Using a KMC smart plug is a great way to automate your home and control which devices are turned on. For example, you can use it as a way to switch on a lamp or a TV before you arrive home.
With the KMC smart plug, I get more done in less time. I’ve been using it for about a month now. It’s so easy to use! It’s hard to imagine life without KMC smart plugs.
Additionally, KMC plug models are also compatible with Amazon Alexa, making my life even more manageable since I can control my KMC plugs from anywhere in the world.
However, it is a simple plug that allows users to turn their lights, fans, TVs, or any other device on or off using an app on their phone.

Using the app, you can set the devices’ names like ‘AC-1, AC-2, Bulb-1, TV’ and turn them on and off by voice control with ‘Alexa’ and ‘Google Home.
There is a ‘Notification’ setting in the app. You can turn this on so that it can notify you in the ‘Message Center’ of your phone when you are offline. Such a handy feature to have.
One of the best things about the KMC mini-plug is that you can schedule it to control any electric appliance in your home using the KMC smart app. That means you can set the timing for any particular device to turn on and off.
The feature also will help you control your kids’ activities by scheduling when the TV or Computer should switch off. You can also make sure that your home’s lights turn on and off automatically at the proper time when you are not in the city.

2. KMC Smart Tap 2-Pack
This four-plug smart Wi-Fi outlet is the biggest competitor for all other smart plugs on the market.
It works with almost all voice control apps found in the Apple App Store and Google Play stores, such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Echo Dot, and Smart Life. It would be best if you had a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network and an Android device with Android 4.1 or iOS 9 at least.
The smart remote control can operate all the electric appliances connected to this smart plug from anywhere at any time. In addition, it allows you to schedule and set a timer for the lights to turn on and off based on Sunrise and Sunset.
There are four outlets in the tool, of which one is an ‘always on’ outlet. Unfortunately, these plugs are too close to each other so you can’t plug two oversized phone chargers adjoining each other.
Notifications in the ‘Message Center’ of your cellphone will notify you if you are connected or not. Using the smart app, you can also monitor activities, monitor energy usage, and control them.
Moreover, I appreciate the addition of a thermal sensor inside the plug-in safety, which automatically shuts down overheated appliances.

Like other devices, it also requires a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network connection. Once you download and install the app on your smartphone, you are ready to control every electric device connected to the tool.
Despite being away from home, you don’t have to worry because it has a feature that enables you to control every connected device remotely. So, for example, if you’re not in the town, you can have it control your home’s lights to pretend that you are always there.
