Create an energy-efficient home using the Smart Plug from SwannOne to measure energy efficiency of appliances and remotely turn off unneeded appliances. Serving as a go-between for outlet and a plugged-in device, the Smart Plug measures the current travelling from the outlet to the appliance and records the energy usage. Using the SwannOne application, mobile alerts can be sent to your smartphone or tablet allowing you to turn off or on a plugged-in appliance. Additionally, the SwannOne application includes an open platform, allowing you to connect non-Swann devices to your network. The system is compatible with the Nest Thermostat, Philips Hue Lighting, and Yale Locks.
