How many times have you turned your way to work because you do not remember if you shut down your iron or hair straightener?
If you're worried that one of those days is burning you house with your hair products, there's a simple fix. All you have to do is install a smart plug.
Smart plugs ($ 25 on Amazon) is exactly what they sound like. You plug it into a wall outlet and then everything you plug into the smart connector can be remotely controlled by an app on your phone.
So, instead of sitting at work worried that you should call from the fire department, you can just go to the app and turn off everything connected to the smart plug. It is a super fast and easy solution that takes zero technical skills.
Many smart plugs can also be controlled by your smart home assistant, like Google Home ($ 99 at Walmart) and Amazon Alexa. So another advantage is that you can easily heat your hair tool while getting ready with just one command, as long as it is connected to your smart contact.
