Smart Gadgets for the Home


The smart home craze is the big deal in terms of modern convenience for the everyday person. With a simple tap on your phone or a quick voice command to systems like Amazon’s Alexa, you can control your devices. This modern ease is great to have and TORCHSTAR offers some great products that can make your home just that much smarter than it was before. In this article, we will be covering some of those great products.



A great place to start is a familiar piece of smart tech, the smart plug. The LITEdge smart plug offered by TORCHSTAR is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa, letting you use your voice to turn appliances plugged into it on or off. By using the free to download LITEdge app, you can set schedules that match your daily routine. These smart plugs also have a power rating of 1200W, meaning you can feel safe using it. If that wasn’t enough, these smart plugs also protect your data by encrypting it, protecting sensitive information from misuse.



From controlling one device to many, we move from a plug to a power strip. The LITEdge smart power strip has 2 USB ports and 3 AC outlets, letting you power and charge electronic devices and appliances that are important to you. This smart power strip can also be controlled by the LITEdge app as well as Alexa, giving you options on how you control it. The 3 AC outlets can be controlled individually, customizing your use of this smart power strip. Like with the smart plugs, you can also set schedules with the LITEdge app timer function to control the use of devices like computers. You also don’t need to worry about fires thanks to the high quality fireproof material this smart power strip is made from.



The inside is not the only place you can enjoy the benefits of a smart home. The LITEdge 2-in-1 outdoor smart plug is TORCHSTAR’s solution for smart outdoor control. Alexa and Google Home compatible, this outdoor smart plug’s dual AC sockets can be controlled with both your phone and voice commands separately. Like with other LITEdge smart products, the LITEdge app lets you set up schedules and timers to fit your lifestyle. Plug in your landscape lighting system to give it an intelligent edge or connect your festive string lights to it for voice controlled holiday cheer. Both waterproof and fireproof, this outdoor smart plug also possesses surge protection, letting you plug higher powered appliances into it.



Smart plugs and power strips aren’t the only smart products that TORCHSTAR has to offer. TORCHSTAR’s 16.4ft LED strip light is a flexible lighting source that can be controlled by Amazon’s Alexa. You can also use your smartphone to set timers, adjust the brightness from 100% to 0% as well as switch the color temperature between 6000K pure white and 3000K warm white. A perfect choice for DIYers, this strip light’s adhesive backing and cuttable length let you use as much length as you need anywhere you desire. The IP65 waterproof rating makes this strip light great for both indoor and outdoor applications. It’s also safe, like other strip lights, it uses low voltage power, specifically DC 12V, to light up, reducing the risk of electric shock.



The smart home is a modern marvel that is becoming more affordable every day. With plugs and power strips as well as light strips that can be used indoors and outdoors, TORCHSTAR’s smart products are a great way to see the benefits of a smart life.
