EcoFlow has a host of power solutions that can revolutionise how you power your home — but perhaps none quite as simple as the Smart Plug.
This small but mighty device can do a lot to transform your power usage. Smart plugs are devices you can plug into an existing outlet, creating a new smart outlet for you to plug your appliances into — giving you an immediate quality upgrade that allows you remote control and monitoring.
Let’s see why this EcoFlow product is a game-changer in your house’s energy ecosystem.
Did you know your plugged-in appliances can drain electricity — even when they’re not turned on? This is referred to as the home idle load.
Smart plugs allow you to effortlessly decrease this waste of electricity when you’re not using plugged-in devices. You only need to use the power required to maintain your smart plug’s connection.
Smart plugs can save you energy in many ways, including using schedules to cut off power to devices you aren’t using and taking advantage of off-peak energy times. This allows you to set up your device to optimally cut down on energy usage (and costs!) — and then not worry about it again. You can just set it and forget it.
Integration With Portable Power System
One of the most significant advantages of this device is its integration with your existing EcoFlow Portable Power Station. Pair it with an EcoFlow PowerSteam Microinverter and BKW-Battery Cable to take its potential even further.
Your EcoFlow Smart Plug monitors the energy consumption of plugged-in appliances in real-time, allowing the microinverter to allocate precisely the right amount of electricity to your devices — and, most importantly, send the surplus to your portable power station.
During peak hours, battery use is prioritised; this way, most energy is stored during off-peak hours. As a result, you save money, optimise your energy use within your household, and maximise your use of solar energy if you have an existing solar power system.
Integration With Smart Home Ecosystem
Want the convenience of controlling items in your home with the power of your voice? You can do it without the expense and hassle of switching your existing devices to their “smart” counterparts.
With the EcoFlow Smart Plug, you can upgrade any appliance you plug into it. Plug in a lamp, for example, and set up a connection with a voice-activated home assistant such as an Amazon Echo or Google Home. Then, using voice commands that you set up, you can switch your device on or off.
You can even set up routines for devices to turn themselves on in the morning and off again at night — all without the need to purchase new, upgraded technology.
Features & Functionality
The control your EcoFlow Smart Plug offers doesn’t stop there — you can control your appliances remotely through the EcoFlow App and track the energy consumption of different devices. Talk about ultimate convenience.
