Control appliances at home with Amazon Smart Plug in India

Control appliances at home with Amazon Smart Plug in India”

If you've been sent a Routine and want to set it up on your Alexa device, clicking the Routine's URL takes you to your Alexa app. Follow the on-screen instructions and customize the Routine to fit your needs.

The state retention feature ensures that appliances go back to their last state (on/off) in case of power outage and resumption.

With these three steps, you would be all set to make all the appliances at your home smarter! "Customers in India are increasingly experimenting with home automation and we want them to have simple yet affordable solutions to make their existing appliances smart using Alexa", said Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices, India.

Amazon is making it easier for Alexa device owners to use Routines. For example, you can create an Alexa Routine for bedtime that turns off all of your smart lights, sets the alarm for the next morning, and puts you to sleep with white noise.

Users can setup the device by plugging it into a standard 3-pin electrical socket setup and connecting it via the Alexa app. There is an on/ off button on the left side and an LED indicator on the front.

Today Amazon announced that it had enabled a feature allowing customers to share Alexa Routines that they've developed with friends, family, or anyone on the web. Also, they can remotely turn the smart plug on or off if they forgot to do it before leaving home. The Amazon Smart Plug acts as a buffer between the power socket and the appliance and allows you to use Alexa app or Alexa-enable smart speaker to switch on or off the appliance.

When a user receives a shared routine, they simply click the URL while on the mobile device where they have the Alexa app installed.

The Amazon Smart Plug is priced at Rs 1,999 in India and can now be purchased on Amazon India, as well as at select Croma and Reliance Digital outlets.

The Indian Express is now on Telegram.
