We’ve all been there—it’s three hours into a drive to see family over the holidays and we just can’t remember if we left the bedroom light or hair straightener on. Save yourself the giant electric bill or moment of panic with smart outlets. This Amazon Alexa and Google Home compatible outlet from Currant will help you monitor energy use, turn appliances on and off from outside your home, and schedule power to everything from humidifiers to Christmas lights.

How It Works

Currant’s smart outlet system can be accessed from your smart phone and controlled on the app or via Alexa or Google Home. Each outlet includes two plugs with a plate that can switch directions to keep cords out of the way.

Cut Your Electric Bill

The Currant smart outlet uses AI to identify usage patters and suggest changes that can help you cut your electric bill. The outlets monitor energy for all your appliances and present findings in interactive graphs. You can see your energy consumption and cost by hour, day, month, and year, and find those hidden energy hogs.

Why Customers Love It

Customers love this smart outlet system because they’re able to monitor the energy footprint of individual appliances and eliminate appliances that were sucking up too much energy. Another reviewer loved the ability to turn off electronics while at work and stop worrying about that curling iron. The sleek design and mirror-like plate were also a draw.
