The HYDROS WiFi Smart Plug is a smart power outlet designed to work with the CoralVue HYDROS platform. The Smart Plug provides a single AC outlet that is WiFi controllable using the HYDROS app for Android and iOS/Apple mobile devices. You can turn outlets on and off wirelessly over a 2.4 GHz WiFi frequency. The Power 4 has a signal range of 98 feet, so you can place power strips around your home without any difficulty connecting to your modem or router. The wireless connectivity means you can control your Smart Plugs free from the constraints of a communication cable, so you can place the outlets anywhere in your home. The key difference between the HYDROS Smart Plug and the HYDROS Power 4 Power Strip, other than the number of controllable outlets, is that the Smart Plug can measure the current and wattage of the device it is powering and alert you if it moves out of tolerance. The beauty of this is that you can control all these different outlets that are being used for different purposes using a single app.
Through the HYDROS app, you can create rules and schedules to control different pieces of aquarium equipment, like pumps, powerheads, lights, heaters, algae scrubbers, UV sterilizers, protein skimmers, and whatever else you may want to control on demand or put on a schedule. Like the Power 4, the Smart Plug outlet has a status LED to indicate whether an outlet is on or off.
