Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. When it comes to smart home controllers…Ezlo Innovation is doing what its name implies. It is out with the PlugHub Energy…a combination smart home hub, smart plug and energy monitor….and it sells for under forty dollars. VP of product Roger Gregory…
“Most consumers know what it is…you can plug it in …it will function as a smart switch as one would expect. But then we unravel additional functionality. We actually add in that hub capability so it will talk to and control other devices in your home. So that’s pretty exciting.”
It works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and a wide range of smart home gear. There’s also a new smart home hub… USB powered…called the Atom…that might be the solution for many households. Find more info at www.getvera.com.
