My Top Five WiFi Plug Uses

Published on February 26, 2014

5. Lamp

Sure, it’s an obvious one, but sometimes the simplest ideas really are the best. If you’re tucked up under a duvet and moving to switch the light on or off really does seem like the end of the world, a flick of the finger on your phone is all it takes. I’ll confess to being lazy enough to make this one of my favourite WiFi Plug uses. It can also have a more practical use, like making sure all the lights are turned off when you’re out. Or, if you’re on holiday, you can set a timer to turn on a lamp at night to avert any potential burglaries. But, for me, it’s mainly about staying under the duvet.

4. Slow cooker

Slow cookers are brilliant. Lump some meat, potatoes and an onion in there and you’re just about done. For those who are not particularly gifted in the dark arts of cookery, they are a godsend. WiFi Plug makes the process even easier, you can set it to start cooking at a certain time, so it’s ready when you get back from work.

3. Coffee Machine/Kettle

That agonising wait for your vital early morning tea or coffee can seem like a lifetime. So I very much like being able to take a few extra minutes in bed whilst I wait for the kettle to boil or my coffee machine to churn into life. I can then spring up, awaking immediately to my vital burst of caffeine, ready to take on the day.

2. Electric blanket

It can sometimes take a great deal of willpower to emerge from your bed in the morning, knowing the harsh early morning chill will embrace you as soon as you leave the cocoon of your five duvets. As you might be able to tell at this point, I’m not a morning person, so I like to make them as easy as possible. Setting my electric blanket to come on about half an hour before I have to wake up makes that arduous climb out of bed so much easier.

1. Hair straighteners

I’ll admit, I’m not one to use hair straighteners – take one look at my not so fulsome head of hair and you would understand – but that doesn’t mean I don’t understand the hazard. There were 20,000 fires in the UK last year caused by faulty electrical appliances, it doesn’t take a great leap of the imagination to see the dangers straighteners present. If you’re a bit forgetful, or live with someone who is, it’s a great way of relieving the daily ‘oh fiddlesticks, did I leave my straighteners on’ panic.

MiFi & WiFi Plug

Published on February 16, 2014

Here’s a really cool feature if you live out in the sticks or don’t have broadband.

You can buy a MiFi device for approx £30 and then have complete control if you are out of range of your normal WiFi.

Perhaps you have a holiday home or cottage, you can still control your electric heating or whatever you like using MiFi & WiFi Plug. This works wherever you get a 3G signal so check your networks coverage before you buy.

Inside the WiFi Plug

Published on October 9, 2013

 For those of you who don’t want to void your warranty, we have saved you the time. Here is the inside of a WiFi Plug.

As you can see it has an Antenna for extra long Range (upto 90M) – This is why it is rectangle in shape.

The WiFi Receiver and Power switch are the 2 blocks along with a range of sensors, silicon diodes and solders – basic you may think but over 6 months to develop! Enjoy – if you’re a Techie like us!
