Kool Tools: Wi-Fi Smart Plug
D-Link's Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W215) is its first product in a new line of Connected Home solutions designed to bring the convenience and flexibility of mydlink to everyday household electronic devices. The compact Wi-Fi Smart Plug allows users to monitor and control their home’s electronic devices from anywhere.
Using the free mydlink app for iOS and Android smartphones or tablets, users can set power on/off schedules, turn devices on and off remotely and monitor energy usage at home or on-the-go. With advanced power scheduling features, the mydlink app can be used to create on/off schedules for home appliances and devices, a useful feature for increasing home security with automated lights.
For even more peace-of-mind, the Wi-Fi Smart Plug comes with a built-in thermal sensor that will automatically shut off connected devices if they overheat. In addition, the mydlink Wi-Fi Smart Plug features a simple one-button installation – users press the WPS button on their existing router and on the Smart Plug, and then download the mydlink Smart Plug mobile app to start setup.
The Smart Plug's Wi-Fi connectivity requires no additional hub or network and works with any Wi-Fi network. You can also monitor the power consumption of connected devices.
The Wi-Fi Smart Plug (DSP-W215) is available for US$49.99 (EDLP).Go to www.dlink.com/dsp-w215 for more info.
