Meet the Intellisocket: a smart outlet that helps you monitor your energy usage and conserve energy. It monitors and reports on your electricity usage and notifies you via e-mail or push alerts how you can reduce your energy. The Intellisocket can be used to turn off your electronics or put them on a schedule. It also offers neat features such as child lock, timers, and over current protection.
This app-enhanced outlet does not require an additional gateway or a subscription plan to work. You can find out more about it on Kickstarter.
