The WeMo Insight Smart Plug comes with built-in energy management tools to help you cut down on waste and lower those monthly power bills.
Smart plugs that track energy usage let you identify (and eliminate) power guzzlers. They can help you cut down on energy waste, which can result in lower power bills. Some smart plugs come with smart meters that track energy usage. These meters tell you (in real time) how much energy each device uses. You can finally find out whether it’s that tangle of hair styling tools or the Xbox that’s gobbling up electricity.
On top of rooting out active energy wasters, you can also cut down on latent energy use. When devices are plugged in, they leach energy—even if they’re turned off. Smart plugs give you the ability to restrict or prevent dormant energy consumption from appliances that you keep plugged in all the time.
