It doesn’t matter whether it’s a house or an apartment: everywhere there are lamps and electrical appliances that accidentally stay on or consume a lot of electricity in standby. Do you want to keep the electricity bill under control this year without having to think about it all the time or warn the roommates? Eliminate the worst offenders with smart plugs. It costs extra, but pays off in the medium term.
But if you don’t want to invest money or training time in a smart home system, go with one that’s already plugged into your phone line anyway. The FritzBox not only can do the Internet, but also offers the best wireless socket in the CHIP test, the FritzDect 210, a proven smart socket that can even be used outdoors thanks to the splash water protection.
“You get the best overall package with the AVM FRITZ!DECT 210. The connector provides good measurement results, is easy to use and has many functions. Thanks to IP44 splash protection, it is also suitable for use outdoors. Unfortunately, the connector requires a Fritz to configure it!Box router. And for voice control you take detours.”
