevent the devices from consuming the vampire power. At times, the power consumed on standby mode can make up 10 percent of a household’s total electricity bills.

Optimize your mobile and toothbrush charging stations

Mobile phones and toothbrush charging stations only require 2-3 hours of continuous charging before power is disconnected. Thanks to the smart plug, it helps you to do this. You can automatically schedule to switch off the power of an appliance at a set time using a smart plug.

Reduce your chance of electrical fires

Connecting appliances through a smart plug ensures that they are switched off whenever they are not in use. This minimizes the chances of the appliances having faults or even catching fire when not under supervision.

Keep your home secure

When away from home, you can set actions using a mini smart socket before heading off. Smart plugs can be set to switch lights on and off automatically.  This gives an impression that you are still around even when you may be far away from home.

Prepare a meal ahead of time

A smart plug enables you to easily upgrade a slow cooker that cannot be connected through the internet by default. Smart plugs can be used to control the supply of power on slow cookers. With the help of a smart plug, you can now easily prepare a meal ahead of time by remotely turning on a slow cooker using a mobile application before getting home.

Limit screen time

Smart plugs can be used to control power in a television, internet router, or even in the charging ports of a smartphone. By using a smart plug, you can now limit the time of screen watching.

Set the perfect temperature

Temperatures for fans and heater plug-ins can be set using smart plugs. Moreover, a smart plug prevents a fan from running at longer times by cutting down power when the user is not around.

Regulate your appliances with your voice

Some smart plugs are designed with an in-built voice command. By installing smart plugs at your home, you can successfully add voice control to your electrical sockets. This enables you to remotely turn your devices on and off without necessarily reaching over the plug.

Accessibility

If you are uncomfortable moving around, smart plugs let you easily access and automatically control plugged-in appliances while at any location. Smart home plugs from MOKO enable you to access your home remotely.

Christmas light automation

With the Christmas holidays approaching, consider purchasing smart plugs to control your Christmas decorations. Smart plugs automatically power off Christmas lights at set times, continuously as long as required.

Equipment control

An agricultural irrigation system connected to power by smart plugs is easy to manage. The smart plugs can sense and send collected data on temperature, pressure, and humidity to the BIoT platform.

Advantages of Wi-Fi Smart plugs over Bluetooth/ Zigbee/ LoRaWAN/ Z-Wave Smart Plugs

  • Price – Wi-Fi smart plugs are less costly compared to the other home automation protocols. Moreover, it is much easier to acquire a DIY smart Wi-Fi socket, making it a cheaper option.
  • Wi-Fi is more common – Most households are already connected with a Wi-Fi network; hence it is more convenient to use smart plugs with a Wi-Fi wall outlet. Besides, the other home automation protocols like Zigbee and Z-Wave require a hub to operate and are too technical.
  • Simple to use – When it comes to simplicity, Wi-Fi smart sockets take the lead. As Wi-Fi is more common, the basic setup of the Wi-Fi electric outlet is easier, and the user does not necessarily have to purchase extra hardware.

Disadvantages of Wi-Fi Smart plugs over Bluetooth/ Zigbee/ LoRaWAN/ Z-Wave Smart Plugs

  • Wi-Fi does not support mesh networks – Only a Z-Wave and Zigbee smart plug can be remotely controlled through a mesh network. Wi-Fi smart outlet plugs cannot communicate via a mesh network.
  • Weak network – The Z-Wave and ZigBee protocols offer a stronger network over longer distances than Wi-Fi plug-in wall smart plugs.
  • High power usage – Wi-Fi-controlled outlet smart plugs consume more power than those using the other home automation protocols.
  • Can only connect a limited number of devices – Most Wi-Fi smart plugs can only connect to less than 20 appliances. More than 20 appliances slow down the strength of the Wi-Fi network. Zigbee can handle over a thousand connections, whereas Z-Wave can permit up to 231 connected devices per network.

Comparison between Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, LoRaWAN, and Z-Wave smart plugs

wireless technologies in smart plug socket

A smart Wi-Fi plug communicates to the central control hub using a Wi-Fi network. The data collected is then sent by the hub to the user’s mobile app still via Wi-Fi. On the other hand, for a Bluetooth smart plug to effectively work on the mobile app, smart home hub, or voice assistant, they must be connected to a Bluetooth outlet. A Zigbee plug uses a mesh network to send information to the control hub and only connects to Zigbee compatible hubs. The mesh networking also increases the range of the Zigbee devices connected to the network.

Smart plugs using the LoRaWAN protocol must be linked either to a public or private LoRaWAN network. The network enables the user to control the smart plug adapter operations on the connected appliances remotely. It also helps the user to monitor the energy consumed by appliances connected to the plug. For a Z-Wave smart outlet, you can only control it from your phone through the Z-Wave Hub. The Z-Wave hub enables you to manage wireless electric outlets. This home automation protocol enables you to remotely track the power consumed by the appliances connected to the plug.

All in all, the Wi-Fi smart plug is the most recommendable for smart home uses. The Wi-Fi network is a bit fast, economical, easy to install, widely available, and has a wide operating range compared to the other plugs.
