When it comes to smart devices, it's easy to focus on basic lighting operation. However, the possibilities go much further than that. The options are really only limited by your creativity. Here are six ways to use Enbrighten plug-in Wi-Fi smart controls you might not have considered.

1. Rise and shine

Give yourself a pick-me-up every morning before you even get out of bed. A traditional coffee maker can become a personal barista in moments with the help of a smart switch. Prepare your coffee maker before going to bed, flip its power switch to the ON position and schedule the smart device to turn on a few minutes before you wake up. You’ll have a fresh pot of joe waiting for you.


2. Stay on schedule

If you find yourself getting lost in your coffee and end up running late, create a friendly reminder to stay on track. Schedule lights to turn on shortly before you need to leave. When you see the light, you know it is almost time to head for the door. You can even set the light to turn off to conserve electricity or remain on all day for a well-lit home.


3. Freshen up

At the end of a long day, the comforts of home offer a warm welcome. Sense of smell is closely linked to emotion and memory. Popular wax-melting air fresheners offer a wide range of scents and are perfectly complemented by Wi-Fi plugs. Activate your air freshener before returning to be greeted by your favorite aroma.


4. Coming and goingEnbrighten Wi-Fi 2-Outlet Switch

The Enbrighten app features a unique option that takes your control to another level. If location permissions are activated, you can set an automation to turn ON/OFF connected equipment. Commands are issued as you arrive or leave based on a range you choose. For example, you can turn on an entryway lamp when you are two blocks from your home to avoid searching for a switch in the dark.


5. Speak it into existence

Once you kick back or crawl into bed, your relaxation doesn’t need to be interrupted by minor inconveniences. Through direct compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Home, voice control is easy, and additional equipment isn’t necessary. Commands like, “Alexa, turn on the bedroom fan,” allow you to stay comfortable without lifting a finger.


6. STay In The Know

Another handy feature of Enbrighten Wi-Fi smart controls is the ability to monitor your devices from anywhere. If the plug is not connected to electricity, it is listed as offline. This is beneficial during power outages to determine when the issue is resolved. You can also activate offline notifications to receive alerts when your smart controls are disconnected.
