Unfortunately when conventional WiFi sockets are used with outdoor sockets, they do not enable the socket lid to be closed, removing the weatherproof rating. This unit has been developed to overcome the problem. Simply plug in the weatherproof WiFi switch, connect it using a mobile phone app and enjoy full control of any device which is plugged in, including timers. Can be integrated into Google Home, Amazon Alexa and other WiFi based platforms (use with an Alexa to enable voice control when in a hot tub seems to be a popular with our customers!)
WiFi smart home automation is becoming increasingly popular, enabling more convenient control of items in the garden, whilst reducing electricity bills. Ideal for outdoor appliances, lights and domestic Christmas lights.
The orange socket is compatible with standard UK 13A plugs, but is not compatible with plug RCDs (an RCD plug is much larger than a standard 13A plug, and will have test/reset buttons) or 16A European plugs.
A WiFi connection is required to enable the unit to be switched on/off, or for the timer to be programmed. However, once programmed, the timer function will continue to operate without WiFi. Where WiFi is not available at all, a stand alone plug in timer is also available here.
