What is the function of the smart socket?
[Introduction] The arrival of the intelligent era, let the intelligent gradually deep into all aspects of our lives, the socket has become a smart product. Today, thousands of small series will introduce the smart socket function and installation method.
What is a smart socket?
       In smart homes, the socket is a key component that provides all electrical equipment, and the control functions are beyond doubt. By applying advanced communication and network technologies, the socket organically connects various home-related subsystems, enabling home internal information sharing and communication, and exchanging information with the home external network through the home smart gateway. Through the remote control of the owner, the home can be safely monitored and remotely controlled by various household appliances and facilities.

Smart socket, now usually refers to the built-in Wi-FI module, through the client of the smart phone to perform functional operation of the socket, the most basic function is that the mobile phone client can remotely control the on/off current of the socket and set the time switch of the socket.
The basic function classification of smart socket:

1. Leakage protection: Personal electric shock occurs in the circuit. When the grounding is abnormal, the power is cut off, and the reaction time is extremely short, within 25 microseconds. There is no danger of electric shock.

2. Lightning protection: In the event of lightning strikes, the circuit can be cut off in an instant to protect all electrical equipment used.

3. Overcurrent protection: It can protect the electrical equipment used when there is surge and high current in the circuit.

4. Short circuit protection: When the electrical equipment used is short-circuit abnormal, the power supply can be cut off within 25 microseconds.

5. Overvoltage protection: When the external circuit voltage is higher than the general electrical limit, it can protect the electrical appliance and extend the service life of the electrical appliance.

6. Undervoltage protection: When the external circuit is too low, it can protect the electrical appliance from damaging the electrical appliance when it is harmful to the electrical appliance.

7. Special functions: Wi-Fi enhancement, temperature and humidity sensing and other functions.

8. Control function: Users can remotely control household appliances and perform electricity statistics through the mobile phone APP.

Smart socket installation method

When the smart switch socket is installed, the wall mounted smart switch socket should be no less than 1.8 meters from the ground; the concealed smart switch socket should be no less than 0.3 meters from the ground to prevent children from electric shock.

If you touch the finger or insert the metal object into the hole of the power supply, you must use the safety intelligent switch socket with the safety cover; the construction wiring requirement of the single-phase two-eye intelligent switch socket is: when the hole is horizontally arranged, it is “left zero right fire”. "In the vertical arrangement, it is "zero under fire"; the wiring requirements of the single-phase three-eye intelligent switch socket are: the uppermost grounding hole must be firmly connected to the grounding wire, connected and connected, and must not be connected. The remaining two holes are wired according to the rule of “Left Zero Right Fire”.

It is worth noting that the neutral wire and the protective ground wire must not be misconnected or integrated; the refrigerator should use a separate three-eye smart switch socket with protective grounding. It is strictly forbidden to connect the grounding wire to the gas pipeline to avoid serious fire accidents. To ensure the absolute safety of the family, the intelligent switch socket of the range hood should also use the three-eye intelligent switch socket. The protection of the grounding hole must not be taken lightly; Often used for bathing and showering, easy to wet, it is not suitable to install ordinary smart switch socket.

to sum up

In the era of the rise of smart homes, smart sockets are worthy of recognition in terms of practicality. It is recommended that different control modes be set for home appliances or other devices according to their own needs. However, when you buy a smart socket, you must look for the brand and carefully purchase it so that the quality is guaranteed.
