What you need to know
- Satechi has released a single outlet Smart Socket for EU markets.
- Single outlet is a follow up to the popular HomeKit dual outlet.
- Newest offering is available for purchase on Amazon.
Satechi has quietly released a single outlet follow-up to one of our favorite HomeKit accessories for the EU market. First spotted by SmartApfel, the slimmed down outlet is now available for purchase on Amazon.de (opens in new tab), and it includes smart home staples such as scheduling, energy monitoring, and of course, voice controls via Siri.
The updated plug connects directly to HomeKit via Wi-Fi, which allows it to work without an additional hub. Like all Wi-Fi HomeKit accessories, the plug is only compatible with 2.4ghz networks, but set up involves just a simple scan of the HomeKit code from within the Home app.
Once added to the Home app, the outlet will be available for automations and scenes. Advanced features, such as energy monitoring can only be found from within the Satechi Home app (opens in new tab).
Solo follow up to a HomeKit favorite
The latest HomeKit smart outlet from Satechi slims down by offering just 1 compact plug. This socket connects directly to HomeKit without the need of an additional hub.
