GadgetGuy’s take: Weatherproof IP68 and very easy to use. These are definite candidates for IFTTT and a sensor.

Remote control 240V plug with USB 5V/1.5A charger port $20

You can add smarts to any 240V/10A powerpoint to enable scheduling or remotely turn them on/off.

Yes, I know you can flick a switch, but “OK Google, turn off the heater’ is far easier. Or use it with an iron and never worry again if you left it on.

GadgetGuy’s take: This is a low-cost item (Bunnings have it for $15) – last year I was paying $60 for similar WeMo remote switches. And it has a 7.5W charger suitable for iPhone, iPad and more USB charging.

GadgetGuy’s take – BrilliantSmart is a brand worth looking for

We do due diligence to ensure that all products have local support and warranty. We are impressed that BrilliantSmart is IFTTT compliant and as a bonus, these are well made and work – the first time.

We are pleased to add BrilliantSmart to our #Stop the Energy rip-off campaign, and we look forward to seeing this brand develop and expand.

Our ratings are collectively 4.5-out-of-5 for performance, price and local backing. Just remember that you may have to insist the retailer go looking for the products and don’t accept some no-name substitute.
