Elphi: The Smart Plug for iPhone and Android
Another technological advance to make things just that much easier/lazier. I myself am usually annoyed if i know ive left something on downstairs and im drifting into sleep, and what wins in that situation? Fuck it, just leave it on and fall asleep, turn it off later. With this device these situations will no longer be a hassle, if you’re a napper/if you’re forgetful and are always leaving things turned on when you leave. Although only available in the USA & Canada at the moment as they are still in the early stages, i hope this comes to the UK.
Elphi is a “smart plug” that works with iPhones and Android-powered smartphones. The plug can be used to monitor and control all of the things you plug into your wall sockets. To use it, all you need to do is install the accompanying app on your phone and a Wi-Fi connection.
Just fire up the app to turn lights on and off and to receive updates and push notifications of the power statuses of your appliances. You can even share Elphi plugs with friends and allow them to monitor or control items plugged in.
