We carry smart devices in our pockets, but for as smart as our personal gear is, our homes are severely lacking in technology. Without a wattmeter it is difficult to track how much power an outlet is using, and if you want to put an outlet on a schedule, current timers are clunky and confusing. Enter smart products and an initiative of having a connected home. D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug will track power usage, set schedules, and allows remote operation of outlets.
Packaging & What’s In The Box
For a full unboxing and overview of the WiFi Smart Plug be sure to check out our video below.
D-Link has packaged Wi-Fi Smart Plug in a white box with a picture of Wi-Fi Smart Plug and its companion app (iOS, Android) on the front. Left side describes basic setup with WPS, and right side is used to show off D-Link’s other Connected Home devices.
Lastly the back has a picture of a modern looking living space with a couch, table, lamp, and most importantly, Wi-Fi Smart Plug controlling the lamp. There is also a snapshot of the advanced schedule from Wi-Fi Smart Plug’s companion app. D-Link also uses the back to remind the customer that Wi-Fi Smart Plug can turn devices on or off, create on/off schedules, help prevent your devices from overheating, and monitor energy use of connected devices.
Wi-Fi Smart Plug is an oversized plug featuring an LED status light (red/orange/green), manual power button, WPS/reset button, and a 3 prong outlet.
Flipping it over to its back will reveal that its input and output are 120V, 15A. There is also a QR code on the back that you can scan to help with setup. If you don’t have access to the QR code, it is also on blue setup card that also came in the box.
