Hi guys - I’m looking for recommendations for a reliable smart outlet that will give me energy readings. I have a few of these https://www.smartthings.com/products/samsung-smartthings-outlet-2016 and they work flawlessly.
I would love to just get another one of these outlets, however it is only rated for a max load of 300w, and the projector I want to use it with is rated up to 380w. Do you think that would be OK? Is anyone using this outlet with loads > 300 watts?
I see there are some other devices, like the Aeon Labs smart switch 6 that apparently goes up to 1500 watts. But I am not sure if it is as reliable (no network dropouts etc) and if indeed I can turn off its colored light using just SmartThings and nothing else.
What smart outlets are you using that you love and can recommend? Thanks!
As a side note, in my case I will never use this outlet for power on/off - it will always be in the On position. But the main thing I want it for is to be able to monitor the energy usage (and to detect when its been left on too long).
