ConnectSense In-Wall Smart Outlet appears to be a no-frills power socket, but HomeKit support means its two plugs can be separately turned on or off with an iPhone. Plus, it monitors how much power is flowing.

ConnectSense In-Wall Smart Outlet puts HomeKit in your walls

“We’ve made the In-Wall Outlet faster, more powerful, easier to use, and designed to seamlessly fit into any home or commercial space,” said Adam Justice, founder and CEO of ConnectSense.

As its name suggests, this product needs to be wired into a home’s electrical system. But once there, each individual plug can be activated through capacitive touch-controlled buttons, or voice commands through Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

In addition, the In-Wall Smart Outlet offers monitoring of the total power usage of each outlet with real-time voltage readings.

The ConnectSense Smart In-Wall Outlet with HomeKit sells for $79 and $99 for the 15A and 20A versions, respectively.

Or the Smart Outlet2 for simpler installation

Those who don’t want to commit to a in-wall socket can turn to the ConnectSense Smart Outlet2. This plugs into a regular wall socket and adds HomeKit support, plus Alexa and Google Home.

It’s available for $59.95.

Of course,ConnectSense‘s is not the only option. Satechi makes a HomeKit-compatible smart plug, and so does Belkin.
