Got some power outage this week and our white noise machine in our room reset during the night when the power got back, with a high volume
I thought I could get a smart plug that can handle power outage state. Got myself a kasa mini plug. Those plug get back to their previous state after a power outage
Is there a way to override that feature and get an always off after power outage ?
Otherwise, is there smart plug with this feature?
I don’t think the smart plug will help you in this case, because the problem is the white noise machine. In a power outage, it’s still going to lose power and then have power restored. Even if the power restored is that a different level, it will probably still reset itself to the higher level. In other words, I don’t think the volume of the white noise machine is based on the amount of current it receives.
That said, there are some smart plugs that stay off after a power outage. What country are you in? The device selection does vary.
The following FAQ is old but probably still applies, although there may be individual model differences.

I’m in Canada. Was looking for a always off smart switch or one we can choose the state after power outage. The night we have a power outage, it will stays off in the middle of the night instead of turning on the volume …
