Much like GE and others have done with their smart thing outlets, i think it would be great to see the smart plug integrated into a duplex outlet. Then instead of having smart plugs hanging out, i can just replace a couple of outlets, pair them, and integrate under circuits as needed.
Agreed, I would love to see this. I only know of 1 in-wall outlet (ConnectSense) on the market right now that monitors energy. I believe Currant claims to have one on the way, but it’s not out yet as far as I’m aware. I’d love to see more of these on the market, especially from a company I’m already using.
Correction, there are a few more Tuya based products available. I just tend to mentally filter Tuya stuff out. Either way, there aren’t a lot of good options and it would be great to see something from a company I already use and trust.
